Hotel in Hudson fines guests $500 for negative online reviews (Updated)

From Page Six:

“Please know that despite the fact that wedding couples love Hudson and our inn, your friends and families may not,” reads an online policy. “If you have booked the inn for a wedding or other type of event . . . and given us a deposit of any kind . . . there will be a $500 fine that will be deducted from your deposit for every negative review . . . placed on any internet site by anyone in your party.”

Yikes.

Update: This story made it to the front page of reddit, and the Union Street Guest House Yelp page is now paying the price. I guess providing your customers with an actual positive experience may be the best way to keep your Yelp rating good.
