New data reveals hotels are the preferred lodging option this summer; cost/budget will have an impact on travel plans

Dallas, May 15, 2024 – Summer travel is about to heat up, and new data from leading economy lodging brands Motel 6 and Studio 6 reveals that nearly eight in 10 Americans who will drive to their summer travel destination said that driving makes the experience more enjoyable (77%).

The study, which surveyed 2,000 Americans with summer leisure plans, also found that travelers agree there is a distinction between a “trip” and a “vacation” (80%).

“There’s nothing better than cruising on the highway with the windows down, sun shining and music playing, especially when you’re surrounded by your loved ones – even those on four legs,” said Julie Arrowsmith, President and CEO of G6 Hospitality, parent company of Motel 6 and Studio 6. “Whether you’re the planner or just along for the ride, Motel 6 and Studio 6 provide pet-friendly and affordable lodging so you can relax, enjoy the journey and focus on creating memories.”

Are We There Yet?

Methods of transportation are varied this summer; most intend to drive to at least one destination (60%), while ot

hers will fly (55%) or ride the train (8%). On the road, many admit to taking on classic roles such as the “relaxation reminder” (23

%), “trip coordinator” (28%), “activities and excursion guide” (22%) and “backseat driver” (10%). Although the journey to the vacation can be its own adventure, arriving at the hotel or destination is the top indicator to travelers that they are officially on vacation (59%).

Keeping It Budget-Friendly

Almost nine in 10 (87%) of those with summer leisure plans say that cost and budget will impact their travel. This may also be why discount programs while traveling are more important now than in previous years (79%, an increase of 13% since 2023). Through My6, the free discount program from Motel 6 and Studio 6, travelers can enjoy a minimum of 6% off ev

ery stay, as well as hundreds of added benefits in the travel, streaming and food industries.

For the over one-third (34%) of those driving to their summer destinations to save money, travelers can also receive exclusive access to promotions on car care to help get their vehicles road-trip-ready with My6. With Memorial Day Weekend and Fourth of July just around the corner, My6 members can save between May 25 – July 28, 2024, 12% off the Best Available Rates on reservations booked between May 24 – May 28, 2024*. Sign up to save via the app or website.

Lodging Tendencies

With a variety of lodging options to choose from, most will stay at a hotel (61%), followed by rental homes (27%) and staying at a family member’s home (22%). When staying in a hotel, most travelers admit to not unpacking and keeping their items in their luggage (57%), though many still use the dresser (34%) or closet (47%).

Trip or Vacation?

Vacations look different for everyone, and over half (53%) defined “vacation” as travel for relaxation. Others feel that a “trip” is defined as travel for a purpose (32%), such as an event, or as simply getting out of their hometown (30%). Travelers are looking to relax and unplug this summer (59%), so it’s no surprise that nearly half will attend a family or friend reunion (48%), and over one-third will explore a new city (36%). When considering the timing of their adventure, only 9% believe holiday weekends are the ideal time to travel, while over two-fifths (43%) enjoy a mix of holiday and off-holiday weekends.

A complete list of survey results can be found here. To book a stay at one of the nearly 1,500 Motel 6 or Studio 6 properties across the U.S. and Canada, visit www.motel6.com or www.studio6.com.

*My6 members must book reservations between May 24 – May 28, 2024, and at least one day in advance to receive a discount. Non-members who book within the sale window and at least one day in advance will receive 10% off the Best Available Rate.

84% will travel for holidays, according to new data from Motel 6

 

DALLAS, NOVEMBER 1, 2023 – This festive season is sure to be a big one, as new data from leading economy lodging brand Motel 6 reveals that Americans who are celebrating a winter holiday are planning to enjoy an average of 10 or more gatherings this year.

 

In its sixth annual holiday travel survey, Motel 6 heard from over 2,000 respondents who celebrate a winter holiday and found that this flurry of festivities is expected to lead to significant travel. Eighty-four percent of respondents plan to travel to at least one gathering, and of those, over half (52%) expect to take more trips than last year.

 

Travel Trends Fur the Whole Family

This holiday season, 85% say the joy of spending time with friends and family outweighs the challenges of travel. When it comes to lodging, two-thirds (65%) of respondents traveling plan to stay at a hotel, an increase of nearly 20% since last year (SWNS 2022). And they’re bringing furry family members with them. Three out of five (60%) respondents note that pets will be joining their holiday journeys, up from 22% in 2022 (SWNS 2022).

 

Gathering once just isn’t enough – respondents plan to celebrate some holidays multiple times, bringing the average number of holiday gatherings per person to more than 10.

 

Family Time Important, but so is Moderation

The winter season continues to be a time to come together with loved ones, with two-thirds (66%) of respondents noting a preference for a traditional holiday celebration with family, while only 20% opt to take a solo trip. Still, Americans agree that the excitement of family gatherings can cause social batteries to run down quickly. Over half (53%) of respondents look forward to alone time four hours into a holiday, while nearly one in five (19%) say it takes just one to two hours for them to start looking forward to alone time.

 

“The final months of the year are filled with love, excitement and festivities with friends and family. No matter where the road takes you this season, Motel 6 will be there as your resting place,” said Julie Arrowsmith, President and CEO of G6 Hospitality, parent company of Motel 6 and extended stay brand Studio 6. “From Friendsgiving to New Year’s Day, we are here to offer affordable rates and discounts on our My6 app so you can focus on making memories with loved ones, including those with four legs!”

 

Impact of Economic Climate

It’s no surprise that nearly all (82%) of those celebrating winter holidays say the economic climate is impacting their plans this year. More than half are hoping to receive experience-based gifts (56%) this year, such as travel, and will be opting for affordable lodging (55%) for their journeys.

 

Those looking to save this holiday season can enjoy exclusive promotions and discounts while saving at least 6% off their stay by joining My6, a free rewards program from Motel 6 and Studio 6. To sign up, download the free My6 app or visit the website.
