Hotel under construction in north Bibb

Masonry workers do the stone work on the exterior of a new hotel being built off Bowman Road in north Bibb County.

Construction of the 30,000-square-foot, three-story Microtel Inn & Suites at 2020 Bowman Park is expected to be completed in July, said Angie Patel with D&G Developers LLC, a hotel builder and developer. It is expected to employ about 12 people, she said.

The hotel will have 63 rooms and it will have a business center, fitness room and will offer free wireless Internet throughout the property, Patel said.

Each room will have a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker, she said.

The hotel is adjacent to a Value Place hotel, which opened recently.
