Thread: Why the Ripoff?

  1. #1

    Default Why the Ripoff?

    Anyone else feel like they're increasingly being taken advantage of by the locals?

    Who pays $400 a night for a $50 a night room? Every year (and I've gone to ALL of them) the Locals see greater and greater oportunity to jack up the prices for lodging...

    This year it's just 5 of us going...if we can get another 5, we can afford the $2,500 Luxury Condo we've stayed in for 5 years...otherwise, it's camping or staying in L.A.

    If it's $400 per night, then it's not really a $50 room, now is it?
