Hendersonville, TN and Fargo, ND – December 20, 2004 - InnLink announces the signing of Select Franchising, Inc. for electronic reservation services.

InnLink’s branded booking engine, iLINK, along with electronic connectivity to travel agents and travel websites, eLINK, is helping to make that vision a reality. 

“Online booking of motel reservations by the general public on the internet is becoming more popular, InnLink simplifies the procedure,” says Select Inn President Nick Klaers.

“InnLink is a leader in providing electronic distribution services needed by our hotels to maximize their exposure in the electronic marketplace.  InnLink provides our franchisees independent control to strategically compete in their markets.  The positive feedback from guests and franchisees confirms InnLink is the right partner for Select Inns”, says co-owner Marie Casper.

InnLink President Michael Young says, “We’re proud to partner with Select Inn, a highly-successful hotel chain with a dedication for accommodating guests before and after they check in. Our goal at InnLink is to provide Select Inn with both reservations and satisfied guests.”

InnLink, based in Hendersonville, TN, provides an array of reservation, marketing, and revenue generation programs to hotels and hotel companies.  Select Inn has chosen eLINK, InnLink’s electronic reservation services which provide connectivity to travel agents and travel websites as well as iLINK, InnLink’s booking engine for the internet.
