The Comfort Inn and Suites at 17 Old Gick Road, near Norway Exit 15 in Wilton, has new owners and is undergoing a major facelift.
Brothers Ravi and Subhash Modasra, third generation motel operators, bought the property in late October for $5.32 million. They expect to invest another $2 million in upgrading the property.
The property will remain in operation as the renovation goes forward in stages.
The current design, called “rise and shine,” will require new finishes, flooring, wall coverings, and furniture. Ravi Modasra expects work to begin in the next few weeks and be completed by June 1. In any case, “we will do our best to be ready for track season.”
The Modasra brothers already operate a Comfort Inn and Suites property in Scotia and have other real estate holdings. They built the Scotia motel in 2018 and will continue to operate it. Ravi described his and his brother’s businesses, the Mohawk Companies and Bluebird Commercial Real Estate, as being “in an acquisition and growth mode.”
