I'm sure the drug dealers and prostitues will run out the door when "instructed of the hotel’s zero tolerance policy for illegal and inappropriate behavior."

Charge for each police call. And charge high.

This is an excellent idea. Doesn't the fire department already do this? Why not the police? Maybe you get one or two calls a year, but if The Red Roof Inn had to pay for all of these police visits, they might take a more serious approach to the situation and security.

I'm pretty sure all hotels already have a zero tollerance policy in place for illegal behavior. What other policy can a hotel have, a three strikes and your out policy regarding illegal activity?

Based on the above article, this all sounds like a 'band-aid fix' to the problem. No way is this going to work. I am curious as to why the City of Woodbury is so dedicated to the Red Roof Inn? Looks like they are being pretty passive in this situation. The reality is, it is time to close it down. The demographic that the Red Roof Inn attracts and markets, isn't working for Woodbury or the surrounding communities. Enough is enough. Close it down.

Maybe requiring a credit card would be a good step forward to weed out a few of the "top notch" guests.

That was something Melanie brought up too, Bill. Here's the story I had with her: http://patch.com/A-x9xX

Exactly. Problem solved. No criminal wants to violate a "policy" so that will take care of things.
STW September 20, 2012 at 06:24 PM
That should be the very first step, and should be done immediately.
Jim G. September 20, 2012 at 07:54 PM
They started requiring a credit card a few days ago.

Thanks for the info Jim.
