The Ala Kai motel was built in 1963, and is still in operation today. Couldn't find much early stuff on it.

Here is a postcard from the 1960s :down:

And a couple current ones :down:

I thought it was kind of funny that they have to take the fronds off the palm trees each winter.

Their sign was famous for the surfer girl image, which at some point fell off or was removed, and then restored in 2007. However, you can tell from the early postcard that its not the same design.

Mo-Eye,

Nice research as usual.

I have an old postcard showing the color version of the pic you posted.

Nice. Is it the lighting or is the building actually pink?
