Travel down Virginia St. in Reno and the Heart O' Town Motel is a can't miss item, both literally and figuratively. Check out the look of this marquee. 02-07

 

UPDATE 08/17 : The Golden West Motel and the Heart o'Town motels in downtown Reno were demolished in September 2016 after being closed and vacant for several years. Virginia Avenue won't be the same. 08/17.

 

 

 

 

Here is the El Dorado Motel in Reno, NV. The El Dorado is an old time survivor in Reno on the old highway to Carson City and Virginia City. Based on the surrounding development in the area, this roadside veteran won't be around much longer. 03-08

The city of Reno continues to modernize and mow down the cute little Route 66 type motels. All that is left of the Savoy Motor Lodge is this sign. Not sure why they didn't take it down, perhaps some collector wanted it. Many thanks to Dan MacPherson for photo and update. 12-08
