For an unprecedented sixth consecutive year, Microtel Inn & Suites has been ranked highest in guest satisfaction among economy/budget hotel chains. This ranking was the conclusion of 2007 study by J. D. Power and Associates. Microtel is the only brand in the hotel industry to have received this recognition six successive times.

Microtel scored highest in six out of seven key guest measures including reservation, check in/check out, guestroom, hotel services, hotel facilities and cost/fees.  

“We are extremely honored to receive this recognition for the sixth consecutive year,” said Roy E. Flora, Chief Operating Officer of Microtel’s franchising parent company.  “This recognition emphasizes the importance of consistently delivering the highest quality product, service and value to our guests.”

Currently there are more than 300 Microtel Inn & Suites across the nation with more under construction. Each hotel provides free local and long distance telephone calls, free high speed Internet access and a free continental breakfast. In addition, frequent guests receive one free night’s lodging for every nine stays.
