Canada Motel NEW!
Motel 6 is a privately owned hospitality company with a chain of budget motels in the United States and Canada. Motel 6 also operates Studio 6, a chain of extended-stay hotels. The hotel brand is owned by The Blackstone Group's real estate business. Blackstone purchased the business in 2012 from Accor Hotels, and established G6 Hospitality as the management company for Motel 6 and Studio 6.
Motel 6 was founded in Santa Barbara, California, in 1962, by two local building contractors: William Becker and Paul Greene. The partners developed a plan to build motels with rooms at low cost rates. They decided on a $6 room rate per night (equivalent to $54 in 2021), which would cover building costs, land leases, and janitorial supplies; hence the company name "Motel 6".
Becker and Greene had specialized in building low-cost housing developments, and they wanted to provide an alternative to other major hotel chains, such as Holiday Inn, whose locations were becoming increasingly upscale in quality and price in the 1960s, after starting out with a budget-oriented concept. Becker and Greene spent two years formulating their business model and searched for ways to cut costs as much as possible. During the chain's early years, Motel 6 emphasized itself as a "no-frills" lodging chain with rooms featuring coin-operated black-and-white television receivers instead of the free color televisions found in the more expensive motels, along with functional interior decor, to reduce the time it took to clean the rooms. The first location in Santa Barbara had no restaurant on-site, a notable difference from other hotels of the era. To this day, most motels have no on-site dining, though there is usually a choice of restaurants nearby.
Unlike the majority of hotel chains, Motel 6 directly owns and operates most of its locations. To expand more rapidly outside its traditional Western United States base, the chain started franchising in 1994. Accor management also took over motels that had been franchised by other chains. Motel 6 began to renovate all bedrooms, sold under-performing locations, and upgraded door locks and other security measures. Newer properties, as well as acquisitions, have interior corridors. Its competitors include America's Best Value Inn, Days Inn, Econo Lodge, and Super 8 Motels. In 1999, Motel 6 launched Studio 6 Extended Stay, hotels with suites that are designed for longer stays and feature kitchenettes.
Additionally, Washington state filed a lawsuit in January 2018 against Motel 6 for giving the names of thousands of other motel guests to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. In April 2019, Motel 6 agreed to pay $12 million to settle the lawsuit.
As of August 2022, the most expensive motel in the entire Motel 6 chain was the very first one in Santa Barbara, California. It had charged $6 per night before taxes for a room when it first opened in 1962. Sixty years later, during the late summer of 2022, the first Motel 6 was reportedly charging $426 per night for a room, before taxes.
While the interiors of the fictional motel were filmed on set, the building used to film its exterior is a real place in Ontario, Canada, known as the Hockley Motel. It's set on 6.7 acres in the town of Mono about 50 miles from Toronto and selling for $2 million Canadian dollars, or roughly $1.6 million.
Current owner Jesse Tipping, who serves as the president of a high school basketball prep program in the area, purchased the former motel in 2011 and used it as housing for recruits, he told the Orangeville Banner.

This policy statement will discuss the meaning of "hotel", "motel", "inn", "boarding house", "lodging house" and "other similar premises", in the definition of "residential complex".
The definition of "residential complex" excludes a building, or part thereof, that is a hotel, motel, inn, boarding house, lodging house or other similar premise that provides all or substantially all of its accommodation for periods of less than 60 days. This policy will provide guidelines which make it possible to determine whether the building should be considered an establishment that may be excluded from the definition of residential complex if all or substantially all of its accomodation is for periods of less than 60 days. (These establishments also appear in the definition of residential unit.)
The determination of whether an establishment is a hotel, motel, inn, boarding house, lodging house or other similar premise, should be based on considerations involving all the following guidelines, but not all the guidelines necessarily apply to a given establishment since they may depend on the type of establishment and location of the establishment in question. Where applicable, the conditions described in these guidelines should generally be present throughout the year.
It is generally a requirement in all cases that there be a clear intention to operate the facility as a hotel/lodging or similar establishment. (Note that the requisite intent may not be present where one runs a hotel or similar operation because one is forced into it by circumstances on a temporary basis. See Sample Rulings, Example 3, below.) Where the applicable guidelines and requirement are not present throughout the year in respect of the establishment in question, the establishment may not be a hotel, motel, etc., but rather a residential complex, regardless of the periods of accommodation provided. For example, a person who continually each year rents cottages in the summer on a daily basis in a hotel type operation and long-term during the winter as a rental type operation may in fact be renting residential accommodation in a residential complex throughout the year.
Sgt. Duncan Pound of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police did not release the identity of the woman who checked Ryan Jenkins into a remote motel in British Columbia days before he was found dead there Sunday of an apparent suicide.
