What are some of the key selling features of the Good Nite Inn Hotels?

Most of our hotels are truly spacious by today’s standards. Our rooms are characterized by their residential ambiance. They feature a king or two queen beds, high speed internet, and complimentary coffee/tea in the lobby.


What will clients experience at your hotel?
At Good Nite Inns, our guests will enjoy a relaxed atmosphere with a gracious staff that is ready to deliver the Spirit of Hospitality. Most of our properties offer a pool and our guests can enjoy Wi-Fi internet service, maid service, and more. 


What activities and popular locations are nearby for clients to enjoy?
Most of our properties are situated a short distance from California’s top tourist attractions, activities and landmarks in California. Our visitors have the freedom to travel to and explore this rich and beautiful land and culture. 

Whether our guests are in the mood for shopping, dining, or nightlife, our hotels are conveniently located near major outlet malls, and dining options. There are also some seasonal Tours and activities throughout the major California destinations, during the summer.

Is there any advantage to staying at your hotel rather than other ones in the area?
Certainly, the Good Nite Inns are generally considered the best price/value hotels among their direct competition in our markets. Most of our properties are near the convention centers, major universities, museums or major hospitals.

In addition to our great locations and services, our rates are always competitive and offer great value. For example our Fall Special Promo offers 30% off the published rates includes a Continental Breakfast per person. 


Why should Travel Agents book the Good Nite Inns for their clients?
Our properties offer the best value for the price conscious minded travelers. Our team members take pride in delivering service beyond expectation, so our guests will have a good experience and come again. We design our seasonal promotions to benefit both the traveler and the travel agents such as our current Fall Promo Rates and Value promotion. 


Do you have any current promotions you would like to share with Travel Agents?
Besides the convenient locations and truly spacious accommodations for our guests, we pay 15% commission to all Travel Agents in a timely and accurate system on these bookings rather than the standard 10%. 

Yes, it truly is a great opportunity currently and Good Nite Inns are doing their part to promote travel by offering ‘Unbeatable Price/Value’ and commissionable offers that our travel professional partners can promote to their customers. 


Our Holiday Shopping/Fall Promo Rate and Value is valid for all new bookings now through Jan 15, 2010. For the guest, this promotion includes 30% off the regular published rates.
