Royal Rip Off!
Initally we thought we got a great deal on a great hotel. We booked through priceline and bid low winning the room for a great price but boy were we in for a surprise when all the additional fees were tacked on. Of course there was the infamous "resort fee" upon arrival. Then I was surprised to find that they charge $50 for a fridge or microwave. Budget hotels provide you with those amenities at no cost to you. You can buy a microwave for that price. Next, the breakfast buffet. First off it is pricey at $12.95 per person and then to top it off they automatically charge you 18% gratuity. On a buffett. The waiter brought us a glass of juice and we never saw him again. You don't tip 18% on a buffett. Next, the WIFI. No free wireless internet either. Another perk most budget motels provide but not the Royal Plaza. $10 per day. Yup! Are you adding this all up? LOL!
Last but certainly not least, to top off my stay. The sign by the shuttle that directed you where to go to catch the shuttle back to the hotel after park closure instructed guests to wait in space #86 (not sure the exact number) so there we were at midnight standing in the middle of the parking lot waiting for our bus and nothing. Luckily, I decided (after waiting until there were hardly any people left at the Magic Kingdom) to ask another bus driver if we were in the right place. Low and behold, we were not. Not even close. So.... had I not asked we would have been stranded in the middle of the night with what would have probably been a $50+ cab fee because their signs are wrong.
Good news is the staff did apologize and guess what, they waived several of the above listed hidden fees. :) I sure hope they have fixed that sign because I was there with my children and husband but all I could think of was being a single mother in the parking lot at midnight waiting for a bus that was never going to come. :(
