The Chief Motel has been a fixture in Ahoskie at least since the 1950's. New life is being infused now as son Dipesh Suarti joins his father and owner since the 1980's, Vinod Suarti. Dipesh comes with his family from the lodging industry in Wilmington NC to Ahoskie to take on renovation and management of the property with his father remaining as a partner. The roof has been replaced and fresh paint has been applied. Keyless entry security doors have now replaced the keyed doors of yesterday and a full renovation of the rooms has begun. When completed all rooms will be fully renovated and the drives and parking lots will enjoy new pavement. The Suarti family has fully engaged in our community. Dipesh is a new member of the Ahoskie Rotary Club, his wife has joined a local bank and their children are happily settled in school. Welcome Suartis!
