TripAdvisor Tips

Navigate TripAdvisor With These Reader Tips!

Figuring out which hotel to stay in can be tough, so thank heavens for TripAdvisor! In a recent survey, all of you said that you found consumer opinions on travel review sites really helpful, and a few readers left some great tips for sorting through reviews. Here are some of them:


  • Check Their Bios: 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  —
  • Read the Content: 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. —
  • Look at the In-Cetween Ratings: 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!) —
