Dover Hydraulic Elevator @ Comfort Inn Staunton VA

THIS was an experience, I wasn’t actually thrown out of the building but I was accused of being a terrorist in a round about kind of way.

Sir I am very sorry if i have caused any trouble. I will leave now and you will never see me again” he said “that would be a good Idea” and on the way out. I said “have a nice day sir” very politely. I am thinking about calling choice hotels. about the treatment I received. The only thing he said that was out of line was questioning my motives after i already told him. He was not terribly rude but by no means friendly as he basically accused me of being a terrorist/troublemaker.. he did refer to me as sir and i did likewise. However this was an older man and he was probably job the way he
