    I encountered the same attitude in Warsaw, when I went in to thank them for "hosting".

    Such a strong contrast to the manager of the Holiday Inn in Plymouth, NC. She came out to talk, and invited the carload in to sit in the air conditioned lobby, and provided coffee and local lore/chat.

    Thanks for the info. I visited this forum to research a stop on a future trip. Looks like plenty of other places to spend $ where I will feel welcome.

    Same for the supercharger in Columbia. A hotel staff person came out and asked if we wanted to bring our chicfilet picknic inside where the AC was nice. Do you want customers for life when choosing hotels? Because that's how your get customers for life.

    We stayed in the Charleston Courtyard (nice hotel by the way--would definitely recommend it) Friday night and let the manager on duty know that we stayed due to the Supercharger. I also let her know that people had posted about not being allowed into the restroom while charging. She said that is not their policy and that Tesla owners are welcome inside while using the Supercharger. Hopefully there were just one or two employees who weee unaware of the policy due to the newness of the Supercharger. She also mentioned they've seen many more cars charging there than they expected.

    Yesterday we headed out from Pittsburgh to go home to Sarasota with a stop in Blythewood at the Holiday Inn. When the NAV wanted to route me east to 95 I ignored it and drove to Cambridge. When I selected Blythewood it again gave me a very roundabout route. This time I noticed it was because Charleston was listed as offline. I called Tesla and they informed me that only two of the stalls were working and they had a technician scheduled for repair. They said 2a and 2b were ok. We stopped and charged at 2b and had a nice frap at Starbucks, no problems.
    I'll also mention that when we pulled into the Holiday Inn in Blythewood I was surprised to find two level 2 chargers ( not Tesla) . Charged overnight and we can skip the Columbia Supercharger!
