Although establishments tend to be small, the majority of jobs are in larger hotels—those with more than 100 employees.
In addition to job growth, job opportunities for hotel and motel desk clerks are expected to be good because of the need to replace the many clerks who either transfer to other occupations that offer better pay and advancement opportunities or who leave the workforce altogether.
