Hotwire, Inc Complaint - Do not Use Hotwire to book hotel reservations
SOUTH PORTLAND, MAINE -- I booked a '2 star hotel' with Hotware in South Portland ME. The "2 star hotel" turned out to be roach Motel / hot sheet joint. The door luck was broken the chain removed ( so presumably the cops can bust in more easily?) The place literally stank of stale indian food cooking and mould. The wall paper was peeling, stained and moldy. The bed was saggy and disgusting -- the bed spread was filthy stinky and stained. The place was built in the 80's and there apparently hadn't been any maintenace on it since construction. The toilet seat was delaminated and broken. It was late when I got there or I would have found another place. I ended up sleeping on two beach towels I put on top of the filthy bedspread. The place was vile.
I called Hotwire immediately when I got home and complained. The basically said tough luck bucky. I will NEVER EVER book with Hotscam/wire again.
