Clarion Inn near Evansville Regional Airport (KEVV) closes

The Clarion Inn on U.S. 41 North and its Steeplechase Cafe closed on Friday, citing “issues beyond the control of management.”

The hotel is located just north of Lynch Road, near Evansville Regional Airport.

Late Friday afternoon, the hotel’s message sign wished passers-by “Merry Christmas,” and a large Christmas tree and other holiday decorations adorned the lobby. But the hotel’s parking lot was almost empty, the front door was locked and “CLOSED” signs were posted on the main entrance and side doors.

No one at the hotel was available to comment, but in a written statement the business said it was in the process of issuing refunds to guests who had made advance deposits for lodging.

According to the statement, attributed to Skyway Management LLC, the hotel and restaurant closed after lunch on Friday.

“Issues beyond the control of management have made this very difficult decision necessary,” the statement said.

“Due to the traditional slow period in the industry in January and February, it became impractical to continue into next year. We are sorry for the inconvenience this will inevitably cause.”

Skyway Management LLC is registered to Gary Nickolick.
