Visitors to the Augusta area will soon have a new hotel option in Columbia County.
A Maryland-based hotel development group has purchased a 2.7-acre lot and plans to build a new Fairfield by Marriott hotel (see photo above provided by Meybohm) near I-20 in Grovetown. Construction on the hotel, which will be located next to Home2 Suites near both Kroger and Walmart, is expected to begin by the end of the year. Meybohm Commercial Properties represented the development group in purchasing the land. Fairfield has nearly 1,000 locations worldwide, including one located at 3023 ½ Washington Road near I-20 and Starbucks in Augusta. Rates vary by location, but in Augusta, they currently start at $102 per night.
