I stayed there last year and liked it. I did not notice the creaky floorboards; maybe they were fixed or maybe they weren't creaky near my room. I did walk around and the place was a bit of a maze....

A double-charge happened to me a few years back. Actually, it was three charges for two stays, and the hotel rep got really snotty about insisting "You stayed here twice." Well, yes, but I got...

I'll take your word for it. It makes sense that if you authorize a charge (as in allow your spouse to use it) and pay the bill, it's allowed. But then what is the point to having Authorized Users?
