The SNL star vented her frustration with the hotel on Twitter, telling her 694,000 followers, "Had the worst stay @ritzcarlton" adding to her 694,000 followers “do not stay there!! They don't like black people!!"

Jones stayed at the Ritz-Carlton in Los Angeles over the weekend while hosting Sunday night's BET Awards.

The Ritz-Carlton is one of the most luxurious hotel chains in the world and in Los Angeles, the rooms start at $600 a night.

The hotel was convenient for Jones, as it was just two blocks away from the Microsoft Center where the BET Awards were taking place.

It is unknown what triggered her dismay at the hotel, but one of her Twitter followers claimed the comedian was upset about supposedly being overbilled by $30 as she checked out, but that could not be confirmed.
