The treasure of a sign for The Carriage House Motel is reminiscent of the neon treasures that used to dot the roadside back in the day. This neon is still in excellent working condition.

 

UPDATE 08/12 : The Carriage House Inn was demolished a few years ago to make way for a new convention center. Several blocks were removed. 08-12

Check out this cool oid motel along the main drag of West Sacramento. The Experience Lodge in Sacramento features a diver on its neon marquee. From the looks of things, this motel may truly be an experience.

UPDATE 03/09 : Here's another photo of The Experience Lodge's neon sign, before the sign was replaced with a backlit sign. In 2008, the motel was demolished by a controlled burn by the City of West Sacramento as part of its downtown revitalization project.

More photos and information can be found at Roadside Peek's Lost Treasures: feature on The Experience Motel. 03-09
