New motel planned for State St.

A new motel is planned for an empty lot on State St. near Willow Lan. Jaman Patel applied with the City of Boise for a permit to build the 23-room motel on a .6 acre site on of Alamosa St. at State – across the street from the 44 Club.

The two-story building would feature rooms on two stories – with doors to the rooms facing a parking lot. The site plan shows parking for 26 cars – slightly more than one per room.

“This proposed motel will be a known brand name, though that is not known yet, so it will be a wonderful option to visitors who do not want the exorbitant amount that the higher up brands charge,” the applicant wrote in a letter filed with the city.

The proposed motel is bordered by a mobile home court and the Farmers Union Canal.
