DIY Asphalt Maintenance: Hotels Choose Asphalt Kingdom
Hotel owners know that the first impression their customers get from them is when they step out of their cars and look down on the driveway or parking lot. A well-maintained pavement immediately puts guests at ease.
By keeping up with asphalt maintenance, hotels save money on repairs and make a great first impression to guests.
We've worked with countless hotels - from the largest chains to independent roadside motels - to provide solutions that minimize downtime and repairs, and create an inviting environment for their businesses.

Knights Inn Hotel Liverpool, NY
When winter snows hit early this year, the owner of the Knights Inn Hotel knew he had better move quickly to seal cracks in his parking lot.
He had tried sealing by hand in the past, but dreaded the time it took. He phoned our offices, and in less than an hour he had his solution ordered and en route.
Nilesh Patel had used contractors in the past, but he was never happy with the work they had done. They never sealed as many cracks as he thought they would. He wanted expert advice, and he wanted to get the job done right.
The Asphalt Kingdom Solution
After watching the RY10 crack filler in action in a video on AsphaltKingdom.com, he couldn’t believe how much easier it would be than filling the cracks in his lot by hand, the way he had done in previous years. He called our team and within an hour he had an RY10 and the right amount of hot pour crack fill on its way to the Knights Inn.
Nilesh felt comfortable that he wouldn’t be left in the fog once he got the equipment. He had the step-by-step crack fill guide and the video to follow, and he liked the idea that he could fill cracks to protect his investment now, and then sealcoat in the spring.
Upgrading to our crack filler made an instant difference for Nilesh. Previously, he had needed to redo his work every year because his inferior filler would peel up in the spring. He could tell right away that this professional-quality crack filler would last much longer than the products he and his crew had worked with in the past.

The Knights Inn parking lot is filled now, in less time than he thought it would take. Nilesh plans on only having to redo the crack filling every 2-3 years now that he is using the same products the professionals use. The RY10 worked as well as he had expected, so he’s already picked out a new spray system and sealcoating spray for spring. The savings will pay for themselves again.

Travelodge Quesnel BC
Rajesh Sood bought the Travelodge 4 years ago, and works hard to make it look appealing to passers-by.
When the first snowclouds began to appear on the horizon, he knew he had to take quick action to protect his parking lot and his investment.
With winter coming to his remote location in rural Canada, the owner of the Travelodge knew he had to take action, and knew he would have to do it himself. He discussed the extreme temperatures he had to deal with with AK and found a solution to his problem.
In the past, Raj has always found that with anything maintenance-related, there is always a catch with the equipment. He figured he would have to do a lot of work to get the equipment running properly and that he would be ‘on his own’, but given his remote location, he didn’t feel he had an option.
The Asphalt Kingdom Solution
Raj’s parking lot does see a lot of snow in its remote Canadian location and a lot of sun in the summer, but after talking with the team at Asphalt Kingdom, he became confident that our products and equipment were designed to stand up under the toughest circumstances.
He was pleasantly surprised to find out that doing the work himself would save significantly, and he would also be able to supervise his crew to ensure the work was done to the highest standard – something he couldn’t do with a contractor.
Although he and his four-man crew had no experience maintaining asphalt, they felt comfortable trying to do their own crack filling after speaking with us.
“The work was easier than we thought it would be, and you were always there for us unlike some online companies you try to get a hold of.”
Raj was amazed at how easy it was to use the RY10 – just hook up the propane, drop in the crackfiller, and away you go! Shipping time even to his remote location was less than 10 business days. Raj has the confidence to try more asphalt maintenance.
