Here's another unique motel marquee that still graces the area around the Vegas strip. This motel with its swooping star complete with bulbs must have been quite a sight to see when the neon was still working.

Not sure if this one is name the Apartment Motel or if the sign is just advertising another converted motel/apartment. In either case, the sign is cool with two sharp boomerangs in its makeup. By the looks of things, this place has seen better days.

Here's a shot of the Rummel Motel sign. The Rummel Motel is located just north of the Strip and is near the Stratosphere.



Yucca Motel (Demolished)

The Yucca Motel is another of the motel signs still left along the strip. The question is, how long will this motel last with all of the new development going on these days?


UPDATE 07/10 : The Yucca Motel along busy Las Vegas Boulevard was demolished earlier this year. The 1950's era marquee you see at the left was saved and is now part of the Las Vegas Neon Museum sign collection. 07-10



Things always appear to be changing in Las Vegas. The most recent loss in Las Vegas was the Higgins/Casa Blanca Motel on Las Vegas Blvd. (see photos below). It was demolished and now a billboard advertising condominiums is on the lot. There appears to be hardly any room in the area, so maybe the Rummel and Yucca will be next?

Check out the Del Mar Motel as it sits, or at least used to sit, along Las Vegas Boulevard. The Del Mar was always a familiar sight as you ripped along Las Vegas Boulevard towards downtown. Unfortunately, the motel was bulldozed on August 9, 2005 and is now just a Vegas memory.
