Allow me to tell you a story...a story about a group of riders and The Princess Motel of Maryville
!! This gets a bit long but it's worth you saving some $$$ and time!!!
Ok as many of you already know... WOS went to the GAP at the end of May to have a second annual trip. One of our members called around and got a good price on a bunch of motel rooms. We put in for 5 rooms. All was set.... so we thought!!!!
We drive down with no incidents. Get to the motel and Twisty and I go inside to pay. We were suppose to get the rooms for $212 for 6 nights. A good price for these lower quality rooms. We go inside and the POS behind the counter wants to charge us like $275 per room.
So we reluctantly pay the charge and go outside and tell everybody. They decide that a few are going to check out some other motels in the area. While we deal with this, we check out the rooms and they are not up to par. So we have a bait & switch and crappy rooms. Then the others find the Day's Inn down the street with better rooms for the same $275 per room. So we decide we are going to bounce. We've only been there for about 30 mins and nobody has unloaded anything or occupied the room.
So now the bad stuff starts... we go inside and polietly ask for a full refund because we didn't appreciate the bait & switch and weren't satisfied with the rooms. The POS says no refund. "His room cards say no refund!" We point out that it says no refund once the room has been ocupied for one day or one week. We haven't occupied them at all.
He says no!
So we call the cops... 2 Maryville cruisers show up and go inside to get the scoop. They come out and say "First off, we did the right thing by calling the cops. However, we picked about the worse motel in the city. The problem is that nothing criminal has occured. While we are 100% in the right, he tried to pursway the POS into issuing a refund so we can just go elsewhere, but the POS refused." The cop then suggest we take it up with the County Better Busincess Buerau and maybe a small claims court case.
The cops were awesome but they just couldn't do anything!!!
We just decide to bounce and claim the charges as fraud on the credit cards. Which we do. Now I have waited to put this in public print because of this matter. However, the banks have all filed in favor of us. We got all our money back and now it's time to spread the word!!
DON'T EVER EVER EVER EVER STAY AT THE PRINCESS MOTEL OF MARYVILLE!!!
They will rip you off for their crappy rooms and they are lieing, scum sucking, scam artests. Their sign out front says "Riders Welcome" what it should say is "Rider's Screwed for a minimal fee"!
