Sky Palm Motel – Orange, CA

Here is a neat googie jem, located right in the middle of the Tustin Avenue commercial district in Orange, California. This place features a cool neon sign out front, as well rock walls (similar to that of Pann’s), and palm trees.

Motel at night. The a-frame roof at the motels entrance exemplifies the mid-century modern geometric shapes.

Here is a picture of the both the "Motel" pole sign and the neon "vacancy" lit up for the evening.

Here is a close up of the neon portion of the sign.

The Sky Palm Motel is located on 210 N. Tustin St., Orange, CA. The phone number is
(714) 639-6602. Here is a map of the location.

Hey, Brett - Fun little structure - did you stay at this place?

Actually, I did not stay there, as I was unaware of this place. I stumbled upon it by accident when I was driving around the area.

Brett, I love this blog! Just bookmarked it. I'm a huge fan of Googie/Modernist architecture and am always on the lookout for it. Keep up the great work. Love the design on this motel!
