Project Description

The longstanding Rainbow Motel has undergone a massive renovation and reopened Wednesday, July 11, 2018, as RSVP Motel, a new boutique motel that will contribute to the ongoing revitalization of North Seventh Avenue in the Midtown section of Bozeman.

The 1950s-era Rainbow Motel, previously operated as a budget motel, was sold to the Folkvords in 2016. The renovation has transformed the property and an adjacent building into an independently operated boutique motel with 37 rooms and suites, an onsite café named The Farmer’s Daughters, and an outdoor pool. The most recent addition to the plans for the property is a collaboration with Missoula entrepreneur Nick Checota for a 1,500-seat concert venue. The concert venue opened in 2019.
