I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Lincoln California the night of 8/2-8/3. I understand and respect the no smoking policy of the hotel, but when I was charged $200 for a smoking fee, I was surprised. I don’t think that customers should be held to pay the cleaning of rooms just because we stay in them during a horrible fire season! There was thick smoke in the air everywhere within 100 miles. I was on the bottom floor right around the corner from the front door. If I wanted to smoke I would have walked 10 seconds to go outside. And since the air was so bad in Northern California, I didn’t even want a cigarette, just my inhaler. When I tried to talk to them to dispute the charges, they couldn’t show me any evidence in which they are supposed to have nor any special cleaning that the charge was supposed pay for. This is very wrong, and if they did it to me then they probably did it to other guests.
