Ripoff

YOU ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK OF HAVING YOUR BOOKING CANCELLED WITHOUT NOTICE IF YOU USE THIS COMPANY. I am not kidding, this company left me hanging after they'd already taken my money for the reservation. I get to the hotel and the manager says "Oh, getaroom.com has cancelled your reservation without reason." Now just imagine getting off a redeye to hear that about a room you already paid for. One thing that you CANNOT say after you read this is that "Well, nobody told me." You can't say that at all. This company is ran absolutely horribly, they are inattentive, and you will risk not having a room at all if you have the displeasure and unluckiness of having to contact them for a room. If you're third party website (expedia, travelocity, etc) sends you to them, cancel your itinerary immediately without delay and go with someone else. Better to start to the refund/reimbursement process as soon as possible, rather than delaying and having them get the upper hand, CANCEL THEM IMMEDIATELY.There are many other services out there who are about their business and will get you a room WITHOUT screwing you over in the process. Do not read this and be a dummy and try to say "I WASN'T WARNED!"

Scam

I went on a specific hotel site. I thought I was booking direct with a hotel. After I submitted my request - I got an email from getaroom.com.... It was for the WRONG hotel - and had a service fee tacked on that exceeded one nights room rate

I called within 12 hours and asked to cancel this reservation - they have refused to do anything. ( the reservation request is for May 2018) They say it is ALL non refundable.

I called the reservations desk at the hotel. Yes, they have a reservation in my name, correct dates, wrong hotel - there are multiples os this same hotel chain in the city). The reservation was made thru Priceline.

Getaroom.com is not a booking site. It is a scam. A con, they take a huge fee for doing something another company does.

I do not know how they manage to substitute their site - for the hotel site.

I want a refund

getaroom.com

This is a deeply rooted unethical company. After calling a 1 800 number and thinking I was talking directly to a hotel, I gave them my credit card number. When I realized what company I was talking to I asked to cancel this reservation because one was already booked for me at the hotel I thought I was calling. They refused to cancel and sent me to another customer service line who then proceeded to tell me they have a no cancelation policy.

I have called multiple times and found that this would have happened again if I were not wiser. In other words, the fraud here is deeply rooted. My guess is that this exceeds what we have seen at Wells Fargo. Please avoid this company and be on the watch for an appeal to join a class action lawsuit.

getaroom.com

I, TOO, WAS A VICTIM OF FRAUD BY GETAROOM.COM. I WENT TO THE FAIRFIELD MARRIOT WEBSITE TO BOOK DIRECT BECAUSE THE ROOM RATE WAS THE SAME AS THE VARIOUS ONLINE BOOKING AGENTS. I BOOKED MY ROOM AND PUT MY CREDIT CARD INFO IN. WHEN IT CAME BACK WITH WHAT MY CARD WOULD BE CHARGED THERE WAS $169.00 FEE ATTACHED. I IMMEDIATELY CALLED THE NUMBER AND WAS TOLD TOO BAD, THIS WAS IN SOME FINE PRINT. I CALLED THE HOTEL DIRECT AND WAS TOLD I HAD A RESERVATION THROUGH EXPEDIA.COM NOT THROUGH MARRIOT. I GOT A CONFIRMATION ON MY EMAIL SAYING I HAD BOOKED THROUGH GETAROOM.COM WHO I HAD NEVER HEARD OF. I CALLED MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY IMMEDIATELY TO DISPUTE THE CHARGE, BUT IT HASN'T SHOWN UP YET. THIS COMPANY MUST BE MADE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR FRAUDULENT ACTIONS.

FRAUD

WAS DIRECTED TO GETAROOM.COM WHILE ON MARRIOT HOTELS WEBSITE WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE, ENTERED MY CARD INFORMATION , WHEN SCREEN TO REVIEW CHARGES APPEARED THE CHARGE WAS $200.00 MORE THAN ROOM CHARGE! I DID NOT AUTHORIZE CHARGE AND IT AUTOMATICALLY CHARGED MY CREDIT CARD. IMMEDIATELY CALLED NUMBER ON RESERVATION CONFIRMATION EMAIL (NOT FROM MARRIOT AS EXPECTED BUT FROM GETAROOM.COM), THEY REFUSED TO CANCEL, "NO REFUNDS". WE INFORMED THEM THAT WE DID NOT AUTHORIZE THE CHARGE AND NO INTENTION OF BUSINESS WITH THEM, NO HELP FROM THEM. WHEN WE CHECKED INTO HOTEL, IN THEIR COMPUTER STATES "PRICELINE.COM". TRAVELERS BEWARE OF THIS SCAM!

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY

I booked a non refundable room through this site. Sadly when I booked the room I was directed from the hotels website to this company. The charge was way more than expected. Then they didn't pay the Hotel so I was charged again by the hotel. The direct bill was $94 dollars cheaper than using this site. Next time I will call the hotel and book direct. Use them if you're interested in spending an extra 30-40 minutes on the phone trying to get your money back...

Hotel not Paid

I booked a non refundable room through this site. I stayed the one night and was billed again by the hotel due to non payment. Sadly direct billing was $99 cheaper. 35 minutes on the phone is not time well spent. They supposedly paid the hotel and I should see a refund from the hotel. I will never use this site again. Rip Off

Getaroom needs to get me MY room!

I received a reservation # R826420219 on July 4th which after 9 days is still showing as "unable to be found" when I log into the GETAROOM site to check the " my reservations" it states "sorry unable to locate". Which is the SAME issue I am having with Walt Disney Resort Reservations. So I took it upon myself to call the WDW property who by the way was AMAZING, they took the time to look in every possible spot using every possible way of locating my SO CALLED Reservation from Getaroom. Walt Disney is also telling me that there is nothing in their system and I should call the booking agent. I was also informed that the reservation SHOULD show on their end IMMEDIATELY "if" one was made. I am very frustrated as I am missing out on the opportunity to make dining reservations and or fast pass reservations. I am now also unable to book a room at the resort as it is currently completely booked. Each and every person I contact offers a different story, most although use the 5 more days are needed and of course the "I am sorry"! Why hasn't this company been shut down????????
My Original Ticket number issued is Request #1304435 submitted by Jeanette Ng.

Not the hotel brand's website, but cleverly disguised!

I googled a hotel brand & specific city --- the first listing looked legitimate and the web address included the brand's hotel name --- when I followed the link, again the website looked legitimate. I called the toll-free reservation number.
I should have known something was up when they had to put me on hold to find the wedding-block room rate, and when the rate quoted was for non-refundable reservations only.
After I'd booked the room, I realized that the "taxes & service fees" were 1/2 the room rate ---- much more than expected!
When I called back to have it explained and wasn't satisfied, I finally thought to call the actual hotel and found out I'd been dealing with a 3rd party vendor --- getaroom.com --- and not the hotel brand's reservation people!!
It took well over an hour and 3 different representatives before they agreed to both cancel the reservation AND provide a refund!!!
It was extremely frustrating and I felt like I was scammed by the way their website was listed/advertised!! They are definitely drawing people in with the listing's wording and the website's look --- they are not a reputable business in my opinion.
I have learned my lesson! Terrible company!

No room after confirmed reservation

Arrived at Kempinski Hotel in Amman, Jordan. Even though I had a confirmed reservation and my credit card had been charged, the hotel said no record of it and none of those rooms available. Because I was stuck I accepted an upgraded room for a much higher additional charge. Hotel staff was cordial but this is ridiculous. When is a confirmed room reservation not. Doesn't the company that took the money have an obligation to provide the service? We will be taking Getaroom off my company's approved vendor list. Robert Diener, you have a problem

Lied about my room

This company is the absolute WORST booking agency EVER! The man I booked my reservation with guaranteed that I would have a room with 2 queen beds, because I told him I was travelling with 3 adults (2 that were elderly). When I got the email confirmation, it said 1 king or 2 queen beds. I called them back and they told me that I had to call the hotel directly. (That was another misleading experience, because the man intially told me they were the hotel, but then got cagey with his answers as I continued to talk to him). The hotel said they could not access my reservation with this 3rd party booking company, and could not guarantee the room, AND told me that they had NO roll-away beds, even if I wanted to pay for one. The Getaroom people kept me on the phone for almost 3 hours, over 3 different phone calls and would not help me whatsoever! I even found out that if I had booked through the hotel directly, their rates were much better. Don't be fooled by these crooks. They were rude and totally unaccomodating.

Taxes and fees. Room prices

I called hotels number i thought .The person who answered led me to believe he worked for LA Quinta. I booked a room for 159.00 +taxes and fees which turned into 241.19. When I got to hotel they said going rate was 151.49.taxes included but couldn't give me the lower rate because it was third party booking.getaroom had charged me 90.30 over going rate, 73.49 of it was billed as a tax recovery fee. When I called them to complain, they hung up on me 4 times. The 5th time I finally got someone to refund the 73.49, but wouldn't match the rate available at the hotel. Beware of this site.deceptive,and dishonest. SCAM .

Wrong rates to hotel provided

My husband had called a hotel directly and somehow was transferred to a third party company (which he was not informed of), thus my husband had believed he was talking to the hotel directly and locally. The agent did not identify himself as an agent of Getaroom. He had identified that he was with the hotel. We are from Canada. The agent quoted him a decent rate for the hotel and had quoted him in Canadian dollars. He went ahead with the booking. After less than 10 minutes from the phone call, my husband received an email of the confirmation. We were astounded that it was booked and charged to our credit card in US dollars making the hotel rate much higher than what he was quoted on the phone. He called immediately and they had told him that there was nothing they could do and that cancellation had to be done 48 hours prior to day of arrival. The reservation was made on the day of his arrival (actually 5 hrs prior to his arrival). On the confirmation, it states in black and white that if he had to cancel, he needed to so prior to 4pm (local time) on the day of arrival. He called at 9am that day which is also 10 minutes after he made the reservation. In the end, they were really rude and unhelpful, considering they made the error. Then when he checked into the hotel, the hotel told him that he had to pay the Canadian amount after he checks out. He even showed him the confirmation that "Getaroom" had charged the full amount in US dollars to this credit card. The hotel says that they do not see that on their side. So now, we are fighting with the hotel and Getaroom as now the charge will be over $1000 instead of $400 for a 3 night stay.

Such a headache....Getaroom sucks big time, they are rude, not friendly at all. DON'T USE THEM AT ALL!!!!! VERY BAD COMPANY!!!!!

Getaroom with get lost attitude

Horrible Experience

"warning warning danger danger"
I have booked my hotel for six days 10 month's in advance costs me $900. I accidentally cancelled my reservation so i emailed getaroom about reinstating my reservation for the same period however getaroom advised me that this is non refundable reservation. I understand non refund policy but i don't want my money back just a bit of understanding,support and reinstating my reservation. Getaroom attitude was bad luck and Get lost with 0% sympathy.
Now i have no reservation or money in the bank😂😂😂.

SCAM

The person on the phone portrayed themselves as being employed by of Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham on October 21st. He booked my room for 2 nights for November 4th and 5th. I called the Hotel to cancel the next day due to change of plans. I was told that I didn't book a room through their hotel, it was a third party by the name of get a room. She kindly cancelled my room and I called fetch a room. They told me to read your email their is No Refund. I told them that this should have been stated over the phone before my credit card information was taken and not in an email. I then notified my credit card company of this fraud. The company claims to be affiliated with price line. I called price and they also cancelled my reservation. I am reporting this company to the BBB. I have never used a company that takes pleasure in openly committing fraud . What a shame

hotel under construction

Booked what I thought was a good hotel only to arrive and find out hotel is under construction. Told construction starts at 9 am every day. Total chaos. AC not working. Had to call front desk twice and all they did was lower the thermostat to 60 and still not cooling the room. This is a total sham and I would never recommend using this site. Good luck to anyone who wants a refund. This was a non refundable rate. If I had known hotel was under construction before I booked I would have passed on the so called great rate.

No confirmation at hotelj

I reserved a room at a hotel via getaroom.com. It took them over 4 hours to relocate us to another hotel, while they claim the hotel overbooked. However, their compensation was going from a 2 star to a 2.5 star property? Such compensation when you've been drug around for 4 hours and basically lied to by this company. I do NOT suggest booking through Getaroom.com. We travel frequently and you would think being with Trip Advisor, it would give them some type of dependability, wrong! They simply continued to throw the responsibility onto the hotel instead of taking responsibility for their actions.

If this happens to you, continually call them until you get rebooked into another hotel. While on the line with them, if possible, go to the relocated property to ensure they have a reservation for you.

Suddenly cancel my booking

On 14 April, I booked one room in Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel and the check in date is 1 May. Which is confirmed immediately. I am looking forward to spend my holiday with my family there. However, on 23 April, I received the email saying that my booking is cancelled due to the rate that I booked is only for US residents only. But the problem is I never see that terms during my booking and they suddenly added this terms 10 days after confirmed my booking? If they have stated this terms clearly during the booking or cancel my booking immediately I still have chance to book somewhere else with a reasonable price, but now i can only book the same room with 4 times the original price! My holiday is destroyed by this company. The worst is their staff didn't answer my email, they only reply "we expressly reserve the right to correct any pricing errors of Travel Agent Services and/or pending reservations made under an incorrect price.", but this term never show during my booking either. I feel angry and very disappointed and never refer this company to any of my friends.

Getaroom.com HUGE scam! BEWARE

I found what I thought was a great rate on Best Western, called them, the agent answered, took my request and said Best Western in North Myrtle Beach had no vacancy, but she had other room available at another location. I told her I wanted a queen suite because there were 5 of us and I needed be close to the Pirates Voyage Dinner Theater in North Myrtle Beach, on the strip. Agent was super excited about the deal she found me, and even upsold me on a "premium room" I asked her what the difference of a delux and premium room was. She said a Premium room was on a higher floor. I like higher floors so I paid an additional $20 to have a higher floor. I verified the location with her and she even gave me driving directions. She asked me if I knew where the amusement park was on the strip, I said no, but I know where the sky wheel is. She said "OH GREAT! its just a few blocks from there". She said it was between Tanger outlets and Pirates Voyage. PERFECT! sold! I get to Myrtle Beach, finish up at Tanger, put my directions in and the hotel was over 16 miles away! We go past Pirates Voyage dinner theater and drive another 30 minutes. Mind you this was on Valentines and was a special treat for my husband and 3 teenage kids. We get there, and our room was just 2 queen beds. I pull up my receipt from getaroom, and it says 5 people / premium queen suite. The lady then "upgrades me" for free! REALLY... she upgraded me to what I paid for! Get to the room and it stunk! TERRIBLE TERRIBLE smell. called Getaroom, they said go to the lobby and file a complaint. I did. They said call Getaroom to get your refund authorized. I did. I spent over 1 hour on the phone on hold with getaroom. It is now 1 week later and neither getaroom nor the hotel will refund my money. Getaroom will NOT let me listen to the recorded phone call. They said the agent told me tanger was 7 miles not blocks. Well.. thats great because the agent and I never discussed miles, or how far from Tanger it was. We discussed how far from the sky wheel it was - a few blocks. The hotel was not even in North Myrtle and no where near the strip, the sky wheel, Pirates voyage.. nothing! The hotel, Springmaid Beach Resort, didn't check us out even though we gave them our keys 15 minutes after we checked in and left. They will not print us a record of our reservation. HORRIBLE experience. HORRIBLE hotel. HORRIBLE booking service. Lesson learned! My bank is now fighting this. BEWARE! customer service is aweful at Getaroom. They DO NOT know what they are talking about. They just want to make a hard sell and get your money.
