The world of Reddit is one you do not want to mess with, and the latest exaple of that happened early Monday morning. Redditor ‘Valarauca‘ posted a link to an article which showed that a hotel was charging $500 for a bad review on Yelp.
According to Page Six:
The Union Street Guest House, near Catskills estates built by the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers, charges couples who book weddings at the venue $500 for every bad review posted online by their guests.
“Please know that despite the fact that wedding couples love Hudson and our inn, your friends and families may not,” reads an online policy. “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.”
Needless to say, the folks of Reddit were not pleased and took to the hotel’s Yelp page to add a few reviews of their own. You can check out the numerous terrible reviews HERE and the following is just a sample of the Internet gold that was mined:
