May 18, 2017 – The Ehmer Group, a San Francisco-based member of Hotel Brokers International, announces the successful marketing and sale of the 93-room Quality Inn located at 317 N. G Street in Madera, California. The selling price was $3,050,000. Richard Ehmer, President of The Ehmer Group, negotiated the sale.
The five-story, interior corridor, full service Hotel sits on half a city block with 56,075 square feet of usable building space and visibility from Highway 99. There is a large front desk and lobby area, dining area, full bar, exercise room, business center, and swimming pool all located on the hotel grounds. The Hotel, at time of sale a member of Choice Hotels and Resorts, will undergo significant remodel with updates to comply with the new Del Sol brand at La Quinta Inns & Suites. The city of Madera is situated in the central valley of California at the entrance to the Sierra Mountain Range. The city’s population has nearly doubled in size over the past 10 years and is now just over 60,000 residents. The area is experiencing growth, as well as a strong lodging market. All key performance indicators, including occupancy, ADR and RevPAR, are up over 2016 numbers and trending positive in all expert forecasts.
“The sale of the Quality Inn Madera presents an incredible opportunity for the Buyer to rebrand and operate a newly flagged hotel in a burgeoning California market. After completion of the renovation, the hotel should see a major uptick in both ADR and Occupancy. The Ehmer Group was proud to represent our clients in this transaction,” said Mr. Ehmer.
