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, on 1.56 acres at U.S. Highway 30 and State Route 83. 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 complement our growth in the state and reinforce our other locations including New Philadelphia, Ashland and Zanesville," said Amerihost president and chief executive officer Michael P. Holtz.
 Amerihost expects to begin construction within the next 30 days and open the hotel this winter. The property will be constructed to specifications for the Amerihost hotel prototype featuring an interior corridor and pool.
 The two-story structure will have 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.
 "Wooster is strategically located on U.S. Highway 30, the primary route serving the north central portion of Ohio. The county is considered the `Gateway to the Amish Territory,' thus creating a regional tourism base," said Holtz. "We feel this is an excellent location for an Amerihost property and we look forward to opening our doors for business."
 Amerihost was founded in 1984 and became publicly traded in 1987. Its first hotel was a 60-room property in Sullivan, Ind., which is still part of the portfolio. Amerihost currently manages 52 hotels with over 5,800 rooms in 11 states, primarily in the Midwest and southeastern U.S. Wooster is the 16th Amerihost property in Ohio. Other states where Amerihost operates properties are; Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont and Wisconsin. The properties are generally located in secondary or tertiary markets.
 Amerihost offers a variety of services to the mid-market lodging industry including market analysis, site selection, site development, construction, renovation, and hotel operations. In addition, the company offers employee leasing to properties it manages. Employee leasing is an economical way to offer a better benefits package to property level employees. This range of services has contributed to Amerihost becoming the tenth largest hotel management company in the U.S. in 1992 according to Hotel & Motel Management magazine, an industry publication.
