Development Opportunities

Seeking hotel Franchise partners.
Be part of the Microtel and ECHO Canadian expansion.

A more comfortable, more rewarding approach to hotel construction, operations and ownership

Seeking the most hotel for the smallest investment? Backed by the hands-on guidance to support your success every step of the way? You’ve arrived at your destination. MasterBUILT Hotels holds the Canadian rights for Microtel® Inns & Suites by Wyndham and ECHOSM Suites Extended Stay.

There are immense opportunities for hotel development partners seeking a value-focused hotel brand in the midst of an ambitious Canada-wide expansion. This includes developers, landowners and franchise partners.

Why Microtel?

Microtel’s next-generation modular design represents the next step for the midscale hotel brand that rivals upper-midscale properties in guest satisfaction, and Revenue per Available Room (RevPAR).

Efficient design. Exceptional value.

With a new streamlined design, Microtel is the lowest cost, highest quality mid-scale hotel on the market. The floorplan has been strategically devised to optimize construction efficiencies. Microtel’s 1.4-acre footprint opens the doors to real estate and development opportunities in coveted locations. Including those where space is a premium. With a franchise investment starting at $19 – 20 Million (CAD), Microtel offers the lowest cost of entry within its category.

Canada’s highest ranking hotel guest experience

Few hotels mirror the combination of quality, value, amenities and service that guests have come to expect at Microtel.

Since 2002 Microtel has ranked “Highest in Guest Satisfaction Among Midscale Hotels” in Canada a record 16 out of 18 years. In fact, Canadian Microtels managed by MasterBUILT consistently achieve “Best of Microtel” award for top performance ratings world-wide
(among 360+ hotels).


Guest demand for extended-stay properties has skyrocketed. In Canada, this is being fueled by business travel, the growing need in transitional housing… and the well-publicized housing shortage in many communities.

In Canada, there are very few hotel chains offering a dedicated extended stay product (6 months to 1-year).

In 2022, Wyndham launched its latest built-to-purpose, new construction ECHO Suites Extended Stay property: franchising 200 US locations in the first year alone… with the first two nearing completion.

ECHO Suites are available for investment across Canada, through MasterBUILT.

Ultra efficient design. Attractive ROI

At a time when rising construction costs are driving the need for ultra-efficiency, Wyndham’s prototypes prioritize owner return on investment with an emphasis on value engineering and streamlined operations, helping optimize operating margins on a recurring basis.

With an attractive franchise investment, ECHO Suites fills a huge need in the market, with operational costs significantly lower than most hotels.
