The Pines Country Inn Motel, 1730 E. Main St. (M-21), Owosso has a projected open date of April 1.

The newly refurbished 30-unit complex will soon be ready for occupancy and will be offering the finest rooms, amenities, and accommodations in the area. Considerable attention has been added to the comfort and convenience of the (new) Pines Country Inn. Some of the in-room amenities include: Select Mattresses with pillow top memory foam for sleeping pleasure, a wall mounted 40 inch high definition LCD TV, convenient desk/work station receptacles with USB charging ports, free super-fast broadband WIFI and much more. Rooms will also feature nicely appointed bathrooms with dual mirrors, wall mounted hairdryers, lighted nonskid acrylic tub/shower combinations as well as appointed granite counter tops with under-mount porcelain sinks.

Tony Nash, owner of Azee Business Solutions, was hired in December and works with several different hotels all over the country. Nash said, “I’m really excited. This is great for the community. The developers really did a great job. No details were missed on the rooms and it’s a project that I’m proud to be a part of.”

Future site plans include redevelopment and expansion of the former SUNOCO gas station, procurement of a franchise restaurant (which is already zoned and has a liquor license) and possible development of an air industrial park on the southern portion of the property adjacent to the airport.

“It is a beautiful and affordable property. The focus for the property is cleanliness, service, hospitality, and affordability. This is what we will ensure the Pines Country Inn Motel will be known for,” said Nash.
