The Eagle Ford Shale oil and gas development is a powerful magnet for different kinds of businesses. Hospitality Management Corp. (HMC) recently announced the opening of a newly built Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham in Kenedy, Texas, just one hour south of San Antonio.
It marks the 16th hotel the company has acquired and managed in Texas. “We are excited to expand our Texas presence with another hotel in the Eagle Ford Oil & Gas shale play area,” said Gerald Morris, vice president of operations for HMC, in a news release. “HMC is keenly focused on growth in both the Eagle Ford and Cline Texas Oil and Gas shale areas, inclusive of new hotel development. In the past several months, we have added nine hotels located in these dynamic markets to HMC’s growing portfolio, with several more in the pipeline.”
The new development is a 100 percent non-smoking facility, and offers 83 guest rooms and pet-friendly benefits, plus large-vehicle parking. The price of a room includes continental breakfast, and other amenities include free Wi-Fi in the rooms and throughout the hotel, laundry facilities, flat-screen televisions, refrigerators and microwaves. Local calls are also free, while fax, copy and mail service are available at the front desk.
The location caters to business travelers, with local attractions to unwind like Karnes County Club Golf Course and Joe Gulley Park. The hotel is located at 333 N. Sunset Strip Drive, accessible from TX-181.
