My husband, 10 month old son and I traveled to Miami for one night because we weren't far and took the chance to see a beautiful beach. We searched for cheap, but safe motels/hotels to stay at. Since downtown didn't have any decent ones, we went to Biscayne Blvd where we noticed all the tourists were going. We paid $85... More

I canceled my reservation three hours after I made it for the next evening and still got charged for occupying a room. When I tried to call and cancel the receptionist did not speak a bit of english so I went back to the middle man (booking.com) to cancel. Now I am out $100.00

My husband booked this hotel the night before our cruise, without checking TripAdvisor's reviews. It seemed everything else was booked. Always check reviews! They were right: 1)mold in the shower 2) no blankets, except for a tiny, ragged grey piece of material in the closet 3) sketchy area 4) shredded door 5) sad excuses for 2 towels 6) questionable "carpet"--thin,...

The fax with the reservation data (and also the creditcard data) was lying in the booth which somebodz here called a lobby. everybody could take a... More
