This was taken at a Rodeway Inn located in San Antonio,Texas. The sign indicates that users of the hotel parking lot assume all risk and liability.
Let’s assume for a moment there was a large and deep pothole in the hotel parking lot and that a patron upon entering the parking lot late at night damaged their car by driving over pothole.
Should the hotel guest be liable for damage done to their vehicle? The answer is both morally and legally an unequivocal NO! Know your rights and do not be intimidated by unfair sign postings.

Laundry establishments are notorious for not compensating their customers for garments damaged or lost at establishment. For example, read the Santa Clarita Laundry Terms of Service(TOS) and you will find that you have to agree to not hold Santa Clarita liable if any of your garments are lost under their care. Santa Clarita is upfront about their policies and you have the right to choose another laundry establishment.
