There are mixed reactions from around the community about the Best Western and restaurant that are going to be built on Main St. South in Dauphin.

Ryan Rauliuk thinks it will help with the festivals. At this point, he doesn’t want to make a prediction for the restaurant. He hopes it will be a locally owned restaurant that uses local resources.

Stan from Dauphin isn’t so fond of the restaurant.

“It doesn’t help me so what’s the difference.”

He isn’t pleased with the Best Western either.

“I think two hotels is enough for Dauphin. It’s just a money racket because it’s only for festivals and that’s it. I don’t profit out of the hotel that’s what it is.”

Al Jackie who works at the Dauphin Marketplace Mall is more enthused about the two.

“I think it’s good for the city, more and more competition, more spaces, it’s always good. I hope it’s a family type restaurant.”
