GEORGE - A 65 room, three-story hotel by Wyndam is under construction in George.
Built by Moses Lake-based Medved Northwest and operated Black Fly of Moses Lake, crews broke ground on the interstate-side building in October and plan to finish it by June 1, 2020. The hotel will also feature a full restaurant and bar. It will also be Wyndam’s first Microtel Moda hotel to open in the U.S.
iFIBER ONE News asked the hotel’s owner, who wanted to remain anonymous, why they decided to build near the George/I-90 exit.
“This was a long time coming,” he said. “26,000 vehicles take this exit every day.” He went on to say that the hotel will be a ‘stop gap’ between Ellensburg, Quincy, Wenatchee and Moses Lake.
In addition to the hotel, the developer is choosing to build either a Fatburger or Five Guys Burgers & Fries on the same 3+-acre lot.
The new Wyndam Hotel is several hundred yards west of Shree’s fuel station.
