Motel 6 Trivia and Facts
The Motel 6 is a major chain in the United States and the cheapest of the budget motels in the United States. Let’s see how you do with a little Motel 6 trivia.
True or False: The Motel 6 gets its name from the initial cost of the hotel rooms being $6 per night.
If you guessed True, you are certainly correct. The name of the motel chain did start with the base of the price. When the first Motel 6 was created in 1961, the founders William Becker and Paul Greene budgeted everything they would need for costs and estimated how cheaply they could rent out the rooms and still keep afloat. That is where the $6 a night came from. Since then, the prices have increased over time due to compounding interest, but the chain still tries to maintain its reputation of offering the cheapest rooms. Also, at $6 a night in 1961, it would be equivalent to about $47 today. At some Motel 6 locations, you can find rooms even cheaper than that, which shows promise. Though, in many locations, their rates have increased more than interest rates, but that is also due to higher costs of living in various parts of the country.
Is Motel 6 the largest budget hotel chain in the country?
So, the Motel 6 is big. It currently has 1,190 locations, which is a lot, but not the biggest. In fact, Motel 6 comes in at number 6. The largest budget hotel is Holiday Inn Express with 1,931 locations. Still, you are very likely to find a Motel 6 in your area when you search Motel 6 Near Me.
True or False: Motel 6’s motto is “We’ll leave the light on for you.”
Well, sadly, for all of you who remember the award winning commercial campaign that lasted for over 20 years, might not have known that back in 2012 the company changed up its advertising campaign. The “We’ll leave the light on for you” was created in 1986 by Tom Bodett. Actually, Bodett admitted recently that the phrase was improvised. In 2012, the company changed its motto to “50 years, the Light’s still on.” While the message is similar, it reflects the history the company has already established and aims to keep people knowing that it still offers a consistent and welcoming place to stay.
