June 8, 2011 - Norfolk, NE

Supertel Hospitality, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPPR) announced today the refinancing of its Sleep Inn Hotel in Omaha, NE for $3.1 million with Elkhorn Valley Bank, one of the company's lenders. The $2.5 million of proceeds were used to repay the mortgage on the property held by Wells Fargo Bank and the balance of the proceeds were applied to Supertel's revolving credit facility. The five year loan bears a 6.25% interest rate, amortized on a 15 year schedule and is secured by a mortgage on the hotel.

"We believe that by working closely with our lenders, involving them in the firm's overall strategy for re-positioning the company and strengthening the balance sheet, credit for seasoned hospitality assets can be obtained, even in today's difficult market," said Kelly A. Walters, Supertel's president & CEO.
