Get the facts about AmericInn


The AmericInn® Lodging System is one of the fastest growing limited service lodging chains. The success and solid growth of the AmericInn chain is due to our commitment of service to our guests. AmericInn competes across the mid-scale without food and beverage segment and is dedicated to providing the best lodging value for its guests.


AmericInn properties were first opened in the early 1980’s and the franchise was formally organized in 1984. In the early 1990’s AmericInn expanded outside of Minnesota and into Wisconsin. In 1993 the AmericInn franchise was purchased and re-organized to become AmericInn International, LLC owned by Northcott Hospitality International, LLC — a Minnesota based company with headquarters in the Twin Cities suburb of Chanhassen. Northcott Hospitality International, LLC is a privately owned hospitality company with more than 30 years of franchised hospitality management experience. Northcott Hospitality International, LLC maintains a superior reputation for excellent service in the lodging and restaurant industries.

At the time Northcott Hospitality International, LLC purchased the AmericInn franchise there were 22 AmericInn locations. Currently, AmericInn has over 240 locations open or under development.


AmericInn lodging properties are popular with today’s business and leisure travelers because we welcome our guests to clean, comfortable, spacious, public areas and guest rooms, while providing friendly, caring service. 

Amenities include a spacious recreation area with pool and hot tub — some with optional Splash Bay Adventure® family fun centers which includes a 100+ foot waterslide. Oversized guest rooms and signature suites provide a quality lodging experience with all the comforts of home. A cozy lobby welcomes guests in, with a conversation area where they can relax and recharge. The morning offers a free, hot, home-style AmericInn Perk breakfast including, hot waffles and a specialty blend of premium coffee. AmericInn combines these features with a helpful, efficient staff and a price that adds up to the finest lodging value in the hospitality industry.
