Got to vent. I believe in the free enterprise system

[1]
Sep 9, 2018, 6:57 PM

and I realize most hotels/motels increase their rates if there is a nearby popular event that will cause more demand than supply. But, my son has a freshman daughter at Clemson this year. Next weekend is “Parents Weekend” and they want to attend. Rather than going over Friday, driving back to Greenville after the evening events, then getting up Saturday morning in order to go to our noon game, they decided to get a room in Clemson for Friday night. Here’s my major #####...they started with Hampton Inns, then tried others...$500 a night!!

I”m old, but I never thought I would see the day where a motel room in Clemson, SC would cost $500!

I know our state has a scalping law, but does it just apply to tickets?

Yep. I ran into this last year. Price of success.***

Supply and demand at work. I've found the Greenville area motels/hotels to be a lot more affordable and not so far away as to be a burden.

Supply and demand rarely works in the consumer's favor

these days. If demand goes low, they shrink the supply.

Yes, it is definitely bad. I keep wondering, who is paying for these rooms, and often with a three night minimum? I have to assume most of the fan base is still driving distance from home. But is is extreme.

Booking.com has 5 rooms left at Courtyard Clemson for $129***

Game is at 3:30 this week, so it may not be too bad to just go in the morning instead of paying the crazy prices.

Doesn’t change the fact that the price of hotel rooms are crazy, but wanted to make sure you guys knew there are a few more hours to get there!

Also, not sure what is still available now, but in the future if they know of their plans with enough lead time, airbnb and vrbo can get them into a nearby house, apt, or even lakehouse for much less than a hotel room.

America was built on price gauging and it offers the more affluent members of society the opportunity to purchase tickets without having to wait in line behind the poors. If you Socialists want free stuff, move to Sweden and go to ice hockey games instead.

For the sake of humanity, and all that is good, please stay out of the Metaverse.

Well, the Governor has already enacted the Anti-Price Gouging Law for the State of S.C. due to Hurricane Florence. The law covers lodging, as well as gas and consumer goods. May be a bit of a stretch, but could they provide proof that their current rate for lodging is their standard rate for any other time of the year??

To me, driving from Greenville is an easy trip. That would be a no-brainer for me, and I'm old as dirt. But, to each his own I guess. Sometimes convenience dictates the decision, and that might be your case.
