Well staying at the red roof inn in Arcata in Humboldt county I was falsely accused of smoking in the room and was told that my $100 cash deposit was going to be kept. I told the lady that was working at the counter that there was no way we were smoking in the room and wanted another person's opinion she told me there was not another employee there to verify what she was accusing of I told her there's no way that she was the only one working and that I either wanted my money or second opinion she then gave me my money back and said that she would have to have her manager take a look and more than likely I was going to be put on to the no rent policy list.
I was not smoking in the room and I think this was just a plot of hers to try to keep my money because it was a cash deposit.
She showed me a picture of what look like might have been Asher dirt or something on the windowsill when we never had opened the window or even pulled back to curtains becouse it had been cold and rainy out. that picture could have come out of any room at any time but I know it wasn't our room because we had not been smoking in there at any time.If you don't have to don't leave a cash deposit watch out for the red roof inn in Arcata
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
Red Roof Inn Cons: Lack of social skills from management.
