My wife and I decided that we wanted to spend the night in a hotel but we’re on a budget so I figured I could find something nice within a specified price. I surfed the web for about an hour and found the Rodeway Inn. So I made us a reservation and we started to pack up somethings for ourselves to hold us over until tomorrow.
We finally pull up to the Rodeway Inn and we’re greeted by an, older, middle eastern man. I told him that we had a reservation for the night and he pulled it up right on the computer. I gave him our credit card and he swiped it, turned to me and said i’m sorry it’s been rejected. Confused at this news I asked him to try again. He replied,” it’ll cost you 50 cents”, I said,” ok.” So he tried again and he still said it’s not accepting the card.
I thought that was strange considering I had just purchased something before we got to the hotel with that same exact card so I know that the card works, and more importantly I know how much money is on the card too. He asked me if i’m sure I have enough money on the card and I replied, ” of course I do. I already made a reservation and if I don’t sign in to the hotel i’m losing out on 53 bucks. I asked him if I can cancel my reservation and he naturally said no.
At this point i’m getting a little pissed off because I feel like this guy is trying to cheat me out of my money so I said swipe the card again, and this time manually enter the numbers. He refused, he said, ” it doesn’t matter if I do that the result will be the same.” He then added, ” If you fail to book in with us by tomorrow morning then we’ll have to charge your card and you’ll lose your money.”
I said, ” so i’m basically paying for a room I can’t sleep in?”
He smiled and replied , “yes.”
I wanted to jump across the counter and kick him in the face. Instead of doing that and risking an assault charge I simply walked out the Hotel, called my card, and told them to block Rodeway Inn from accessing my funds. This guy tried to cheat me out of my money and thought it was ok. That is the last time i’ll go to the Rodeway Inn and i’m warning you guys against people like him.
If you live in the Fort Pierce area then don’t go to the Rodeway Inn. Thanks for reading guys. Follow us if you liked this, and I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.
