Another Budgie Brand Gets a New Look: Sleep Inns

May 5, 2010 at 3:01 PM | by | ()

When staying at a hotel with the name Sleep Inn and Suites, you would expect to get some decent sleep there right? Well, parent company Choice Hotels is making absolutely certain that their budget brand is snooze-worthy by announcing a full design of Sleep Inn hotels.

The design highlights include:

· New lobby designs with warm, natural finishes, unique lighting features, and graphic accent walls.
· Guestrooms redesigned with accent walls, new media boards with flat screen TVs, sleek new furniture lines, leaning mirrors, striking zebra-patterned wood finishes, innovative bedding coverlets plus bedscarfs, and eye-catching collages of black and white photography.
· Spa-like baths feature chic freestanding vanities, modern wall sconces, accent walls, frameless glass showers, and bamboo-like tiles.
· Redesigned exterior with natural stone finishes, feature lighting, an enhanced tower feature, low roof profile and broad overhangs.

But never fear, the Free WiFi and Free Breakfast will remain!

Sleep Inn now joins other budget brands who have fixed themselves up recently, like Holiday Inn, Motel 6 and Red Roof Inns. Currently, the new design can be found at the Sleep Inn & Suites hotel of Rogers, Minnesota (where the pics are from), the Sleep Inn and Suites in Round Rock, Texas and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

But your best bet for sleeping in these new fresh rooms is to stay in a newly built Sleep Inn hotel. Choice does have a plan in place for existing hotels to renovate but those will be rolled out at the hotel owner's discretion. Rates at Sleep Inn are typically well under $100.

Budget Hotels are the Best

When I travel anymore for business, the budget hotels are always my first pick.  The quality has gotten WAY better and the prices are great.  For family vacations, though, we tend to stick with the "feature" hotels or the ones that are most conveniently located.
