After numerous delays in construction and with little notice, the Comfort Inn on Gibbons Street in Goderich is open.
It's the town's first facility to be run by an international chain.
Ground was broken almost exactly two years ago on the former Victoria Public School site after a delay of several months.
Because of various issues, the 60-room hotel was finished almost one year after the originally-projected opening date of September 2018.
The four-storey Comfort Inn also offers a business centre, fitness centre, indoor pool and a meeting room for up to 100 people.
First guests of the Comfort Inn in Goderich were accepted on Monday.
