Don’t Give Online Review of your Accommodation Until You’ve Checked Out

Aloha Everyone,

This is a true story about Susan Leger and her six-year-old granddaughter. They were kicked out of their pre-paid hotel at Baymont Inn & Suites in Helen, Georgia. The reason given by the proprietor is a negative review she wrote about the hotel. Apparently, it is legal in Georgia to throw out guests the proprietor doesn’t like. This was in the middle of the night.

Lesson learned is never give an online review — especially unfavorable ones— on Hotels.con or for that matter any booking services until you are clear out of the premise. Some hotel owners have also sued because of a bad review.

Aloha -- Cathi
