New 88-room hotel coming to I-85 site / June 06, 2018
South Hill will gain another 88 hotel rooms with the addition of a Microtel lodge, announced Tuesday by The Dominion Hospitality Group, a Richmond-based developer.

The four-story, 88-room Microtel will be built at the intersection of Arnold Drive and Cycle Lane near the I-85 interchange. The Microtel franchise is part of the Wyndham Hotel Group.

Spillman Short, founder and managing partner of Dominion Hospitality Group, spoke about the project at the Tuesday lunch meeting of the South Hill Chamber of Commerce.

It is still in the conceptual phase, but Short expects construction of the Microtel to begin in August, though the official groundbreaking will take place June 19.

Opening date is expected in the spring.

Spillman said the property encompasses about two acres, but not all of it will be used for the hotel and parking. A lot that fronts Arnold St. could be the future site of a Waffle House or similar restaurant.

South Hill Town Manager Kim Callis expressed excitement that Dominion has chosen the town for its new project. With the addition of the Microtel, South Hill will have around 600 hotel rooms available for the public, Callis said.
