LUBBOCK, Texas—The Hub City’s travelers now have a fresh lodging option in Lubbock’s newest hotel. My Place Hotel—Lubbock opened its doors on Nov. 2. The newly built, 4-story hotel features 63 rooms perfectly suited for nightly or extended stays. The hotel is located at 6219 62nd Street where guests enjoy easy access to Texas Tech University, the medical district, and Jones AT&T Stadium in addition to the diverse dining, shopping and entertainment options in the immediate area.
Texas’s second My Place Hotel is independently owned by 6219 62nd Street and was developed by KAMP Hotels, LLC, who opened its first hotel in Amarillo earlier this year. While KAMP Hotels remains the majority owner of the new Lubbock hotel entity, the My Place family is now much larger due to the fact that the new entity has a number of additional owners that share KAMP’s excitement and enthusiasm for the My Place concept.
My Place Hotel—Lubbock opens in the midst of a highly attended football season at Texas Tech University. Among the many visiting Texas Tech fans are the principals behind KAMP Hotels, Kevin Nelson and Alan Rhodes, who both earned their law degrees from Texas Tech. Nelson and Rhodes also completed their undergraduate degrees in Lubbock at Texas Tech and Lubbock Christian University, respectively.
Nelson said KAMP Hotels and the entire My Place team have worked hard to bring the exciting new hotel product to Lubbock. Now that an additional My Place is open for business in yet another city they love, Nelson said Lubbock guests can officially make My Place their place.
“Alan and I have great affinity for Lubbock since we received both our undergraduate and our law degrees here,” Nelson said. “We think Lubbock is more than ready for a new and fresh economy, extended stay product that is conveniently located near the Marsha Sharp Freeway and Milwaukee Avenue, only minutes away from Texas Tech and the medical district. We are confident Lubbock will appreciate and enjoy the My Place philosophy of skipping the unnecessary extras in favor of a great room at a reasonable price.”
My Place Hotel-Lubbock will celebrate its grand opening alongside members of the community on Nov. 9. Attendees will receive an in-depth look at the new facility and learn about the My Place concept. The event will feature food and beverages from Texas Tech’s StrEat Food Truck, Llano Estacado Winery, and McAllister’s Deli.
“It’s been a tremendous pleasure to continue our franchise partnership with Kevin Nelson, Alan Rhodes and their family at KAMP Hotels at their brand new location in Lubbock, Texas,” said Terry Kline, EVP Franchise Development, My Place Hotels of America.
