Kings Inn1918 W 3rd St.Elk City, OK
This large sign replaced a much lower and more modest one in this same location. On the main building there was a smaller sign above the office roof. That sign grew quite large after "western" was added to the motel name. That large versison has been removed in favor of the sign shown above.
Late 50s or early 60s Postcard
Early 60s Matchbook
NOTE: The first postcard mentions the place being a "New Modernistic Motel" in 1954, so I'm surprised there was no mention of even a in-room radio, much less a TV or room phone.
By the time the second postcard was published a few years later the name changed from just McCoy Motel to McCoy Western Motel. There were also several more features listed, including a listing with AAA.
Next up was a matchbook that must have arrived a bit later because
the phone number evolved again. It had started out as a simple 4 digit
number, then they added a 1 digit prefix(5-) to the original and by
then came the alphanumeric prefix (CA 5-) and again the last 4 digits
remained the same.
