E&L Motel
Seffner, FL

The E & L Motel sits on Highway 92 in Seffner, FL. Before I-4 was built, which leads travelers from both FL coasts into the heart of Disney country, 92 was a west to east route through central FL. Today the motel cabins seem to have been converted to low rent housing, but the sign remains the same.



Skylark Motel
Perry, FL

The Skylark outdoes its script lettering sign with some strange architecture over the check-in lobby.





Catalina Motel
Dundee, FL

This sign for the Catalina Motel was spotted in Dundee on US 27. The four-lane road that runs the length of central Florida was a popular tourist route called the Orange Blossom Trail. Citrus canker and early frosts have killed off some of the orange groves along it, but there is still ample opportunity to buy some Florida sunshine. Not far from the Catalina is Cypress Gardens, one of the states first tourist attractions.




Family Inn (Removed)
Sarasota, FL

The Family Inn offers sixteen rooms. For years it was known as the Imperial Motel. Red neon lights up around the crown at night. This is the place to be if you want to sleep like a king. (sic!)


UPDATE 02/09 : Unfortunately, the sign with the crown on top is no more. In its place is a generic rectangular sign. 02-09

Ah, Sarasota, Florida. Home of much roadside quirkiness, including the Allamanda Motel. Keep this motel in mind if you're ever passing through the area. Not sure what the rooms look like, but the marquee is nice.

The Allamanda still sports its fine marquee, although the colors have changed a bit over the years. The photos of the sign in its orange and blue colors is the current look of the sign.
