Hall’s Guesthouse to close permanently
Don Hall’s Guesthouse was shown in the ad, released earlier this month. A picture of the hotel’s front signboard displays the message “STAY STRONG STAY SAFE” in the ad.
Guesthouse closed in March, at the beginning of the pandemic. At the time, owner Tim Hall told WANE 15 that the “current state of affairs” severely impacted Guesthouse.
The Hall family acquired the old “Imperial House Hotel” in 1981 and turned it into Guesthouse.
