    She bitched she has to look but she said start with these

    Can't understand how the Hampton inn at Tin lizzie casino in deadwood is charging 700 dollars for tonight
    In the middle of nowhere South Dakota just because it's Saturday night and there's a casino?
    This is just fucking ridiculous
    People visiting deadwood are not going to pay 700 dollars for a Hampton inn in their 350 sq foot rooms
    Outrageous
    Now these chain hotels are just throwing it against the wall to see what sticks

    Apparently they are. :confused: Call and see if there is a room open tonight. If not, then somebody paid the seven hundred. :cool:

    No one is paying 700 they might use 60000 Hilton points
    That doesn't answer where they get the balls to ask 700 a night in deadwood

    It's $323.00 on tripadvisor. Don't go to the hotel website. If you google it you can usually get the competing booking agents rates.

    yes, I knew to check at 6p-m, they arent going to not book rooms, so its down to 300 for tonight, like I saidl noone is going to pay 700, and that was their website as well as kayak, trivago, expedia, and all the rest of the booking sites when I posted before.

    iand it will be cheaper at the front desk if you go there now

    I cancelled my reservation at council bluffs ameristar because they were just asking to omuch for that area.....again....we all have choices....if they choose to lose patrons and overcharge....so be it....most dont pay for rooms at casinos, they are comped or some just go for that night on the town once every 6 months and dont worry about an extra 100 or 2. I get it. but Im not taking it.
    I can play somewhere else.

    4 winds new buffalo is asking outrageous amounts for the nights we want, so we wont book until that night. if they insist of killer rates, we will drive to another casino

    they must be using those democratic logarithms that try to predict how many people will want to come out those days.......so up the price to heaven....see who will pay.

    we are very discouraged by the antics of the casino hotels right now.....instead of trying to be fair...they are gouging since they know people are getting out and about in their cars once again post pandemic.....and so when they start to falter and eventually shut down...their disloyalty to patrons will teach them....

    Maybe you should tell your wife air travel is safer than driving as far as catching covid is concerned.

    There isn't a single verified case of someone catching covid from a flight. The jets all have excellent cabin filters that are changed on a regular basis. Meanwhile, when's the last time you changed the cabin filter in your car? If it's a newer car it has one somewhere that should be changed at least annually.

    Are there any "certified" cases of someone catching Covid from their car filter? :confused: If you got it, I doubt if there is any way to "certify" exactly where you got it.

    It's a convertible the air is filtered continuously
    At least 90 percent of the time

    it's not about the trip it's about exploring America
    As long as I'm healthy enough I want to see as much as I can from the ground
    It is t covid my wife just hates to fly

    I just had to change another ameristar reservation
    This one in Blackhawk
    I looked online the 2 nights were 65 dollars less 40 and 25 less price slashed plus
    5 bucks les tax hey whatever
    I called them the hotel cannot adjust online reservations or so she said they don't have the same deals
    So cancelled and rebooked
    I see this is the new game hotels postnpandemic are going to play so we won't book anything else until a couple of days in advance
    Only industry in USA that can charge whatever they want as long as they post it i
