Queen City and Great Western Motels

The Queen City Motel is all about the sign! It looks so awesome at night as youre driving down 24 highway! The Crown blinks -I mean what more can ya ask for? It's ok inside, too, but not what you'd call vintage styled. It's clean and cheap!

The Great Western is also on 24 highway, only East.
24 was probably very busy as a highway during the forties and fifties, and the motels were jumpin'-

Hey kids, let's play mini golf!

Cool Crest is named for both the era of "coolness" and the fact that it is located on a hill, which enabled the pre-airconditioned world to catch a breeze! So retro and fun, it still has mini golf, go karts, pizza, availablity for birthday parties, and of course, now, video games. Another popular date spot, "for those who think young".
