What could be more appealing to a hot and weary traveler than a promise of a refreshing motel with a swimming pool? This bathing beauty welcomed cross country patrons to enjoy a cool dip after a hard day on the road. She is double sided, so as to be viewed from both directions. The neon works great, and the sign has been restored in its' original paint combination, and displays beautifully. She is mounted on an unfinished steel platform, with wheels for easy moving. Being steel and neon, she can pose either indoors or outside (by the backyard pool area, maybe.....) These American roadside icons are rapidly disappearing, never to be seen again.
