The Sunset Palms Motel and its sign still stands out for those passing down Sunset Boulevard. Although the streets have been cleaned up quite a bit from a couple of decades ago, small treasures such as this one still light the memory of Sunset Boulevard's past.

Just down the street from the El Royale Motel is The Charles Motel. The bold red color of the signage here makes it appear as if the two locations are related, or at least share the same sign painter. 11-10

Here's an older photo of Roy's Motel and Cafe. In the past decade, the Roy's sign has become one of the most oft photographed along the road for both Route 66 fans and social media pundits.

The motel was built in 1938 as a gas station on Route 66. The location is named off its original owner Roy and Vilma who sold the place to Buster Burris, another legend of the road. T Albert Okura of Juan Pollo Chicken fame purchased the whole town of Amboy in 2003. 10-20
