Airport Travelodge wins award

JUNEAU - The Juneau Airport Travelodge won the Sleepy Bear Honor Roll award from Travelodge Hotels at the hotel chain's conference held May 6-9 in Dallas. The conference was attended by co-owner Jeanie Allison and General Manager Susan Bowman.

The award is given to Travelodge hotels across North America that receive the highest quality assurance ratings and go above and beyond the quality standards required by hotels within the Travelodge chain.

Every Travelodge hotel is inspected at least twice a year by a team of corporate quality assurance inspectors. These unannounced visits result in grades on a 500-point scale that rates the property in operations that may affect customers.
