The Clock Tower Resort will close for the winter, sources confirm to Eyewitness News.
The resort on E. State Street has been clouded in controversy lately, after a shooting inside a hotel room back in October left one person dead, and two critically hurt. The Coco Key Indoor Water Park at the resort was shut down by the health department last year.
The City of Rockford was considering potential penalties against the hotel following the shooting. City code enforcement officials did order the resort to update several violations that were found during a five-hour inspection of the hotel and conference center in the days after the fatal shooting.
It is unclear if the shooting or violations played any role in the decision to close.
We will continue to follow this story and provide updates as they’re made available.
