No Mr Peterson, I have to disagree with you saying "that the budget end of the market is done". Not all guest want to pay big money for a clean comfy bed. That is all a lot of people look for. Yes there are some that want all the bells and whistles and can afford it, but you still have the pensioner, as opposed to the grey nomads, you still have Mum and Dad the kids traveling to their holiday destination, which is where they spend the big dollar. Or the family that is coming to visit relatives but can't stay at the home.

So yes this is still the need for a budget motel, BUT just because its "budget" doesn't necessarily mean that its the pits!!
