The Kona Motel features a tiki like marquee, though not quite on par with some its former neighbors.

The Grove Motel in Garden Grove is one of the last remaining vintage roadside signs in the Orange County town. Located near a former site of Bob's Big Boy, the Grove features a huge marquee that still lights up at dusk.

The Stovall's Space Age in Anaheim is another iteration of the Cosmic Age Lodge above. It's a shame to see these roadside treasure go by.

Welcome to Stovall's Apollo Inn. While here, dine in our coffee shop then take the shuttle over to Disneyland.

Although this extension of Disneyland's Tomorrowland is no more, there's still Stovall's Space Age Lodge in Gila Bend, AZ.

The Cosmic Age Lodge was another Best Western motel nearby Disneyland. This lodge reflected the old era around Disneyland when theme park signage and flashy space age names were all the rage.

The motel is now called the Best Western Stovall's Inn and though the sign is long gone, you can somewhat recognize the old motel building today.

The Americana Motel still features is triangular marquee. And sometimes, this marquee still lights up in full. The Americana once had a neighbor with a pretty decent motel marquee of its own. But the Silver Moon motel was demolished in 2002 and Beach Boulevard in Orange County lost another reminder from the past.
