Almost two years after breaking ground and some five years after originally getting approval, a new extended stay hotel just off Routes 1/9 is expected to open in the next several weeks.
Home2 Suites by Hilton is an extended stay brand of Hilton and the corporate website indicates a Nov. 15 availability.
The 4.4-acre property has changed hands over the years and the application has come before the Planning Board a number of times for amendments and such.
Plans were approved for a Sleep Inn but the property then changed hands in June 2008 and a plan came about to bring in Candlewood Suites.
In December 2009, the Planning Board approved an amendment to a previous plan, at which time members were informed that the hotel would be a Homes2 Suites and not a Candlewood Suites.
Meanwhile, the Kings Inn motel has been undergoing extensive renovations and could be forthcoming as well.
