It was sad to see the former Jumer's Castle Lodge (The Lodge) demolished a few years ago, but now Bettendorf city planners say a new extended stay hotel will take it's place.

According to a QCTimes.com article a Hilton branded 107-room Home2 Suites hotel at the intersection of Interstate 74 and Spruce Hills Drive will be developed by Davenport-based Frontier Hospitality.

Developers say the project will cost about $9 million and occupy 2.5 acres of the 9.4 acre site. The new Home2 Suites will be the second Hilton-branded hotel for Bettendorf. A Hilton Garden Inn is nearby at I-74 and Middle Road.
