King's Inn Motel [gone]
Rahway, NJ
Ivory Tower Motor Inn
Green Brook Township, NJ
Super 8
Raritan, NJ
These three motels were originally part of the Ivory Tower Motel chain. There is another location in West Reading, PA. The Rahway location was demolished in 2013. I don't know if there were any others built. These buildings appear to be from the 1960s. The Raritan location was built in 1963. For more, see this website.

Wyndham Hotel
Mount Laurel, NJ
The Wyndham Hotel was built in 1975. The building features three curved facades and a round structure on the roof. The building was renovated in 2000 but it is still pretty much intact. [map]

former Ascot Motel
Atlantic City, NJ
The Ascot Motel was built in 1962. It was one of the few surviving mid-century modern motels left in Atlantic City. These photos are from 2012. The motel was closed in 2013. In 2014, the motel was renovated and reopened as TRYP by Wyndham Atlantic City. The Ascot Motel signs are gone now but the exterior of the building looks the same. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3. [map]

Royal Motel
Secaucus, NJ
The Royal Motel was built in 1960. In 2003, the sign was altered as shown in the photo on the right from 2009. [map]

Northview Motel
Roebling, NJ
The Northview Motel appears to be from the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

former Hilltop Motel
Belmar, NJ
The Hilltop Motel became a Rodeway Inn sometime after these photos were taken in 2007. The signs have been replaced but there are still mid-century modern looking fins on the buildings. [map]
