In September, I reserved a room at the Lacey area Super 8 to stay one night en route to Portland, Oregon with my husband. After reading reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to cancel and book at La Quinta instead. Under their cancellation policy, clearly stated and this is not an issue, I had until September 6 at 6 PM to cancel without penalty. On September 3 at 6:57 PM, I called and cancelled my reservation. I spoke to "Melanie." I received a cancellation number, which I wrote down along with my other notes. Lo and behold, when the AMEX bill arrived, there was a charge for this room in which I never stayed. I appealed to AMEX to dispute the charge. They were told there was no such cancellation number, that Melanie had not been on duty that date, and that I never cancelled the reservation. Someone is lying here, and it is not me.
I really do not understand this way of doing business. Super 8 may get away with stealing my money (I'm not through fighting yet), but for the rest of my life, I will badmouth not only this location, but any and all Super 8 locations throughout the world, in writing and verbally, to whomever will listen. Is that worth $80 to them? I'm also very disappointed with AMEX and its inability to defend my claim. I would love to hear from any travelers/TripAdvisor members out there who have been able to prevail against Super 8. Your suggestions and help will be welcomed and appreciated.
