Featuring a sign that appears to have once been animated, the Western Hills Motel and its marquee still stands in Flagstaff, AZ. The sign was originally painted blue.

Route 66The Hi-Line Motel is located in the Route 66 community of Ash Fork, AZ. Check out this marquee with looks to catch the eye of motorists. The Hi-Line Motel first opened its doors to travelers in 1936 when it was known as the Hi-Line Modern Auto Court.

The motel was still standing tall in 2016 when the photos to the left were taken on a bright sun shiny day. The warm sunlight drew out the orange colors of the neon marquee. Unfortunately it appears that the motel is abandoned at this point. There are only a few motels left in Ash Fork these days.


UPDATE 03/19 : The below photos from around 1999 or 2000 shows a comparison with what the old motel looked like 10 to 15 years prior. 03-19

Here are a couple photos of the Hi-Line back in the 2000's. The motel sign from back then did not look too different from its appearance today. The Hi-Line was just one of the eye catching sights to see along the old Route 66 in Ash Fork.

Route 66The Frontier Motel is located in Peach Springs, AZ right along the Route 66. The Frontier opened for business in 1952. The paint on the sign was recently restored around 2002.

 

UPDATE 04/17 : The Frontier Motel sign is looking a bit worn lately. Not sure if the motel is still open for business based upon what the place looked like the past few times I passed by. 04-17

How about this sign for the Hill Top Motel in Kingman. The motel was built in 1954 and originally came complete with 20 units. The sign itself was repainted in 2009. This is the motel made infamous by housing Timothy McVeigh.

UPDATE 09/21 : New ownership has taken over this motel. The motel sign went dark a couple of years ago and I was worried that the sign was gone, especially since I noticed many other sites had been torn down in other towns during the road trip I was on.

Fortunately, I learned the good news that the motel sign was restored and work has been continuing on the property. Even better, the plants with the needles next to the sign were no longer there when I visited the site in early 2021. Needless to say, I've stepped into the needles more than once while distractedly taking photos of the sign at night and it was painful. Word is the motel is about to open soon in 2021. 09-21
