“This couple checked in to the hotel. They were a pleasant, sweet couple. Nothing out of the ordinary, probably in their late 20s. They were due to stay a couple of days around the holidays. So the next day after they checked in, a housekeeper brought to our attention at the front desk that the guests were pretty much moving into the hotel when she went to clean their room.
They had a copious amount of luggage and random items in their room. They even brought in a new dresser, cooking ware, hot plates, tons and tons of clothes, and presents for Christmas. We immediately got worried, because guests weren’t allowed to cook in their room of the concern of fire. So no hot plates, no toaster ovens, no microwaves… none of that was allowed. It was also worrisome when they were only booked for a few days. The housekeeper refreshed their room and we let it slide for now. The front desk didn’t want to make the guest feel like we were snooping or anything. They were entitled to privacy and such until they were due to check out, as long as we had full payment.
Anyways, the next day came around. It wasn’t a terrible morning until the police arrived.
They informed the front desk they had received a domestic disturbance call and were there to arrest someone from that couple’s room. The room was in the woman’s name. And the man called the police on her for her beating him. She was a small petite girl, while he was a large bulky dude. There was no way she could even harm him; he didn’t even have a scratch. But since the room was in her name, she got arrested. The man, who proceeded to cause such a scene in the lobby, had to be walked from the property and couldn’t return. So both of them left and left everything in the room. They even left their car. So we put the room out of service for a few days because of all the belongings in it. It was not possible for us to move all of it, and we literally didn’t know where else to put it all.
A few days went by and we got a call. It was the husband. From the story he was claiming, she left him, cheated on him with this second dude who had been with her, took his car, and his credit cards and money. She racked up 10K on his credit card. He wanted the items in the room back and his car. He literally came with his whole family to pack up the room and take everything. This poor man was cheated on and broke because of this woman. They misplaced the keys to the car and it almost got towed after a month because they didn’t come back to get it for a while.
It was crazy. And we would never even have thought anything was wrong initially. They were a calm, cool, collect couple at check-in. But people throw you for surprises. But I’m sure the couple got a divorce and everything afterward.”
