Here's a real googie looking motel marquee for the Moon Motel in Howell, NJ. At night, the two side rockets light up. 08-01

UPDATE 07/07 : The Moon Motel is now called the Blue Moon, but according to the Blue Moon, the original marquee still remains. Many thanks to Christopher Hammersla for update. 07-07

UPDATE 08/07 : The Moon Motel marquee is still there. The night time illumination is not what it could be as the owner has spent quite a sum to keep it lit without much success. Only the MOON MOTEL part lights up presently. Anyway, not a place for the squeamish. By my standards/expectations, I give it a D PLUS. Many would flunk it, but the sheets/towels were clean, there were no roaches and my girlfriend did not bolt. Actually, a real good cleaning/paint job/carpet and a repaired pool would easily improve the place. Many thanks to Christopher Hammersla for update. 08-07

The Vestal Motel is a grand looking early to mid-century sign that still appears to have its neon intact. Also features free HBO, which shows it's up with current times.

The colors are very West Coast in style at the Motel 47, but there are no palm trees at this motel.

Now what exactly is Amherst known for other than the site of the Hindenburg's last days? Well, though that was Amhurst, NJ and this is Amherst, NY, check out the Blue Dolphin Motel. Does this make sense? Didn't think so.

A beautiful hand-painted mural of a Thousand Island shoreline highlights this bright and cheerful sign at Gunn's Corner. The motel is aptly named Gunn's Corner Motel.

 

 

Metropolitan Motel

The Metropolitan Motel is a true image of an old time motor court. The sign itself appears be straight out of a main street penny arcade.
