Motel 6 adopts Google Wallet payment functionality

Motel 6 launches a streamlined booking experience with Google Wallet, allowing customers to pay for their stay using the Buy with Google button. Motel 6 integrated Google Wallet within its mobile website so guests can now book their hotel stay with just a few touches.

"We're committed to offering travelers an increasingly efficient digital booking experience that leverages the latest advances in digital technology,” said Lance Miceli, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Motel 6. “Google Wallet allows our guests to book a stay with fewer touches, avoiding the need to fill out payment information manually."

Google Wallet, an application that securely stores customer's credit card information, provides a fast and easy way for people to book a reservation. After selecting the Motel 6 location within the Motel 6 mobile website, travelers can complete their reservation using the "Buy with Google" button. For guests who don't have a Google Wallet account, information is saved securely the first time they make a reservation through this method of payment.
