KJ Properties sold five Candlewood Suites hotels in Texas and Oklahoma for $36.2 million. Alan Miller, SVP, investments in Marcus & Millichap’s Austin, Texas, office, and Chris Gomes, senior managing director, investments in the firm’s Dallas office, represented the seller and procured the buyer, a Texas-based real estate and investment firm.

“The purchase highlights the buyer’s extended-stay hotel acquisition strategy and places new ownership in position to capitalize on future demand for this type of asset in these markets,” Miller said in a statement.

The 517-room portfolio consisted of three 113-room hotels in San Antonio; Midland, Texas; and Lawton, Okla.; and two 89-room properties in McAlester, Okla., and Bartlesville, Okla.
