For convenience and in the interest of saving some time and with the price of gas being over $4.00 in our area, i chose to stay AGAIN at the microtel in north springfield mo.
i checked in, presented my Military ID for the Military Rate.
the clerk went to apply the discount, but "there was a problem with the system and to talk to the person in the morning that could make the adjustment" Well, i did as recommended. And still the rate could not be discounted by that clerk. She took my number and told me that someone would call me later that day with what the issue was.
i got a call mid day and the person on the other end said that because the hotel was "booked out", there was a hard charge of like $62 or what ever it was and that since the hotel was sold out, the Military Rate could not be honored. I have stayed there on numerous occassions for convenience and i have a lot of choices in the area. I will no longer choose to stay at that property simply for the fact, if i would have known that there was a "hard rate" set, i would not have stayed and mossied to the next dive.More
