Will Milton check in to hotel?
MILTON--The city of Milton could be moving forward with efforts to bring a new hotel to the area.
In a presentation Tuesday, Madison hotel developer Inn Development and Management Group told the city council that a feasibility study shows the city could likely support an 80-room hotel along the future Highway 26 bypass.
Based on occupancy levels and the age and condition of a sampling of other area hotels, there is demand for another midsize hotel in Rock County, group Vice President Sean Skellie said.
The city in June paid $12,500 and the Milton Area Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Tourism paid $2,500 to have the group do a feasibility study on a potential hotel in the business park at the interchange of Highway 59 and the future Highway 26 bypass on Milton’s east side.
