Our Company Culture is 40 years young!
We invented budget lodging and have become the most recognized trademark in the travel industry. We’ve been successfully attracting customers and employees since 1962. Our goal is to keep our successful ways in the following areas, as we change to meet the challenges of the future.
Success Means Putting People First
We realize that having the right people is very important in producing our product — well managed properties with satisfied customers. Therefore, our goal is to provide an environment that attracts, develops and retains talented self-starters who want to be part of a leading organization in budget lodging. We strive to maintain a culture that treats employees with respect and appreciation for their contributions. The company is also committed to long-standing values including: customer service, teamwork, diversity, recognition, communications, ethical behavior and opportunity for growth and development.
Quality Pays! For both employees and the company
Achieving quality is an on-going process that the whole company is firmly committed to. The cornerstone of our quality process is the creation and nurturing of a “Culture of Customer Service.” In fact, exceptional customer service is important to our business, because we believe that a warm and cordial reception of the guest is the key to hospitality. Providing that to every guest is our most important mission.
We’re proud to be a Pacesetter
We’re growing. We’re innovating. We’re a special team. We believe in reward and recognition. Did you know that our company is one of only a handful of companies in the hospitality industry that offers all employees a benefit package. We were also among the first in the industry to create the opportunity for all property level employees to earn cash bonus incentives. We’re proud of our success and progress, but we’re not finished yet!
