This Complimentary Bottle Of Water From Best Western Costs $3. Huh?

Best Western knows that hotel customers hate trumped up fees for minor perks, which is why they kindly offer this complimentary bottle of Poland Spring for only $3.

I noticed this water bottle in my room last weekend and couldnt help but laugh/snap some pics and email them to The C. Since when does “complimentary” mean “we will charge you 3 dollars for this tepid bottle of water if you open it’? I guess I should be thankful, because this misleading behaviour enabled me to pilfer bottles off the housekeeping cart without feeling guilty.
