Do You Find Reviews on Travel Sites Helpful?

I generally have a lot of faith in travel reviews on sites like TripAdvisor.com, because I tend to trust what the consumers say versus the hotels. I just saw this amazing slideshow by Business Insider that compares the pictures that the hotels use for marketing to photos of what the actual hotel really looks like. The stark difference is the reason why I tend to gravitate towards the opinions of reviewers rather than the hotel's website. What about you — do you find the reviews helpful or they just a small perk?

Yes I do. But I also really look at the content of the posts, some people are overly excited or overly critical.

I also read where they are from and what their age is. Someone from the UK has different expectations than someone from Canada. And a 55 year old has different standards then a 23 year old :)

I find them helpful, but I always make sure to read some statements, rather than just looking at the stars. Because sometimes there'll be some cranky person giving them one star just because the receptionist was on the phone for too long or things like that.

I LOVE trip advisor. I pay more attention to ratings between two and four than I do to the one and five star ratings though. (Unless there are a ton of one star ratings!)
