Here's another old motel located in Oakland. It appears that the sign for the Alpine Hotel is porcelain and appears ready to light up with a little bit of extra care and effort.

Check out this quaint hotel lining this street in Emeryville, CA. Well, at least it used to be here. The Ritz Hotel was also demolished by the City of Emeryville.

The H-B Hotel in Oakdale, California still features an old west style and type of marquee. Not quite sure if this hotel is still in business or whether the building itself is around.

UPDATE 12/09 : Here's an updated photo of the Ryde Hotel signage in Walnut Grove, CA. The hotel isn't a product of the '50s, as it has been around since the 20's, but has a cool sign that always catches the eye. The hotel is located in the Delta on old Highway 160 running along the Sacramento River. It still is a hotel to this day and has a cool event room in the basement that was a speakeasy back in the day. Many thanks to Jon Shackelford for updated photo and info. 12-09
