Hotwire, Inc Complaint - The Hotel you choose will be in a certain area
Hotwire states that the hotel reservation will be in a certain area within a city and will be one of several hotel brands. After accepting the area, and the price, you have already committed to the sale. Then you find out what hotel and where it is.
We ended up with the very Nasty Super 8 Motel in Durham, NC. After we found out, within minutes, we called Hotwire. Too Late, all sales are final. We called the hotel, they assured us that the hotel was fine. Several months later, after a late flight arrival, we went to the hotel to check in. There was a lot of activity in the parking lot (around midnight). You had to go to an outdoor bulletproof window to check in. One of the folks in our party was certain that they saw a sign for hourly room rental.
Folks, this was a very, very scary place. We decided not to stay. We wasted 120.00 but learned a very valuable lesson, never use Hotwire.
