Ready to Relocate? 5 motels for sale right now.
Motel for sale in Tasmania

If you want to be your own boss, live close to where you work, and host guests, then perhaps owning a motel could be your ticket to success!

With over 660 accommodation and tourism businesses for sale in Australia on Bsale, motels for sale account for almost 200 listings. Buying a motel gives you a great opportunity to enter the tourism industry or to expand your current portfolio. 

When buying a motel you may be purchasing the business as a leasehold or freehold. The asking price of the business will obviously be influenced if it is a freehold sale and includes the purchase of the land and premises. This is why you will see motels for sale from $300,000 to $10,000,000 plus. Both options have their own advantages, it depends on what you are looking for and your budget.

There is no denying that owning a motel has its own lifestyle and work benefits that rival many businesses. There is a lot of appeal in owning a motel business and becoming a hotelier, or a motelier. 

We take a look at 5 motels that are currently for sale across Australia from Tasmania to Queensland and New South Wales to Western Australia!
