Budget motel chain offers free long distance, Wi-Fi

A small motel chain named Microtel is trying to change the fact you've never heard of them by offering both free long distance and Wi-Fi, reports the Associated Press. While it may take some time, free hotel/motel broadband is something many analysts believe is inevitable.

Free HBO and continental breakfasts aren't the amenities that have Microtel Inn & Suites guests chattering, sometimes for hours on end.

It's the free, unlimited long distance calls and wireless high-speed Internet service.

The economy-budget motel chain is now offering those services as well as free unlimited local calling in all its guest rooms at its 265 locations nationwide.
