Motel 6

Motel 6 was founded in Santa Barbara, California, in 1962, by two local building contractors, William Becker and Paul Greene. The partners developed a plan to build motels with rooms at bargain rates.

The brand has built a strong reputation in the marketplace for providing quality and comfortable lodging, at an affordable rate. Growth in Canada has been compelling, both with new build and conversion locations. Reinventing economy lodging, the award-winning Motel 6 prototype features modern styling and functionality. Newly-designed rooms with contemporary furnishings have positioned Motel 6 as a highly desirable brand.

A Motel 6 franchisee will enjoy immediate recognition with a name that’s famous for creating the concept of economy lodging. Owners have the opportunity to take advantage of turnkey tools and services designed to optimize business. The brand’s “no frills attitude” means lower operating costs and greater flow-through to owners.

Studio 6

The first Studio 6 opened in El Paso, TX, in 1998 with the transformation of an existing Motel 6 into an extended-stay concept. Studio 6 properties allow for guests to stay in the comforts of home while enjoying an inclusive rate, competitive to the economy extended-stay tier.

The Studio 6 prototype features a contemporary, simple and functional design that is a major step forward for extended-stay lodging. The studios are approximately 260-320 square feet featuring an open floor plan to make best use of space.

All locations offer an updated modern room layout featuring a comfortable seating area, sleeping area and fully furnished kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, cooktop stove and cookware. The brand looks very similar to a Motel 6 (think wood effect flooring, granite countertops, flat panel TVs, and a chic design and colour scheme).

Perfect for owners looking to operate within a proven business model, the time is now to invest in one the extended stay segment’s fastest growing economy brands.
