Property Information


This motel is located on one of two major highways running north and south basically through the entire state of Missouri. On four lane highway, super visibility from both directions. This motel is actually the only motel directly on the highway between Sedalia and Buffalo, Missouri. Only minutes away from two of Missouri’s major lakes-Truman and Lake of the Ozarks. Close enough to the lake but away from the noise and crowd when you want to be.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

A new owner has several options for increasing revenues and profits. They should investigate joining a national reservation system, perhaps affiliating with a national chain that directs clients to the motel. They could also build 6-10 additional units toward the back of the property as either joined units or individual cabins. That area is already plumbed and electricity is there as well. There is a 2,500 square foot separate building that could be rented out to area residents for meetings and functions. The spacious lobby area, an additional 2,600 square feet features a 21 foot-high stone fireplace. That area could be converted to a bar or restaurant to attract additional customers and create revenue opportunities. Currently it serves as reception for the motel, but other revenue generators would be easy to add. The property mainly needs new energetic owners who have fresh ideas and can take advantage of social media.


Due to the nature of the area and nearby major lakes there are other hotels and motels; however, this property has a pool, laundry facilities and spacious guest rooms at very affordable nightly and weekly rates. Lots of return guests who appreciate the cleanliness and consistency of the rooms.
