The Capitol Motel at 1749 State St in Salt Lake City, Utah.

They used to have a really cool vintage sign before it was blown down and replaced but a cool, but not as cool sign.

It was built in 1931 by brothers in law Marinus J. Gerrltse and Frank DeNigtre who had immigrated from the Netherlands. Prior to that they ran the Wasatch Service Station south south of here.

In June of 2020 the motel was demolished, along with the buildings at 120 Wilson Ave (behind this lot) and 1767 S State.
