During my September 2009 Route 66 road trip, I took ~900 photographs, but this, from Day 7, 09/11/2009, is 1 of my favorites:

The only road trip I took during which I stayed in many hotel-motels was my Route 66 journey; the rest of my road trips 2002-2011 were done staying with family & friends. Thus, I did not spend much time in these vintage places during my travels: Holiday Inn, Howard Johnsons, Sheraton & Travelodge

BTW, the featured vintage ads last week:
Train Tuesday (auto-train, GM, Hiawatha & Southern Pacific)
Flying Thursday (Delta, Mexicana, Northwest, Pan American)
Boating Saturday (Chris-Craft, Evinrude, Johnson, Ranger)

I have been down most of Route 66. As a mater of fact, if you drive through Grants New Mexico there is a Laguna in a fenced in area with a lot of other old cars.

I did drive through Grants NM in 2009, but I missed that, I think. This was the last thing I saw in Grants b/c Highway 122 was closed due to a collision:
