Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Poor Service"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
At checkout there was an unnecessary authorization of my parents card. ( I had already prepaid the room for their 25th year anniversary). When I contacted the front desk of the hotel,the clerk did not have a clear understanding of how the system worked. Will not return.

The room did not have a microwave and fridge and the bed was out of alignment and at checkout they were charging more money, with no reason.. Even though I had paid a week before online.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"Thank you so much for an amazing website. I had a very short time frame to manage a bus tour of 45. I needed hotels and banquets in less than 10 days. The destination was West Palm Beach - high season - and effectively sold-out. Within two hours I had responses back from three available hotels within my price range. I was able to sign a contract within 24 hours and manage the rest of the program. I continue to be impressed with your concept and will be a frequent user of your site." L.B. - Grand Rapids, MI
