The Wolffs at the door

"They were serial charmers, the oh-so-sociable elderly couple who came to stay at houses and hotels, made themselves at home, and then skipped town without paying. But the improbable run is over . . ."

When they appeared a short time later at a Quality Inn and Suites in Lexington, they told managers they planned to stay a short time while they looked for a house. It would be a year before they left.
Meanwhile, the credit card the Wolffs had used to pay their $350 weekly bill at the Quality Inn was no longer being accepted, and for six months frustrated managers tried fruitlessly to kick them out.
While hotel management called police and launched legal action, the couple rested comfortably in their room, often with cocktails, Scholefield said. They continued to show up each morning for the free continental breakfast, chatting casually over coffee.


I wonder whether they earned any hotel points.

Full story.
