During my recent trip to Phoenix, I spent some time in nearby Mesa. Happily, Main Street contains some fine motel architecture - like the Highway Host (above) and the Kiva Lodge (below) - and a sublime sunset on my last day in town.
The video (below) celebrates a terrific motel, the Starlite, which features one of the truly great animated motel signs in the country.
