WHO Radio’s Van and Bonnie invited listeners to tour the Renovo early Tuesday morning.
“We’ve gone from Brooks and Dunn, to Taylor Swift,” said General Manager Jason Nash. “We’ve built a 21st century farmhouse.”
The 102 Room motel is designed with a minimalist style, including some loft rooms and suites.
“We’ve created different areas where you could just relax,” said Nash. “We have outdoor space for social events.”
Renovo also has a restaurant. The facility was expanded from the old one, the only part that looks familiar is the indoor pool.
The Urbandale Chamber will hold a ribbon cutting on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 4 pm.
