Good News in Warm Springs GA.

Posted by Lisa Thompson City Clerk on July 25, 2016 at 9:15 AM

Renovations have begun at the Best Western White House Inn on the crest of the mountain in Warm Springs. The sign in front of the hotel and the roof of the portico have been removed as well as other parts of the building.


The hotel was destroyed by a tornado in 2011 and has set deserted and deteriorating ever since. It was recently purchased by Presidential Properties who lost no time in beginning renovations. Mr. Neal Patel, a principal of Presidential Properties, says they would like to reopen the hotel under the Best Western flag by May of 2017. Mr. Patel's brother and wife will be the resident managers.


Mr. Patel and his wife, Kathy, own the Best Western Hotel of Braselton, Georgia. They have been in the hotel business for more than 14 years. The Braselton property is an older hotel with doors opening to the parking lot where the property in Warm Springs will have rootms opening to enclosed corridors, as did the original. The Patels say the room configuration will be very much like the White House Inn.


Structural engineers have said that the foundation, outer walls and floors are safe. The roof and interior walls, ceilings, carpet, etc., will have to be replaced.


Mayor Bob Prater said, "We are very excited to have Presidential Properties and the Best Western in our community. The area has suffered greatly since the 2011 tornado and this is one more step forward. This endeavor fits into the tourism plan written by the visiting team several years ago. This will benefit our whole area, not just the city of Warm Springs."


Mayor Prater continued by saying, "It was my pleasure to spend a night in the Patel's property in Brazelton and I was greatly impressed with the operation there and feel the Patel's will give us the same quality, here."


The Patel's have some far reaching goals for the property on top of the mountain which they will be sharing with the community in the future.
