A series of prostitution and drug deals have lead to a national chain pulling it's name from a local hotel.

Red Roof Inn says it's pulling it's brand from the location on Queen City Drive near Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.

Fox 46 found crews taking down signs Thursday. Federal agents say that the hotel was a hot spot for a number of drug deals and prostitution rings, some involving girls who were under the age of 18.

Officials from Red Roof's corporate office say it's working with federal authorities and contacting current guests of the Inn to be moved to another hotel in the area.
