Racheal G.: “Booking using this app is easy , BUT 3 times now, we have NOT gotten the rooms that we chose on the app! It seemed very clear on the app, but when arriving at the hotel, they always have trouble finding our reservations. We have not had enough beds each time. We've had to change rooms each time and take whatever we could make work. Usually having to go buy air beds. Some of the rooms we had to make an acception for didn't have floor space to fit a twin air bed. I will be uninstalling this app” – 2/5 in Play Store

Ehsan Ul haq Malik: “amazing app 💯 worthy 👏 🙌 👌 ❤️ even words are not enough to explain about this app. i have been to many places in the world i have used it like my tour guide a best friend etc. easy to book easy to change the dates if you are changing your plan you can change your dates in few seconds. the best thing this app is real they only charge you what they are asking for. normally when we book in different apps we don't know the amount which is hidden.

Victor P: “This app has gone downhill in the last few months. On the conversation screen, the keyboard overlaps the text box so you can't check what you're typing. Some text boxes don't auto capitalize text. I'm getting a pop-up to set up my home as a host. I don't own a home... Notification indicators also sometimes don't update in the app. Message notifications are not dismissed when a message is read inside the app. Definitely needs a strong bug fixing push.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Micki CO: “Seamless and intuitive with full functionality, one of the rare exceptions where a host or retail seller can make changes just as quickly as the website if not faster. I appreciate the ease of photo sorting, the text notifications and more. For example, I was able to create a guidebook for guests and I can share my URL link effectively. Great stuff!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “This is just an average run of the mill travel site with less tools than most. The last 5 hotels I tried to book I was able to find a better deal elsewhere. There will never be a one size fits all travel site that can function. For example before booking hotel XYZ always check XYZ customer website for deals. My worst experience was I booked a place that was a great deal. I booked my airfare. Found out the technology they use doesn't prevent overbooking. It happened to me AS I was flying there.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Lisa Marie: “I really like using Trivago to book my hotel stays because they're usually pretty good for getting a good deal in a hotel stay in Ocean City MD before peak season starts. If I don't use them, I use Kayak.” – 5/5 in Play Store

James Stainley: “I have received som3 great deals from agoda, but I have also had several major problems with reservations. I have had multiple paid for and made bookings that when I go to the hotel, they can not find my reservation anywhere. After contacting agoda and speaking with a live person each time I have had 3 situations where I had to book an entirely new hotel because agoda would not fix it. With each of these cases I got my money back 3-10 days later. I do not recommend. The savings is not worth it” – 2/5 in Play Store

tariq zafar: “I had difficult time getting started with this application but once you pass all the verifications cycles... maybe it becomes easier. I was at the try when it finally got pass the verification jungle otherwise I was gone. The site had a 'come-on' discount of 10% which I never got because it got lost somewhere in the verification jungle. OMG... going through it via the phone screen was nightmare. Atlast I was able to complete the reservation.” – 2/5 in Play Store

There have been problems on occasion where updates would not work well with VPNs Which is usually needed in Public WiFi travel situations... But, something I have seen for many years occur on occasion is now persistent and I cannot use the app I continually get the message on a blank screen "Too Many Requests Provisioned request rate has been exceeded" and I'm stuck... Please, please get to the root of this and fix it” – 4/5 in Play Store

Jared Garcia: “I booked a car rental through Expedia but unfortunately, was unable to pick it up because I forgot my bank cards. I contacted Expedia immediately to request a refund, but they basically washed their hands of it and told me to contact the rental car company directly. The rental car company wouldn't budge on their no-refund policy, leaving me out of pocket for a service never received. Expedia did nothing to advocate for me as a customer, and the whole experience was incredibly frustrating” – 2/5 in Play Store

Don Ward: “App has a great selection and ease of use. Have been an exclusive user for years. was very happy. However, I am now quite disappointed with the recent change to the rewards program. The earnings were very fair at 10 stays to receive one stay free. This new program is terrible. You earn basically nothing per stay. a few dollars is all. Will likely go back to other hotel specific rewards systems and programs as I used to such as Wyndham and Choice. They are 10-15 stays per free night.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Jennifer Mc: “Be careful of this app! I have to reset my filters very often, even if I am only enlarging the search area. This is annoying, but even moreso because one of my filters is "reserve now, pay later". I like that this AI somehow works more often when searching for two rooms, each with one person. The competition's search rarely works with that request but this one does. If only it kept the filters in place! Can't recommend this app until it's fixed.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Especially if you're flexible with dates & even locations; we were able to get round-trip flights to Australia for $400! I love that Hopper updates you of your price fluctuations; it makes it super easy to book. A couple of times we needed to change flights (once was international) & because we had the insurance, they were able to get us squared away with new flights & refunded for price changes. Love Hopper, best travel app IMHO” – 5/5 in Play Store

Marleia Alfaro: “Hopper is pretty great. I love the peak calendars, the notifications when prices change, purchasing tickets is easy. Usually things run smoothly There was one instance where we had issues getting a hold of customer support. The last time we called them for an immediate issue regarding a cancelled flight and return flight after missing our connecting flight. On the call, we were passed around several times just to be told they couldnt help us, they'll call us back for approval and they never did” – 3/5 in Play Store

Love the ability to track any flight (even see where it is enroute) and the ability to view all departures and arrivals for ALL flights at any airport. I also like the fly to anywhere feature that will show current best rates all over the country, displayed on a map. It also keeps track of all past trips and total miles travelled. I can't think of any negatives.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I have to lower my rating for this app. Over the years it became more difficult to use. The newest layout (as of 3/30/20) is horrible. Why would you have options to pick flights - hotels - cars AND a search bar that does not have any function other than.... Opening a new screen. If you select what you want by clicking on the icon (flight, hotel or car) why do you have to click on the 'search box' again in order to finally start putting your cities and dates?

Brax Evans: “Their "deals" are not anything that the hotel isn't willing to pricematch if you call them directly and ask for that price... doing this allows for a much more pleasant and helpfull customer service experiance. And as far as the APP vs the website goes...room pictures never work on the APP. I have to go to the website to view pics of the room I want. The app doesn't come with any extra discounts. Skip it. Delete it. Don't need it.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Kai von der Lancken: “this app usually lands in the top 3 lowest room rates, amongst all the travel/lodging site options...and applies decent discounts if you join their vip member club. pretty disappointing that each time they send a promo code to use for additional savings, it seems like it's always expired or not applicable with my purchase, even if it seems like the purchase qualifies under all circumstances. still has some of the best overall pricing relative to value, in my opinion.” – 4/5 in Play Store

The customer service is almost non existent! I got stuck in a DISGUSTING room with old trash and human hair all over the place. Person on the phone gave me an equivalent of store credit. I couldn't get my money back. And I had to search for another hotel on my own. ONLY use this app if you've SEEN the location before.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Very simple and easy layout. We used them to book a few hotels this year. Keep in mind that they are not always the cheapest. I just saved quite a bit more using a competitor! Remember to check around. Also, wish the Developer would ADD the resort fee scam to the total price. It's unfair in comparison and wastes time.

I know it is there because I found it once but despite my best efforts, I can't find it again. It would be really handy if it was just a choice under "trips".” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “This will be my first and last time booking with Travelocity. If I were you, I'd just use the app to locate places and call places individually to inquire about reservations outside of the app. They have misleading descriptions on the rooms. You think you're getting something and you're not. Do not purchase the Travel guard insurance if you are looking to rent a car. Just purchase insurance when you pick up the car.

Everytime it says either wrong login info or account doesn't exist, wrong email postal combo. I mean there is no way it will let you in. User interface is good. But the back end needs fixing. And the stupid games you have to play to login should end. Its such a waste of time. People don't have so much spare time when they are just trying to get a hotel before midnight and you have to play games just to see that it wont recognise your username and password.” – 5/5 in Play Store
