Competition:This general area has competitors; however, we are not aware of any hotels that are reportedly in the planning stages. Nonetheless, appraiser has considered the risk of a potential supply increase in our selection of capitalization and discount rates, as well as our stabilized occupancy projection. Sellers has agreed to supply an appropriate non-compete agreement to the new operator. The subject hotel competes in the following segment areas, Economy Chain, Middle Atlantic Region, and Interstate Location. In terms of occupancy, the subject’s competitive segments all showed growth, in line with national trends, subject’s competitive segments all experienced growth in ADR as well.
Growth Potential:With an ongoing and more aggressive marketing plan, improved web site, the business can be further improved. Between 2012 and 2015, the subject averaged above 95% occupancy penetration, or earned over 95% of its fair share of the room nights sold, although it has been decreasing recently. Note that ownership invested over $200,000 in 2015 to replace bedding and change all televisions to flat screens. This should enhance its performance going forward and appraiser’s projection of 93% is in line with historic operations. The United States hotel market experienced a modest recovery in 2010 through 2015, following precipitous drops in all key hotel performance metrics during 2009. In 2010, business travelers returned to the roads and skies to fuel an increase in overall occupancy rates, which drove a rise in revenue per available room. Nationwide occupancy rebounded from an 8.8% decline in 2009 to a 5.4% increase in 2010, followed by increases of 4.3%, 2.5%, 1.5%, 3.6% and 1.9% respectively in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
