A Collection of Supernatural Motel Signs

Geeking Out
As I've been prepping the Season 8 motels post I was admiring the motel sign in the show. So I put this together for tumblr. Thought I'd share it here also.

I love 'em! They have such a great variety of motel signs and I love the different ways they shoot them.

Do we think they're actually all 'custom made' - that seems very expensive

I imagine it's a mix of both? And I've just realised I missed one of my favourite motels The Centre Motel Hotel. They've used this motel a number of times and it's had both its original name and custom names (and now I'm going to create an addition set I think).

"Too Tired" is probably my fave because the motel room has a motoring theme - including a room divider made of tires. :)

Oh and I love that information on that motel the Humboldt! Thank you for the link. :DD

That's so cool, and there's a lot of work gone into those! Thanks for sharing :D I may snaffle a few pics, with credit of course :)

Thanks for stopping by! :)

I may take you up on that. I was thinking of a tour of motels via Sam&Deans misadventures in the bedroom ;) so if you happen to have the info on the actual eps the motels were in, that would help immensely!

\o/\o/ The signs have always been pretty freaking awesome and I love to see some of them again! This is a nice collection of them!! :D

Thank you!! (and now of course I just realised I missed one of my faves - The City Centre Motel. Looks like I'll have to do another set at some point...;D)

Thank you so much for putting this together, seeing them all side by side in one collection is just wonderful! They're such an iconic part of American culture, and I love all the differing designs and names.

Thanks for sharing :)

This is so cool to see them all together like this. They are so colorful and so many different styles. I'm particularly fond of the owl, the yellow crown, and the obnoxiously bright blue, yellow, and green Bluebird Motel sign. Thanks for posting these. 8-)

They're fun! I love that they have fun with the names (as well as the rooms). And, of course, since posting this I've realised there's a heap more beside these. My OCD wants to kick in and do them all! ;D

These images are so cool, thanks for compiling them! And thanks so much for letting me use one of your collages for my podfic cover.

My pleasure! I'm thrilled one could be used for your podfic cover. :)
