This nice neon sign sits outside of the Joy Motel, with neon boomerang arrow pointing the way in. Check out the different colors on this sign and the way the boomerang melds in with the rest of the marquee.

Step into the Pink Motel and you may feel like you are in a fantasyland, but not just because of the neon pixie on the sign. Lodgers will find the action along Highway 441 out their front door and the serenity of the Oconaluftee River out the back. Picnic tables and grills allow visitors to experience the Great Smoky Mountain outdoors. Lillian Schmitt, a long-time manager of the Pink Motel and the Newfound Lodge in Cherokee, passed away at age 85 a couple of years ago, but the business continues on.

 

UPDATE 08/06 : (Below) Here are a few additional photos of the Pink Motel of Cherokee, NC taken at night.

The Pink Motel features a sign is still a real eye-catcher for travelers passing through, especially at night. This sign hearkens back to the day when unique neon signs used to grace various roadside towns, competing for the hard earned dollar of the weary driver. 08-06
