Brown Deer-based Trunk Bay Investments plans to develop a three-story, 59-room Microtel Inn and Suites hotel on a vacant two-acre site at 9611 S. 13th St. The property is just south of Ryan Road and just east of Interstate 94 and is between a Wendy’s restaurant and a Colder’s furniture store. The hotel project includes a second phase, which would be built at a later date and would add another 24 rooms, for a total of 83.
Microtel Inn and Suites is a chain of budget hotels and is a brand of Atlanta-based U.S. Franchise Systems Inc., which is an affiliate of Chicago-based Global Hyatt Corp. There are more than 290 Microtel Inn and Suites in the world, but the only location in southeast Wisconsin is in Racine at 5419 Durand Ave. The hotel chain has eight other locations in the state, including Appleton, Fond du Lac, Green Bay, Janesville, Madison, Onalaska, Rice Lake and Tomah.
