Complaint: To whom it may concern, I would like to express my complete dissatisfaction for the customer service I received at the Pendleton Americas Best Value Inn. You truly dont get what you pay for here! My sons ************************* ******** team made it to the *************** Tournament that was hosted in Pendleton OR. In our excitement, our team quickly began to research hotel accommodations and the best deals where our players and families could all stay as a team. We went to the *********************** website and the ***************************** website and noticed a number of hotels that were offering discounted rates to teams of the tournament. We were considering the ******** and then came across the discounted price quote of $69.99, plus tax at the Pendleton Americas Best Value Inn. We called to confirm that price and the front desk politely confirmed that we could stay for $69.99 per night, plus tax. Our entire team booked rooms at this hotel (at least 17 rooms were booked in all). Each family booked, paid and arrived at different times. When my husband checked in, he was verbally told $69.99 per night, plus tax and then slipped a bill to sign, which he did. Over the next couple days word started to spread that some were charged $69.99 and some were charged $79.99. When we looked at the bill, we noticed we were charged $79.99, plus tax and not the $69.99 told on the phone or at check in. One family member that had come up later than everyone else, was actually charged $99.99, plus tax. Another guest, not with our group checking in at the same time received a rate of $42.99 for the same night. As I went to the front desk to try and reconcile what I thought would be an honest mistake on their end, the lady would not even look at me and said it was $79.99 and we signed the bills, so they would not adjust. I was frustrated, but left to talk to the others in my group to research further. Everyone started to share similar stories and confirmed their bills were different than what was quoted, even at check in. The next morning, myself and two other moms went in to try and resolve the issue again. We were again greeted with the same response and then the owner showed up. He started yelling at us and telling us to leave the property if we were unhappy. We told him we were customers, trying to resolve a discrepancy on our bills. He said we were only upset because we lost our ******** game. He then said he could change his prices from minute to minute and we should have looked at the bill before we signed it (agree). When we said we trusted that we received the rate we were quoted on the phone and at check, he said oh well! When we pointed to his sign that said they offer a price match guarantee and asked him to make the adjustment, he said he did not have to. It was his decision to charge us $79.99 per night and that was that. We asked why he would do this to a ************* Team on a budget? We asked why he would falsely advertise a price to get us to go there. He said we could have decided to stay somewhere else when we checked in, if we did not like the price. Who is going to pack up and go somewhere else at the last minute with kids in tow after your card has already been charged? A few seconds later a police officer arrived. While we were completely embarrassed, we were actually relieved to have someone of authority onsite. We went outside and explained our situation to the officer and he informed us that he has been called to the Pendleton Americas Best Value Inn before and of the many places to stay in Pendleton, unfortunately this hotel is not one he would recommend. We explained how we came to find this hotel and he apologized and told us to dispute the charges with our credit card company, report them to the Better Business Bureau, the ******************* and the ***********************. He was extremely helpful and we all went back to our rooms and began to pack up. As we did this, a worker was hiding in a vacant hotel room video-taping our children playing wiffle ball in the parking lot. The children all started to report this to their parents and were scared, so rather than go back to the front office and complain or call the police, we all made the decision to pack up quickly and leave before check out. I am pretty sure it is illegal to video tape a minor child without parent consent. We also felt compelled to take pictures of the hotel rooms as we left them in fear of additional charges that may be added fraudulently to our cards. We have reported this experience to the hotel chain, the ***************************** and ***********************, as well as some surrounding businesses which have all agreed not to advertise their services in the future.
Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Other (requires explanation) I would like to be reimbursed for the difference of $69.99 plus tax and $79.99 plus tax. Not for the money, but for the principle and for the poor customer service we received.
