Company Timeline

Economy Hotel, Roswell

Our first acquisition in Atlanta, Georgia. In just a few months, this 127 room property went from being bank owned and out of service to a thriving business.

December 2011

Economy Hotel, Marietta

Business at the Economy Hotel Roswell did so well that, in just a few months, we also acquired Economy Hotel Marietta. This 183 room property offers full kitchenettes and large rooms.

January 2013

Economy Hotel, Airport

Looking to expand into the south of Atlanta market, we acquired the Economy Hotel Airport. What was once an empty property with a 25% occupancy rate is now a fully occupied property with a 90% occupancy rate!

March 2013

Economy Hotel, Glenwood

Our first foray into the Decatur, Georgia market. The Hotel was shut down for two years prior to this acquisition. As of 2018, the property boasts a 90% occupancy rate and employs 12 full time employees.

May 2013

Economy, Residential Division

In 2013 we decided to diversify its product offering to include a residential housing division. Our single family residential homes in the metro Atlanta area offer long term monthly stays. We also offer deep discounts for these homes to employees.

January 2014

Economy Hotel, Candler

Prior to acquisition, this property was rundown and had an occupancy of only 20%. Over the next two years, we turned the asset around through capital investments and implementation of stronger operating procedures. The asset now stands at a 90% occupancy year round!

Our first foray into the Event Hall business. Initially purchased in the form of an empty building, the event hall has been completely renovated, employs five staff, and facilitates community events year round. Since opening, it has been booked every weekend!

Economy Hotel, Atlanta

The Hotel located on Fulton Industrial Blvd was essentially shut down and bank owned. In 2018 the business sits at 90% occupancy, employees 12 people and has grown to be a top performer!

Our first foray into the Vacation Rental Business. This business unit acquires top tier residential single family homes in excellent locations and rents out the properties as micro hotels throughout the year.

August 2018

Economy Hotel, Macon

Intent on expanding into parts of rural Georgia, we opened its first location in Macon, Georgia. This 110 room property was also on the verge of shutting down. In only three short months, it has been fully renovated and sits at 90% occupancy! Economy Hotel loves Macon!

January 2019

Stablegold Hospitality Designs

We decided to start off 2019 with style by stepping into the interior design business. Former property owners were so inspired by the significant improvements made to their properties, after acquisition, that they often consulted our design experts for their own projects. We look forward to helping others implement a fabulous design for their space!

Customer Spotlight

Who better to shine a spotlight on then our loyal guests who keep us all on our toes? Are you a customer or do you know one with an interesting experience to tell, business to promote, or inspiring story to share? Inform your manager today!


Our next customer spotlight is on Donita Rae Billingsley, who came to Atlanta 17 years ago from Kansas City, Missouri, with her two children and former husband.

Billingsley and her husband had a passion for the hospitality industry and wanted to open up a new restaurant in the city. With a sad turn of events, her husband passed away from lung cancer. Soon after, Billingsley was going through the struggles of being a single mom while working long hours as a teacher in Virginia Highlands. In need of more income, she also started up a successful side business to outsource nannies.

"I didn't think about it. I just thought about my children, and they needed me." said Billingsley. "I wanted things to be better for them financially and mentally."

Last year, however, she had to take a leave of absence after she got hurt on the job with a torn meniscus. At the time, she was renting out a house in Eastland which had major electrical problems that caused the power to overheat. "It was too dangerous to live there and the owner wouldn't fix the issues," said Billingsley.

While looking for a new home, she heard about Economy Hotel from her niece who was living at the hotel. "It's much more preferable to signing a fixed lease term," explains Billingsley, who enjoys the flexibility of "pay as you go." With all utilities included, it became a deal that she "couldn't pass up."

She hopes to see more affordable housing deals, such as Economy Hotel, in Atlanta. "Ten years ago, I could find a place to rent for $800-$900. Now it costs up to $3,000 to live in a nice, affordable area" said Billingsley.

She went on to describe the vicious cycle of poverty so many Atlantans find themselves trapped in before coming to the hotel. "I've talked to people here. It just takes one disagreement with their landlord to be evicted, and one eviction could mess you up for years because you can't get into another lease agreement. There's no 'second chance' rental agreement program," said Billingsley. "We have a lot of people who were in that situation before coming to Economy Hotel."

Billingsley moved to the hotel in 2019, and brought her daughter and mother to live with her. Her mom was previously living in a care home. "She wasn't getting adequate care and it was way too expensive," said Billingsley.

Nowadays while healing from her injury and spending quality time with her mom, Billingsley is saving up enough to own her own home, and exploring her passion for painting.
