A must see sight for Route 66 aficionados is the Cowboy Motel in Amarillo, Texas. The marquee is still in pristine shape and features a lifelike cowboy with a welcoming grin as big as the Lone Star state.

The Don-Mar Motel and its streamline era sign hasn't fared as well as the Austin Motel above. This place is for sale and waiting to be brought back to its former glory. The Don-Mar was built in 1935.

 

UPDATE 11/05 : The Don-Mar Motor Court will be torn down soon to make room for a new multimillion-dollar development. According to the News 8 website, the development could range from "an auto repair facility, offices, or mixed-use project with retail on the lower level and residential above." Many thanks to John Hickman for update. 11-05

UPDATE 10/06 : The Don-Mar Motor Court on S Congress Avenue was still open as long term lodging in September, 2006. The green and yellow sign to the right of the marquee showed that the motel is still for sale. 10-06

Though not a motel per se, the sign for the Wagon Wheel Apartments is worth a mention on this page.

The Sunset Inn marquee stands tall along the highway and is reminiscent of some of the casino signage (Sunset Station) found in Las Vegas.
