This motel was on a corner in which there were several motels. By the 2000's, it had become drug store corner and the motels were gone. The Superior brand was what is called a "referral chain" in the lodging business. The motels are owned independently by local operators, but are promoted like a chain as long as they meet certain criteria. A modern day example that still exists is Best Western.
From Wikipedia: "Other referral chains included "Superior Courts United" (1950, renamed "A Superior Motel" in 1964, last membership renewals 1979) whose four-leaf clover logo ("Travel Superior Courts United Inc. And Be Sure!") graced over 500 motels (mostly on the Atlantic coast) in the mid-1960s." I haven't seen any other Superior outlets in Michigan but I will keep an eye out for it.
