Q: Any one ever been denied at a Home Inn?

I just returned from a few days in lovely Zibo, where I was denied a hotel room at a Home Inn.  Luckily the Hanting next door was accommodating.   I realize not all hotels/motels are allowed to house foreigners, but I thought Home Inn was beyond that.  Apparently not.  So, have you ever been denied lodging at Home Inn or any of the other Chinese chains?

Yes, in Urumqi.

Went to another one near People Park and no problem.

That was lucky because if you have to be in Urumqi you want to be near that big park.

Something strange here.  I had lots of fun in a lot of Home Inns in Guangzhou and while the Hotel was nothing to write home to mother about, the fun was...

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
