Old Quality Inn up for auction

oldqualityinnThe former Quality Inn at the North Gloster Street and McCullough Boulevard interchange is up for auction by CBRE Realty Services. CBRE is conducting an online auction from 1 to 3 p.m. today, with a minimum bid of $350,000. The 113-room, five-story hotel closed in May 2010. It sits on four acres and is zoned general commercial.

Former owner David Graham and his Graham Organization of South Dakota at the time the hotel closed owed more than $90,000 in delinquent taxes. The property also has major mold problems, city officials have said.

Bidders will have to consider demolition costs in addition to the back taxes owed on the property.

    Once the best hotel in town. Formerly the HILTON HOTEL. It was wonderful. One of the first hotels (of the modern era) that had inside hallways instead of outside walkways. It was a lot safer (at the time) than other motels or so-called hotels that were really motels.

    And MDOT really needs to build an interchange at U.S. 145 onto U.S. 78/I-22. They should have built it in the first place. Alternatively some access roads from the U.S.78/45 interchange back to I45 would help. Visitors have a hard time finding “hotel row”.

    Now they need to do something with the old Ramada Inn – talk about a big eyesore.
