BIG SPRING - An update to a story NewsWest 9 first brought you Sunday night.  

Motel 6 is offering up an apology after refusing to let a local woman rent a room for the night all because she lives in Big Spring.

Marie Watkins called NewsWest 9 after the Motel 6 on Interstate 20 in Big Spring wouldn't let her rent a room Thursday night.  

She had been evacuated from her home by last week's large fire on the southside of Big Spring.   

Motel 6 tells NewsWest 9 they do not rent to locals after several rooms sustained damage from Big Spring residents.  

A Motel 6 spokesperson did offer up an apology to Watkins saying the motel was not aware of her situation.
