Description Hotel industry is one of the lucrative ventures which provide a lot of services to people. It has globally aided many countries in terms of revenue generation. A country’s revenue system can work effectively if the hotel industry pays their tax rate allocated to them. The hotel industry provides services like accommodation, food, entertainment and health and fitness to people. The objective of the study was to find out the role of the hotel industry in the development of Wa Municipality in the Upper West Region of Ghana. All the workers of the selected hotels in Wa Municipality constituted the sample. Four hotels were selected for the study by the use of systematic and simple random sampling. Sixty (60) respondents were selected for the study. The study found out that the hotel industry of Wa Municipality in the Upper West Region of Ghana provide jobs for people, provide accommodation for visitors, support revenue generation of Wa Municipal Assembly. The study further found out that the hotel industry in Wa is faced with challenges such as energy crises, high tax rate, high water and electricity bills. The study recommends that the government of Ghana should reduce the tax rate of the hotel industry, reduce the electricity and water bills of hotels, and provide a good regulatory framework to enhance their operations.
