The hospitality industry crashed with the economy. It has not fully recovered, and it probably never will. Franchise Chain motels are a tough thing, the chain sucks off the top, you compete with the little guys. The American owned, owner lives there and does much of the work is still viable. If the owner is talented at fixing and plumbing. (broken toilet seats from the 300+ lb asses and people that can **** a hedge apple). You will have customers that can destroy an anvil with a q tip. Stolen towels, etc, ruined carpet and beds. And BED BUGS. It is a tough industry.
