Hotel Sues Guest for Posting Scathing Review Published: May 23, 2014

Less than a month after an anonymous user posted a very unflattering review of a Lincoln City hotel, the hotel has filed a $74,500 defamation lawsuit in an attempt to stop the reviewer from posting again and driving away business, according to The Oregonian.

The Ashley Inn -- which is owned by the Lincoln City Lodging Limited Partnership -- is up in arms about an April 23 review that stated “laundry and housekeeping are either high or drunk” and “breakfast is nasty, the rooms are nasty,” according to the suit. The review also claimed that “the owner smokes weed” and “Jen front desk had phone sex with someone,” the suit states.

The critique appears to have been taken down. It was not on as of Wednesday. But, states the suit: “Defendant’s review was accessible to any person who visited TripAdvisor from a computer device in Oregon.”
