Eclipse Gouging Victim
Well, it happened to me today.
I made reservations for the upcoming August eclipse back in January 2016 at the Days Inn in Casper Wyoming. I confirmed the reservation in April 2017 and was about to confirm it again when I got the telephone call.
The ownership had changed (but the hotel is still a Days Inn) and the new proprietorship does not feel obligated to honor the old rate. I was offered a reduced price of about $300, given the going rate of $500, which I declined.
I used to be a frequent stayer of Days Inn (rewards member for years), so I placed a complaint with corporate customer service.
My plan "B" is being developed ...
I'm posting this as a warning to others -- be aware that this may also happen to you, as it did to folks elsewhere, since it is not illegal, just unethical (or as some might say, "It's just Good Business").
