The Microtel Inns & Suites is a brand of franchise hotels that has locations in Canada, Argentina, Mexico, the Philippines, and the United States. The first Microtel location opened its doors in 1989 in suburban Rochester, NY. The franchise chain has grown to over three hundred locations around the world.
On July 21, 2008, Wyndham Hotel Group bought Microtel Inns & Suites from then owner US Franchise Systems, Inc. US Franchise Systems had previously sold the America’s Best Inn chain to the Country Hearth Inns chain in 2005. That holding company is now known as America’s Best Franchising Inc. In 2012, Microtel’s logo was changed to the same logo style of Wingate, and Hawthorn Suites, which are both owned by Wyndham Hotel Group.
In 2014, Microtel by Wyndham received three Certificates of Excellence for its hotels in Davao, Baguio, and Puerto Princesa during the first quarter. These three hotels were rated as some of the best hotels to stay at in the world by satisfied guests. These awards that honor excellence within the hospitality industry are given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor, which is the world’s largest travel site.
