False and/or Misleading Advertising RE: Location
Posted May 17, 2016 on Hotels
When a hotel is advertised as 25 miles from a university and you are in town for a graduation from that university, one presumes (since auto driving is involved) that the 25 mile advertisement does not refer to distance "as the crow flies." For guests grounded in reality (i.e., those driving a cars), it is false and misleading to discover that this middle of nowhere hotel necessitates that we allow a one hour drive time to get to the university because the only highway(?) is a two lane county road. The hotel itself was OK and the staff were friendly, but I never would have booked this hotel had they been honest about the distance to the university. Lesson learned: Read the fine print and then double check with a map for accuracy.
