I love all the old vintage motels I see around Utah, along with their cool vintage signs. In the 50’s and 60’s the idea of going on a road trip really took off and these classic roadside motels were popping up everywhere, they went through stages of auto courts (motel rooms often with a garage for the car), motels, motor lodges and more.

I decided to start keeping a list of them and that is what this page will be for.
