According to public records, Cactus Hospitality bought the 145-room at the end of November of this year. Sale price? $3.72 million. That's a lot less than its 2019 selling price of $4.6 million, which was a big drop from its 2018 sales price of $5.75 million.

The hotel is in the process of changing over to the Choice brand, which runs the gamut from Roadway Inn and Econo-Lodge to Quality Inn and Cambria. According to the filing, Cactus Hospitality's mailing address is in Fargo, ND, but they're based in Jefferson, Wisconsin.
