The City Center Motel marquee is just down the block from the motel itself... but it's situated in such a way that the sign just can not be missed by the passing motorists.

Check out this marquee at the Rollin' Wheels Motel in Chicago, IL. The motel sign is a throwback to the era when having a TV and air conditioned were considered selling points to the weary travelers looking for a nice place to spend the evening and grab a rest. 12-10

 

UPDATE 08/12 : The marquee is long gone as the motel has been taken over by a chain. 08-12
