 Short-term Contracts, Low, Flat Fees, and No Liquidated Damages
Provides Americas Best Value Inn Plenty of Growth

(Cleveland, OH) August 22, 2007 – In just eight years of operation, Americas Best Value Inn has transformed from an innovative concept to the fastest growing hotel chain in America and is on track to do something no one else in the industry has done – reach 800 properties within the brand’s eighth year.

“I have no intention of slowing down,” said Roger Bloss, CEO and President of Americas Best Value Inn. “We will continue this momentum as long as there are hotel owners who need and want an affordable alternative to hotel brand affiliation.” 

With 752 properties in its system at the end of July, Bloss credits the brand’s unprecedented growth to the unique member model he developed that provides hotel owners with short-term contracts; low, flat fees; a voice and a vote in the brand’s direction; and no liquidated damages. 

“Other brands have certainly tried to imitate our model, but none have achieved the level of success that Americas Best Value Inn has attained because they don’t have our level of comprehensive resources and development tools to support their property owners,” said Patrick Mullinix, VP of Development. 

SPIN, an acronym for Sales Presentation Internet News, is Americas Best Value Inn’s newest addition to its innovative development program.  Offered through the brand’s website,, those interested in learning more about the hotel chain can participate in live, weekly webcasts presented by Roger Bloss, the brand’s CEO, Founder, and President. The live webcast takes place every Wednesday at 1:00 pm EST.  

“SPIN is like taking a test drive without the high pressure salesman,” said Bloss. “If hotel owners are interested in changing their hotel affiliations, they are going to do in-depth comparative shopping of several different brands. Our SPIN webcast is a very informal yet comprehensive way to learn about Americas Best Value Inn’s services, resources, programs, and fees.  Once you compare us with other hotel brands, you’ll quickly realize that our ROI is unparalleled in the industry and that we are truly the most affordable alternative in national brand affiliation.”

“I encourage people to ask me tough questions during the presentation. In fact, I tell them to go ahead and kick the tires, sit in the driver’s seat, and see if our affiliation model is right for you,” concluded Bloss.

Vice President of Development for Americas Best Value Inn, Patrick Mullinix, spearheaded the development of SPIN.  “I was in the franchise world for many years and I never liked the high-pressure sales techniques that many chains employ,” said Mullinix.  “Through Vantage Hospitality and Americas Best Value Inn, Roger Bloss has created a culture of open access.   We have no hidden agendas, no hidden fees.  All of our forms and documents are available for viewing and downloading online and we encourage anyone interested in changing hotel brands to talk with Roger during a SPIN webcast or contact us directly.”
