Developers start on hotel projects in Burley

By  | 

BURLEY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Burley is just a little ways away from having not just one or two, but three new hotels.

City officials are excited about the projects so far.

Only one of the three appears to have broken ground.

Right now they are just clearing the way, and they'll start building in a few months.

The chamber of commerce says they hope these developments coming all at once is tell of what's to come.

"I think it's just exciting to see that three major hotel chains have chosen to come here to the Minicassia area,” president and CEO Kyla Sawyer said. “We hope it's a sign of growth to come and we're very optimistic that it is."

Not everyone is excited about the new hotels, however.

Some developers chose land very close to other hotels, which could take business away.

We reached out to some of those hotels that could be affected, but they did not return our request for comment.
