MOTEL 6 NAMED TOP PET-FRIENDLY BUDGET HOTEL BY PETSIDE.COM

6/4/2009

 

DALLAS, Texas (June 4, 2009) – Recently, Motel 6, the largest corporately owned and operated hotel chain in North America, was named as the top pet-friendly budget hotel chain by Petside.com in their annually released list of Top Five Pet-Friendly Hotels. Petside.com, the popular online destination for pet owners and pet enthusiasts, gives Motel 6 a “four paw” rating for its welcoming and well-established pet policy. Pet friendly since 1962, and more than 1,000 properties in the Motel 6 network across the United States and Canada, Motel 6 offers the lowest price of any national chain.

“We are honored to have been selected by Petside.com for this award,” said Olivier Poirot, CEO for Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6. “It can be stressful and expensive to leave your pet at home when the family takes a vacation. We are happy to help summer travelers save money on lodging while bringing their beloved pet along for the fun.”

As part of their ongoing commitment to pet-friendliness, Motel 6 has recently partnered with the American Kennel Club (AKC®) and Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) to offer AKC and CFA registered dog and cat owners a 10% discount on their room rates at any Motel 6 or Studio 6 location across the U.S. and Canada. For a complete list of Motel 6 locations across the country and to view the full Motel 6 Pet Policy, visit www.motel6.com.

Motel 6 offers a low price and great value without sacrificing comfort. Standard amenities include free local phone calls, no long distance access charges, free morning coffee, data ports, Wi-Fi Internet access and a channel line-up including HBO, ESPN/ESPN2, and CNN. All Motel 6 properties welcome pets, and most locations offer swimming pools and guest laundry facilities.

Motel 6 Pet Policy

At Motel 6, service animals and well-behaved pets always stay free ($10.00 per day pet fee to a maximum of $50.00 per stay at Studio 6 locations only). They are permitted unless they pose a health or safety risk or are prohibited by law. To ensure a great trip with your furry friend, please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Animals that pose a health or safety risk may not remain onsite, and include those that, in our managers’ discretion, are too numerous for any one room, cause damage to our property or that of other guests, are too disruptive, are not properly attended, or demonstrate undue aggression.
  • Animals that assist the disabled, known as “Service Animals,” are always welcome. Like pets, however, any Service Animal that poses a health or safety risk may not remain onsite.
  • All pets and Service Animals must be declared at check-in. This is very important because it provides our staff with key information about the occupants of each room.
  • Due to safety concerns for our employees and your pet, we will not service a room with an unattended pet. All rooms at Motel 6 should be serviced every day (or every other day upon request) to maintain health and cleanliness standards. With extended stays at Studio 6, rooms should be serviced twice per week. If your unattended pet prevents our staff from servicing your room, you may be asked to vacate the property.
  • In consideration of all guests, pets must be attended to and under control at all times. Pets should not be left alone in a room or automobile. If unavoidable circumstances require a pet to remain in a room while the owner is offsite, the pet must be secured in a crate or travel carrier on your service day to avoid injury or damage.
  • Pets must be on a leash or securely carried outside of guest rooms and under control at all times.
  • Please be considerate of other guests when walking pets on the property and clean up after your pet.
  • If your pet or Service Animal does not comply with any of the above guidelines, you may be asked to vacate the property with or without a refund.

We appreciate your cooperation and we look forward to your stay.
