In the Black Hills of South Dakota is Allen's Rocket Motel. The name of the sign hearkens back to the space age era of the 50's and 60's.

To the right is another angle of the Rocket Motel marquee.

A Route 66 motel treasure, The Glancy Motor Hotel in Clinton, OK still features its huge marquee. Unfortunately, the feeling from the owner is that business has been tight. With the loss of the Pop Hicks Restaurant next door a few years ago, Route 66 can't afford to lose another beacon of the Mother Road.
