Long Description:
Western Motel (7600 NW 39th Expressway Bethany, Oklahoma City)
is Eligible for Listing in the National Register of Historic Places: & at the same time on the Oklahoma’s “endangered” Route 66 motels list: See (visit link)

The Route 66, Western Motel was closed for many years but rumors were proved correct when the Motel was reopened to Route 66 trippers, a few years ago, but alas not for long, it now appears to be residential guests only.

At least the Neon sign, wearing its Cowboy Hat, appears to be in good condition.

The historic Motel reopened in 2014 & had an internet presence on YouTube: (visit link)
