Downtown Eyesore sells to Suburban Studios, Extensive Renovations Expected


The Columbus Inn & Suites, located at 506 HWY 45 (next to the old Magnolia Bowl), has just sold to Choice Hotels. Signage on-site indicates that the dilapidated property will be remodeled and rebranded under the “Suburban Suites” banner, offering extended stay rooms. The timing couldn’t be better for Columbus, as news of the $2,000,000,0000 Aluminum Dynamics factory coming to the prairie and a possible development deal for a Columbus Redevelopment project at Burns Bottom both broke recently. Here’s a brief description about the hotel brand:

“Suburban Studios, a next generation extended stay product from Choice Hotels, offers developers access to the extended stay category through flexible conversion options. Suburban’s “Longer Stays Made Easy” philosophy provides value-conscious, long staying guests with friendly service and clean, spacious guestrooms equipped with in-room kitchens. Guests have access to free high-speed internet, 24/7 laundry facilities and bi-weekly housekeeping. There are more than 70 Suburban Extended Stay Hotels open, with 27 Suburban Studios in the pipeline.”
