We were unable to use our reserved room at HIE, Rifle, but our conversation with their cashier was pleasant. He politely referred us to HOTWIRE who is a PARTNER with EXPEDIA and due to our unfamiliarity with different organization's relationships ultimately made our reservation (HOTWIRE). We thought we were dealing directly with EXPEDIA.
Since our reservation required a substantial payment "in advance" we purchased trip insurance. We thought that was a prudent thing to do - we learned it ultimately was a waste of money. Hence this posting of BEWARE to other potential victims of this quasi-scam.
Ultimately we learned cancellation and use of our trip insurance was a burdensome, time-consuming and most probably unrewarding effort. "I believe" HOTWIRE relies on busy travelers, their lifestyles and the complicated system is designed more likely to make money for HOTWIRE than provide a service to the travelling/vacationing public.
My displeasure is with HOTWIRE and is definitely not with HOLIDAY INN or EXPEDIA.
