To mark the unofficial start of the family vacation season, Motel 6 has created a new webiste,, where master trip planner mom can plan “one-tank trips” that include visiting America’s national parks.  According to a recent Marketing Daily article, “The Motel 6 National Parks Tour”, which was posted last week, features some of the most magnificent and family-friendly national parks in the Western U.S.”  The site allows families to map out their travel plans and includes special “activities in and just ouside each of these parks.”  Jeff Palmer, SVP/sales and marketing for Motel 6 stated in the article, “Travelers can save big on their lodging costs—usually as much as $40 to $60 per night.  These savings can buy a few more tanks of gas and make that summer vacation last just a bit longer.”
