Kool Breeze Motel

Kool Breeze Motel is located on Irving Boulevard which is a large thoroughfare which stretches from Irving all the way to downtown Dallas, changing to Industrial Boulevard near downtown. (Click here for map)

The sign is red and white, but I thought it looked great photographed in B&W. You can see from the shadows on the sign that the neon is still intact, but I know not if the neon still functions.

Even when the neon is broken of and gone, leaving only the holes on the surface, these old signs with their stylized fonts still look super cool.

Unfortunately, this sign is the scant bit of kitsch that remains of this motor court. The facade and all surfaces of the building have been painted the same dull porridge color, and I suspect they rent rooms out by the hour. *wink wink nudge nudge*

The Kool Breeze looks/sounds like a great place to hide out after that 3am bank heist. It's very noiry. This posting reminds me--there are a couple of old motels/hotels here in Saint Paul which I must go and photograph.
