Motel Development in Nigeria: A Case Study of Nigeria and New Zealand Motel Construction Building

Motel is considered to be the most important branch of tourism and the most significant type of accommodation because of its ability to provide revenue and satisfy the needs of the guests. Motels are usually located in road side areas, and they cater for tourists and vacationers. Motels provide all motel services plus recreational and other activities. The provision and improvement of good road network, mass transit system and signposting obviously aid accessibility and accommodation of visitors and tourist can effectively enhance the advantage of increased level of visitors by channeling tourist to those areas that can best accommodate them. Innovation raises attention, helps positioning, brand recognition and differentiation. The building should be designed to be a viable and flexible one; it should reflect an atmosphere that depicts beauty, comfort, accommodation and relaxation. This research also examines the problems militating against the development of tourism and other factors such as problem of accommodation and publicity. The designs are aimed at harnessing nature and consequently improve productivity and creativity can be achieved through some characteristic features of such building. The facilities, front office procedures, housekeeping service, and room size are important factors contributing to the guest’s perceptions of the motel standards as opposed to the rating of the motel.
