Sleep Inn to occupy former West Hanover Twp. motel site
A Sleep Inn & Suites hotel is slated to open this spring on Allentown Boulevard, also known as Route 22, in West Hanover Township, Dauphin County.
The three-story hotel replaces the former L&M Motel at 7100 Allentown Blvd. It will be nearly 30,000 square feet with 44 guest rooms, said Nilesh Patel, who will own and operate the facility with his brother, Vinay, and sister, Nalina.

The family has owned the site since 1985. The motel was demolished in the summer and work began on the new hotel.
The Sleep Inn & Suites should be open by the end of May or beginning of June, Patel said.
West Hanover approved the project in 2008, said Elizabeth England, the township's manager. Its start was delayed by financing, Patel said.
