My Place Hotel — Lubbock, TX, a locally owned and operated franchise of My Place Hotels of America, continues its effort to help local healthcare heroes.
“The outpouring of support from the Lubbock community and beyond has been very humbling,” co-owner Kevin Nelson said. “We never imagined there would be such a need and we’re doing everything we can to make sure as many of the heroes who need a safe place to stay have it.”
Since first rolling out an initiative to provide free and discounted rooms to the area’s healthcare community, the hotel has provided 182 free room nights to healthcare professionals.
“We’re actually going to be able to provide an additional 62 room nights thanks to a very generous donation that we’ve received,” Nelson added. “It’s just another example of our community stepping up and helping those in need.”
My Place Hotels are uniquely built to provide clean, safe rooms to its guests. Every room has a kitchen complete with a cooktop, microwave, full-size fridge, and coffee maker. The hotel has also put in extra precautions to ensure that all guests are safe.
“We’ve even had some local businesses like Waypoint Foodservice & Commercial Solutions and our local Coca-Cola folks bring some goodie bags by,” Nelson added. “All of the healthcare professionals have been so appreciative, we just hope they know how grateful we are for what they’re doing…they are the true heroes.”
