  • hotel reservations through roomstays.com



    perhaps it is an issue that one needs to watch the source of the web site but I thought that I was booking directly through the hotel which I find out would have been upwards of $70.00 per night LESS had I been directly booking through the hotel. I felt mislead that I was not booking directly through the hotel. It seems a real scam that these booking agents do not have to state that their prices may be higher. They do like to advertise lower prices than going direct which I have NEVER found to be true!!! What a rip off! Even my confirmation was designed to make me believe the reservation... More...

  • Roomstays misleading on price



    I arrived in Vancouver airport late without a room reservation, so I Googled a hotel where I had stayed before and was satisfied. They were full and the website referred me to Roomstays, listing Hampton Inn as the least expensive available at $113, so I booked it. The confirmation listed the cost at $141.35 including tax recovery charges and service fees. When my Mastecard bill came in the charge was $165.56. I phoned Roomstays to complain and was told that the price quoted was US dollars and the difference was US/Cdn$ exchange. I made this booking in Canada for a Canadian hotel using a... More...

  • RoomStays.com



    DO NOT book your reservations through RoomStays.com! I booked a hotel in Vancouver BC for 2 nights in July. I called RoomStays 3 days prior to cancel because of a family illness. RoomStays called the hotel and assured me that I would get a full refund, even though the hotel normally charged a 1 night penalty, and gave me a 'case number' as reference. When I called back several weeks later because I had not received my refund, they told me they had no record of the case number they had given me and could do nothing to secure my refund - not even for 1 night.

  • Deceptive Marketing Practices -- BEWARE!



    I saw the Roomstays website advertising a stay in the Monterey Bay Embassy Suites Hotel starting at $123.00/night. I am retired, and my dates are extremely flexible. I could not find this rate for any of 6 different dates I tried on the website, so I called the Roomstays.com phone number. I was on the line for about 80 minutes while the agent tried to find this rate for ANY day in the next 12 months. He could not even come close to this price (his price was half again as much at this advertised offer), so he tried to "bait and switch" me to another hotel for the $123 price. I... More...

  • CANNOT CANCEL RESERVATION



    Made a reservation without knowing it was through "RoomStays" and when I got the email confirmation, I tried to cancel because the hotel gave a better rate. They would not cancel...even if the reservation is 18 days away!! I talked to a manager "Richard" and told him the person I made the reservation with NEVER identified himself as being with "RoomStays". He informed me their policy is to identify themselves.....so much for RoomStays policy!!! NEVER book with them!!!!! More...

  • Credit Card Charged after Cancellation



    I canceled a reservation within moments of registering because hotel we booked had construction going on. This was one month prior to the day of arrival. I have Cancellation Confirmation email from Roomstay.com and they STILL would not honor the cancellation because they stated they did not have any record of the cancellation. Isn't that what cancellation confirmation numbers are for???? Have spent days, of my school district's man hours trying to get these charges reversed!!! More...

    I made a reservation through the hotel not knowing I was actually reserving through RoomStays.com. I tried to cancel my reservation 36 hours before the check in time and spent about 3 hours on the phone with the hotel, Expedia and RoomStays. The helpful person at the Radisson said she would cancel the reservation, but because they had a third part credit card on file, they could not assure me that I would not be charged. I have just spent another hour on the phone back and forth between the hotel and RoomStays and still do not have any assurance. I will ALWAYS ask if RoomStays.com is part... More...

    The biggest loser! ME!, I'm not sure how I got transferred to the RoomStays.com site and I'm not sure if the cancellation policy for the RoomStays.com was given prior to my hitting the button but 3 days later I need to move back my stay by one day keeping the 2 day stay. I was advised it would result in a 90% cancellation fee of the full reservation. I keep the two nights stay and called the hotel directly and booked an up grade for less $'s for the one night I wanted to slide my reservation to.

  • Misleading rip off



    When I made my hotel reservation, the website looked just like the hotel website with pictures and print that looked like the Marriott I was booking. After putting in my credit card information, I scrolled down and noticed it might not actually be the Marriott website. I spent about an hour trying to cancel my reservation. 3 hours later I receive the confirmation email which is $10 more than the refund. Spent another 20 minutes trying to get that back. "tough beans" for me. The website it misleading. Looks like official Marriott and the customer disservice is terrible. More...

  • Website charges $10 non-refundable fee, even if cancelled right away



    I booked a hotel through Roomstay.com and called to cancel it right away. They have a $10 booking fee that they would not give back. What other website charges $10 just to book a room? I did not expect that since I've never seen it before and didn't know it was OVER and ABOVE the price that was listed just before I hit my credit card payment. I called and spoke to several people and they said there was NOTHING they could do, that it was their policy and they are keeping my money.

  • HIGH FEES - some hidden - and POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE



    NEVER use this website! The $9.95 non-refundable fee IS disclosed on the checkout page IF you read all the fine print, although the first page that I read showing this fee did NOT say that it is non-refundable. There is also an inexplicable TAX RECOVERY FEE over and above the hotel taxes. Total taxes/fees paid on a 2-night stay were 23.2% of the room charge. This is my fault for not reviewing the charges more carefully before completing this transaction, but this hotel booking "service" is a RIPOFF. Also, my credit card was charged immediately, but it took almost 8 hours to... More...

  • Room Stays Was the WORST experience EVER!!!



    I was overcharged for my room so when i called to complain they said, "sorry no refunds it's policy". I was OVERCHARGED! Also, i was charged $10.00 fee for using the site which they never told you about when booking. During the conversation with a terrible customer service (which was zero service) agent i was disconnected 7, yes SEVEN times. In the end i have no room, no reservation and a $190.00 credit card bill for making the mistake of booking through this criminal site. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!! More...

  • roomstay-based on theft!



    Stay away! From roomstay! All they do is book you a room that you could do just as easily yourself (same info. that you would type into the hotel site) Then, charge you a $10 fee!! (Of course they don't tell you up front-all the info. is hidden in a tiny little icon) Also, you do not get a better rate or anything else with them-they should be banned from the internet! And you can't cancel! I had to cancel my credit card! STAY AWAY FROM ROOM STAY!!!! More...

  • Total rip off-Confirmation email did not include website or phone no.



    I too thought I was dealing directly with the hotel. When I called the hotel (Harrahs/Tahoe) to cancel several days before arrival I was told that the hotel could not cancel because reservations were made thru a 3rd party. When I asked who 3rd party was I was told it was Expedia Hotels.com. After many unsucessful attempts to get satisfaction on this website, I called back to Harrah's and was given a phone number for Expedia, was unable to talk to anybody except that the 3rd party could be Roomstay.com. After many frustrating delays I finally got to verify reservations were made... More...

    We booked a hotel with roomstays.com with and urgent "one more room available at this rate" warning with also a promise for a deluxe upgrade. First of all. There was no such thing as a deluxe upgrade when checked in. Second: They ended up charging us nearly double of what was listed with a tiny little post at the end saying, oh by the way we are charging another $9.95 separate fee. Third: The hotel pics posted were completely misinterpreted and largely exaggerated. Our stay was NOTHING like what we thought we would get by what was listed on the website. After calling they...

    Do not use room stays - they charge a $10 fee to book the same room at the same price as offered directly thru the hotel. The $10 fee is non-refundable even if you cancel the room within 2 minutes. The $10 fee is ridiculous since Room Stays offers no discount! You can get a cheaper room directly at the hotel website or thru Orbitz, etc which has no fee. DON"T USE ROOM STAY! More...

    Just had an awful experience. Booked the hotel room in the wrong city (Hastings,NE vs Hastings, MI) due to their paid google search result (Hastings MI brought up the link to Nebraska and I did not notice) They absolutely refused to refund the Nebraska room, even though I needed and was willing to book the Michigan room. An absolute ripoff. Recommend that they NEVER be used. And pay close attention to who is actually booking the room for you. Their logo was tiny and I thought I was on the Holiday Inn booking sit.

    I went to several booking web sites and ended up booking a hotel for an upcoming conference on this site. I assumed it was like every other hotel booking site I have used. NO! They not only had a $9.95 booking charge (unheard of in this day and age) but also charged the entire thing up front. Considering this was a room for three people, who were all going to be paying on university accounts, this was a disaster. Since it was all charged on my one card, it all comes out of my account. Since it is prepaid and NOT REDUNDABLE at all --- if I cancell they charge the full amount -- I am... More...

    I mistakenly booked a reservation for a hotel on London, Ontario instead of London, KY. I was charged twice for the same two nights, once by roomstays and the other by the London KY Country Inn and suites. Roomstays would not help me at all. All they kept telling me was that I didn't cancel enough in advance and was a no show, of course I didn't realize the mistake until I got to the correct hotel. It seems no one cares about customer service once they get their money. More...

I then called roomstay and they said that no security funds would be needed upon arrival everything would be put onto my mothers card. I had also asked for a hotel within 5 miles of the airport.

    Very unhappy with roomstays. First of all, I did not realize and it was not made clear that there was a $9.95 service fee. Secondly, even though I'm being charged this non-refundable fee, I still have ZERO option to cancel my reservation, which I would have wanted to do, as the tourist train that I was going to take has cancelled their trips due to a derailment. I will stick with hotels.com in the future. NEVER USE THEM!!! More...
