One of the earliest motel referral services was United Motor Courts. This association was based in Santa Barbara, Calif. and was made up of “a friendly group of independent owners of motor lodges…”
From the 1930s-1950s United Motor Courts produced some dazzling motel guides, most with pictures of each court. These guides from the 1950s have a cover illustrated with family car. The U.M.C. shield logo sign and the slogan, "A Sure Sign of Comfort from Coast to Coast"
Insides is a guide, by state, of Motor Court Hotels each with a brief description including each page includes sightseeing opportunities.
