I doubt Motel 6 is priced below sustainable levels, or they'd have gone
under long ago.  I suspect part of the difference, though, is that
people staying at Motel 6 are probably on their own dime and care about
the price.  People staying at a fancier hotel are probably staying at
their employer's expense.
