JANESVILLE

The northeast-side hotel Ramada Janesville plans to rebrand itself as an AmericInn, according to the Ramada’s management.

Ramada Janesville General Manager Karl Anderson said the hotel at 3900 Milton Ave. will transition into an AmericInn this spring.

Wyndham Hotel Group, which owns Ramada and about 20 different hotel brands, including La Quinta, Super 8, Microtel and Travelodge, acquired AmericInn late last year, Wyndham said in an earlier news release.

AmericInn is a “mid-scale” hotel chain with about 200 locations in the Midwest, Wyndham said. Anderson said Ramada Janesville’s owners had been shopping for a new brand since 2016, when the hotel underwent $2 million in room and infrastructure upgrades.

Prior to being a Ramada, the hotel had operated as an America Best Value Inn and a Best Western.

Anderson said the hotel is transitioning away from Ramada because, unlike most Ramada hotels, it no longer has a built-in restaurant. Along with a sign change, the carpeting color and décor will change to reflect the new brand.

Anderson said the hotel’s bar, Fuzzy’s Lounge, will remain open, and the hotel will continue offering a breakfast bar.

All management and staff will stay in place, he said, and guests now booking stays under Ramada will have their reservations carry over to AmericInn.
