Moana Motel

17610 Foothill Blvd, Fontana, CA

East < GO > West

The Moana Motel still has the attached garages which probably dates it to the 1940s or early 50s at the latest. There are two guest room buildings near the road that had the garages. It's hard to tell if there were a couple more similar buildings or not, there appears to have been room for that.

It is located at 17610 Foothill Blvd, just past Alder Ave.

xThe two buildings nearest the road appear to heve been pretty well preserved, at least cosmetically. The double raised bands on the walls add a nice styling touch.

xThe brightly colored vintage sign is the easiest wat to spot this motel. There's a bunch of tube lighting of some sort on the sign.

xThe sign stands in a grassy courtyard between the driveways.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
