Hotel guests have plenty of places to register their displeasure with a stay but now hotels and other resorts in the UK have their own recourse, a new database called GuestScan that launches this week. Around 10,000 hotels and B&Bs are expected to sign up to for the subscription-based database which will let hotels check out guests before they get to the hotel. The information in the database will show infractions like stealing towels, breaking things and general bad behavior. Businessman British businessman Neil Campbell came up with the idea after a friend who owned a B&B suffered a "visitor from hell". The service is launching in the UK and offenders can stay on the list for two to four years. Those who find themselves on the list have the right to appeal.
