TEWKSBURY — Guests staying at the Motel Caswell will pack their bags for the last time at the end of this month, when the Route 38 staple closes its doors after 59 years in the Caswell family.
The motel will close at noon on Monday, Aug. 25, according to owner Russ Caswell.
The motel is expected to be demolished in late August or September to make way for a new entertainment complex, owned and operated by Tewksbury residents.
“We’re looking for it to be a New England destination,” said Don MacLaren Jr., who is in the process of buying the 4.5-acre property with his father, Don MacLaren Sr. The sale has not been finalized, pending approval of the demolition permit.
