Hey highway travelers....

There is/was a budget motel chain with a logo of a puffy white sheep on a blue background.

If this sounds familiar... do you recall the name of that chain?

Thanks!

(this isn't a travel-quiz question... I'm trying to remember the name, but can't.)

Rings a bell. Their commercial was about counting sheep. I'll try googling around.

LOL, well, I discovered I was thinking of the Serta mattress commercials. So, I'm no help.

Was it regional? What region?

Perhaps more in the East than the West, but I'm not sure about that.

Was that a real hotel or logo of a travel magazine?

It was a budget motel chain in the US.... same concept as that French logo, but much simpler... just a puffy cloud-like white sheep on a blue background.

How long ago? Logos change often.

Certainly the 90s - early 2000s.

(btw, this seems to be the visual equivalent of a song that sticks in your head!)
