Realstar Hospitality is a subsidiary of Realstar Group,a dynamic and privately owned real estate investment and management company with over $9 billion in assets. Their focus on rental residential, hospitality and alternative asset classes is unmatched in the industry.
Founded in 1974 by Jonas Prince and Wayne Squibb, Realstar was created to provide high-quality, affordable homes for rent in Canada. Since then, Realstar has grown into one of the largest private owner-operators of rental properties in Canada, with over 25,000 units across the country. Their success in the rental housing sector has led them to expand into several ventures in the hospitality industry, not just in Canada but also in Asia, the US, and the Caribbean.
In 2002, Ryan Prince established Realstar's UK operation, and the company has since acquired and developed over £3B of assets. The company recently created UNCLE, a brand new rental housing concept rated #1 on Trust Pilot in the UK. UNCLE's mission is to provide 'renting as it should be,' and since its launch in 2017, it has opened 11 locations in London, Leeds, and Manchester, with plans to double in size over the next 3-5 years through its joint venture with QuadReal.
Realstar's proven expertise in the hospitality sector encompasses a wide range of current and past brands and assets, including:

Motel 6was founded in Santa Barbara, California, in 1962, by two local 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, 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 famous for creating the concept of economy lodging. Owners can 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.
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 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.
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 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 of the extended stay segment’s fastest-growing economy brands.
With no cost to join, guests can easily sign up for a My6 account online and unlock a world of advantages. Canadian members can now enjoy the all-new My6 Marketplace Canada Perks, a collection of exclusive deals and discounts with over 125 retailers.
