Another Missed Deadline: Still no buyer for an Eau Claire hotel


Eau Claire (WQOW) - We don't know whether a prospective buyer checked out for good, but we do know another deadline has passed and the future of a downtown hotel remains unclear.

A Minneapolis law firm had until Monday to decide whether to buy the former Ramada in Eau Claire for $1.65 million.  That was the second highest bid at a recent sheriff's auction.  The company with the winning bid opened the door for the runner-up when it failed to pay the balance for the hotel.

On Tuesday, Eau Claire's Own News 18 was told the Minneapolis firm, which represents a mystery developer, did not meet Monday's deadline, but may still be interested in the property... just not at the bid it made at auction.

There's a court hearing later this week and it's possible we could learn whether the hotel will be put up for auction for the third time this year.
