Don’t you hate booking an ocean-view bungalow—only to discover you need binoculars to see the “view”? Use these two sources to get the inside scoop on what your hotel will really deliver:
- Yelp: Yelp’s user reviews haven’t yet been taken over by fake-customer-bots that lie about hotels in order to boost their bookings, so you get the real deal. Plus, the excellent mobile app is a lifesaver when you’re on the road.
- Oyster: The muckraker of travel review sites, Oyster’s team of highly-trained spies reports on hotels so you don’t have to deal with nasty surprises. To get a taste, check out their outrageous photo fakeouts.
