Hotwire.com Compliment - Great Deals, If You Read And Understand The Terms Of Purchase
I have used Hotwire over a dozen times and NEVER had a problem.
I have gotten hotels ranging from the Omni and Radison to Super 8 and Extended Stay, and they are usually within 1/2 star of what I would expect that class hotel to be.
I did take the time to read the rules and do understand that there are absolutely no refunds under any conditions, and that there may be extra fees like parking that are not included, and am willing to take that risk.
I have paid as little as $39 for a room that the person checking in ahead of me is paying over $150 for. And it is rather exciting to see what hotel I "won".
