I booked a double non-smoking room at this hotel for two gentlemen who are part of an organization I volunteer with, as they were attending a conference nearby. When they arrived and the front desk staff realized they were black, they put them into a room in the basement that wreaked of smoke. When they asked to be moved because of this odor, they were told all double rooms were full and they could not be moved. When I called the hotel to inquire, I started by asking the woman who answered the hone if they had double non-smoking rooms available for that night. (Note, I am white and definitely sound white on the phone.) The woman told me they had open double rooms and quoted me a price. I then asked if I could book one of those rooms and have the gentlemen moved from the room they were in and she immediately handed the phone to the manager. The manager proceeded to tell me they had no open double rooms and insisted that the room they were in was a non-smoking room and he could not move them. They checked out and found a cleaner, nicer room at another hotel for only $30 more per night (and cheaper than the price quoted to me on the phone by the front desk when they supposedly had available rooms at the Days Inn). This place is probably fine if you aren't black or some other minority that the management doesn't care for, but why would you want to stay at a hotel that still believes in Jim Crow laws?
