Getting a loan for a Condohotel is very difficult in this current economic climate.  Not all condos are challenging but Condohotels which are condos with a front desk are a major challenge these days.  I am finding that there are some loans available but that the interest rates are very high and in the range of about 8% to 9%.  I find this really suprises buyers who see some very low interest rates being advertised by banks.   Banks not only look at the buyer but they also look at the type of property that the buyer wants to purchase.  Banks look at condohotels as a high risk property.
