BEWARE – SLEAZY SURCHARGE
Econo Lodge, 2480 Lucky Lane, Flagstaff, AZ
September 28, 2012
Yes, there is actually a $4.00 "surcharge" added to your bill in addition to the regular room rate. The Econo Lodge owner, Dino Duldson, claims "This is for utilities surcharges imposed by local utility supplier." When questioned regarding the charge he states it is added to the bill for use of lights, TV and water. Don't know about you, but I sort of expect a room to have at least lights and water. Maybe you could argue an adjustment if you don't flush the toilet and skip the shower?
Yes, he did remove the "surcharge" from the bill after a long dissertation that I have no idea what it takes to run a hotel... and my suggesting that while that is possibly so, I do know how and where to make my dissatisfaction known.
Aside from that, the place looks fairly decent from the outside... inside the rooms are starting to look tired and showing signs of wear and deferred maintenance.
Sorry Dino, but my next stay in Flagstaff will hopefully be at a motel that offers lights, TV and water in the room rate... and a little less sleazy billing practices.
