Here's the Capri Motel, which is a cute little mid-century roadside motel, located on El Camino Real in Santa Clara, CA. The Capri features ranch-style architecture with a wonderful Googie neon sign. The Capri Motel has been in business since 1958.

A roadside motel like this sure beats those nearby chain motels, completely devoid of character. 02-09



The Experience Lodge (Demolished)
West Sacramento, CA

The Experience Lodge is a familiar sight for those that traveled along old West Capitol Avenue in West Sacramento. One of the first motels around the corner after heading west over the bridge, The Experience Lodge was known as a seedy place with a great sign.

Unfortunately for roadside fans, the motel was closed and eventually demolished in April 2008.
