UPDATE 05/08 : Here's a postcard shot from the 50's of the City Center Motel. The look of the motel appears to be the same, with the exception of the colors and panels on the marquee. Many thanks to Elgin MacMillan for update. 05-08

This Motel sign is a reminder to when the family would pack in the station wagon and take a real road trip across America to see grandma or Aunt Suzie ... or something like that.




Cocanut Grove Motel (Removed)
Phoenix, AZ

Check out the marquee for the Cocanut Grove Motel, located in Phoenix. The name appears to be a play off of the Ambassador Hotel, though the spelling seems strange. This sign was recently removed and replaced by plastic. Oh, and the sign spells the name with an "o" now.
