Motel 6 tries an environmentally friendly re-design

Courtesy Motel 6

Motel 6 has redesigned 38 of its properties in the U.S. since March 2008.

The design incorporates greener features such as wood flooring made from unused industry scraps and fluorescent light bulbs in all rooms. Rooms have been upgraded to a 32-inch flat-screen TV and a multimedia panel to plug your MP3 player into.

All new Motel 6 properties will have this new design, and makeovers will be given to the chain's approximately 1,000 other locations.

Newly designed Motel 6 rooms can be found in Dallas, Santa Barbara, Chicago, Las Vegas and a few other cities in the U.S. so far. You'll have to call ahead to see if a property got one of the lucky makeovers.
