Tripadvisor reviews that will make your skin crawl

27 Oct

Poor Tripadvisor! A few dozen hotel owners, who don’t understand how travelers actually use Tripadvisor, plan to sue the site over some less-than-flattering reviews left by Tripadvisor users.

I, for one, am grateful for the service Tripadvisor provides. How else would we know that the Heritage Marina Hotel in San Francisco is the dirtiest hotel in America? Or that staying at the Desert Lodge in Palm Desert is “like sleeping on the streets of Calcutta“? And you know a hotel is bad when 89% of travelers recommend against it.

What’s your worst hotel experience?
