Our Customers: Motel 6 in Mankato

Left to Right Kyle Roberts, Tom Yenish


Tom Yenish is an interesting guy. He pioneered the idea of a pet resort in SW Minnesota by opening The Paw several years ago. Tom is a person who strives to find new ideas and the best people for his ventures. He opened his first “people” resort, the Motel 6 earlier this year. Motel 6 is not known nationally as a resort, but you are treated as if you are in a resort when you arrive. Manager Kyle Roberts is a 27-year-old who has taken over the hotel with good advice from Tom. A beautiful lobby, well-furnished rooms and many small touches make it an enjoyable stay in an efficient hotel. The commercial laundry is isolated from all sleeping rooms so staff can run washers and dryers any time night or day. Multiple TV screens allow staff in the laundry to monitor the entire hotel while folding towels. High-speed Milnor 60# VRJ washers are raised to a convenient loading height for workers and there is very ample workspace behind the washers to service the drain and washers. Dryers are in an enclosure to use outdoor makeup air for greatest efficiency in drying. and Indy pace cars.

Service Tips By Ed

Ed TipsAir Compressor Maintenance

Something that not many operators think about are the air compressors that feed your washers, folders, ironers, feeders, presses,
dry cleaning machines and secondary lint filters. The air from the air compressor must be moisture free. Water in the air can rust steel components or cause corrosion on aluminum valves and air cylinders. Older brass valves and cylinders are also adversely affected.


We recommend a refrigerated air dryer for new, more sensitive equipment in laundries and dry cleaners. And always be sure to drain your compressed air tank every day.

Water Conservation for On-Premise Laundries

Milnor’s 60 lb. capacity washer-extractors feature RinSave® water conservation technology standard

Current economic conditions have forced healthcare facilities to focus on operating costs, particularly back-of-the-house operations – including the on-premise laundry, according to healthcare operators. This innovative process called RinSave® eliminates up to two high level rinses (.33 gallons per pound processed) and up to 10 minutes in the wash formula. It saves labor, water, sewer and electricity which are the largest direct operating expenses in the laundry. RinSave® conserves water, further substantiates your facility’s green program and is infinitely sustainable, without further investment.


Typical direct operating costs with two Milnor RinSave® water saving 60 lb. washers.
