JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A new hotel may be coming to Jonesboro.

Comfort Inn is looking at building a 4-story, 70-room hotel on Phillips Drive.

The Jonesboro Metropolitan Area Planning Commission will consider a conditional use permit for the hotel at their meeting Tuesday.

If approved, the inn will be located beside Hot Wired Audio behind Casey's General Store on Caraway Road.

The city had to amend a city ordinance last year to allow hotels to build in that area.
