Columbia, MO asked in Consumer Law, Personal Injury, Civil Rights and Legal Malpractice for Missouri

Q: can an extended stay hotel refuse to continue to rent due to rumors?

I was put on an extended stay hotel DNR list due to rumors and nothing else. I rented the room for a week and did put another guest on my room she is an adult, I have no control over her. I did nothing wrong never had the police there, did not bother anyone. I was always in my room. Was told that due to rumors that I was selling drugs that I was put on the DNR list. I worked on my car outside in the parking lot, cameras directly on me and camera right there at my hotel room door and NO ONE WAS GOING IN AND OUT AND DEFINITELY WAS NOT A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE AS WELL! I feel this is not fair and I am being judged by others actions which has nothing to do with me! I want this taken care of and know my rights have been violated!

A: A hotel may not discriminate against you on account of race, religion, national origin, etc., but may discriminate against you on account of merely not liking you or mistakenly believing you are selling drugs.
