Jasper’s Hampton Inn Expands; Remodels

HamptonJasper (Local Sources) – A major expansion and renovation is underway at Jasper’s Hampton Inn.

Seventeen new rooms are being added to the back of the hotel during the first phase of the project (pictured). The hotel is located next to the Schnitzelbank Restaurant.

In a news release, co-owner Gail Hettinger says when the expansion is finished this fall, work will begin to refurbish the remaining 73 rooms, lobbies, exterior and other parts of the building. The hotel will remain open during the construction.

Hettinger says the entire project will be completed by the end of 2018 and will raise the total room count to 90.

“The hotel is 17 years old; and it will look and feel brand-new when all the work is finished,” she says.

About two new full-time and two part-time jobs may be created, adding to the hotel’s current 17 employees.

Hettinger, who is part of the family that owns the Schnitzelbank, obtained financing for the Hampton Inn project from the U.S. Small Business Administration 504 loan program through German American Bank and the Indiana Statewide Certified Development Corporation.

Jasper’s Hampton Inn and Schnitzelbank restaurant are two of several business properties owned by the family of Larry and Betty Hanselman who founded the Schnitzelbank 56 years ago.

Three generations of the family are involved in the business that also includes Klub Haus 61 in the former Jasper Country Club, Schnitzelbank Catering and the Schnitz Brewhouse & Pub; all in Jasper.

Gail Hettinger is Larry and Betty Hanselman’s daughter.
