Video is circulating of the owner of the Crown Choice Inn & Suites in Mackinaw City, Michigan kicking a woman out of his hotel with her family late at night, after she complains about flooding in her room. A police report is involved.
In video taken by the hotel guest, a man who identifies himself as part of the family that owns the property tells her she’s a “dumb Democrat” for not realizing she becomes responsible for her room’s plumbing once she stays there:
You rented the room, it’s your bathroom now. You’re responsible for the room. Stop being an indiot…Stop being a dumb Democrat. Now go to your room, pack your stuff and leave.
He kicks her out of the hotel, says he’s going to charge for the room and for damage.

According to the woman’s recounting of the incident on Facebook, she brought 5 kids on the trip and stayed at this property the night before planning to visit Mackinac Island.
The family didn’t go to bed until 11 p.m. That’s when the woman’s son “heard water running and discovered the bathroom was flooding.” She ran down to the front desk. The man there wanted to know if she had turned off the water valve. That’s what she was looking for help with. And, she says, that’s what triggered the incident – that the hotel owner believed her failure to immediate turn off the valve made her responsible for any damage.
Police responded. They left the hotel and went in search of another property, but didn’t find one with rooms available until 2:30 a.m.
Apparently this woman isn’t the only one who faced challenges with the Crown Choice Inn & Suites in Mackinaw City, Michigan, because recent TripAdvisor reviews include declarations of “Terrible!” “Absolutely Terrible!” and “BAD NEWS!!!”
