Hotel evacuates for the evening

America’s Best Value Inn, formerly Motel 6, was busy finding its customers other accommodations Tuesday afternoon after its fire safety system malfunctioned. Maintenance director William Payne said the hotel’s system could not be inspected until today, and the delay required hotel staff to send its guests to other hotels in Jefferson City, at the owner’s expense. America’s Best had approximately 40 guests scheduled to stay overnight on Tuesday that had to go elsewhere. Payne said he hoped the hotel would be back in business tonight, but they wouldn’t know until the system had been inspected.

Motel 6 changed its affiliation to America’s Best Value Inn in recent weeks. The local motel, located at 1624 Jefferson St., is also in the midst of a remodel.
