The Sunset Palms Motel is a nicely neon 'd marquee that's right on Sunset Blvd.


UPDATE : The Sunset Palms marquee is now in danger due to new ownership of this motel. According to the manager of the Sunset Palms, the new owners plan to remove the sign, or leave the vertical 'motel' part of the sign and put a new name up.
