Route 66 Motels
— Tulsa's Historic Route 66 —
The number of roadside motels soared through the 1930s and again after World War Il, following the rise in automobile ownership. As Americans enjoyed the prosperity and freedom of the post-war period, the number of motels in the United States quadrupled.
To attract customers, motel operators erected giant signs to
catch the attention of travelers. Typically an elaborate neon
display helped to communicate the motel's quality and range
