The book dedicates 3 to 4 pages to a motel (with photos from 1995, and a few if any from the 40s/50s/60s)
Throughout the book has very straight to the point texts about motels, and about the specific motel in each page (usually stating its current status... most of them demolished)
If you are into neon/motel nostalgia, Las Vegas rat pack and photography you will like this book. Altough you can go online and search for old motels, and you might find a lot of them... but at least in this book there is a large selection of motels compiled. If I knew before I buy it what I know now I would still buy it.
