Hotels for New Town

NEW TOWN The 91-room Little Missouri Inn & Suites family-style hotel and 103-room Teddy’s Residential Suites extended-stay hotel will be opening this year on the east side of New Town.

Brett and Trisha Erdmann, of New Leaf Hospitality and Development in Watford City, are the co-owners and managment team for the project. Brett Erdmann is originally from Williston and Trisha Erdmann is originally from Rutland.

Little Missouri is scheduled to open in mid-June and Teddy’s in mid-September, said Brett Erdmann, president and CEO of New Leaf.

Little Missouri and Teddy’s hotels opened last year in Watford City and the developers are working on plans for hotels in Belfield.

New Town’s Little Missouri Inn & Suites is a 91-room hotel with indoor pool with a jacuzzi, a meeting room and state-of-art fitness facility. Complimentary hot breakfast will be served each day.

Teddy’s Residential Suites in New Town is a 103-room extended-stay hotel. Every suite has a fully supplied kitchen including full-size refrigerator, cook-top stove, microwave, garbage disposal and dishwasher. Each room has a 46-inch TV. The hotel will include a whirlpool spa, conference room, meeting rooms, billiards room and Teddy’s Lounge with outdoor patio. There are one- and two-bedroom suites.

Brett Erdmann said a Subway restaurant will be built just south of the hotel complex.

The Erdmanns said they hope to develop 63 acres in New Town for commercial or mixed use. The acreage is adjacent to the hotel complex.

Earlier the Erdmanns developed the Little Missouri Inn & Suites and a Teddy’s Residentail Suites in the South Park Development along U.S. Highway 85 in Watford City. Those hotels opened in June and September, respectively, in 2013.

The company has local investors and local financers for its projects in each area.

The New Town project is financed by Lakeside State Bank in New Town and the Watford City project is financed by First International bank and Trust in Watford City, Brett Erdmann said.

The Erdmanns are working on plans to build Little Missouri and Teddy’s hotels in Belfield, and hope to break ground for those hotels in July, Brett Erdmann said.

Trisha Erdmann said the properties’ names, Little Missouri and Teddy’s, are for Theodore Roosevelt Park, the Little Missouri River and the Little Missouri Grasslands in western North Dakota.

Brett Erdmann said they plan to develop Little Missouri and Teddy’s hotels in three other cities in western North Dakota and will announce those plans later.
