This Astro Motel looks like a launching pad for space ships and rocket. Check out those huge fins on the car port.

Buena Park, CA

The Cloud 9 Motel features a couple of 3 leaf clovers on its marquee. Or perhaps they're clouds? Either way, it makes for a unique looking sign.

Anaheim, CA

The Magic Carpet Motel sports a genie that actually glows at night. Unfortunately, this genie no longer glows. The sign was removed during the Disneyland Resort expansion.

 

 

711 Motel
Buena Park, CA

The 711 Motel and travel trailer park is an old sign in the Orange County area of Southern California. Though the marquee sign itself is somewhat nondescript, the colors on this sign stand out.

 

 

Waite Motel (Gone)
Long Beach, CA
Photo courtesy Georg Balandran

The Waite Motel is a good looking sign that still has its neon sign intact. Not sure that this is a googie sign but it's pretty cool nonetheless.

 

UPDATE 08/13 : Unfortunately the Waite Motel sign has been gone for years. 08-13
