About Us

"Clean, comfortable rooms and great experiences."

Founded in 1962 in Santa Barbara, California, Motel 6 is synonymous with a great travel value. The first Motel 6 in Santa Barbara still leaves the light on today, but a lot has changed for the motel chain that pioneered the first real economy motel designed for the no-frills traveler. The original price of a night's stay at Motel 6 was just $6.00, and thus established the brand name for an American classic.

The promise of the iconic brand is to offer clean, comfortable rooms and great experiences at any of our locations in the US and Canada. Motel 6 is a household name, synonymous with quality and value. It enjoys the highest brand recognition factor of any U.S. economy lodging brand.

The brand continues to grow and currently has approximately more than 1,400 locations across the United States and Canada. Part of G6 Hospitality, Motel 6 is the largest owned and operated hotel chain in North America.

Advertising

The brand's advertising campaign, featuring on-air personality Tom Bodett, began in 1986 and proved an instant success for Motel 6, turning the chain into a household name and winning industry awards. The campaign has won more advertising awards than any other brand in the lodging industry, which is understandable, given that Motel 6 has the highest advertising recognition factor in the economy lodging category. Ask most people about Motel 6, and they will say, "That's the place where they leave the light on for you." In 1999, Motel 6 was acknowledged by Advertising Magazine as having one of the top 100 advertising campaigns in the last 100 years. Motel 6 was the only lodging company to earn this distinction.

 

 

There is nothing more important to our company than the safety and well-being of our guests, our team members, and the communities in which we operate. Motel 6 and Studio 6 hotels implement a variety of practices that help to prevent human trafficking through enhanced safety and security procedures; employee and franchise education, training and response; and partnerships and advocacy.

G6 condemns all forms of human trafficking. Trafficking of people violates basic human rights and constitutes a global societal problem in which multiple stakeholders must partner to eradicate this problem. G6, with a focus on its Motel 6 and Studio 6 brands, takes a proactive, zero-tolerance stance on human trafficking.

POLICIES, PROCEDURES, AND GOVERNANCE

Codes of Conduct:  Specific requirements and policies that reinforce our commitment to preventing human trafficking, developed for team members, suppliers, franchise owners.

Confidential Reporting Hotline:  Method for team members or other staff to report breaches of the Code of Conduct or violations in our anti-human trafficking policies.

Safety and Security:  Compliance requirements for all properties include multiple measures designed to stop human trafficking and other criminal activity.

· Enhanced background-check requirements for team members

· Enhanced check-in process and identity verification for guests

· Updated “Do Not Rent” system across entire Motel 6 network

· “Every room, every day” policy requiring daily room inspection

· Property scorecards tracking safety improvementssuch as lighting, fencing, etc.

EDUCATION, TRAINING, AND RESPONSE

Our commitment to anti-trafficking efforts is made clear through our comprehensive awareness, training and response program. In 2018, G6 overhauled its training materials and program to ensure it was relevant for Motel 6 and Studio 6 team members and contained updated information on our anti trafficking efforts, including how to spot the signs of and help prevent human trafficking.

Motel 6 and Studio 6 trains all staff—from the General Manager through the most junior housekeepers—to be the “eyes and ears” and to alert the property’s General Manager, local police, and the Motel 6/Studio 6 Hotline upon observing any signs of suspected human trafficking or prostitution.

Motel 6 and Studio 6 require Anti-trafficking Signage with the National Human Trafficking Hotline be displayed in public areas and in team centers in all hotels.

PARTNERSHIP AND ADVOCACY

G6 is committed to working with anti-trafficking and survivor services organizations. In 2019, G6 signed the ECPAT Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct (www.thecode.org), which is a joint venture of the tourism and hospitality sectors and ECPAT-USA (www.ecpatusa.org/), a leader in advocacy and efforts to shape policy designed to end the commercial sexual exploitation of children. Built upon a set of shared business principles that travel-related organizations put in place to help prevent human trafficking and exploitation, the Code establishes a framework for companies to provide training, education, and collaboration with other stakeholders.

In addition to becoming an ECAPT-USA member in 2019, Motel 6 is the first hotel company to become a member of the Texas Businesses Against Trafficking Alliance. Through our active membership of the American Hotel & Lodging Association (www.ahla.com), G6 participates in the industry-wide No Room for Trafficking campaign as well as issue roundtables, public awareness and state advocacy days. In addition, we provide financial support to several organizations working at the forefront of anti-trafficking efforts and survivor support programs including New Friends, New Life and Truckers Against Trafficking. In 2020, G6 will begin a partnership with the University of North Texas Foundation to create the G6 Hospitality Opportunity Fund, focused on at-risk and under-served students.

SURVIVOR SUPPORT

G6 recognizes that often trafficking survivors face significant challenges in accessing resources and social services to rebuild their lives. According to Polaris, in many parts of the United States, specialized survivor support and recovery programs may not exist or are under-resourced to meet the high demand for services and assistance. As a result, G6 is spearheading the creation of an industrywide Survivor Support Fund to assist with the immediate and long-term needs of survivors including food, housing, clothing/goods, medical/legal/counseling services, job training/education/placement. The Fund is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2020 and will be overseen by an executive director and an External Advisory Council, with representatives from survivor advocacy organizations (including survivors), law enforcement, industry experts, among others.

Motel 6 & Studio 6 offers more than 1,400 company-owned and franchised locations throughout the United States and Canada. Motel 6 was the first national pet friendly chain, welcoming pets since 1962. Standard amenities include free local phone calls, no long distance access charges, free morning coffee, data ports, Wi-Fi Internet access and cable channel line-up with premium channels including HBO, ESPN/ESPN2, and CNN. Most locations offer swimming pools and guest laundry facilities.

Studio 6 extended stay hotels offer the affordable comfort of furnished studios, low weekly rates and accommodating hotel amenities. You will find Studio 6 locations in the United States and Canada conveniently located in major business complexes, offering easy access to shopping and retail centers, entertainment areas, and restaurants.
