The Loyalty Inn will be converted into 160 "mini" apartment units according to an article from the Tri-City Herald. The Loyalty Inn is located on Lewis Street and has been in a dilapidated state for many years and has been rated as a 2-star motel with scathing reviews.

Fortify Holdings of the Mid-Columbia is spending some $30 million on renovating rundown motels in the area. If you see fencing and construction going on at old motels in the Tri-Cities, odds are they'll soon be owned by Fortify Holdings.

The one motel they haven't bought was the Economy Inn in Richland, another holding company has purchased that property.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time.

The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
