Has anyone ever experienced this fee? I am staying at Quality Inn, in Corsicana near Richland Chambers. I made my reservations online and checked in at the motel. While at my room, a gentleman walked up to me and told me there is a boat charging fee. I was never told about it before, and not when I checked in either. I don't think I am obligated to pay the fee. Has anyone else experienced this?

I have never seen that. I am willing to bet if you don't pay it then your charging cord will mysteriously get pulled out after you go to bed.

Absolutely not. Lady at Best Western at Fork tried to charge me $10 one time. I told her we have stayed there multiple times and never had to pay and that we would not stay if they charged us... She said “oh that’s ok I’ll just waive the fee. Not that big of a deal!” She was more than likely going to just pocket that money...

I've never heard of it. But I'm sure it will catch on just like park, wifi, and resort fees. I've literally seen resort fees in Vegas cost more than the room.

Nope never heard of that before. Check your paperwork and/or their website and see if there is a fee in writing. If it's not in writing them you don't have to pay. If it's in writing and now a policy of theirs then you're stuck paying it.

I figure that like the ramp fees. Someone is going to pay for that electricity, and if it's not included in their room charges they need to re-coup that money. I do think that $10 is a bit much, but I'd gladly pay $5 for the ability to charge my batteries at night.

I would go to the front desk and ask to see it in your agreement, they should have some sort of printed notice, like a pet fee would be.

offer to call the bbb while they look it up, the chains hate bad press.

and no, I would not pay as an extra fee, it should be absorbed in the room cost.

How much did they want? I don't know how much wattage your charger pulls, but it can't be much. I think you'd have to work pretty hard at it to use more than a dollar or two of electricity.

had this happen years ago at motel in nashville,tn....one of our guys pointed out to them that charging your batteries uses about as much electricity as turning the TV on...they didn't charge us....
I wouldn't mind paying a security charge if they would hire a security guard to patrol the parking lot at night...
