Rent me room in front but can rent same room in back. After I called cust Ser. She said guy then said I was banned from property bc of 1st stay. Stayed 1 night and he accused me of having high traffic to and from my room which wasn't true and that me and my girlfriend was sitting outside. I told him yes bc we are not allowed 2 smoke inside the rooms. What are my options? Im a truck driver in between homes and was trying 2 rent a room for hometime and was shocked and highly upset about these accusations esp. 2 the point of banning me after refusing 2 rent me room on front but told me he can rent me room in back. This happened yesterday and it bothers me immensely bc never been banned from anywhere before. Like I said what are my options?

A: A South Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. As a GENERAL matter, hotels are given leeway in terms of declining patrons. The most practical option might be to look into other hotels. You could consult with a South Carolina to ask if they see things differently. Good luck
