Long Description:
A classic Neon sign glows brightly alongside Route 66 & has done so since 1954, when the Hill Top Motel opened.

Many 66 trippers use the Hill Top Motel as a central starting point for day trips to local and regional attractions, attracted by the large Neon Marquee.

Kingman is proud to have two excellent museums The Powerhouse, and The Mohave Museum of History & Arts, along with the Bonelli House; these provide a glimpse into the history of this region.

From the Roadside Peek website:
"How about this sign for the Hill Top Motel in Kingman. The motel was built in 1954. The sign itself was repainted in 2009. This is the motel made infamous by housing Timothy McVeigh."
