Kona Kai Motel - Wildwood Crest

Wildwood Crest, New Jersey, United States

Opened in 1962 by Manuel Santos. Designed and built by Lou Morey.

This motel had a wonderful lava rock wall front entrance with neon signs and tiki torches.

It was commonly referred to as being a part of the Doo Wop style of architecture, named after the popular music of its time, but this style is also referred to as Googie architecture in California and other parts of the country.

Before closing in the early 2000s, the owners appeared to be trying to restore things back to their original 1960s look.

Demolished in January of 2006.
