By looking Supernatural I saw a lot of fancy motel rooms.

For example:

  • one full of hunters trophies and oil paintings
  • one with a lot of glass, even the room separator was glass

If I think back, all of the rooms had a theme...

My question is: May there be a record, why and how this rooms were selected?

  • The question didn't need the issue of whether actual motels have themed rooms as it's secondary to your actual primary question. There would be no harm in another question about the realism of these sets but frankly that's something you could easily search for. There are a great many "themed" roadside hotels in the US.

  • @Paulie_D What I intendet with this question was this: Is it common, that this rooms are so "themed" or is it all set-design? Now I know: it is both. There are themed rooms, but this for supernatural are all additional designed to fit the plot Jul 3, 2019 at 10:42

I found the answer in this wiki post:

The sets are always excellent, with wonderful attention to detail, the work of Production Designer Jerry Wanek and Art Director John Marcynuk. [...] Jensen said of the motel rooms: "Jerry Wanek's just a crazy guy, and likes to use his talents when he gets the ability to, and the motel rooms are his passion.
