Two local hotels sold to undisclosed buyer

The Best Western near Six Flags Magic Mountain saw a 17 percent revenue gain and 39 percent net operating profit gain while under Trigild's management oversight.


Two Santa Clarita hotels, Holiday Inn Express and the Best Western sitting side-by-side off the I-5 freeway at Magic Mountain Parkway, have been sold for $21 million.

San Diego-based Trigild, a real estate services firm specializing in property asset management and fiduciary services, announced the sale on Tuesday.

The name of the buyer was not disclosed.

Trigild had been appointed as receiver of five hotels, including the two Valencia hotels, by the Superior Court of California on Nov. 22, 2013. The hotels had been held in a family trust.

“As receiver, Trigild obtained court approval to close the sale of the Best Western and Holiday Inn Express properties, despite the objection of a beneficiary of the trust,” said CEO Bill Hoffman.

Trigild would not disclose the reasons why the court placed the hotels into receivership with the hotel property and asset management firm.

Earlier in the year, in a story about the hotels, local attorney Brian Koegle with Poole & Shaffery spoke hypothetically with The Signal to explain why a receiver might be appointed by the courts. Koegle did not have any specifics about the case.

“A court will appoint a receiver when there’s a concern about how assets are being distributed, used or disposed of,” Koegle said.

The receiver physically monitors the operation and manages the revenues that a business will bring in for the courts.

Located on Wayne Mills Place, the Holiday Express has 118 rooms, and the Best Western has 120 rooms.

While under Trigild’s management oversight, revenues at both hotels improved, the company reported.

Best Western saw a 17 percent revenue gain and 39 percent net operating profit gain, while the Holiday Inn Express saw a revenue gain of 10 percent and net operating income gain of 8 percent, Hoffman said.

I always love how photographers use tricks like taking the photo in the magic hour before sunset, wetting down the parking lot, turning on every light and lamp in the building, etc. to put a property in the best light. Throw in some newly purchased potted plants next to each support beam and "Voila!", a fabulous looking property!

Exactly! It's all about presentation. How come they aren't showing the bed spreads under the black light?

Wetting down the parking lot. Where is the water police?

DM, ewwwwww! You're totally right though, lol. That's always the first thing to do in a hotel room, yank that filthy thing off the bed and throw it in a corner somewhere!

Adamtwelve may be right about China. I sure hope not.
I don't think the Saudi's would buy these properties. They like places like the Beverly Hills Hotel.

DMeyer, thanks for the sick visual. A word of advise, remove the bedspread upon check-in.

I wouldn't be surprised if the purchase wasn't related in some way to Sunkist's Corporate office moving into the building across the street. Also, with the expansion of the Valencia Commerce Center, this would be a good investment for someone.
