PORT CHARLOTTE -- Two large hotel developments in Punta Gorda are tangled in legal webs that prevent them from breaking ground.
They're taking so long that a new hotel in Port Charlotte may well be open and competing for tourists and dollars a lot sooner.
The proposed Microtel Inn & Suites would be an 89-room, three-story, moderately-priced hotel off Tamiami Trail and Westchester Boulevard, less than four miles from Punta Gorda.
It would offer a spa, pool and other amenities to compete with the proposed luxury projects, City Marketplace and Harbor Inn & Yacht Club.
