In a tweet about reports first published in the Phoenix New Times, Motel 6 said Wednesday the procedure was implemented at the local level without the knowledge of senior management.

The company said the practice was discontinued when executives became aware of it last week.

Employees at the Motel 6 at one of the location near a stretch of other budget motels and fast food restaurants refused to answer questions Thursday and referred all queries to corporate headquarters.
