Former Detroit Lion, TJ Lang, blasts local hotel on Twitter

If you happen to follow former Detroit Lions‘ offensive lineman T.J. Lang on Twitter, you may have already seen his absolute disdain for a northern Michigan hotel. Warning: Very aggressive language used in this article.

On Friday night, Lang took to Twitter to absolutely destroy the Days Inn hotel in Sault Ste. Marie.

Lang was in Sault Ste. Marie for a youth hockey tournament and he was staying at the Days Inn hotel, where it sounds like he had a horrible experience. In his Tweets, he mentions bed bugs “galore,” the place smells like sewage and owner is an arrogant asshole.

It escalated to the point where the owner called the city police on Lang. Lang’s response on Twitter? “Even found out the local police hate them!”

It sounds like booking the Days Inn in Sault St. Marie was a bad option for T.J. Lang.

For the record, the Days Inn was contacted for comment and we were told the owner was on vacation for a few days. We would be more than happy to get the Days Inn’s version of events. However, the referred us to the city police who were not available for comment.

Editor’s note: Regardless of the circumstances Lang may have experienced at a local hotel in Sault Ste Marie, he is visiting with a youth hockey team which I’m sure many, if not all, of them follow him on Twitter. This type of public expression in uncalled for especially when you are attempting to mentor our youth in sports.

  1. I lived in the Soo for 18 years, and stayed at the Days Inn this summer. It could use some work, but it’s not as bad as what was posted.
    I never heard of TJ Lang, but after reading his posts I have a feeling that he holds some responsibility for being asked to leave.

  2. Actually it appears that the kids he coaches are rather young. They are much to young to have any social media accounts. For them to see what he has posted an adult would need to let them see it.
    Or, they might read this article.

  3. I was staying st the hotel at this time….This football player and people with him were a drunken hot loud mess…in the hallway with whiskey bottles in hand…when asked to settles down..bullied and laughed at manager…interrupted other guests stays…cops were called…understandable why he is a FORMER football player….an ugly goon with his cronies.
