"It gives us great pleasure to be able to bring quality and affordable award winning lodging accommodations to the Shelbyville community and we look forward to welcoming travelers to the area's newest hotel," said hotel owners Dennis Young Sr. and Aubrey Cawthon.
They said the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham is an excellent fit for Shelbyville and the growing demand of business and leisure travelers visiting attractions such as The Celebration and the Calsonic Arena, located a mile from the facility.
The Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham will support the more than 37 Calsonic events presently and will help bring more tourists to the Shelbyville area, the owners said. Some events held at Calsonic, typically known as an equestrian facility, include the Ringling Brothers Circus, rodeos, Motocross, dog shows, 4-H shows and car shows.
Additionally, Shelbyville and Bedford County are home to a variety of craft fairs, festivals and offers popular shopping and dining.
