Land transaction for Fairfield Inn now complete

Friday, October 21, 2016
The land transaction for the development of Dyersburg's newest lodging accommodation, Fairfield Inn & Suites, has recently been completed. The hotel, which will feature 75 rooms with 87 parking spaces, will be constructed on Radio Road across from Love's Travel Stop. 'We are pleased to announce today that the land transaction for the new Fairfield Inn & Suites is now complete,' announced Bob Carpenter of Carpenter Real Estate Company Inc. of Union City. 'The 75-room hotel will be located on a four-acre site, west of Cracker Barrel, on Radio Road. Construction for the $8 million-plus project will begin shortly. We would like to thank Mayor John Holden and his planning staff, including Thomas Mullins, for their kindness and professionalism during the planning process. The city of Dyersburg has a pro-business culture that obviously begins with Mayor Holden.' According to Carpenter, ground breaking on the project should commence within the next 60 days. The Fairfield Inn & Suites establishment is expected to be open for business in late 2017.

  • Because this is exactly what Dyersburg needs, another hotel at 1/8th capacity

  • Apparently evolve, you don't realize the demand for rooms in Dyersburg. You think a major chain is going to spend 8 million dollars without knowing what the market demand is. The Holiday Inn is completing an addition onto their hotel to create more rooms as well. Geez, some people are never happy with progress of any kind.
