Yes, an instructor is free to limit what is allowed in their classes, and should. A poor performing pistol takes up allot of time from teaching when an instructor has to stop range time to deal with a problem pistol.

Again, I've never heard of a range not allowing a hi point.

I'd be interested in getting a phone number for a few of these ranges so that I can call them and talk to them about this and see what they've experienced that led to that decision.

Seems to me that "a lot of ranges" are mis-informed on Hi-Point pistols. True they are butt ugly. But they are a simple design and IMO are pretty reliable. Let's put it this way I'd rather have a HiPoint pistol than no pistol at all.
I mean look at Taurus. A lot of guys call them junk too. I have 3 Taurus pistols and 2 revolvers and never once has any failed for any reason at all.

Has anyone else heard of ranges banning them? Not classes, but actual ranges?

I absolutely love my 9mm carbine. 1000's of rounds through it without any jams or misfires. Just as accurate as any other high priced 9mm carbine.
