We had a late start from Tennessee. We called hotel when in Columbia, SC to make sure they had availability. We drove an extra hour to get there. We were trying to get as much mileage accomplished before resting for the night.
We arrived at Midnight. Asked owner/manager if we could see room before purchasing and he told us NO not after 10 pm. I told him I would give him my driver's license and a credit card to hold as we looked at room. I wanted to make sure room was clean. If it was clean we would purchase room. That is when he told me to leave and go somewhere else.
I have been traveling for 50 years. This is the first time I have been refused a room and told to leave. We stopped at a nearby gas station before leaving and I explained to cashier what happened. She told me that he is very rude to her, when in store, so she was not surprised.
So I figured room must not be clean and subpar since he didn't want us to see it. We went further south on I-95 and stayed at another hotel. They let me see room at 1am before purchase to check cleanliness. We stayed there instead.More
