Hotwire Hotel: 2* Minot Days Inn

Got this but was both surprised and unhappy. So much so that I called HOTWIRE. First off, Days Inn doesn't list the business centre so I was sure I wouldn't get Days Inn but one of the other 2* hotels, all of which I would have prefered. The agent called the hotel and indeed they have a computer and fax machine. They have a printer that is "available" for customers. If that may mean a printer in their office a customer may use. It's interesting that today the feature shows up. Additionally, my final price was actually higher than booking directly. For that I loose the flexibility of direct booking. Hotwire's price is $59 while Days Inn is $64 but after fees and taxes, Hotwire is more expensive. Go figure.

It's the first time I have really been disappointed with a HOTWIRE purchase. I will be calling Days Inn to confirm their amenities.

Amenities - pool, breakfast, laundry, Internet and now... business centre

Thanks for using our HOTWIRE link.

Glad to see you're taking the purchase in stride... i know it can be frustrating, but fortunately just a one nite stay. Not sure if Minot would be considered a "small town", but areas with mostly lower rated hotels, can often be tricky thru the opaque providers.

Dive. :)

I arrived in Minot this evening and wanted to post my impressions before some unsuspecting traveller was subjected to this property or Hotwire's inflated rating. I won't bore you with the details but beyond the 70's era decor, the shabby lobby and small room, this is not a 2 star property. I called Hotwire to express my displeasure and then sent an email. I hope. The wireless is glacial and prone to drops. I hope this come through after 10 minutes of waiting for the page to load. I'm insulted that the booking cost me more than direct purchase. Sad, sad, sad.

Just a follow-up. After speaking to and then following up with and email to customer service, I later responded to the regular evaluation request sent out after each stay. I provided a detailed description of the hotel's condition and amenities. HOTWIRE sent me a $50 credit on a future purchase. Kudos to Hotwire for a quality response to a poor stay. As I said to them, I have good to excellent stays in the many hotels booked via Hotwire. This was the first that was a major disappointment. I see that they haven't yet changed the amenities list but I was told they were sending an evaluator to check the motel.
