The inspector was paid $500 to inspect the house on your behalf, right?
And the inspector found a number of things that you wanted fixed before buying the house. Things that you felt were important enough that you weren't willing to take the seller's offer of doing some subset.

Seems to me that for $500 you got the information you needed and was a reasonable price.

If you still think you're not being treated fairly, call up another RE agent in the area. Ask them what happens if you get into a contract, have an inspection done, and the contract is terminated. Who pays for the inspection? I'd bet it's the person who ordered the inspection - which is you.
