A $150 deposit was required upon check-in. This is in addition to the cost of the room. Things like this need to be communicated clearly before a reservation is made.

The deposit is listed on the website that you booked through. I am also sorry you feel the deposit warranted a 1 out of 5 on your stay. Hope you stay well and safe.
