Given the current condition of the Hotel, any required PIP is expected to be very reasonable. The Property was lasted PIP'ed in 2016 and additional improvements were made as recently as 2019 meaning that the Hotel has been well maintained including its systems and structural components. However, the successful purchaser will need to coordinate with the franchisor regarding any current PIP requirements and timing for completion.
