Don't be fooled. This is a 2 star resort. We thought we had a great deal thru Hotwire but they couldn't find our reservation and treated us third class even when they finally found it. Room is super tiny and vintage 80s. The fabulous water park pool is NOT included...

*****HOTWIRE***** Please don't book your car rental through them, they don't let you change/modify if you have a mistake on your reservation like AM instead of PM. They don't let you cancel your reservation & they charged your credit card up front. Also, very bad...

Reserved a car through Hotwire, my plans changed, I called to cancel hoping to get a refund at best a credit. No such luck, the customer service rep (I use that term lightly) and her supervisor regurgitated the same company line "no refunds, exchanges or transfers."...

Hotwire Room Booking Review

Hotwire
#896973
Booked a room in Chicago, the cab driver didn't even know where it was, the lobby was in the hallway, the room was phone booth size, no amenities, I mean zero. When I called Hot Wire to change or upgrade they said no changes and about hung up. Will never use them again.

I reserved a car from hotwirecarrental.com and they did not explain their company policy and service guide to wondering costumers, as myself, henceforth I soon realized that the company is nonrefundable for the payment I made for the car. Even though I called in and...

You wanted special treatment. They followed the rules which you agreed to when booking. Find a pillow to cry in but, yes go elsewhere from now on.

I booked a hotel for 4 nights at Hotwire. I got lured with a luxury option (previous customer got this hotel...) and got a mediocre option as a result. On top of that the total amount was considerably higher than on Hotels.com and the hotel will charge an additional...

I am pretty certain that its 'no refund' clause is being used in conjunction with what is known at their side, and in fact engineered at their side, misleading web site, point-of-sale or point-of-booking, information displayed. I was at an airport a few moths ago, and...

Hotwire popped up while I was searching for a rental car. Since I've never been totally obligated to a car rental before I had no idea that if you changed your mind or found a better deal you would still be charged for the reservation you don't want. I am pissed. I...

Expedia bought Hotwire a few years back, and the good deals on Hotwire *immediately* dried up. Many times I've checked Hotwire on car rentals only to find their "Hot Rate" is...

Had used Hotwire.com to arrange car rental in Salt Lake City for this weekend....I was VERY explicit that I have serious back issues and CANNOT BEND to get into any of the smaller cars. Hotwire rep assured me that everything would be exactly as I needed it, and set us...
