Description:
Hawaiian Gardens Resort Motel was a large hotel, restaurant, and bar complex with several lounges and restaurants overlooking the placid waters of Lake Oahu. Native chefs, Hawaiian drinks, glimmering glow-worm ceilings, lava rock walls and an erupting volcano made it "the stuff of legends."

It opened sometime in the 1950s and closed before the century was out. The site was totally demolished in the early 2000s.

I saw some plastic lights like the ones seen here on eBay.
They were those RV lights made in the 50S.
Wonder if these are the same.

Cool photo.
