They put an authorization on your credit card and charge you 72 hours before your check in date. If you use a debit card, it charges you that authorization amount.

Deposits are pretty typical for resort hotels, and authorizations turning into debit card charges are an annoyance at all hotels (you can't authorize a debit card - you either charge it or you don't).

I'll follow up with the reservations department to make sure they are doing the right thing per our contract.

I just pulled this out of our contract...

Deposit: Credit card authorization for the full cost of reserved hotel stay is to be given upon making the room
reservation, but full amount will not be automatically charged to the authorized credit card until 72 hours prior to arrival.

Cancellation: Reservations cancelled between date of booking, and 15 days from date of arrival will forfeit a $50.00
cancellation fee that will be charged to the authorized credit card. Cancellations within 14 days of arrival forfeit the entire
amount of the reserved hotel stay which will be charged to the authorized credit card. No refund for late arrivals, early
departures, no-shows, or downgrades.

Their contract is a little intense... But I'll be there in one if the TDI's
It is pretty intense. I'm used to the boilerplate corporate contract, but this resort and apparently most other resorts have a very different way of doing business. :confused: A learning experience, for sure! Either way, I'm comfortable with what has been negotiated in the grand scheme of things. :)

Crazy terms and conditions, but the instant charge seems not inconsistent with the text. What you failed to "negotiate" was the amount to-be-charged upon making the reservation. lol.

Hastings Campground:
A mere 13 miles from Newry (is that a town or a plantation barraks on the side of the road?), and $16 a night. Plain and simple. LOL.

"Located on Route 113 near the shore of Evans Brook in western Maine. It is situated in a rustic and remote part of White Mountain National Forest, not far from the town of Gorham, New Hampshire. Activities include fishing, hiking and mountain biking."

Bruce,

I followed up with Sunday River and the person you spoke with on the phone was unaware of our group arrangements regarding deposit and cancellation policy. The charges to your card will be reversed and the reservations staff is going to have a meeting today to make sure that everyone understands our event.

Sorry for the inconvenience! :)

I negotiated the amount that was to be charged upon making the reservation, but Paramedick slipped through the cracks. That won't be happening again, but thanks for playing. :rolleyes:

I think this is what I'm going to have to do - not really by choice but dictated by circumstances. $105+14% tax+resort fees per night becomes very spendy. Besides, I haven't camped in years and want to get back into it. :)

I thought you were going to get the 3-bedroom suite and run a TDIFest hostel! :D

It is indeed available (there is only one). I'm not sure how long it will remain available, so I'd recommend trying to lock it in before too much longer if you're interested in going that route.

If you'd prefer, there are also two 2-bedroom suites available. Each of those has a balcony (the 3-bedroom has two bay windows facing the mountain).

There is also a large mix of adjoining rooms of varying layouts - call reservations for more details.

I updated my first post for clarification on the tax and resort fee. Room rates are $105/night + 7% tax and 7% resort fee (+14% total) for a grand total of $119.70 per night. There was some confusion caused by my original wording, which made it look like it was 14% tax and a resort fee on top of that.

Awesome! As of Wednesday, we are half way through our room commitment. I'd like to remind folks that our room block pricing guarantee expires on the 9th. :)
