DENVER, CO – March 24, 2009 – The Sleep Inn & Suites, Minot, ND, has entered into a 5-year agreement with Roomlinx Inc. (OTC: RMLX - News), to provide Roomlinx’ Interactive TV solution in 80 guestrooms. Guests will have instant access to hotel services, movies, international and U.S. television programming, music, local news / weather / business / sports updates, shopping, business productivity tools, concierge assistance, games and more via the in-room television.  Roomlinx has installed 80 of the 176 rooms at the Sleep Inn with a full installation scheduled to be completed by July of 2009.  The 80 installed rooms are live and operating today.

Vance Castleman, owner of the Sleep Inn, stated, “This is the first free-to-guest video on demand system in the United States in a hotel.”  The Roomlinx in-room system provides guests with free, unlimited access to the internet, movies, business tools and more.

“The Roomlinx project management and deployment teams did an excellent job,” said Larry Hatfield, Director of IT.  “Their attention to detail and professionalism was outstanding.” 

Castleman, who has owned and operated several successful hotel ventures, said, “I love the flexibility of the system and the ability to brand it and highlight Sleep Inn features.  The Roomlinx system is dynamic and allows for quick updates to information provided to the guest.” 

Terry Alexander, General Manager, said, “The Roomlinx system is a five star amenity and we are thrilled to provide it to our guests free of charge.  The installation process was also a five star experience.  I love that we have the flexibility to do a phased installation and the business model makes sense for our property.” 

Mike Wasik, CEO of Roomlinx, said, “We are very excited to install the Sleep Inn using our free-to-guest VOD model.  In addition to our flexible business models, another well received feature of our system is the ability to brand it and incorporate property information.  Hotels spend millions of dollars on positive first impressions and now we bring that experience to the guestroom TV.  We believe everyone at the Sleep Inn will be excited by the positive feedback from their guests.” 

Sleep Inn guests can now enjoy HD content on a flat screen TV, internet, music and more, all while being reinforced with the property’s image.  By partnering with Roomlinx - which now serves as a one-stop-shop for high-speed Internet, Free to Guest TV, in-room business services, virtual concierge assistance, and entertainment - a hotel can lower its costs for these products and services by bundling with Roomlinx.
