The Capri Whitestone Hotel — adjacent to where Donald Trump is about to open his Ferry Point Park golf course — has hit the market.

The 95-room motel at 555 Hutchinson River Parkway was last sold in 2008, for $11.7 million. The building is separated from the golf course, which is set to open next year, by the Hutchinson River Parkway. Earlier this year, its union workers protested wage cuts and the facility is known for bedbugs, bloody mattresses and hourly customers, the New York Daily News reported.

There’s no price listed for the 98,000-square-foot building. According to the Daily News, the motel’s listing promises “significant development rights” for interested buyers.

The motel closed earlier this year when the Hotel Trades Council charged Capri Whitestone’s owner Ankoor Naik with cutting the wages of room attendants as well as eliminating their healthcare and retirement benefits. [NYDN] — Claire Moses
