We were about to book a room through Trip Advisor with the Best Western in crescent city. We called their reservation line to clarify he room type and we were told by the reservation agent that the room rate may not be honored by the hotel when booked through a third party website like Trip Advisor. We called the hotel directly and they verified that yes, they have the choice to charge us more if they wish, even if we prepaid a non refundable rate. They said they usually honor the rate but not always. Is this common practice in this area? I’m rather concerned about all my reservations now. I travel a lot throughout the Midwest and Mountain west region and have never heard of this! Thanks in advance for any feedback.
