Take hotel reviews with a grain of salt. When you’re looking to stay at a hotel or resort, you often read the reviews of past guests to see what their experience was like. Many times you will use this information to judge whether or not you stay at the attended locale. But I want you to look at this information in a subjective way. First of all, think about the reviews you personally leave. This day and age everybody from your corner drugstore to the fast food restaurants want you to leave a review of the service.
Let’s face it, if you buy a bottle of shampoo and someone rings you out, that does not warrant a review. You would have to go to your computer, think about what to say, try to remember the name of the cashier, and then leave a thought provoking analysis of a transaction of buying a bottle of shampoo. Needless to say, this doesn’t warrant your time or attention. This goes for many industries which includes hotel stays and vacation visits. Now on the other hand, the reviews you probably will say are ones with extraordinary service either good or bad. For example, if someone lost an important piece of jewelry and the hotel attendants went above and beyond the call of duty to find it, that one’s for a good review.
On the opposite side of the spectrum. If you come down with the flu, and as a result get sick on something at the cafeteria, your opinion of your stay there might be diminished. And that was no fault of the facility in question; it was just bad luck. So someone may leave a bad review based on their personal perception of their stay. It may have nothing to do with the quality of service rendered, it was just one of those things. So when you read hotel reviews, you want to keep these things in mind before deciding whether or not to stay at a particular venue. It can make a big difference in the quality of your stay overall.
