    I have stumbled upon this site showing Best Western Main Gate East for $19.99 per night. Has anyone actually stayed at this hotel for that rate? What was the hotel like? :goodvibes

    I have not stayed there, but the first 4-5 reviews I just read on tripadvisor were good. I think you found yourself quite a deal. Let us know the site you found, if you can.

    I clicked on the site and I believe it is a deal if you agree to attend a timeshare presentation. I read the fine print all the way on the bottom about the timeshare tour thats 90 minutes. HTH!!! :)

    Ok, I must not have read down far enough! Thanks!! I wondered if that was the "catch". :guilty: All of the excessive fine print is the first clue, eh? :rotfl:

    What happens at a timeshare presentation? Do they just show you around their vacation resort and see if you want to buy in? What happens if you tell the people showing you the resort that you have no intention of buying, that you came for the low hotel rate or free tickets?

    I've often wondered if you had to fake an interest for them or be honest.

    We have been on 2. Both times we were honest and told them although we might be interested in the future we weren't at the present time. They showed us around the resort. Took us back to discuss price and we again said not interested. They said OK here is your free gift ($100) Thanks for your time.
