Q: What can i do to get my money back from hotel that has charged me taxes after 30 days consecutively in being a resident?
I have the receipt from the time I started living here. I believe they are messing with the books. My receipt says taxes was off but I'm paying the same price plus 25 dollars more. The owner raised the rent during the race. I do not know what avenues to take to get my money or how to start the process. I do believe i was taken advantage of. Thank you for your time.
A: If you have a written contract covering your extended stay both you and the hotel are bound by the terms of the written contract. And if the contract was for 30 days the hotel can raise your room rate on day 31 going forward. Why? Because under most state laws hotels can change their room rates at will (unless there is a contract governing the rates); and most hotels will usually do it whenever they start getting booked up--like for a big football game or similar public event that attracts people who live in other cities.
