WICHITA — Hotelier Naina Patel has purchased the AmericInn at 4848 S. Laura and is rebranding it.

"We are going to convert it to a Super 8," says Patel, who owns the Days Inn & Suites across the street.

"It's close by, it's ... easy for us to manage," she says of the new hotel.

The Days Inn has 43 rooms. The AmericInn had 52 rooms but will drop to 50 as a Super 8. Patel plans to convert one room into storage and the other into either an expanded breakfast space or an exercise room.

She plans to start remodeling in a month or so.

"Obviously, it needs a little bit of TLC, so we're going to redo the whole thing."
