New hotel opening in Eagle Pass,Sept 15th.It's seems that Eagle Pass is surpassing Del Rio in hotels being built. First the Marriott and now the Microtel.One would think DelRio had nmore because of Amistad lake. Does not make sense.

Lake has no water, eagle pass has lots of money coming through the area due to casino, oil and gas drilling in the area and major corruption

In 5 years the city of Eagle Pass will fall apart. The city is building too fast and building businesses that the majority of its citizens cannot afford. Once the drug money dries up and the oil rig jobs are cut in half you will see these buisness close up shop.

Yeah but they still have the Casino, and it looks like the state will not legalize gambling anytime soon so the Kickapoo will continue its monopoly.

The Kickapoo Casino had 1.2 million visitors in 2011. With the Kickapoo Hotel and Expansion coming in 2013, expect for that number to double.

As for the Oil and Gas jobs, there are rumors of another major oil find besides that of the Eagle Ford Shale. Maverick County sits entirely over an separate area called the "Pearsall Shale" and its possible this area may bring the types of benefits just as big as the Eagle Ford.

People have been saying this about Eagle Pass's growth for a long time. The motel rooms are being booked as fast as they are being built. A Hilton is in the process of starting construction along with the Kickapoo Motel. As for the "drug money", all the border towns including Del Rio have as many people involved with drug trafficking and money laudering. If you know better, you know that this people do not invest in local businesses, they invest in other parts of the world. The groups investing in Eagle Pass know the potential in there. This are millions of dollars they are investing. They know more than we do. They are not stupid.
