Motel 6 Began in 1962 with one property in Southern California, Motel 6 is now one of the largest company-owned and operated lodging chains in the United States. Motel 6 began the concept of a nationwide economy chain — where travelers can find consistent quality at the best price of any national brand. “No-frills” is the Motel 6 virtue. For 40 years, Motel 6 has sent a message to the public, selling a clean comfortable room at the best price of any national chain.
Motel 6 has since become a household name, synonymous with no-frills value. Motel 6 is franchised by Accor North America, Inc. With 3,700 hotels worldwide, Accor is a global leader in the hotel industry. In the U.S. and Canada, Accor franchises economy lodging leaders Motel 6, Red Roof Inns and Studio 6. Of Accor’s 1,200+ North American properties, today 230 are franchised. An integral part of our growth strategy will include franchise relationships with a diverse mix of entrepreneurs that share the Accor spirit of quality, fairness and respect.
These same ideals have recently gained Accor the AAFD’s Fair Franchising Seal. Accor is privileged to have received support from 98% of our franchisees, and we are proud to have been awarded this notable Seal.
