The City of Ardmore cut off water supplies to a local motel Thursday for failing to pay taxes.

People staying at the Hampton Inn Thursday may have had a bed and cable TV, but no water.

The City of Ardmore cut off the water because the owners of the motel had failed to pay bed taxes for the past eight months. The bill stood at $53,000, city officials said Thursday.

Management of the motel was reportedly trying to work out a deal Thursday evening to pay some of the tax, but no money had been received at City Hall, officials said.
