In 1959, the 50 ft tall, neon, Roy’s sign was erected, making the town of Amboy visible for miles and became the “must see” attraction to all visitors.

The sign’s neon tubing is currently being restored and will be repainted afterwords. Amboy plans to throw a public event to showcase the relighting of our famous sign.

Along with the Roy’s sign being erected in 1959, the construction of the motel’s new Mid-Century modern “inclined roof flying over a glassed wedge” guest reception office both became vital milepost beacons for modern architecture for over a decade.

After the restoration of Amboy’s Roy’s sign, we plan to restore the neon lighting along the ceiling’s outer edge. Because we are constantly gaining new Route 66 and Amboy merchandise, apparel, and collectible souvenirs, we plan on remodeling the interior of the guest reception office and relocating the gift shop inside.
