I recently booked a room at this Motel 6:
2560 Fontaine Road
San Jose, CA 95121
Upon arrival I was informed that ALL guest under 20 had to show ID or we could not stay. Two of us had ID's but my 17 year old son and his 17 year old friend did not have a state issued ID and we were refused service based on this. I asked the front desk person if I had my 6 year old with me would he have to show ID, because the sign clearly stated that ALL guest had to have ID. I was informed no that children did not need to have ID. I informed her that the two without ID's were under age (and under 20 as they previously asked) and one being my son. To me is seemed like this location is making up stuff as they go, I will not be staying in a Motel 6 ever and I will be advising all I know to avoid Motel 6 in the future.
Just a side note here:
We drove from NJ to CA and not once at any hotel/motel/Inn were we asked to show ID for everyone and the idea of Motel 6 keeping a copy of everyones ID on file did not sit well with me. You have my ID, my credit card and even my license plate that really is all I feel any establishment needs. Maybe I am wrong but out of the last 7 places we have stayed at on this trip, this only one that left a bad taste in my mouth.
And below you will find the sign that has this loosely based policy on guest at this place:
You would have thought that you were checking into the White House or something!?!?! But like the title of this post says, screw you Motel 6! You can keep the light on all you want, you and Tom Bodett and go fuck yourself with something hard and sandpapery!
