2700 S. Perkins Road
Loan Amount: $3 million
Memphis, TN 38118 

Loan Date: June 27, 2014
Maturity Date: July 1, 2017
Borrower: HC Memphis
Lender: Access Point Financial Inc.
Details: The new owner of the Inn at Thousand Oaks hotel at 2700 S. Perkins Road in Parkway Village has filed a $3 million loan on the property.

HC Memphis LLC, an affiliate of Indianapolis-based Hotel Capital LLC, filed the deed of trust and security agreement through Access Point Financial Inc. The borrower had recently purchased the hotel following a first-run foreclosure notice filed earlier this year.

HC Memphis paid $2.2 million for the 130-room hotel at Perkins and Interstate 240 in a June successor trustee’s deed from attorney Douglas M. Alrutz of Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs LLP.

The property entered foreclosure when the previous owner, VMN Memphis LLC, defaulted on a $6 million loan dated August 2006 through Countrywide Commercial Real Estate Finance Inc. A first-run foreclosure notice appeared in The Daily News Feb. 4.

VMN Memphis LLC bought the hotel in 2006, when it was known as the Hampton Inn-Memphis, from Perkins Hotel Partners LP for $7 million, securing the property with the loan that later went into default.

Built in 1994, the 63,778-square-foot, five-story hotel sits on 2.2 acres along the east side of South Perkins Road between I-240 and American Way. The Shelby County Assessor of Property’s 2014 appraisal is $3.8 million.

Hotel Capital is a “private equity real estate investment firm that provides debt and equity capital to the hospitality industry,” according to the company’s website.
