Is it egal to give me a 14% rent increase with just 36 days notice?

They offered me 3 different rent prices for terms of stay and since we decided not to stay, the lease defaults into a month-to-month. However the month-to-month rent increase is 14%. Is this legal to not give us 60 days notice for this (no set amount of month-to-month increase listed in the lease)?
