The Best Hotel Financing Options for Your Business
Working Capital Loans
Working capital loans can help you navigate seasonal bookings throughout the year. You can use the money to cover payroll, utilities, and other operational costs. The additional working capital can also help you prepare for peak seasons, like buying inventory, adding new amenities, and more.
Working capital loans are often short-term and have shorter repayment terms typically repaid within a few months or two years. The turnaround time for working capital loans depends on the lender you’re working with. At 1West, you can receive the money you need in 24 to 48 hours after approval.
SBA loans are financing programs backed by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBA helps hotel and motel business owners secure bank-rate financing by guaranteeing up to 85% of the loan. This means that lenders are more willing to approve small businesses since they will still get a portion of their money back.
SBA loans are the most popular financing options for small business owners because they offer higher loan limits, longer repayment terms, and lower interest rates than other types of loans.
If you’re looking to take out a loan specifically for equipment purchases, consider equipment financing. This type of loan gives you the resources your need to purchase or lease hotel equipment, furniture and fixtures, vehicles, and more.
Equipment financing allows you to pay for these purchases over time rather than a one-time payment. You’ll be able to use the equipment right away while paying for it in fixed monthly increments or whatever you and your lender agreed upon.
Business Term Loans
Business term loans are great options for funding large and expensive initiatives, like a construction project or buying a new property. Once approved, lenders will give you a lump sum with repayment terms stretching for months or years. You can also use the funds for almost any business purpose instead of just large purchases.
Business Lines of Credit
A business line of credit is the best option if you’re looking for flexible hotel financing. Like a credit card, lenders will give you a credit limit that you can withdraw from any time. You don’t have to use all the money at once, and you’ll only repay for the money you’ve withdrawn plus interest. Business lines of credit are revolving in nature. This means that your credit limit goes back up to its original limit after paying off your debt.
