ON A BUDGET: Snoop Dog chose to stay at a Holiday Inn Express hotel after a show in Devon

HE RAPS about his extravagant lifestyle – but millionaire hip-hop star Snoop Dogg decided to ditch the luxuries by staying at a Holiday Inn Express hotel after a show in Devon, last weekend.

The US rapper, also known as Snoop Lion, stayed at the low-priced hotel in Sowton, Exeter after his exclusive DJ set at the Timepiece nightclub on Saturday (August 9).

The 42-year-old and his entourage checked out at 3pm on Sunday (August 10) after chatting with staff and customers and having his photo taken.

According to the Mail Online, Snoop was paid around £22,000 for the two-hour gig at Timepiece which had a 400-strong sell-out crowd.

The star requested Hennessey champagne and Grey Goose vodka upon his arrival at the club.

Snoop Dogg is thought to have been offered substantially more cash to play at other venues, including one on the island of Jersey, but he honoured his commitment to Exeter.

Owner of Timepiece nightclub, George Sloane, said: “When he agreed, I thought he must have got us mixed up with another club.

“But they had done all their research and knew it was used to be an old church, had seen the pictures of the old gravestones, knew it was a small club and apparently Snoop was really excited about an intimate evening.”

At around 3am, Snoop and his staff were driven from Newquay to Exeter by taxi driver, Nathan Guscott.

Guscott said: “When we collected him and he’d just come off stage he was buzzing from the festival, they were all in a good mood and having a laugh and a giggle, but seemed quite tired.

“Snoop seemed quite chilled out.

“When he got out he thanked me and shook my hand,” Guscott continued.

The cab driver added: “He was really pleasant and having been a fan of his from a young age, it was an honour to work for him.”

Debbie Hamnett, general manager at the Holiday Inn Express Exeter, said Snoop was the “perfect” guest and said the booking for several rooms had been made back in July.

‘We didn’t know it was him until he checked in. All the team were in awe and just thought, ‘wow, out of all the hotels in Exeter and he’s staying here.'”

Hamnett added: “He was very pleasant and very polite and happy go lucky. They left the rooms in an absolutely perfect state.”
