"Hidden Fees and Dishonesty" Royale, Isle Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Basaic

Royale, Isle Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 0 photos

When we arrived back at the harbor in Grand Portage after the trip to Isle Royale, we had a rude surprise waiting for us. There was an envelope on the windshield with our tag number on it that said we owed a $4 parking fee. There was no mention of this fee in the brochure about the boat ride, nor did they mention it before we left. The fee is not that much, I just felt this was a rude, dishonest, underhanded way to conduct business.

    yeah, I was just gonna say, $4 isn't much, but it's about the principle. Thanks for mentioning this.

      Yes, I would have been willing to pay the fee; but don't wait until after the person has parked there. Very dishonest.
