OXFORD — The $15 million Hampton Inn on Route 26 is set to open Oct. 1, according to Town Manager Derik Goodine.

Goodine said he and selectmen met Aug. 25 in executive session with GIRI I Oxford LLC President Ashish Sangani, a Massachusetts developer of multiple hotels under the GIRI Hotels name.

Goodine said selectmen asked Sangani to meet with them to discuss issues pertaining to economic development.

Goodine said the board asked Sangani questions about the hotel and its development, and will do the same type of “monitoring” when construction of the Oxford Casino hotel across the road gets underway.

That information, Goodine said, allows the board to better define issues such as credit enhancement agreements for other future development in the area.

Ground for the 92-room, four-story hotel was broken in March 2014.

The roughly 4-acre property was sold by Suzanne Hall, owner of Crestholm Farms. The hotel has faced four liens since construction began, but at least three have been resolved and none has affected construction, according to John K.S. Cleary, vice president for hospitality at Calamar, the general contractor.
