@kicheko, you are correct.  Unless the patron is using some sort of special rate i.e., gov't rate, AARP, you are probably going to get a raw deal when reserving your room.

Some hotels still hide their prices and deals and this certainly leaves one feeling that they could have found a better deal. However if i saw a range of prices from reputable places, then i don't have to worry about those i didn't see because its easy to estimate the average price. Still, negative reviews will keep me away from a great price.

"Reviews and price are the most important influencers of choice"

I not only agree with this statement, I think this is a wonderful thing for consumers.  Slowly companies will understand that they have to be absolutely perfect because all it takes is a single bad review to snowball and reach thousands of eyes.

On the flip side, I do think that companies may get incorrectly judged based on a single bad experience...but it's up to the company to minimize these bad experiences as best they can.

@TalkerZ,

As long as people are purchasing goods, this will always be a problem that consumers face.  This is a problem across all aspects of our lives though.  Gambler addiction is caused by that thought that "the next hand will be the winner".

The pricing strategies leave consumers feeling anxious and unsettled - you always think that you could have found a better deal
