Here's a look at the Polyanna Motel in Las Vegas. Ever wonder why the motel is named after a bird while there's an image of a hat on top of the marquee? That's because this motel used to be called the Sombrero.

Built in 1959, the Tam O'Shanter Motel nowadays gets lost in the hugeness of the casinos on the Vegas strip. Unfortunately, the Tam O'Shanter will soon be swallowed up, bulldozed, and the property developed into an addition to the Venetian. Yet another roadside motel from the Vegas yesteryear will now be a memory.

See Roadside Peek's Lost Treasures feature on the Tam O'Shanter Motel.

 

UPDATE 05/06 : The Tam O'Shanter Motel was shut down in January of 2004 and demolished soon afterwards. 05-06

The Glass Pool Innis home to a glass pool. Yes, this pool actually has windows on its sides that makes for quite a classic effect.

Here's one of the most famous Vegas motels of all... the La Concha Motel. This conch lookin' place still features a googie building and sign, though the marquee lost its top a few years back.
