I booked this hotel on the rewards program ascociated with the hotel. When I booked the room I was told that I needed to present a credit card and ID as proof of identity when I arrived at the hotel but that nothing would be charged to my card. When I arrived at the hotel however, The clerk told me that he would need to place a $250 charge on my card which he would refund in the morning. I know for a fact it takes 3 business days for holds to fall off from a credit card account so that was also a little but questionable. Having less than $250 in available credit on my card I was turned away for my free rewards night room. They also refuse to return my reward points for the room I never used.
What a scam! Isn't it illegal to charge a guest until checkout?
Any way I had to drive back to my home in Youngstown about 3 hours away. I reccomend that people stay away from this hotel unless you want to risk fouling up your credit card accounts.
