Hi Jeff and all,
Absolutely! Microtel is definitely a strong supporter of disc golf. We encourage all tournament directors to use Microtel for host hotels, meeting facilities, etc. However, because they are independently owned, the corporate office is unable to extend discounts nationwide...granted they do offer excellent rates on a given. The page you are referencing was/is a way for Microtel to track the traffic of disc golfers. Due to our business with them, Microtel is a cash sponsor as well as funding the Microtel Disc Golfer of the Week program. We are most grateful to have them on board.
In comparison, LaQuinta is offering discounts to our members as a way to track the traffic. Once they see business from disc golfers they may also want to contribute more, either through cash sponsorships or larger discounts to our members. Wether they do offer more in the future is unknown; however, we sure can enjoy the discounts in the meantime.
Traveling is such a huge expense for ALL skill levels, not just professionals (in reference to Mike's post), so this is a benefit to everyone that travels.
This is high membership season. If you have any concerns/questions please email me at the address below as I may not see a post that requires my attention. Thanks in advance for understanding.
