i found a hotel i wanted to stay at. The website stated rates were $69-$99. There was no option to view which rates applied to which days. There was an online form to fill out. i filled out the form which asked for dates and payment info. i assumed i would get an email giving me the rates and option to book. However the email i got back was confirming that i booked the rooms at the highest rate. Is this normal practice for a non chain hotel? i was surprised the hotel didn't list the rates per season or events etc on the site. i like to search around for a good hotel at a good price.
Any insight into this? The hotel looks ok, i just wonder if i could get it for a lower price if i had known the rate season.
