Ephrathah Farms’ guidelines which have gone viral on social media are:

1. Only married couples are allowed to share a room
2. Front desk may require proof of marriage like ID's, wedding rings, etc. before being allowed to book a room.

The hotel says that as much as it would like to “maximize business gains; we are compelled by our Christian belief and values to adhere to this rule.”

The hotel has also shared a picture of these guidelines on their Facebook page. Reports say the guidelines been in place for over six years now and guests are made to go through a screening process before they are given a room.
