Over time, I will be adding valuable content on this site for you to be more informed and help make the running of your motel business more rewarding.

The following is what I plan to provide:

  1. User friendly Forum for members to ask or answer each others questions.
  2. Motel Industry based articles for the motel operator.
  3. Product, Service and Supplier directory.
  4. A place to share photos or videos of before and after shots of anything you like to share.ie. trashed rooms, refurbishments or anything else you think others would be interested in seeing.( Coming Soon)
  5. If you have any ideas of what you would like, let us know by posting in the forum here.or the contact form here.
