Motel To Be Demolished

Posted: Updated:

Decatur – An eyesore will soon be removed from the Decatur landscape.

Demolition of an old motel is underway at 450 E. Pershing Road.  The business has been closed for several years.

Most recently it operated under the name Best Value Inn & Suites.  Years ago it was a Best Western.

The property is considered to be a prime location for future development.  It is located near the intersection of Pershing and Martin Luther King, Junior Drive.

A temporary fence has been erected around the property.  Rooms have been gutted and construction equipment is ready to knock down the several buildings making up the motel complex.
