An ode to neon lights
Sleep in a Wigwam
- zdan, CNN iReport producer
We usually don't let my wife pick the hotel rooms because she always goes for thrift rather than comfort. Nevertheless, we could not stop her from selecting the vintage accommodations of the Wigwam Motel on our family vacation in 2011. She likes all things 'roadside America' and she thought that staying here would be a lot of fun, which is was. We also had a little family history with the Wigwam chain. My parents stayed in a Wigwam on their honeymoon. The Wigwam hotel chain was built in the 30s and 40s. There were originally 7 locations; three of them are still operating today. The one shown here is in Cave City, KY.
