Colonial Inn Complaint - Don't use Priceline when booking in Saint John New Brunswick
SAINT JOHN, NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA -- Hotel room was not all that clean, the breakfast buffet which cost extra consisted of cold foods which were meant to be eaten hot and watered down orange juice, the staff in the breakfast room were indifferent (it took some time to get the staff to quit chatting with each other or friends, long enough to accept our payment) and one was wearing a dirty white jacket. To top it off the price would have been cheaper if we had booked directly with the hotel than what we paid through Priceline. And even though we had already paid through Priceline, the reception staff insisted on putting another $150. on our Visa, which they assured us would not actually be charged to our account(and to date it has not been charged)....what is the purpose of this? The other thing to keep in mind, is, that when booking something in Canada, Priceline still bills in USD, so you could end up paying more that if you booked directly. Will not book anything in Saint John through Priceline, just in case we would get this hotel again.
