Hagerstown developer Stephen B. Sagi wants to build a 98-room Sleep Inn motel and a combination fast-food/convenience store on Sharpsburg Pike just south of Wendy's, according to a rezoning application.
If the three-story motel is built, it would continue a growth trend on Md. 65 and in hotel rooms. There are nearly 2,000 hotel rooms in the county, with two new motels being added in the past two years.
Last year, the 118-room Hampton Inn opened on Dual Highway, and this year, a 75-room Comfort Suites motel is expected to open on Dual Highway, with another 70-room addition planned for two years from now.
