The Red Roof Inn property in Newport was sold for $1.1 million to a Gatlinburg hotel owner after a foreclosure on Thursday afternoon.

Thompson Carr Real Estate & Auction handled the 2 p.m. sale that followed just minutes after Citizens National Bank (CNB) of Sevierville executed a foreclosure. About three dozen people were at the former restaurant location inside the building.

Bidding opened at $800,000 with bidders from Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina along with local business and property owners. Bibben Patel placed the winning bid after no one would offer $1,150,000.

Patel was not at the sale but was represented by his son, Kenny Patel, who was bidding over a telephone. Todd Thompson auctioned the property, known as the former Holiday Inn property.
