If you didn’t like your stay at the Union Street Guest House in Hudson, N.Y., you should keep your thoughts away from the keyboard.

According to the New York Post, the hotel charges former guests $500 for negative reviews.

“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.”

If the poster takes down the review, they get their money back.
