A motel enthusiast writes a glowing cultural history of America's romance with the motel, accompanied by color and b&w photographs of the most ambitious, quirkiest, and kitchiest architectural trends, neon signs, and amenities designed to draw roadside travelers. Of special interest are the many contemporary shots of now-abandoned, crumbling roadside accommodations, as well as the few old-timers still in business. Annotation c.
