Google Wallet Teams with Motel 6

Weary travelers can now book a room at Motel 6 with the touch of a finger.

With the announcement that Google Wallet has joined with Motel 6, customers can now use their smartphones to book a room and pay for their hotel stay. Google Wallet users link their debit or credit cards to their virtual wallet, where payment information is securely stored for future purchases.

Once people select a Motel 6 location online, they can book a reservation and complete payment by touching the “Buy with Google” button. If folks have not signed up for a Google Wallet account and linked a payment method already, their payment information will be saved for next time.

Motel 6 has a mobile app that customers can download to their smartphones and tablets, making the experience of booking rooms and paying for them completely mobile and streamlined. A family taking a road trip could see a sign for a Motel 6, open up the app on their tablet or phone, make a reservation and pay for it, all before getting to the next exit off the highway.

Lance Miceli, Executive Vice President at Motel 6, said his company is doing everything they can to make booking reservations online easy for customers. “Google Wallet allows our guests to book a stay with fewer touches, avoiding the need to fill out payment information manually,” he said.

There are over 1,100 Motel 6 locations throughout the United States and Canada. Amenities include swimming pools, guest laundry, Wi-Fi, free local calls, cable TV and free coffee each morning.

Motel 6 and Google Wallet apps are both have free, and are available through the iTunes store and Google Play. Motel 6 also offers a booking application exclusive to Facebook, so guests can reserve a room right from their Facebook profile.
