Holloway currently intends to close the property following the summer travel season and renovate and rebrand the property during the winter off-season. Holloway expects the renovation and rebranding to cost approximately $1.25 million and for the hotel to reopen in March or April of 2016. Holloway expects the total acquisition and renovation cost to represent a cap rate of 15-20% once the property ramps up.
