8/1/2011

Motel 6 Makes Life on the Road More Comfortable with Ample Space for Parking and 10% Discount.

DALLAS, Texas – Motel 6 announces its partnership with the newly-launched Web site Hotels4Truckers.com, offering the site’s members a ten percent discount on Motel 6 room reservations through Feb 1, 2012. With 1,100 properties across the United States and Canada, Hotels4Truckers.com members can find nearly 200 locations that are clean and comfortable with plenty of space to park their 75’ long oversized vehicles, at the lowest price of any national lodging chain.

“Motel 6 is pleased to make our comfortable accommodations even more affordable for trucking industry professionals,” said Olivier Poirot, CEO for Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6. “We know that finding hotels with parking areas fit for 75-foot-trailers can be a headache, and we are glad to offer a solution with sufficient space to accommodate all types of vehicles at our extensive list of properties in the U.S. and Canada.”

Hotels4Truckers.com was launched on January 27, 2011, by Dan Fuller, a trucking industry veteran determined to help fellow truckers enjoy more comfortable lifestyles while improving the image of the trucking industry as a whole. The Web site allows both members and non members to perform nationwide searches by city, state and zip code in order to locate nearby hotels capable of accommodating large trucks and vehicles. For only $10 per year, members gain access to corporate hotel chain discounts and special trucker rates listed by individual hotels. In addition to semi-truck drivers, the site is useful to bus drivers and families traveling with an extra trailer or boat.

“Thanks to Motel 6, semi-truck drivers are able to get a good night’s sleep outside of their truck’s sleeper berths and in turn enjoy more rested and comfortable lifestyles while on the road,” said Dan Fuller, founder and president of Hotels4truckers.com. “I know our members will greatly appreciate the 10% discount on their reservations across the Motel 6 network.”

Motel 6 offers a low price and great value without sacrificing comfort at locations across the United States and Canada. Standard amenities include free local phone calls, no long distance access charges, free morning coffee and an expanded cable channel line-up. All Motel 6 properties welcome pets and bobtail trucks, and most locations offer Wi-Fi Internet access, swimming pools and guest laundry facilities. Guests can make reservations by visiting www.motel6.com or calling 800-4-MOTEL6.
