No beer or distilled spirits may be on the premises. Wine shall not be given away to guests, but the price of the wine shall be included in the price of the overnight transient occupancy accomodation. Removal of wine from the grounds is not permitted. Minors are allowed on the premises.”
Type 70 On Sale General-Restricted Service-“Authorizes the sale or furnishing of beer, wine and distilled spirits for consumption on the premises to the establishment’s overnight transient occupancy guests or their invitees. This license is normally issued to ‘suite-type’ hotels and motels, which exercise the license privileges for guests’ ‘complimentary’ happy hour. Minors are allowed on the premises.”
