We lost our house a little over a year & a half ago & literally have been sleeping behind a church, we got thrown out of the cheap hotels in Springfield for the following places/reasons:

(1) Stevenson INN Motel, because we were paying 700 a month when we moved in & the owner knew we could afford it & kept upping the price we said something they got mad & threw us out we sued him for Illegal Eviction & was not allowed to return back there,

(2) Pioneer Motel, because we stayed there for months paying 450 my husband got shocked on the stove & told the owner he got mad & threw us out we filed a complaint with the health dept. & filed suit & won & was refused to return,

(3)Shamrock Motel, The owner owned Pioneer Motel & Shamrock and sold it to the person who now owns both properties,

(4) Quest Inn/(Now called Midtown) Illegally evicted sued & won, they are under new managment & still can't go back there,

(5) Red Roof Inn Because Micheal's Kidney failed & he was asleep & bled on the sheets due to his kidney & I cleaned the sheets up but the gentlemen who since left there seen me take the sheets to the laundry room & complained to the owner who also owns Super 8 motel, & they kicked him out of Springfield's location only can still go to any other Red Roof Inn in St. [continued below]....

..... Louis, Chicago, Bloomington anywhere just not Springfield.

(6)Homestyle Inn because the owner that owns that hotel owns one of the other hotels that were barred from & refused to let us in there.

(7) We can still go to Lincoln's Lodge & Best Rest Inn but that's the only cheap hotels we can go to.

We choose to come here to HOJO because the staff was extremely friendly & had excellent workers things were going great I could've got an apartment but chose to stay here instead of paying for my rent to get my apartment & lost it but considering that I thought the owner's wife & the owner was mine & my husband's friend I was extremely loyal to these guys & ignored the fact that we could've got off the streets but chose to stay here for a couple weeks at a time & back on the streets a couple weeks but at least I was in a good friendly hotel with friendly owners/workers the rooms were trashy for the price except for room 100 but the friendliness outweighed that & I ignored that and kept coming here we stored our stuff mind you only 2 little bags & truth to be known I could've stored them with my husband's friends Joey's work @ Gallina's but once I have a friend you can ask my husband I'm extremely loyal to them & I was & still am loyal to them

I'm here now until tomorrow & I hate doing this but they've just been absolutely horrible to me lately which I'll get into in a minute but I spent well over a 1,000 dollars a month here & don't have nothing to show for it & don't care because that's what friends do there for one another & I'm there for them because even now I still consider them my friends which I'll get into in a minute but we stayed here the 25th, to the 30th of April & checked out on the 30th and checked back in on May 1 & have since been here ever since but now the owner is acting funny because I held my bags here & chewed my out because of it I told them I wouldn't come back here & that I could go back to Bloomington & truth to be known I will after how bad they've since been treating me I probably will and I'm getting really tired of it & anyway I went up to pay for today & was told by Rachel that I had to leave tomorrow when I stayed @ Hawthorn Suites they got packed & held our room anyway but this hotel is putting us out because there supposedly packed now mind you I spend tons of money here more money than I have & this is how they treat me outrageous & I'm making sure that everyone knows about how this hotel treats their best customers.
