Orange, CA

The Angel Motel in Orange features a colorful marquee out front. The sign is one of the few still existing in Orange County these days.

The Americana Motel still features is triangular marquee. And sometimes, this marquee still lights up in full. The Americana once had a neighbor with a pretty decent motel marquee of its own. But the Silver Moon motel was demolished in 2002 and Beach Boulevard in Orange County lost another reminder from the past.



Anchor Motel

The Anchor Motel still features its themed sign with an anchor on it. This tri-colored sign is still an eye-catcher here in Orange County.

This marquee once had a different look to it, back when the motel was first established.

When it comes to marquees, there are few better than the Silver Moon Motel in Anaheim, CA. With its sign depicting a grinning "silver" moon and large neon lettering, the Silver Moon is a Beach Boulevard landmark. At least until the bulldozer got to it in 2002.

Many thanks to Karen and others for original alert on the Silver Moon demolition.
