A longtime dilapidated motel in Lancaster that was sold at auction is now poised to give way to a brand-new Candlewood Suites extended-stay hotel.

The planned new hotel, which will be developed and owned by Paul Bliss, will be located at 50 Freeman Road, on the site of the former Buffalo Airport Inn. The Clarence construction contractor and developer purchased the 88-room motel in March for $1.35 million, and now plans to demolish the aging two-story structure.

Aside from the standard design supplied by the hotel chain, the specific details of the new building are still in flux. But Bliss said it will feature about 100 rooms – all suites – in a building that is tentatively expected to be four stories in height and about 50,000 square feet in all.

The hotel will be managed by Phil Gaulin’s Brookwood Hospitality, which already manages Uniland Development Co.’s Embassy Suites in downtown Buffalo. Brookwood is also working with Uniland on the developer’s planned hotel at the Northtown Center in Amherst.
