  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

All was okay until I checked out and they added fees to my stay per night they said a lot of hotels are doing it - this left a nasty taste in my mouth as up till now Expedia has always charged all applicable fees upfront. I complained and all the checkout clerk could say was do you want to use the card on file. It looks like a good price until the end! Be warned
