Motel 6 is a nationwide chain of budget hotels. Started in the early 1960s, the chain was named after the early price for the nightly rental of one of their rooms. During the company's first few years of existence, its rooms were priced at a mere $6 per night as reflected in the name. Though prices have risen over the years, Motel 6 is still the nation's most affordable budget hotel chain.
With countless locations around the country, Motel 6 is able to offer travelers a wide range of options. Travelers can find rooms that are just right for a lone business trip, rooms that are ideal for a family vacation, or even blocks of rooms for family reunions, weddings, and more. When selecting a hotel, guests can find a Motel 6 that has an indoor pool or even a hot tub. If traveling in the summer, they can select a hotel that offers an outdoor pool. Amenities like these are not available at every Motel 6 location. However, Motel 6 does offer certain amenities that are available at every location regardless of where it is.
For instance, guests can always bring their pets as long as they follow certain guidelines that are set out by Motel 6. In fact, the hotel claims to be the nation's first pet friendly hotel. Guests that stay in any Motel 6 room can watch free cable or free extended cable. They can also make free local phone calls. When they wake up in the morning, if they have brought their laptop, they can check their email easily with the hotel's free Wi-Fi, and then, they can head to the lobby where they can pour themselves a free cup of coffee. In some cases, they may even have access to free coffee grounds and a coffee brewer in their own room.
Travelers who stay at Motel 6 often have the ability to get rooms priced with a wide range of discounts. Their discounts often change, but they usually offer discounts to senior citizens, ones to students with an ISIC (International Student Identity Card) card, and ones to people who stay in their hotels for longer than a week.
