Good Night Inn and Suite Baymeadow 770 LLC, a company affiliated with hotelier Yuval Fishman, bought the Hotel Roma Golden Glades Resort at 16805 Northwest 12th Avenue, The Real Deal has learned. The price equates to $58,252 per room.
The sellers are companies affiliated with Francisco Martinez Celeiro, who acted in spaghetti western films under the name George Martin, and now runs the Miami-based Pegaso property management company with his son, Francisco Martinez-Miyashiki.
Ahmed Kabani of Marcus & Millichap listed the property and secured the buyer, according to a press release.
