Yuma Cabana Motel
Yuma, AZ

 

Yuma, Arizona - The Yuma Cabana Motel is a very well known location in Yuma due to the huge sign out front. The neon lettering and flashing lights are a can't miss destination for travelers to Yuma.

The motel first opened its doors back in 1965 and is located at 2151 S. 4th Avenue.

I remember being contacted by the owner of the Yuma Cabana back when the web was somewhat newer and corresponding about his business. In corresponding with Casey Crawford, it was evident that this family run business took great pride at providing a nice accommodation in Yuma and a nice alternative to the chain motels.

Seeing the sign back in 1998 was amazing and an inspiration for taking over a million photos of the roadside across the country later.

Today the Yuma Motel is gone. Well the motel is still there and a version of the large sign still stands. However the location is now home to an Econo Lodge Inn & Suites. So while I have nothing against Econo Lodge motels, yet another remnant of roadside americana has now left the roadside. 11-20
