Motel 6 receives national honor

A motel chain with a local franchise received a prestigious honor.


Motel 6 was recently named the Best Budget-Friendly Brand by USA Today readers, as part of the USA Today 10Best Readers Choice Awards for 2024.  


Motel 6 was lauded as friendly, dependable and affordable for those seeking lodging for business or leisure travel.


"We're thankful to the readers of 10Best and USA Today for voting us Best Budget-Friendly Brand," noted July Arrowsmith, President and CEO of G6 Hospitality, the parent company of Motel 6. "Motel 6 is an iconic brand, with a passion for serving the budget-conscious traveler. We keep things simple by giving guests just what they want."


Locally, a Motel 6 franchise is located on West Main Street, near Branson's downtown area. Lori Houle has served as manager of the location for nearly six years.


"When our owners purchased this property, it was Good Shepherd Inn and was largely an extended-stay motel," Houle explained. "We worked hard to get things cleaned up and remodeled. We were even honored to receive the Chamber of Commerce's Beautification Award. We then joined the Motel 6 franchise. I'm so proud of what we have accomplished here, especially based on where we started. We have many repeat guests now who stay with us every time they come to Branson. They know we offer clean and comfortable rooms at affordable prices."


Houle continued, "I am so proud of our team for keeping our rooms clean and providing excellent customer service. They work hard, do a great job, and they take pride in their work and our Motel 6."


Jenn, one of the Motel 6 'Clean Team' said, "We have some amazing guests, and I enjoy getting to know them. I also enjoy knowing that they will have a great stay in the clean room that we provide for each guest."


Toni, another 'Clean Team' member added, "At Motel 6, we are like family. The guests are like family to us, too. We take pride in offering them clean rooms and friendly service." 


Said Houle, "Since 1962, Motel 6 has been known as a place to find a clean and comfortable room at an affordable price. We are pleased that our guests know this. We encourage them to spread the word about our property and tell their friends and family to stay with us the next time they visit Branson."


Motel 6 is located at 1023 West Main Street, across from Godfather's Pizza in Branson.
