Starting a Motel Business

  • 2 expert advise

Perhaps you are itching to start your own motel business, but you have no idea what to prepare and what to accomplish first before gaining that goal. With this article, you will no longer need to wonder and instead you can start getting your motel business up and running in no time.

Learn here how to start a mote business.

Do you love to take care of other people’s needs especially their accommodations away from home? Do you love to entertain travelers and provide them with shelter after a long day on the road? Then a motel business is the ideal enterprise for you. Here are the things that you will need to prepare if you plan to start your own motel business.

An Ideal Location for a Motel

Motels need to be placed in a location that motorists can pass by conveniently. That is why they are called motels, short for “motor hotels.” Unlike a full-sized motel, motorists that use your lodging expect to park their vehicles right outside your building. They expect to have easy access to their vehicles, something that also differentiates hotels from motels.

Friendly Staff

The staff is what makes a motel famous. You need to have friendly and accommodating staff that has the ability to make your guests feel right at home the moment they enter your establishment. You don’t need to have an elaborate lobby, just a simple receiving area is enough for your front desk. However, you should have friendly staff manning the front desk and greeting your visitors.

Amenities for a Motel Business

Despite being smaller than hotels, your motel should be in no way inferior when it comes to your amenities. You will need excellent beds and beddings for the comfort of your guests. The furniture in your receiving area should be attractive and pleasing to the eyes, as well as comfortable. Each room should have their own televisions as well, as visitors would want to just relax inside their rooms and watch their favorite shows. You can choose to have a dining area and even your own buffet service if you can afford it. It is not compulsory, however, as most motel-goers prefer to eat outside. Other amenities would include free Internet access, both landline-based and wireless.

Acquiring a Business or Start Your Own?

Another way to starting your business is to acquire an existing motel and assume its management. The advantage to acquiring is that they already have an existing system and establishment, which will eliminate the need to construct a motel and fill it with amenities and equipment. You would need to consult the services of a broker for this, as they have extensive contacts and information on available businesses.

Whatever your decision, you would need to secure financing for your venture. The easiest and fastest way to get approved for a business loan is to prepare a business plan. A business plan gives lenders the security that they are seeking for, an assurance that you will pay back the money you have borrowed.

    Hi my name is Lani and i am looking for new and effective marketing ideas for the company i am working with. Kangaroo Motel is located in Port Moresby, the capital city of Papua New Guinea. It has been taken over by new management (us) and we are trying to make known to all in town that this is so. You see the previous managers didn't manage the place properly hence it being sold and the motel isn't situated in a good area (safe area). But with the current developments of starting up a security firm as well and having the security base on premises we are hoping that people will change their minds about this place. Also the motel had a bad name in with past management as a place where their were prostitutes readily available and under the new management, we are trying to clean the place up. Please assist.
