New York hotel charges guests for bad reviews

If you’re planning a wedding in New York state, you might want to steer clear of posting bad reviews of a particular hotel if you have an unpleasant experience.

The “Union Street Guest House” hosts many guests of couples who book weddings there. But if one of those guests has something negative to say about their stay, the couple gets charged $500 for every bad review posted.

The hotel’s policy reads: “Please know that despite the fact that wedding couples love Hudson and our inn, your friends and families may not. If you have booked the inn for a wedding or other type of event and given us a deposit of any kind, there will be a $500 fine that will be deducted from your deposit for every negative review placed on any internet site by anyone in your party.”

If you’re faced with that situation, there is good news. You can get your money back if the review is taken down.
