Here's the neon script lettering for the Crescent Motel in Buena Park, CA. The marquee on this motel wasn't much, but this script lettering really caught the eye of travelers passing through near Knott's Berry Farm.

 

UPDATE 10/13 : The Crescent Motel no longer has this neon lettering on the side of the building. In fact, according to this article, it appears that the Crescent Motel is now closed. 10-13

The Oasis Motel is quite a sight, especially as sunset approaches. Near Knott's Berry Farm, the Oasis is a relic from a nearly forgotten time, when the marquee outside made a difference as to where you stayed for the night.

 

UPDATE 11/04 : The Oasis Motel was bulldozed sometime over the last several months and an empty lots now resides in its place. Another Orange County treasure has disappeared off the map. 11-04
