A new hotel has opened its doors in Boardman.

The Sleep Inn, which opened on Monday, Nov. 9, is located at 125 S.E. Front St. in Boardman, just off of Interstate 84 next to Subway.

Bob Dayal, a managing partner for the three-story hotel, said it has 64 rooms, a gym, a swimming pool and other amenities. It is part of the Choice Hotels brand family.

Dayal said the hotel received funding assistance from the Port of Morrow and Morrow County Economic Development, and incentives from the city of Boardman. The hotel is receiving a three-year property tax break through the city's enterprise zone, but Dayal said they will still pay other taxes, such as the transient room tax, from the beginning.

He said the city also helped provide information for a feasibility study before the project began. The study indicated a need for more hotel accommodations in the Boardman area. Dayal said people working in Boardman often end up staying in Hermiston or the Tri-Cities instead.

"This is a good opportunity for them to capture some revenue for the city," he said.
