MOORHEAD - The Travelodge by Wyndham is being converted into a new home for Anchorage Recovery, a Moorhead residential and outpatient treatment center that provides addiction and mental health services.

The Travelodge at 3027 S. Frontage Road is listed as permanently closed online. A truck was dropping off a large rolloff Dumpster, normally used for demolition debris, in the parking lot Tuesday morning, Sept. 7.

Anchorage has its offices downtown at 725 Center Ave.

Plans for a treatment facility at the hotel site - on the south side of U.S. Highway 10 - are still being developed, Anchorage’s Director of Treatment Services Wendy Walton said Tuesday.

“It will be a few months,” before plans for the site are fully fleshed out and ready to be revealed, Walton said.

“We’ll offer the same level of care that we do here,” Walton said.

On its website, Anchorage lists Carmen Wilson as the company’s president and Dr. Greg Bjerke as medical director.

It is unclear when the hotel stopped doing business, however, Tripadvisor reviews indicated that it was still serving customers in July and August.
The reason for the hotel’s closure wasn’t publicized, though several hotels in the Fargo-Moorhead area experienced temporary closures due to the pandemic, and over time some closed permanently.
