Check out this marquee for the RB Motel which appears to have been on site since at least the 1950's. The cowboy or rancher doing the "circle" on the sign itself looks like full featured neon, similar to the letting on the sign itself. This roadside motel and RV park is located in Mesa, AZ.

Found is Prescott Valley is this gem of a motel marquee for the Prescott Valley Motel. The sign itself is shaped and colored to attract the attention of motorists. The motel dates back to 1966.

UPDATE 05-2020: The huge sign for the Prescott Valley Motel or also known as the PV motel was taken down on 4/1/2020. The motel closed after 50 years in business in 2018. In the fall of 2019, the motel structure and the Y-Note Lounge were demolished. Circle K bought up the property despite having a location nearby and will build over the site. Fortunately the sign was preserved after being dismantled with hopes it will be restored and set back up in the community in the future.

A spotlight will be made on this motel and sign in the near future. A visit here in the Spring of 2019 turned out the be the last time I got to see the sign intact on its original site. This is truly a loss of an icon. 05-2020
