Travelodge has contacted Mansfield, Nottinghamshire and Nottingham councils about its plans.
The business is looking to develop partnerships with councils to develop hotel schemes to start local regeneration.
Travelodge has written to 220 local authorities across the UK proposing new hotels to support their programmes.
Steve Bennett, Travelodge’s chief property and development officer said: “In the current climate, local authorities are under pressure to invest in their economy and support regeneration projects.
“This is why we have written to three local authorities across Nottinghamshire to offer our support as we have a requirement to nearly double our Nottinghamshire portfolio with a further three Travelodge hotels across the region.
“Our target locations include Nottingham, Trent Bridge and Mansfield. This expansion could represent a multi-million investment for third-party investors and create 75 jobs.”
“Britain is now a nation of budget travellers, with more of us choosing to stay in budget hotels than any other hotel type and this trend is set to grow, which is why we are looking to expand our UK hotel network with a further 300 hotels.
“Adding a Travelodge hotel can be a catalyst to attract businesses to support regeneration, bring vacant buildings back into economic use as well as attract thousands of new overnight visitors to the area and revitalise high streets.
“In addition, our research shows that, on average, Travelodge customers will spend at least double their room rate with local businesses during their stay; this can be an annual, multi-million-pound boost into the local economy.”
