Tahiti Motel

Wildwood Crest, New Jersey, United States

The Tahiti Motel was opened in 1963. Its original owner was Robert Gerhardt Jr.

It is 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.

The Tahiti Motel was demolished in December of 2004.

It appears the letters of its sign were saved and displayed (at least at some point) at the nearby Tangiers Hotel which is also from the same era and has an A-frame out front that used to be a coffee shop but is now their office.
