    Have to agree MVM. I seriously don’t understand motels that won’t at least match or better the online price. As managers we always tell our guests to have a look on line and then phone direct.
    I had a similar experience to yourself at a central Queensland motel. This was a large 56 room motel and I was a ‘walk in’ for them. The motel was obviously quiet (out of season) and I asked the price of the owner/manager and his reply was $150.00 per night. I told him that the online price was $125.00 and that as a motel manager myself I’d rather pay the motel direct and save them some commission also. His reply? “Take it or leave it, it’s $150.00 a night”

    We left it…..
