HREC arranges sale of Oregon Best Western

Best Western Agate Beach Resort

HREC Investment Advisors arranged the sale of the 148-room Best Western Agate Beach Resort located on the Pacific Ocean in Newport, Ore. The buyer is an affiliate of Vesta Hospitality, an owner and operator of resorts and hotels across the United States.

Mike Armstrong, principal in HREC Investment Advisors’ San Diego office, and Mike Cahill, CEO and founder of HREC, exclusively represented the private seller on the transaction.

“The Best Western received significant investor interest due to the irreplaceable oceanfront location, strong performance, and the quality of the physical facility,” Armstrong said. “After Vesta Hospitality completes a multimillion-dollar value-enhancement project, the hotel will be well-positioned to drive occupancy and ADR and increase cash flow.”
