The Western Motel in Santa Clara features some of the best neon in town. A vintage sign amidst rapidly declining roadside eye catchers, the Western is a throwback to an era where a special neon sign may have meant more business.

 

UPDATE 08/12 : For the most part, the neon on this sign is gone. The sign still remains and looks good in the day. 08-12

The Sands Motel features color TV and phones! The old marquee shows off the motels convenient "refrigerated air" and color TV.

 

UPDATE 03/09 : The Sands Motel sign has been removed and replaced with a standard plain version. Not sure if the enter sign still kept its neon. 03-09
