Comments about Spirit Halloween Bates Motel Sign:

We've had this sign for four months and we're disappointed. It's a unique sign and people love it. But it's so flimsy and delicate. It feels cheaply made and really it's not worth what I paid for it. Please make this more durable. Overall though, it's okay.

I purchased for Halloween and it was on sale. It's cute, just should be made stronger and I could see it easily cracked.

    Comments about Spirit Halloween Bates Motel Sign:

    I have had this sign for 16 years, 4 moves, in and out of storage the whole time. Yes the plastic is cracked in a few places, but considering all it's been through I think it's held up quite well. I have not had to replace a bulb yet...knock on wood.

      Comments about Spirit Halloween Bates Motel Sign:

      We specialize in classic horror, and what could be more classic than Psycho? Until this year, this movie did not have any representation in our display. We saw the sign and immediately saw the opportunity to build a set around it. (Which we did using Spirit items purchased locally) It is the perfect item to draw the eye to your window display. Behind the sign, we have a 5' skeleton with a wig and a dress sitting in a wing-backed chair. This new addition got many compliments.

      The only con is that this cannot be used outside and it is rather delicate. We would have liked to hang it out on the parkway like the actual sign in the movie. This however, actually worked out better. Looks great and cannot beat the price! Thanks Spirit!

      Comments about Spirit Halloween Bates Motel Sign:

      It arrived with cracks on both sides of the sign. I was surprised at how thin and flimsy the plastic was because the other reviews were so favorable.

      On a positive note, once the light is turned on and mounted to a wall, it looks very cool. Your guests would not notice the imperfections. It turned out to be a nice addition to our Psycho decorations.

          Sign is made out of plastic. Vacancy words do not flicker very good. Otherwise I like the sign and it is spooky on my front door.

          Comments about Spirit Halloween Bates Motel Sign:

          Halloween is one of my top "holidays" of the year, and this sign represents a great Hitchcock film. It was a neat front window display and will now go on my man cave. The wiring is good and safe. On the down side, it is very delicate. I do like it but this is the second one I've purchased.

                Comments about Spirit Halloween Bates Motel Sign:

                Knowing that the sign was indoor use only, I did not think it would be the high durability signs made for outdoor use. Even so, I was extremely disappointed in the quality of the actual sign.

                The back is corregated plastic - about as thick as cardboard box. Which is okay. But the front of the sign is VERY thin plastic. Not much thicker than a couple of the flimsy plastic bags you get from grocery stores.

                There's no way you can replace the bulbs. Even though there are instructions for replacing them, trying to do so will destroy the sign.

                It is so flimsy, that it arrived with so many rips and tears in the thin plastic, that the sign was unrecognizeable.

                    This sign looks cool until you plug it in, there is only one small lightbulb behind all those words and you can't read it. I tried to hang it in my porch facing the street and you couldn't tell what it said.

                    Waited forever to get this, glad I finally did! Bigger than anticipated but works fine and love it! My only gripe would be, it arrived a bit bent at the top (its a flimsy plastic) but, its hardly noticable. Love it!

                        The plastic is too thin. At night all you see is the light bulbs you can't make out what the words say because all you see is 4 light bulbs...... dissapointed... seemed like a cool idea

                          This sign is great!! Never seen something so wicked. Looks good not lit up too. I have hung it in my bay window over my "norman's Mother" prop i made in a rocking chair, and the sign tops it off~~Getting lots of compliments and "where'd ya get it??" The flickering bulbs in the vacancy portion are very dim, and one of mine came burnt out. Not sure where to find a replacement flickering bulb, but replaced with standard bulb same vol/wattage and it looks just fine.Too bad the backing is like cardboard, and it snaps onto the plastic part of the sign which worries me that the snaps will break out of the cardboard when opening to replace a bulb. For the money though, what a deadly addition to my collection!!

                                    Like so many others have said, this is a great, authentic homage to a great movie. The material is really flimsy, but if kept inside (like instructions say to do so), it will hold up fine.

                                    I would say a big con for me though, was that the lights aren't as bright as the picture shows or as others have said. Maybe it is just my sign, but it should be displayed where you can see it relatively closely. I placed it in an upper window above my driveway hoping it would show well from the road, but it is barely legible.

                                        The sign is not easily to read and the 'no' does not really flash on and off as advertised.

                                            The bulbs behind the sign are positioned poorly and looking at this sign all you see are blue and red circles, they dont spread out the light enough to see the words.

                                            This sign looks great! We hung it outside our front door for our Halloween Party and it was a big hit! We went as the shower scene from the original Psycho and Norman Bates dressed as "mother" for the party and this tied in nicely with our "theme". Very fun and realistic! Thanks!

                                            Great sign!! We have it hanging in my daughters dormer window. I wish it was a little bigger though.

                                              After reading that it's best not to use this product outside, I decided to buy it and display it in my apartment window. It's bigger than I expected (pro), but also a little dim (con). However, people 20 feet away can read it and it's WAY cheaper than trying to custom make a similar sign that would be brighter. People have commented that it's flimsy, but for the price, the durability is just fine. The day I put it up I took pictures of my apartment window displays and got complimented in the parking lot for them.

                                                  Whenever I add another piece to my halloween collection, I remind myself that what goes up, must come down. After purchasing the shower curtain last year, it was a no-brainer that I had to have the Bates Motel sign. This will be the perfect compliment to the psycho shower scene, a HUGE hit last year. Thanks spirit -- we are kindred!

                                                  we really deck our house out for Halloween and as soon as I saw this I knew we had to have it! the only con about is it that it's pretty flimsy plastic and has a cardboard backing. I'm a little leery that it will crush or tear if not stored properly. it looks fantastic lit up and is very bright,
                                                  "vacancy" even appears to flicker slightly.
