However the intent seems clear and the literal reading is nonsensical. So I wouldn't worry about a literal application per the original wording.
Why is it nonsensical? It could simply mean: There is a 1 night penalty for any cancellation. If you cancel less than 72 hours/before, the penalty s 100%.
