Investment Overview:

The property is a 96-room, exterior corridor, two-story hotel located in Russellville, Arkansas, directly off of Arkansas Avenue near the intersection of Interstate 40.

The Best Western Inn Russellville is being offered at 8.16 percent cap rate based off the Year-end 2017 financials. Numerous university activities draw guests to the hotel and increase demand for lodging.
