Guys do not use any websites to book your hotel rooms.
    #636218 - 09/01/12 08:20 PM (4 years, 3 months ago)

Guys, just so it can never happen to you, do not ever use that bullshit website to book a room in a hotel. Here are a few great reasons for that, as an hotel receptionnist, I kinda know what I am talking about. I am speaking about the website Skoosh.com, but some of these arguments are for any hotel booking websites.

First, it happened twice in 2 weeks so far, some clients arrive with a reservation made on that bullshit website for the exact same day, our hotel, just like ANY other in the fuckin area, were full, no vacancies at all. Fortunatly for me and the clients, we found some room for them in a small shitty motel closeby.

Second, that website will charge an additional 40$ to the price (ex: room here 120, on skoosh 160), actually ALL the websites like that do such thing, Expedia, Hotels.com... whatever they all do it, they are just abusing the shit out of the price like skoosh, but they will take at least 5-10$ from the booking.

Third, you will arrive to your hotel, not knowing there wasn't any vacancies, not knowing that the hotel didn't have the reservations at all, not knowing the area, please, if it ever happens to you, don't start yelling at the frontdesk staff. IT ISN'T OUR FUCKING FAULT.

Fourth, you, only you and YOURFUCKINSELF will have to deal with the problem, as the hotel doesn't have anything to do with that website, you will have to call the website back, which will be closed for the week end or the day for sure.

Fifth, just for an exemple at the moment, all the hotels in the area are full, the clients arrived at 5pm tonight and they are still in the hotel infront of the reception, on the couch, trying to call all the fuckin hotels on a 3 hours radius around the hotel, they all have no vacancies. They are still there and it is 8pm at the moment. I did all I could to find some place, but finding rooms for 11 people is not an easy task at all.

Again, that website is a scam, don't use it, just call the hotel by yourself, it is fairly easy to find the phone number on internet and it will save you money. Also, please, remember the hotel scene in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, where HST arrives during a pig convention, and the retarded pig yelling at him like the fuck out of it, it happened twice today, just act like HST, get spaced out, then sneak between guests or even interrupt the yelling if possible, just to get the room quick and not make shit.

Yeah, but thats not really about hotels.com, even tho they do charge more than if you'd just call the hotel to make the reservation by yourself, they will at least make you pay 5 to 15$ more just because of that.

Some of em are legit, some are not.  Do your research and make sure you're using one that has a good reputation, like you would do with anything you purchase online.  Common sense people.

I am not saying none of them are legit, I am saying ALL of them charge more than the normal room price, I mean it is normal, they book the room for you, they certainly won't have such website if they wouldn't get any profit from it.

It is not quite difficult to just google the name of the place you are heading to, and add hotel right next to it, you'll find lots of hotel's website, if you just call the number they give you, it will cost less. I am just saying this because I really do see a shitload of clients getting abused by such website, some goes up to 40$ extra, some aren't so bad, but still take a 5$ at least in the price.

See, that term pedo gets thrown around a lot.
Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

Maybe they recognized your face and said "GODDAMMIT! NOT THIS FUCKING DOCTOR GONZO GUY AGAIN!" ^^

LOL but nice thoughts, I have never seen it that way, because I hardly didn't travel ever.
But I'm glad of this advice because shit can be a real pain in the ass when learned through experience...  :ganja:
