Delta throwback: Checking in at the Town & Country

The Delta Town & Country Inn is gone now, being replaced by a new hotel/casino complex

Its central location and meeting rooms made the hotel a community hub for decades

Let’s take a step back to the late 1960s and visit the new Delta Town & Country Inn.

The hotel played host to countless guests and functions for over 50 years.

The hotel at the junction of highways 17A and 99 was torn down a couple of years ago to make way for Gateway’s $87-million casino/hotel complex now under construction.

Peter Toigo purchased the hotel in the early 1980s and the site remains under the family’s ownership.

Gateway, which signed a long-term lease for the site, currently won’t provide a date when the new facility is expected to open.

Gateway notes that’s because its resources continue to be focused on re-opening its existing casinos and adjusting to the challenges of the “new normal” that COVID-19 has brought to the gaming industry.
