hotel or inn shall post in a public and conspicuous place and manner in
the office or public room, and in the public parlors of such hotel or
inn, a printed copy of this section and sections two hundred and two
hundred and one, and a statement of the charges or rate of charges by
the day and for meals furnished and for lodging. No charge or sum shall
be collected or received by any such hotel keeper or inn keeper for any

charged actually remained at such hotel or inn, nor for a higher rate of
charge for the use of such room or board, lodging or meals than is
