Um, am I the only one who got bait/switched by Slickrock?

I reserved on January 29th, and got a confirmation with a total.
Then on April 23rd I got a reminder/confirmation again... only the total had gone up by about $70 for a 10 night stay and I didn't notice at the time.

I just noticed this today while looking back to see how to split site costs.

Anybody else get re-priced or have two confirmations with different costs? WTF?

EDIT: I've e-mailed them asking for a resolution (no answer by phone). Their website has a disclaimer that rates may be different at check in... WOW, guess they got me there.

Andy, that sucks. The motel on wheels that was parked for two nights next to BVB's space wound up with a bill for over $1000 for those two nights. The driver was trying to figure out what the hell was going on and was getting pretty frustrated. There were 24 folks on the bus and the bill kept going up every time the driver checked with the office. I guess what I'm saying is it could be worse!

Yea, I brought this up with Greg and a couple other folks. Megan, being the level headed person that she is convinced me not to go in and raise hell. Several folks were peeved. They definitely stuck it to us and made quite a bit of money on our event. In the future, perhaps we should negotiate a CM rate upfront so that their extortionist behavior does not reflect poorly on us.

We actually tried to raise the point of some type of group rate with them since we do fill'er up. I wasn't the one who handled it but I think the reply was: no reply.

I can't believe they got everyone, that's pretty frustrating to say the least!

I just checked my bill and the total charges and it was pretty close to what I expected. Slickrock is pretty miserable overall, but this year we rented the large bumper pull trailer with two pop-outs and it was actually pretty nice: no cotton, AC when needed, inside potty, refrigerator, etc.

I am surprised that CrusieMoab gets no monetary consideration from Slick Rock given the draw.

Yikes! To be sure, their rates are around double what they were a couple years ago (going by memory rather than documentation), but yeah they are a lot more than they used to be. On the way out I asked about a AAA discount and the person manning the front desk said the discount did not apply for dates for "events".

I have tried for the past couple years, unsuccessfully, to get us a discount for Cruise Moab. I would speculate that if they fill anyway, there is no incentive.
