AmericInn International, LLC is today releasing the second podcast in a series of four on the challenges facing franchise owners in today's economic environment. Topics for the podcasts include financing, operating and building costs, location scouting, marketing plans and the importance of branding, offering insight and advice on how to make your hotel franchise a success. The podcast to be released today, The Cost of Building and Operating a Hotel Today, outlines the upfront costs required to build an AmericInn hotel and the ongoing operational expenses associated with the hotel franchise.

"AmericInn offers one of the best values in the industry," states Jon Kennedy, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. "We have spent a great deal of time and effort designing our two basic prototypes that allow us to control and maximize the per unit return on our hotels." Kennedy continued, "It takes real money to build a hotel and in today's economic climate, people are going to be even more careful with their investments. We feel it's important to be upfront and clear about what kind of financial commitment people can expect from an AmericInn hotel franchise."

The two basic AmericInn hotel franchise prototypes, Ambient and Metropolitan, offer some flexibility in design while following unique footprints to control the per-unit cost and maximize the return on investment. AmericInn hotel franchises feature uniform architecture, including a vaulted lobby with fireplace, drive under canopy and prominent recreational pool area. What varies the most between hotels is the number of units and the room types. AmericInn hotels are known for their constructional integrity offering guests a quiet night's rest with the AmericInn SoundGuardTM construction.

The second podcast in the four part series titled, The Cost of Building and Operating a Hotel Today, will air on and today, July 7th, with the following podcasts scheduled to air at a rate of one per month. The podcast series will also be available for play back on the AmericInn Franchise site, For more information about AmericInn hotel franchise opportunities, visit or call 1- 866-337-6082.
