PRICE REDUCTION!!  I-80 location less than 30 minutes east of Des Moines and close to many attractions.  Original owner/developer that is absentee.  2007 build with elevator and priced to sell at  $28,205/key.  Underperforming and a great fit for an on-site owner.

Executive Summary

This 2007 build Microtel Inn & Suites is located on heavily traveled I-80, less than 30 minutes from the state capital of Des Moines, IA.  With excellent interstate visibility, it captures I-80 traffic as well as those travelers coming to the area to visit Adventureland Resort, Living History Farms (a 500-acre interactive outdoor history museum), Prairie Meadows Casino & Racetrack and the Outlets of Des Moines.  Events that bring in significant traffic to area include the following:

  • Iowa State Fair
  • Iowa Speedway (Indy race care track) – Newton, IA
  • Knoxville Raceway (Sprint car race track) – Knoxville, IA
  • World Pork Expo
  • Tulip Festival – Pella, IA
  • Iowa State Wrestling Championships

Being 39 units, it is ideal for an onsite owner, or for placing an onsite partner.  The original developer/owner is absentee and the operations are in need of onsite management.  High employee turnover and a lack of marketing and revenue management provides a buyer with a solid opportunity to increase revenue.

If you are looking for an owner/operator hotel with upside – and close to a metropolitan area – then this listing deserves your attention!
