Motel 6 Launches App for iPhone and iPod touch

(July 12, 2011)

DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 07/12/11 -- Motel 6 today announced the Motel 6 App for iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. The Motel 6 App makes it simple for guests to quickly find and book rooms at more than 1,100 locations in the United States and Canada.

"As more of our guests turn to their iPhones for quick access to information on the go, it is clear that a Motel 6 App for iPhone and iPod touch is the perfect tool to help guests locate and book Motel 6 accommodations during their travels," said Olivier Poriot, CEO of Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6. "Now guests have the ability to locate and reserve a room at Motel 6 while on the go."

The app uses the iPhone's built-in GPS to locate the closest location available. Once the Motel 6 location is identified, the Motel 6 App provides guests with the most pertinent details for their visit, including each location's amenities, brand policies, property images and daily rates. Locations are also searchable using an airport code, city or state.

Registered members can take advantage of the "My Motel 6" feature, where their account information and upcoming reservations are conveniently available for viewing. First-time guests can create an online account in just a few easy steps.


The Motel 6 App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/apps/motel6.
