Perhaps the single most important appliance in the motel or hotel is the Hotel Ice Dispenser. Ice-O-Matic provides a few options for your hotel ice dispenser, each of which measures 22 or 30 inches wide. Your choice of an Ice-O-Matic hotel ice dispenser should depend on the size of your hotel or frequency of your guests' ice machine visits. Ice-O-Matic's hotel ice dispensers will hold 120 or 180 pounds inside the self-contained storage bins to suit your guests' ice requirements. As a general rule, you should assume that each occupied room will require around five pounds of ice per night. These hotel ice dispensers from Ice-O-Matic dispense ice at a rate of a quarter pound per second, a rate enhanced by Ice-O-Matic's Turbo Dispense feature. Ice-O-Matic hotel ice dispensers protect their ice and its quality with four inches of insulation for those times when the ice machine goes untouched for an extended period of time or when temperatures increase, preventing the ice from melting. Ice-O-Matic's hotel ice dispensers operate with a simple "push chute" design, where the user must simply push the dispenser chute to receive the ice desired. Some Ice-O-Matic hotel ice dispensers are available with a water dispenser, and can be made to be operated by coin or token as well, if desired.
