You've Got To See These Cool Motel Signs
Having Martha Davis and The Motels at 96.3 KKLZ's Junefest this year got us thinking about all of the very cool vintage motel signs that can be found all over the world and right here in Las Vegas.
There's just something about these signs that makes you think of hitting the open road and being ready for adventure.
It wasn't that long ago that when you were behind the wheel, driving on a long stretch of highway it was signs like dotted the journey.
So as a proprietor of one of these fine motels might have said to guests, "Thanks for stopping and we hope you enjoy your stay."
