                     Description of Cash Management Process

The following provides an explanation of the process and procedures concerning
the flow of cash of the Borrower, Summit Hospitality I, LLC. All terms not
defined herein are defined in the Loan Agreement.

     1.   In payment of services provided, cash and checks are received by each
          Individual Property. The cash and checks received are deposited into
          one of the Property Accounts. Pursuant to the terms of the Loan
          Agreement, any funds in excess of the Peg Amounts remaining in the
          Property Accounts after payment of Permitted Automatic Utility Debits
          are swept automatically into the Lockbox Account on a weekly basis.

     2.   In payment of services provided, receipts from credit card sales are
          deposited directly by the merchant credit card processor into the
          Lockbox Account.

     3.   The Lender shall make withdrawals from the Lockbox Account pursuant to
          Section 3.7, et seq. of the Loan Agreement.

     4.   Funds distributed to Borrower in accordance with Section 3.7(b)(viii)
          of the Loan Agreement shall be deposited by Borrower into a cash
          management account ("Cash Management Account").

     5.   The Cash Management Account shall be managed by and accounted for by
          The Summit Group, Inc. ("Summit"). The Cash Management Account shall
          also include funds owned by entities which are affiliates of Borrower
          and Borrower's sole member.

     6.   Summit shall account for the funds deposited by and earned by each
          entity which deposits funds into the Cash Management Account,
          including Borrower.

     7.   Summit shall credit each entity with funds in the Cash Management
          Account for interest or other earnings on the funds in the Cash
          Management Account by determining the amount of funds owned by each
          entity on a weekly basis and then crediting a pro rata share of
          interest or other earnings on the Cash Management Account to such
          entity.

     8.   Summit shall apportion any bank charges, fees or costs of the Cash
          Management Account to each entity with funds on deposit in the Cash
          Management Account by calculating the amount of funds owned by each
          entity on a weekly basis and then debiting a pro rata share of bank
          charges, fees or costs incurred by the Cash Management Account to such
          entity.

     9.   On a weekly basis Summit shall debit each entity's funds on deposit in
          the Cash Management Account by the amount of withdrawals directly
          attributable to such entity.

     10.  Excess funds may be withdrawn from the Cash Management Account and
          deposited into one or more investment accounts ("Investment
          Accounts"). Any Investment Account shall be managed by and accounted
          for by The Summit Group, Inc. ("Summit"). The Investment Accounts
          shall also include funds owned by entities which are affiliates of
          Borrower and Borrower's sole member.

     11.  Accounting of the funds on deposit in the Investment Accounts shall be
          in accordance with paragraphs 6 through 9 above.

     12.  Immediately upon notice that any entity depositing funds into the Cash
          Management Account or Investment Accounts has filed, or may file
          bankruptcy or for protection from such entity's creditors, Summit
          shall distribute all funds owned by such bankrupt entity immediately
          to such bankrupt entity. Thereafter, Summit shall not allow such
          bankrupt entity to participate in the Cash Management Account or
          Investment Accounts.

     13.  In managing the Cash Management Account and the Investment Accounts,
          Summit does and will at all times manage such accounts in such a way
          that the assets of the Borrower will at all times be identifiable and
          separable from the assets of any other entities also using the Cash
          Management Account and Investment Accounts. Summit will at no time
          treat the cash on deposit in the Cash Management Account or Investment
          Account as its own or hold itself out as the owner of the cash on
          deposit in such accounts. Summit will not deposit any of its own cash
          or assets into the Cash Management Account, Investment Account or into
          any account into which cash or other assets of the Borrower are
          placed.
