Check out this response to a previous posting, in which the writer complains about the practice of overbooking hotel rooms on the assumption that there will be cancellations.
It sounds from the tone of the posting that he or someone he knows has recently been turned away from a Travelodge, despite having booked and pre-paid for a room there:
Are we to conclude that Travelodge is in the business of entering into contracts with its clients, which it knows it cannot fulfill? I am awaiting a response to an emailed request and personal phone call to the manager of the offending Travelodge.
Has this person been unlucky or ill-treated? Or is this standard and fair practice? let us know what you think.
