    I stayed at the Hotel California a couple of times and this did not happen.

    "Last thing I remember, I was
    Running for the door
    I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
    'Relax' said the night man,
    'We are programmed to receive.
    You can check out any time you like,
    But you can never leave!"

    That's one of the reason why I either pay using my cc directly to the establishment or go through Expedia. No tour operators for me. I have heard way too many nightmare stories.

    While the post is a bit suspect as others have pointed out it does happen. Majestic Mirage is newer resort and from what I have heard is a very nice resort. Some people do not come financially prepared. The trip was prepaid and they may only carry enough cash to get through the vacation. Maybe no cc or limited spending left on cc. I would imagine this would be total nightmare for some, especially in another country.

    3rd party - you pay the agent - the agent doesn't pay the hotel - the agent owes the $$$ but the hotel expects payment.

    The voucher then is just paper.............report the agent - if they don't belong to a reputable association you're ****ed - just pay up and put it down to experience.

    If it looks like an absolutely amazing deal it's likely a scam.

    If the receipt was from the hotel/you booked direct another story but I expect you went through a third party/agent.

    Of you travel to a foreign country and are ill prepared for the "what ifs" then you should go to Coney island or Daytona Beach and splurge at Red Lobster.

    Many things going on here. Issue was checking in not out. To check in hotels is different.
