There are several casinos with associated hotels in Mesquite, Nevada.
Some of them advertise rooms "from $24.99" on billboards and signs at the casinos.
However, the rooms go for anywhere from $34.99 to $54.99 if you just walk-in.
Apparently you have to have made a phone reservation to get the lowest price. So, why advertise the lowest price right at the door?
We said the words "false advertising" and the clerk responded that the word "from" on the billboards makes it not false. Yeah right.
There were almost no cars in the parking lots on Monday night when we stopped there. Maybe it's the economy. Maybe it's shady business practices. We certainly don't believe in the truthfulness of these establishments and will not frequent them.
We ended up staying at a very nice Best Western there for $62. Yes, we will pay more to avoid doing business with liars.
