    I apparently made a mistake by clicking on a 14 day advance reservation for Days Inn & Suites that is non-cancelable. Just after I made the reservation, I read some pretty awful reviews so I made a reservation at the Park Vue Inn, but I can't get my money back from Days Inn. Any ideas?

    I have stayed here many times. It is a basic hotel but it has always been clean & confrontable. The breakfast is one of the better ones I have seen for this type of hotel - Cereal, donuts, bread/toast, fruit, juice, coffee/tea.

    Call them up, explain the situation, but you have agreed to the terms and conditions of the hotel's booking policy, so I don't know what your chances are of getting the money back.

    Good luck

    I did this myself once when planning a vacation. I called back the same day explained my error. I explained our vacation plans are still not definite and I accidentally picked the wrong nonrefundable choice. They happily reversed the chargers. Be polite and call immediately.

    I have to agre with abwdreaming here. Time is of the essence. I once accidentally booked a rental car (via my husband's account) for my dad IN my husband's name on Hotwire. I called immediately, they were not pleasant about it, but they did let us cancel/rebook the reservation (in a lower car class, but for the same price) in my dad's name instead. I called within minutes of making the reservation.

    I was very polite, owned my mistake and asked if there was any way they could cancel the reservation. After two refusals, I suggested that since our reservation was only for one night, they would probably be able to rent the room at a higher rate than the discounted rate that I had accidentally accepted. Without another word she said, "Your cancellation number is xxxxx." It must have been pixie dust. Thanks, everyone!
