Here's an old sign for the Plaza Motel, found in the
Sacramento area. Not sure if the neon still lights up.
UPDATE 08/12 : The motel marquee is history, part of the West Sacramento redevelopment that has taken place along West Capitol. Just about all of the old signs that used to make this area special for roadside fans is now gone. 08-12

The Glass Slipper Inn looks to be a Palo Alto landmark. Not sure
how long this place has been around, however.

The White Cottage Motel in Vallejo, CA still features an old sign with broken neon. Once probably
quite a motor cottage for guests, this motel appears to be a shell of
its former self.

Don't quite remember where this motel is at, other than its off the 395.
This sign for the Andruss Motel still appears to be in great shape.. perhaps new.
UPDATE 04/06 : The Andruss Motel is in Walker, California on US Hwy 395. The sign was erected in 1960 when Ray and Margaret Andruss bought "Hickson's Fish Camp" (built in 1957) and expanded the four room, knotty pine, rustic board and batten ranch style building into the "All modern...Water Cooled, Thermostatically Controlled Heat" with "Heated Pool, Lounge Room with TV, Inn Room Coffee, Excellent Hunting and Fishing Area, " 12 unit, birch paneling, modern American Motor Court. We are the seventh owners. -
