    SALEM — The City of Salem has announced a new multimillionholiday inn dollar hotel will be built in the city along Kinney Boulevard, and will hopefully open the area to additional development.

    The Holiday Inn Express and Suites project, with MPH Hotels of St. Petersburg, Florida, will hopefully break ground by December, and when completed 10-12 months later, the four-story structure will hold 86 rooms – 15 to 18 of which will be suites — a 24-hour health club, and will create 25-30 jobs.

    The project is expected to cost between $7 and $8 million when completed, with $250,000 going to the City for the purchase of the 2 ½ acres of property on Kinney Boulevard.

    It’s anticipated the new development will attract additional economic growth, bringing in restaurants and other business drawn to the interstate and the hotel business.
