``We're not going to service prom people,'' Galvin, 18, said he was told by a hotel employee Saturday morning, although he had received a confirmation number after he made the reservation April 2.
``They said (students) trash their hotel on prom night. I said we're planning on staying in our own room; we're not throwing some big party.''
A hotel employee, contacted Saturday by the Daily News, said she was familiar with the complaint but refused to comment.

``But to say you're just not going to get a room and that's our policy is a violation of these students' civil rights,'' said St. Ours.
St. Ours said she spoke with several hotel employees and was told that management feared possible skirmishes among students from rival high schools staying at the hotel Saturday night.
``The hotel employee said she once managed a hotel in Anaheim, and rival schools got into a fight, and somebody was shot. And I said that has nothing to do with these kids,'' St. Ours said.

Despite the Oxnard Marriott Residence Inn's threat to turn away students dressed in prom clothes or arriving in limousines, Galvin and his friends planned to go to the hotel after the prom to try to get the room he reserved.
St. Ours said she planned to make an issue of the matter if the hotel disappointed students who, she said, deserve good treatment.
