I booked this hotel for a stay from September 30 - October 3 for the price of $446.75. After doing some research I found a cheaper hotel for half that price. I cancelled my reservation at the Holiday Inn on September 9. On their website it clearly states that you must cancel within 48 hours. I clearly cancelled with MORE THAN enough time. On September 30 I was charged $83.19. I called to find out if there was some sort of mistake and I was told that because it was a discounted rate I could not cancel without being charged for the first night. THAT IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!! DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS HOTEL. They are scammers and just looking to rip off the consumer. Needless to say I disputed the charge.
