You know, it always seems to be the same thing. The people leaving the most turgid, rage filled reviews on a property are usually people you wouldn't even let in the front door of your own home. Tha... more

Owner Response
twinsbaybw, Public Relations Manager at Twins Bay Inn, responded to this review
Dear Perijae304, We are truly sorry for the inconvenience that you may have experienced. We have checked our reservation systems and it seems that you did make your reservation through booking.com and those charges that you are staying are from booking.com. I have learned in the past that it is better to book directly with any hotel so that you are guaranteed the room and no overcharges have been made. We understand that it takes time and effort to earn money, but it was not our intention to double charge or quadruple charge. Please contact Booking.com and see if they can resolve your issue. If you still can't, please contact the hotel and inform them of your dilemma to resolve this matter. Again, we are truly sorry for any inconvenience that you have experienced. Sincerely, The Staff at Best Western El Rancho
