A short-lived brand of hotels which could be found at some Extra motorway services. Brand was used by The Real Hotels Company following the end of a licence agreement to use the Sleep Inn brand. In 21 January 2009 The Real Hotel Company fell into administration, causing the hotels to close in March 2009.

The Extra hotel sites were sold to Welcome Break and in July of the same year were re-opened as Days Inns. Other sites were sold to other operators including Travelodge, Hampton by Hilton, Campanile and Park Inn.
