Additional Notes

Complaint: At 11:15pm on 9/27 my financee and I called to make a reservation. We paid for 1 room for 2 nights over the phone - the cancellation policy was never clearly stated over the phone. At 8:00am on 9/28 (not 9 hours later) we called to cancel the reservation due to circumstances out of our control. They did not even have our reservation for 1 business hour. The woman we spoke with at 8:00am on 9/28 put us on hold for 5 minutes, came back, and said "you're all set". Approximately 2 and 1/2 hours later, another woman called and said that she was charging us for a room for one night. We were surprised, as this was not stated over the phone on 9/27 or earlier that morning when we made the cancellation. Since we were unaware of the cancellation policy at the time of booking, it was clearly stated that we were "all set", we did not have the reservation for even 9 hours, we did not have the reservation during business hours, our reservation was not preventing anyone from making a reservation (there were several open rooms), we would like the charges associated with the room removed from our banking account - effective immediately.

Desired Settlement: We simply would like a full refund.

Business Response: I spoke with the answering service and the woman that initially took the customers call and was told she clearly stated that she does not cancel reservations she can only send the message to the hotel that a customer needs assistance. When she said “you’re all set” she was saying that the message was sent to the hotel. 

When I received the message from the service I called the customer and told him that there was a one night cancelation policy that would be charged to the room.  He then went on to say that he was planning on coming up to the area in a few weeks and would be booking with us at that time.  
I told the guest that I was happy they were thinking of planning another trip and would be happy to apply the cancelation fee to their stay in a few weeks.  The gentleman then got upset and said he didn’t know why we couldn’t just cancel the reservation for no charge and threatened to write a bad review and never stay here if I did not comply with him.  

The gentleman then went on and told me that his was unable to make his flight due to the weather and how other hotels have no cancelation policies and he is always able to cancel reservations a couple hours before check-in. I explained to him that every hotel has a cancelation policy as did his airline reservation.  He then told me that he was taking a private plane for the weekend so there was no fee to cancel.  I tried to meet the customer half way by only charging him 50% of the room rate.  

I feel that all efforts were made to assist the customer even applying the cancelation fee to another stay which then would void out this current cancelation fee. However, to remove any ill-will I have refunded the guest. 

Consumer Response: I have reviewed the response submitted by the business and have determined that the response does satisfy my issues and/or concerns in reference to complaint.
