Best Western owners have lost $190,000 in their first nine months in Danville and they say it is because their sign can't be seen from the road.
City Commissioners agreed Monday that they would try to amend the Planning and Zoning ordinance to allow the hotel to raise its sign.
Owner Loyd Abdu said that he had planned to put the sign at the high point of the property, but was told by the gas company that he could not because a high pressure line runs under it.
He said that night after night customers call for directions and still get lost.
"Right now it makes more sense to close and pay the mortgage."
Abdu has bought some temporary signs which were posted on Friday, and he said that occupancy was up to 70 percent over the weekend.
