About Us

A-1 Hospitality was formed in 1997 by Vijay & Mita Patel. Our first hotel was the Longhorn Motel in Pendleton, OR, which was quickly remodeled into Travelodge. Since the formation of the company we have slowly added quality hotels to our Portfolio…hotels of which can provide the highest levels of Customer Service and Quality by delivering innovative products, services and Brand Standards.

The core of our success is our Family of Employees. Each hotel team is comprised of a family which strives to welcome each guest to their “home away from home,” providing them with the greatest level of customer service and a comfortable, clean room with modern amenities.

Today A-1 Hospitality’s Portfolio features 5 hotels with 337 guestrooms in Oregon and Washington State. Currently our hotels include:

Holiday Inn Express
Holiday Inn Express & Suites
