Steele Planning New Hotel, Coffee Cup Expands


A little more than a year after the Lone Steer Motel burns to the ground, investors release plans of building a new hotel in Steele.

Terry Strand is one of the roughly 20 local investors wanting to build a new hotel in Steele.

Strand says the group wants to go with a trade name.

After touring some other hotels in small towns, they are looking at building a Cobblestone Hotel.

The 2 story, 31 room hotel will be here, in the old Ampride location, right off I-94.

Strand says a hotel is needed in the area, because currently the town can't offer accommodations.

 (Terry Strand / Investor) "Whether it's sales people, even bank examiners that come into our shop. If they are here for a number of days, they either drive to Bismarck or Jamestown for accommodations cause we don't have anything in town. If we have relatives visiting where are they going to stay? There is no place in town."


Strand says construction is planned to start in March or April of 2014.

He says construction should take about 6 months and hopes to have the Hotel open by September.

A major coffee chain is coming to ...... Steele.

The Coffee Cup in Steele is adding a Caribou Coffee, Pizza Hut Express and a Subway.
It's all part of a major expansion--that nearly doubles the size of the current location.
Manager Troy Winger says depending on the time of the year, the store serves between 1000 and 2500 customers a day.

(Troy Winger / Manager of Steele Coffee Cup) "Making room for new diesel islands with 50% more lanes. We will have diesel exhaust fluid dispensed at those islands. And we are adding onto the building additionally almost doubling the size of the square footage of the building to make room for Subway, Caribou Coffee and Pizza Hut Express."

Winger says they hope to have construction completed by summer.
