Oh boy. I work at a hotel so I can relate to you and the person working. Personally, I think it would be in their best favor to just let your service dog into the hotel without such a bug fuss. It really doesn't take that much to clean a "pet room" and have no evidence that a pet was even in there...so for them it really SHOULDN'T be a big deal. We allow dogs at our hotel, and there is RARELY a problem with past pets affecting guests. So whoever is in charge of those rules needs to re-evaluate them, and if there are any problems you should contact the owners or hotel chain and let them know about your concern.
But just to be safe I would bring something along for proof- whether it's a doctor's note or whatever. Do you have any training certificates or anything? More often than not, the people who are working at the desk don't make the rules. The fact that anyone can say they have a service dog and abuse that makes me sick, but it happens, and that's probably why they want some sort of "proof". Depending on the management and ownership, things can be quite strict and the person may just be following rules to the best of their abilities becasuse they don't want to lose their job. Hopefully they were not being RUDE to you, but rather trying to let you know of their policy. There's definately a nice way to do things and a not so nice way.
