Resort Fees Under Scrutiny
Resort fees are under scrutiny from the Federal Trade Commission according to an article in the Washington Post.
We were the first to take a stand against greedy resort fees in Beavers Bend State Park several years ago. Now, a few cabin management companies in Broken Bow have followed our lead and wave the “No Add-On Fees” flag.
Wyndham Worldwide is facing a lawsuit from customers. Consumers are sick and tired of paying needless fees. I’ve heard a plethora of feedback from Beavers Bend luxury cabin guess and they echo our sentiments…
Resort and add-on fees are wrong.
After I began writing about resort fees in Beavers Bend a few years ago, a few new terms were formed. Hot tub, incidental, cleaning…we’re due for a new fee name soon.
Here’s a quick refresher course…
- Never pay hot tub fees
- Never pay resort fees
- Never pay cleaning fees…unless you leave the cabin untidy.
- Never pay firewood fees
- Never pay incidental fees
- Never pay insurance fees
“Resort fees allow a hotel to advertise one low price but charge a much higher price to a guest when they arrive at the hotel. It is truly shameful behavior,” according to @KillResortFees.
Their website has a wealth of information for the novice to seasoned traveler.
When shopping for a luxury cabin in Broken Bow, pay attention to more than simply the advertised price. Dig through the terms and conditions and look for these unnecessary resort fees.
