What Tripadvisor.com doesn’t do for you
Tripadvisor.com is the web site that will help you plan your trip by providing you the best travel information, but there are some aspects of your trip that can’t be fulfilled by the Tripadvisor team. For instance, Tripadvisor.com does not take hotel reservations. In case you need more information about your reservations or you need travel directions, you should directly contact the hotel.
Added By Jim Dicken a review of Trip Advisor and its policies. While this site claims to publish only subjective reviews, it allows many reviews to be posted with no proof of the problems existing. People are allowed to make any claim, that is close to reasonable in order to harm a business. Responses by businesses are not allowed the same leniency. This site promotes slander against legitimate business interests. At no point is any proof required of any person who posts a review on this site. Example: Claims of Mold which could be photographed are not required to claim a facility has mold. While most people recognize that tastes differ, so do the motives of people making posts. Some people are just demanding and when their demands are not met they feel justified in raising 10 kinds of heck to cause problems so that a business will acceed to their demands. Some businesses will tolerate this others will not and are familiar with the workings of the "Professional Customer" who believes that the customer is always right. Truth is Customers are not always right. Some times they want more than is available or more than was offered for the price. These are the professional complainers who inhabit this kind of unproven subjective review site. Beware of the reviews on this site. Be extremely wary of the most damaging reviews, when others reviewing the same facility provide a good review. Please remember that the top ten accommodations may not always be the best ten accommodations
