Here's a nice shot of the West-Wind Motel in all its neon greatness. This Illinois rest stop is worth a look-see.

Here's the Golden Door Motel, complete with revolving wooden door on the motel. Mechanical signs like this one are few and far between in this day and age.

This fine neon sign depicting the Arrowhead Lodge still lights up the sky in Osage Beach. Just check out the outline on this neon marquee.

Check out this neon shot of the Courtesy Motel of Urbana, IL. The pulsating lines just waves about but does not quite hide the fact that the neon "E" is in the wrong color!

Indiana is home to the Diplomat Motel. Shown here in neon splendor, the Diplomat was redone recently.

Check out the Brer Rabbit Motel and its smiling bunny on its sign. Quite the smile, to say the least.

 

UPDATE 08/08 : This great sign is GONE.  As of a week ago, there's now a very plastic box that simply says the name of the place. Many thanks to Gary for update. 08-08
