I was just booking a hotel room and the advertised price was $100 a night, great! Go through the booking process enter all my info and right at the end there is a Mandatory $20/day fee apparently to cover amenities like, wifi, pool, gym etc.

This means the room is $120 a night! I have no problem with this, if the original advertised price was $120 I wouldn’t have thought twice about it. Why do you need to lie to me and then spring the extra fee at the end? If the hotel wasn’t so conveniently located to the event I was attending I would seriously have canceled the transaction and picked another hotel.

and you’re right - unless i get to opt out of using those services and then not having to pay, $100 a night is a lie

hotels, airlines etc also do it with all the taxes - leaving them out
gas stations dont
