Hot Rate Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Hotwire Hot Rates are the low prices that Hotwire specially negotiates with our hotel suppliers. We work with only the best in the business. We don't have sales or weekly specials. ... The key to getting these deals is flexibility: The hotel name and street location will be shown after you complete a booking.
Kurtis angrily mentioned, "I recently used the Hot Rate function of Hotwire, and I must say I was extremely disappointed. The hotel it chose for me was in the worst part of downtown, they gave it 4 stars, but it was more like 3 stars. The service at the hotel was fair, but given location and room quality, it was a definitely a poor choice on Hotwire's part, and apparently on my part for even trusting them. I tried to call them on it, but they have terrible customer service. Once you get locked in at the Hot Rate you are at their mercy whether the hotel stinks or not. I would definitely encourage people to use sites like Expedia or Priceline over Hotwire. I've found their customer service to be much more courteous and helpful in resolving problems, and really at the end of the day, more often then not they can get a deal comparable to the Hot Rate. It's just not worth it to put your trust in the hands of Hotwire. Pretty big rip off in my opinion."

Guest Experience Specialist (Former Employee) says"The Courtyard Marriott located at Mayo Clinic Jacksonville Fl ,anyone seeking employment with Housekeeping I strongly suggest you don't apply there. The Management Team clearly don't respect their team and how hard they work. During a time like this you would think extra cleaning measures are being taken, instead they over work their associates by giving them at least 26 credits and maybe just maybe 3 out of the total are King rooms meaning all others are doubled bed rooms in which they have no help. The Room Attendants Strip, remove garbage and fetch there own linens sometimes having to work through their breaks or past their off time to complete boards. Covid is high and by over working Attendants= Not Properly Cleaned Rooms .....Be Very Aware!!! Cons: Poor Management, Overworked Staff"

Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) says"manager was racist, assistant manager was sleeping with the front desk girls and gave her a promotion because of it, replacement manager couldn't even issue a refund and had no experience. I was forced to work off the clock to cut down on overtime, because we did not have enough employees. I got called in all hours of the day, managers were disrespectful and sexist. no work life balance, guests were rude, pay was bad. I was the only one there with a degree including the managers. lots of HR issues but no actual HR (Signs were posted but when we tried to complain, they went to the manager instead of to an HR rep.) broken amenities such as phones in the handicapped room were covered up, elevators remained broken the entire time i worked there and my manager told me to lie to guests. theft occurred regularly, or housekeeping just threw lost and found items away and asked me to lie about them not finding them. stay/work anywhere else!!"
