True to form for Johnny Morris’ projects, crews were working until the last minute before opening the new Angler’s Inn near Bass Pro Shops’ flagship store.
A Facebook message sent to the new hotel was answered with the affirmative, “Yes it is open!” Bass Pro spokesman Jack Wlezien could not be reached for comment by deadline.
Officials posted March 7 on Facebook that the finishing touches were being performed for a grand opening on March 8. City building permit records as recent as March 7 indicate project general contractor Nabholz Corp. continued to work on landscaping and parking, including on the lot of the recently demolished Seeburg Service Center.
At 621 W. Sunshine St., Angler’s Inn takes the place of a former Days Inn, which Bass Pro purchased from former operator Walker Hospitality Group LLC, according to Springfield Business Journal reporting.
It’s located across Sunshine Street from Wonders of Wildlife Museum & Aquarium, where Nabholz Corp. employees were among those who worked right up to the morning of the ribbon-cutting gala held Sept. 20, 2017, according to SBJ reporting.
At the Angler’s Inn property, crews added wood logs to the exterior of the property, as well as signage on the southern and eastern sides of the property. Bass Pro Shops’ logo is present on the signage.
The hotel’s website advertises king- and queen-sized rooms, as well an indoor grotto pool and complimentary breakfast. It also has a March 8 opening date posted.
In SBJ's spring project report, 15 active construction jobs represent more than $167.5 million in investments and 1.25 million square feet of new construction, additions and renovations.
