Booking a hotel is frustrating
November 29, 2017 3:44am CST
Have you tried to book a hotel lately? I need to book hotels for my upcoming trip and I have noticed that even though there are reviews by so-called guests about the hotel, usually the reviews and photos don't represent the hotel accurately. This past summer I booked a hotel with a good rating but when I got there it was okay but not as nice looking as the photos and definitely not as amazing as the reviews said. Hence, I am hesitant and not sure what to book.

I read a review about an attraction quite a long way from here which the author of the review had said was amazing, when we got there it was absolutely dire - I don't take too much notice of reviews now, which is weird as I review quite a lot of stuff myself!

@tzwrites Generally a Holiday Inn is a three star. If you go onto the booking sites, they do show the star ratings for the different hotels and they need to live up to the rating they have. I just don't pay attention to the reviews because some people are very picky about what they want or expect in a hotel. Expecting five star quality in a three star hotel is unreasonable.

Yes, make sure that you are always looking at the names too because sometimes they can be called something different and you could be looking at different photos. Yes, it can be very frustrating but I and my family love the Marriott. If we are not really looking for anything too huge then we stay at like a Super eight or something but that is only when we are traveling.
