What Do Hotel Guests Value Most | Affordable Hotel Blog

Value Place Hotel Double Bedroom

Hard wood floors help to keep a hotel room clean at Value Place Hotel.

It’s cleanliness, according to a survey of 1,000 people released by the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies in 2011. A whopping 43% chose that, meaning that a dirty bathroom, dust and maybe bedbugs are more pressing concerns than price (23%) and location (19%). The survey was conducted by CARAVAN ORC International, an independent public opinion and market research firm, this month.

I am surprised that security (11%) ranked so low. As a female who often travels alone, that’s really important to me. The other 6% of participants didn’t choose any of the options or didn’t care, meaning that some may rank free Wi-Fi or breakfast No. 1 (as I suspect some Hotel Check-In readers would do).

5 Rewarding Things You Can Do With Free Wi-Fi at Value Place Extended Stay Hotel

Free Wi-Fi At Participating Value Place Locations!

Right now, our 10 Value Place locations are giving away FREE Wi-Fi  for a week to anybody who follows them on Twitter or Likes any one of their 10 Facebook pages (see the About section for the list). I thought to myself, “Why not do a blog about a handful of rich and rewarding activities you can do with FREE Wi-Fi.” Interestingly enough, whatever you can do with free Wi-Fi, you can do with paid Wi-Fi. But for the sake of this article, we will be looking at 5 things you can do with FREE Wi-Fi.

1. Video chat with your family. A lot of our guests are working away from home. Free Wi-Fi will aid in palliating the distance. Use Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangout, etc to see the faces of your beautiful wife, husband and children.

2. Work. Get ahead on the projects you are working on by conducting some research or shooting off some e-mails that will give you an edge the following day. Who knows, you may even get a bonus for it.

3. Read interesting articles at www.BuzzFeed.com. BuzzFeed publishes the most viral content on the internet, guaranteed to make you chuckle.

4. Write a review for your Value Place hotel at TripAdvisor.com. For us, getting a good review is like being handed a chocolate-dipped, soft ice cream cone. 

5. Read the news. Catch up on current events through your favorite magazine’s website. Forbes is a good one.

So if you find yourself with FREE Wi-Fi at your local Value Place Extended Stay Hotel, by all means, you have many rewarding activities to choose from. To get your FREE Wi-Fi, follow us on Twitter to the right (@ValuePlaceHotel) or find your Value Place location’s Facebook Page and click “Like”. Your name will be recorded on a list of guests receiving FREE Wi-Fi. Offer ends 7-8-13.

6 Benefits of Having a Kitchen in Your Hotel

Value Place Hotel Kitchenette

All Value Place Rooms Are Outfitted with a BIG Kitchenette.

When guests travel on a budget, food and drinks are a serious line item that swells the bottom line. Paying for a place to stay can sometimes be a cheaper expense than taking the family out for meals every day. At the Value Place Hotels in Johnson City, TN, Columbia, SC (Elgin), Columbia, SC (Lexington), Macon, GA (West), Macon, GA (North), Evansville, IN, Duncan, SC, Greenville (Chalmers Road), SC, Greenville (Simpsonville), SC and Champaign, IL, there are full kitchenettes equipped with a stove, stove fan, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, sink, outlets and linens. Dishes can be purchased in-house as well as your own coffee-maker (of course, they are yours to take with you when you leave). This special functionality differentiates Value Place Hotel from other hotels, especially when you are paying $29/night (average weekly rate broken down into nightly).

6 Benefits to Staying at a Hotel with a Kitchen:

1. Eat breakfast when you want. No window of time that closes at early hours of the day.

2. Save money on meals. Grocery stores prices and no tip. Unless you want to tip yourself.

3. Don’t totally blow your diet. Save money with fast food but at the cost of your diet.

4. Control what you eat. Eat exactly what you want, how you want.

5. Enjoy your privacy. No loud restaurants or busy streets.

6. Cook a meal together. It’s a great bonding activity.

In the end, a kitchenette in a hotel is a HUGE money saver and gives you a lot more control and enjoyment during your travel visit.
