There's a cold place in hell for whoever thought of resort fees. Just when you think you've got your vacation budget under control, boom! There they are, tacking on an extra charge for 'amenities' you didn't even know existed. It's like they're saying, "Hey, you didn't use the room phone or the 'state of the art' fitness room? Well, enjoy paying for them both!" Next thing you know, you're shelling out extra cash for Wi-Fi and daily newspapers, when you haven't read a newspaper in 5 years. It's nonsense!
I'm convinced that it's only going to get worse. Like in the future, you will be paying a "Sunbathing Fee" or "Breathing Fee" if your resort feels like the quality of the air they are providing is just too good to be free. Actually, the air is so clean that this fee will just be non-negotiable. I once had to pay a non-negotiable, 15$ "Entertainment Fee" in a hotel I stayed in a couple of years ago. When I asked what my entertainment fee was for, they said "Did you not have a TV in your room, sir?" Can't argue with that!
Appreciate the hospitality, Red Roof
