DALLAS, Jan. 17, 2013-- Motel 6 announces the launch of the Motel 6 app for iPad, now available for free download on the App Store. The Motel 6 app, developed especially for the Apple iPad, makes it simple for guests to quickly find and book rooms at more than 1,100 locations in the United States and Canada.
"The launch of the Motel 6 app for iPad is the latest extension of our growing digital/mobile distribution network," said Lance Miceli, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for G6 Hospitality. "Our guests have been greatly receptive to the Motel 6 apps for iPhone, iPod Touch and Android, as well as our booking app on Facebook. We will continue to expand Motel 6's digital reach to be accessible to our guests and potential customers wherever they are."
Thousands of smartphone users use the Motel 6 apps for iPhone, iPod Touch and Android per month to search for Motel 6 locations, view property images and videos, and book their stay. The Motel 6 app for iPad includes the same easy-to-use functionalities but was designed and optimized especially for the Apple iPad.
The app uses the iPad's built-in GPS to locate the closest location available. Once the Motel 6 location is identified, the Motel 6 app provides guests with the most pertinent details for their visit, including each location's amenities, brand policies, property images and daily rates. Guests can also search for locations using an airport code, city or state. Registered members can take advantage of the "My Motel 6" feature, where their account information and upcoming reservations are conveniently available for viewing. First-time guests can create an online account in just a few easy steps. The Motel 6 app is available for free download from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch or at www.itunes.com/apps/motel6.
