Years ago, OP and now-wife vacationed in Asheville, staying in cabins. She, a local, enjoyed revisiting her hometown and connecting with friends and family.
Followed rental rule, invited friends briefly during Asheville trip, no issues.
Charged $200 by rental company for brief friend visit; despite clarifications, revenge plans in motion.
Left 1-star reviews from 8 people, dropped company rating to mid-3 stars; company apologized and sought removal of bad reviews within hours.
Disputed $200 charge, got refund and $100 off next stay for removing negative reviews.
See what people had to say!
Apparently, making sense took a vacation!
Ring cameras: the ultimate overnight detectives. Time-stamps spill the tea on guest visits—no secrets, just surveillance chic!
Vacation business motto: Work's the real exotic, so let's stick to blaming the workload.
Sometimes it's about sending a pricey memo!
Arguing with stupidity is futile.
Bullying pays? Spoiler: it doesn't.
Not just that, but if your guest enjoyed the experience, she may rent there at some time. Why shoot yourself in the foot for free marketing?!
Caught on camera, but she stuck to the repairman tale. Probably went to bed muttering about 'Respecting policies!'—the logic lullaby.
Sticking to 'Clearly not a misunderstanding'—they've turned misunderstanding into an art form in the hospitality saga!
She thought entering equals occupying—cabin chaos logic!"
Hey Karen, last request: a 2,000-word essay on 'Occupancy.' Consider it a crash course in common sense!
Apology only came after bad reviews, not for the lies. Sweet revenge for unnecessary drama—push too hard, face the consequences!
Like OP should!
Nothing ruins 'happily ever after' like unnecessary chaos, after all!
Arguing 'occupant' vs 'overnight'—because apparently, it's not a cabin debate without a vocabulary showdown.
In this digital era, the humble review wields immense power, proving that even small voices can echo loudly against injustice. Our couple's story serves as a reminder that in the age of online transparency, customer service isn't just a policy, it's the cornerstone of a business's reputation.
