Gee, How Can This Possibly Go Wrong?
The New York Post has a story that the Union Street Guest House in Hudson, NY, fines couples $500 for every negative review posted online (on any website) by one of their guests. And, it will also fine you $500 if you’re staying there to attend a wedding at another venue in the area, but leave a negative review about your stay.
has supposedly had this policy on its website:
Please know that despite the fact that wedding couples love Hudson and our inn, your friends and families may not.
If you have booked the Inn for a wedding or other type of event anywhere in the region and given us a deposit of any kind for guests to stay at USGH there will be a $500 fine that will be deducted from your deposit for every negative review of USGH placed on any internet site by anyone in your party and/or attending your wedding or event. If you stay here to attend a wedding anywhere in the area and leave us a negative review on any internet site you agree to a $500 fine for each negative review.
