Description

This NBC News Dateline investigation uncovers "dangerous lapses in security at various motel chains across the country." It points to several examples of rapes, sexual assaults, homicides and robberies that have happened in well-known motel chains. The reporters reveal that there are "brand name motels with chronic crime problems," and that "along with the random crimes committed by violent predators .... organized burglary rings that target and stalks motel guests." The investigation finds that in recent years "hotel security had improved immensely, while motel security had not."
