Route 66Travel the east bound direction of Route 66 in Winslow, AZ and you will come across the Knotty Pines Motel and its classic sign. The Knotty Pines Motel originally opened in 1958 and the 45 units at this roadside motel were owned by Ralph Miller and Bill Martin. The Bears Den then became the restaurant and lounge on site.

The Knotty Pines Motel was for the most part demolished and the site is now home to a place called Tom's Tavern. 09-21

Route 66The Westerner Motel used to showcase a really cool sign on the westbound side of Route 66. The sign itself above what appears to be a barber shop features advertisement of a very clean motel. The motel opened in the early 1950s or late 1940s with 32 rooms.

Unfortunately, the sign was removed recently and the two story motel room building was being redone. 09-21

The LZ Budget Motel opened up during the post-war boom when travelers were headed west along the old highway. The motel that used be at 1102 E. 2nd Street in Winslow was demolished several years ago and is now gone. The Falcon Restaurant has lots one of its neighbors of the past decades. 09-21

Route 66Here is the Frontier Motel and its good sized sign that is found in the town of Truxton, AZ. The Frontier Motel appeared to still be in good condition and but I was unsure whether the motel was taking in customers back in the 1990s to its 9 rooms.

The motel was built in 1951 as the Frontier Motel and Cafe. Ray and Mildred Barker purchased the motel in 1957. I ran into some painting going on at the site in the early 2000s after the motel received a preservation grant but the motel deteriorated and the place closed down in 2011. Ray Barker passed away in 1990 and Mildred Barker passed in 2012. A New Zealand tour operator purchased the Frontier Motel in 2014 however the attempt to reopen the motel and cafe came to an end when the caretakers abruptly resigned as per a posting from Route 66 News. The last time I looked a few years ago, the motel sign was faded and the paint had peeled. 09-21

Route 66The Twilite Motel is a location found on 2010 E. Route 66 in Flagstaff, AZ. The motel was originally named the Gaslite Motel and looks to have dated back to the 50s or 60s taking advantage of the post-war boom.

Based on the sign advertising here, the Twilite Motel featured room prices that started at $18, king beds, and HBO. 09-21

Route 66Here's the Arizona 8 Motel and its colorful sign. The Arizona 8 Motel features a rather colorful and prominent lettering for color TV. The sign also advertises kitchenettes and clean rooms.

I haven't seen this sign for years. Not sure what became of this motel and sign. 09-21
