But it must be getting near, since the sign in front of the Holiday Inn Express in Andrews that read "coming in Spring 2008" is gone, and the building looks to now be nearing completion. It looks from the outside to be a nicer hotel, especially considering the choices here in Andrews. All the other hotels seem to be so old or are in the transition of being rehabbed even. I have not been inside most of them in years, so I can only hope the rooms are improved, but to have a new hotel in Andrews, and one that is part of a national chain, will be a nice change for Andrews. I only hope that will the economy slowing the way it is, that the investor for this little desert gem doesn't end up on the losing side. \r
What we need now are more visionaries to look around and see the actual needs of Andrews, and invest in their home town.
