Along with the hotel, the 2.3-acre site will have two outparcels that could house 4,000 square feet of quick-service restaurant space and about 6,000 square feet for a full-service restaurant. The N.C. Department of Transportation has already approved plans to install a free-range dog park directly across from the hotel.
“Benson has added some really great options for tourists lately, so the timing and location of this new Hampton Inn couldn’t be better,” said Brenda Daniels, ElectriCities economic development manager. “It’s near shopping and several restaurants and less than five miles from GALOT Motorsports Park and Broadslab Distillery.”
The new hotel will also be less than 20 minutes from Campbell University, 45 minutes from Raleigh-Durham International Airport and 25 minutes from Johnston Regional Airport.
The hotel’s builder is Leath Co. LLC, a commercial developer based in Emporia, Virginia, that focuses on hotel and motel development.
