Additional Notes

Complaint: I made a reservation for two nights over 4th of July only to be laid off from work. The reservation was well within the free cancelation time frame so I cancelled it on May 25th and was immediately e-mailed a refund confirmation. The e-mail clearly states that my credit card would be refunded but after 10 I still hadn't received the refund. Upon calling the motel I was told that I would in fact be receiving a check from the owner and that it should be arriving any day. After two weeks I called again and was told that I would be called back when they found out what was holding up the check. I called back two days later as I still hadn't heard back from them and was given a story about mail only being delivered to the owners once a week and that they were elderly. It's now been over a month since I received the cancellation confirmation e-mail and still no refund of any kind.

Desired Settlement: I pre paid for the first nights lodging and taxes, $163.50 and want it returned.
