AMERIHOST PROPERTIES TO BUILD WOOSTER, OHIO HOLIDAY INN

 DES PLAINES, Ill., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Amerihost Properties, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: HOST), which builds, develops, acquires and manages midmarket hotels, today announced it will develop and build a 58-room Holiday Inn Express in Wooster, Ohio. Amerihost will manage the property and retain a 25 percent equity position in the hotel.
 "Amerihost has a strong presence in Ohio. This location will enhance our growth in the state and reinforce our other hotels in the state including those in New Philadelphia, Ashland and Zanesville," said Amerihost President and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Holtz.
 Wooster is in northeast Ohio, approximately 95 miles northeast of Columbus and 20 miles west of Canton. The hotel will be situated on 1.56 acres on U.S. Highway 30 and State Route 83. U.S. Highway 30 provides the most direct access to interstates 71 and 77 for this region.
 The property will be constructed to specifications for the Amerihost hotel prototype featuring an interior corridor and pool. The two-story structure will feature two whirlpool suites, an indoor pool and recreation center with a whirlpool, sauna and limited exercise equipment, and a meeting room to accommodate 40 people. It will also offer a business center that provides copying, computer and facsimile services for guests. A complimentary continental breakfast will be served in the lobby daily to all registered guests.
 Area attractions include the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, a division of Ohio State University. It has been located in Wooster since 1892 and draws 8,000 visitors annually. In addition, Wooster is home to Wooster College and is the "Gateway to Amish Country."
 "Wooster is strategically located on U.S. Highway 30, the primary route serving the north central portion of Ohio, and the county is considered the "Gateway to the Amish Territory," thus creating a regional tourism base," Holtz added. "We feel this is an excellent location for an Amerihost property and look forward to opening our doors for business," he concluded.
 Amerihost currently manages 52 hotels with over 5,800 rooms in 11 states, primarily in the Midwest and southeastern U.S. Other states where Amerihost operates properties are: Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont and Wisconsin.
