Condemned Spartanburg Co. Motel Might Reopen In June

Posted: Updated:
SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. - A motel that was shut down after inspectors found widespread mold and cockroaches might reopen this summer.

The Spartanburg County Building Codes Department condemned the Brookwood Inn in March after it found a string of violations, including non-working smoke detectors and no gas.

At a foreclosure hearing Thursday morning, a judge scheduled a public auction for June 2. If there are no bidders, the mortgage lender, Khanna Group of Hotels, would retain the property.

"Any hotel manager which is trying to build a business and work with the community would have attended those issues," said Bhushan Khanna of Khanna Group of Hotels. "When we sell the property we are going to do right for the community."

Khanna said crews are renovating all 107 rooms, which includes "breathable," texture paint to prevent mold, a new ventilation system for improved air quality and hardwood floors.

Whether the mortgage lender keeps the property or not, former tenant will receive a week's free rent for the inconvenience.
