Breaking news from USA Today: Motel 6 is going upscale.
"Gone will be the busy, vividly colored bedspread," USA Today reports. "Bedding in
sophisticated tones such as cinnamon or olive will complement an accent
wall (see image). In the new bathroom, a white vessel sink will set atop black
granite. Room carpets will be replaced by wood-look flooring, and new,
contemporary furnishings will resemble something from the pages of a
West Elm or IKEA catalog."
Here's the best news: "Despite looking more upscale, Motel 6 will continue its low-rate strategy; cost of an average room last year was $45.26," says USA Today. That's pretty compelling, given that some hotels charge nearly half that much just for Wi-Fi access.
The revamped Motel 6 could be an ideal place for some shut-eye on the road--particularly if the economy keeps you awake at night.
