This old, battered, neon sign sits atop some newer businesses along Lakeshore Rd in Oakville. I was a little surprised to realize there really is an hotel on the second floor above the shops. It has gotten some very mixed reviews online, however.

The Oakville Inn is most conveniently located right in downtown Oakville which is also conveniently mere blocks from the lake and a marina. Restaurants, shops, theatres, and museums are all within easy walking distance.

  1. Love signs like this. Good eye.

  2. Oh how classic! I can almost picture blinking lights at night. Looking forward to more signs.

  3. Hmmm. Conveniently located but I think I’ll stay somewhere else. 🙂

  4. I like to see signs like this, I hope the food is delicious!

  5. A step back in time. Just recently someone built four suites over their shop here in town. They call it a boutique hotel. You can book a spa weekend, because their downstairs business is a full-service salon. I don’t know what business has been like. We are a very small town with not a lot of tourist traffic. I hope it works out for them. They put a lot of work and money into the project. – Margy

    • I was talking to some friends just recently who said they’ve started going on romantic weekends a couple times a year and just drive out to a nice B&B or small hotel not far away. So maybe….

  6. Old hotel signs make me think of detective novels.

  7. Thank you for showing something else only seen on TV. Probably a piece of the very essense of America. May time and life continue to treat you all kind.
