Travelers Motel - Still Open

Another dive hotel still alive in Boise. This sign for the Travelers Motel looks a lot like the sign for the Olympic Hotel downtown, except the Travelers Motel is still open. I believe it's more of an apartment-type motel now. It's one of a string of old hotels tucked back along Fairview Avenue. Fairview used to be the "main drag" into town, but with growth and road revisions, the stretch close to town is looking a bit abandoned.


  1. I like these old signs. I like to wonder what it was like traveling back in the 50s, with no interstates and motels on the side of the road.

  2. There's another one nearby that I want to get a picture of. I have friends who say when they made the big trip to Boise from the small town we grew up in, it was the one for families. Pre-Holiday Inn times.


Thanks for stopping by!
