Some Motel 6 Will Only Rent Rooms To Those 21 and Over-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
Posts and letters from angry parents have gone viral on the Internet alleging that Motel 6 refused rooms to their sons who are in the military.
TruthOrFiction.com called Motel 6 and a spokesperson told us that the company would never turn away a customer because he or she was a member of the military. Depending on state, municipal laws, or the policies of a particular Motel 6 establishment, customers who are under the age of 21 may be turned away.
The Motel 6 in Atlanta Ga. stated on its reservation page that they will only rent rooms to customers over the age of 21.
Another call to surrounding hotels revealed that different establishments had different age policies. The Drury Inn, down the street from the Atlanta Motel 6 offered rooms to customers who are 18 years old and older. We called a Holiday Inn further down the street, who told us that they had a 21 and over policy.
The Motel 6 spokesperson did tell us that they offer discounts to Military members. Click here for information on the discount policy for military members.

Dear Motel 6. Just wanted applaud your patriotism. My son, who is an active duty soldier in the Army had to fly out today from Atlanta to Anchorage Alaska to report in to his new duty station. He drove down to Atlanta yesterday from Fredericksburg a day early so he wouldn’t miss his flight. Of course he needed a place to stay and chose Motel 6 because of your low rates. He thought he was set because he made a reservation in advance. Low and behold he was turned away at midnight when he arrived because he is only 20 years old. Even after showing his military ID he was sent packing. Only place he could find at that late hour was hotel that charged the young Private $150. Way to go Motel 6. He is old enough to defend your freedom but not old enough to rent one of your stellar rooms. Leave this on your time line. I dare you. Motel 6
To all my friends, Motel 6 is of course not allowing my post so please share.
