Being that one really drunk guy gets me a lot of feedback after weddings. Apparently Union Street Guest House in Hudson, New York gets a lot of negative performance reviews as well – at least enough to charge $500 to anyone who writes a bad review.
On the hotel’s website, there is a policy that states the hotel will fine wedding guests $500 if they choose to leave a negative review online. Additionally, a $500 charge will be taken out of the deposit on file for the wedding. In other words, the hotel is also charging the father of the bride for your feedback.
You, as a rational person, could imagine people went ape shit. So, in response to a flurry of angry one star reviews on Yelp, Union Street Guest House responded, “LOL JK.”
None of the Yelp commenters believe that the policy was posted as joke. Probably because a Yelp user shared an email from said hotel regarding said policy, “Please note that your recent review of our inn will cost the wedding party that left us a deposit $500. This money be charged [sic] via the deposit they have left us unless/until it is removed.”
The Yelp users have been going bananas all day issuing a flurry of one star reviews and expressing their disapproval of the policy in the most hurtful word combinations available within the constraints of the English language.
The hotel should just be lucky that they don’t have to deal with the PGP commenters. You animals show no mercy.
