Look out worst hotel everBest Western to open in a few weeks” which can only be bad news for that shithole. This new hotel will have 67 rooms and one meeting room. The Daily News article says the amenities will be:

…an indoor swimming pool and a whirlpool, a fitness center, free breakfast daily, six whirlpool suites, wired and wireless Internet, a guest laundry facility, iron and ironing boards, hair dryers, coffee makers, in-room guest safes and more.

The article also mentions that the place is hiring:

The hotel will hire 20 full- and part-time employees. Those interested in a job at Best Western can apply at the site of the hotel in the front vestibule. On average, the wages will be $7 to $9 an hour

I’ll throw my resume in there just for shits and giggles. It would be great to be able to only drive five minutes to work.

I like the mayors comments:

“We welcome them with open arms,” Mayor Randy Kirichkow said. “We’re looking forward to having their name near the interstate.”

It’s like the city mayor acknowledges they only have bad hotels in the city. The city certainly went out of the way to get the Best Western here:

The City of South Beloit offered Best Western a property tax abatement that will last two to three years, depending on the assessed value of the property. The hotel was also constructed in South Beloit’s Enterprise Zone, which means that there was no sales tax on the building materials for the new structure. The city also reduced the sewer connection fee from $85,000 to $20,000 for Best Western and allowed for a variance in the height of the hotel and its sign.

It shouldn’t be no surprise why the city went out of it’s way to attract this new hotel:

South Beloit has a 4 percent hotel room tax, which means Best Western will bring in about $50,000 to $60,000 each year for the city, Kirichkow said. The 1 cent sales tax will generate an estimated $10,000 to $20,000 a year from the hotel, Kirichkow said.

I’m sure the city will profit more off of this brand new hotel than the dying worst hotel ever. With any luck this will be the last nail in the coffin for the worst hotel ever.
