If she let a punter smoke in her room she will have been fined £150 by the hote and told to leave. Security will go to her room but only to ensure the manager was safe when asking her to leave. She would not have had to leave her things in the room and probably misunderstood as they do wait for you to pack and you also pay the fine at the front desk when leaving
Smoking in the room sets off an alarm at reception and the manager would have been called for and would have gone to the room in less than 30minutes normally
It's not illegal and it is in the T&Cs that you sign when checking in that smoking in the rooms incurs a charge of £150 as the room is out of use for at least 24 hours due to the odour
Not many trace lodges have security so it was probably the manager and assistant manager and neither would have tried to search her handbag as they would know this is illegal although they would pick it up and give it to her whilst explaining the fine and to get her to get a move in in leaving the room
How do I know this? Been there done that. If you book a hotel you cannot allow clients to smoke in the room
Actually the 150 fine is unenforceable if someone refuses to pay it. You can't demand payment and prevent someone leaving, that is kidnap and extortion.
All a girl needs say is I'm not paying the fine as you are asking me to leave the hotel, which is within the rights of the management. If they wish to fine her then they can issue a civil claim for breach of contract.
However, given costs are not recoverable, it would not be worth the hotels while doing so.
I've no idea whether the op is telling the truth but if what is claimed to have happened did happen then the girl in question shout issue a civil claim against the hotel for harassment and claim damages plus a refund of the room. There is no proof she was an escort. Condoms in a bag would simply be evidence she practices safe sex.
I agree what others have said, if what op has said is true then it is most likely girl got scammed by some lads who clocked on what was happening.
