    Motel business brings unique challenges and few of them are it would attract drug dealers, prostitution and homeless people and being a national brand it has very competitive room rates and high quality standard.

    Pros

    We are individually owned and I LOVE the owner!!!! He is AWESOME to work for. He never yells or belittles me one bit. When I do make a mistake he just says "it's ok. just try harder next time." I've never enjoyed the owners of the companies I have worked for. Chirag is just AWESOME. I can't imagine working for anyone else.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons.
