I have recently been informed that Choice Hotels brand Sleep Inn, is employing convicted felons, and especially grand larceny convicts to work cleaning their rooms while on work release from jail. I have family who visit me from out of town and "were" staying at the local Sleep Inn Hotel.
It was a shock to say the least, when we found out that convicts from the local regional jail had access to their rooms and belongings, while they were away. Could anyone tell me why, in our current economy, Choice Hotels International, would not hire local unemployed persons, who have not committed crimes, to fill their available positions.
I think this is a matter for everyone to consider before booking rooms with them. Pass this on to all the consumer advocacy groups you know of.
