Pflugerville’s first hotel to open next year


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Pflugerville’s first hotel – a 70 room, $5 million Best Western Plus – will open next year.

Construction will begin in 90 days and its completion is expected in mid-2015 at 130 Commerce Center, a mixed-use development under construction at the southwest corner of SH 130 and Pecan Street. The Pflugerville Community Development Corporation approved an economic development agreement that sold the 3-acre tract of land at a discounted price. They will reimburse up to $100,000 of city development fees and provide $25,000 a year for four years to the hotel for marketing and run water, sewer lines, offsite detention and drainage, natural gas and chilled water to the site. They will also make a sign for 130 Commerce Center that will feature Best Western.

The development corporation said the Hawaiian Falls Waterpark and Adventure Park was a big draw for Best Western developers to put a hotel in the city. Hawaiian Falls is expected to attract 300,000 guests annually. Pflugerville has 50,000 residents.

Best Western will be hiring for five full-time positions and 10 part-time jobs in Pflugerville.

Lightwater Hospitality No. 1 and RamRan Holdings are the developers for the new hotel. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
