Hotel ratings can be very useful in choosing a discount hotel. Because ratings are somewhat subject and reflect some person's or group's opinion at some time in the past, hotel ratings are not absolute and should be used only as a general guide. Whether a hotel has a pool and/ or health club, is close to shopping, restaurants or an event, etc. may be more or less important to you then to the person or group that issued the rating. Be sure to investigate all aspects of a hotel before booking a discount hotel reservation. Remember that rating systems can vary greatly. Some use 4 or 5 diamonds, stars or other designation for the top rating. Read and understand the rating system before trying to make a decision.
