I love being able to find interesting things to do on vacation. The reviews are reliable and almost always helpful.
Trip Advisor
by iamlegit1 on 2019/07/18 15:13
I always check TA before I go anywhere! It would be nice to have some discounts or coupons to use! When booking throughtrip advisor
Awesome!
by Excited Camper on 2019/07/18 13:50
My son recommended this app to me, and I love it! It is so easy to check out attractions and tourist destinations in cities I visit. It is wonderful to be able to research flights, hotels, and attractions in one place. I wish I had gotten it a long time ago! I highly recommend it!!
Stop the update!
by Ljgordon on 2019/07/18 13:42
Update—why ask me if I like this new app? I have said I hate it. I don’t want to see other people’s pictures unless I choose to. I use Trip Advisor for everything. I HATE the new format. The front page used to show me my latest searches. Now it’s other people’s pictures and places I would never go. Let me personalize it. The first page is now useless.
Excellent resource for travelers
by World Traveler 1969 on 2019/07/18 13:41
I have been using and writing reviews on this site for the past three years. Actually I have enjoyed writing on all of the places that I have visited. It is a great way for me to keep track of all my favorite places and to share them with others who also are passionate about travel. Dr. Erick J. Mann PhD Professor of History and Fulbright Scholar
It’s my go-to site

I use TripAdvisor whenever we travel.
Great place

Delicious desser, mouth wattering! Nice place place for gourmet people👌 Highly recommended.
Usually excellent, but not always
by Lincster45 on 2019/07/18 07:22
I have used TripAdvisor for several years, and have been generally happy with it. Recently there have been several disappointments. I had a one day stop over in Tam Ky, Vietnam, and when looking for restaurants and activities discovered TripAdvisor has a hard time distinguishing Tam Ky from Hoi An, which is about 35km to the north. Finally found what I was looking for, but was disappointed in this flaw. In Dong Hoi there are places that have been long closed, and reported, like 23CM, that no longer exist. This was my go to application, but of late has been a bit disappointing. Still, with a little patience you can glean a lot of good information.

Not as big of a fan
by Winding1 on 2019/07/18 05:20
The site has gotten too confusing. I used to be able to get answers quickly. Now you get contradicting answers. I wanted the best tours regardless of type. Sadly, you can’t get a good answer anymore.

Wouldn’t travel without it!

We’ve been using TripAdvisor for years and depend on it for new ideas as well as addresses, phone numbers, menus and reviews! It’s great!
Everything you need to know it’s here !!

Beware
by SFhank on 2019/07/17 21:43
This site uses a fraudulent booking agency called Cancelon who will take your money without providing the booking you thought you had. They took my money and have not provided a booking and will not respond to any of my emails. I refuse to use this site again do to their association with this vendor. Beware. Do not book through this site!
Reliable
by gkwsr on 2019/07/17 19:05
The ratings are accurate and information, I wander around the great American West a lot either on a Harley or dragging a travel trailer and use TA regularly. Much better than Yelp ......
Too much emphasis on selling tours
by 4Beverley on 2019/07/17 18:08
I used to love TripAdvisor and it was my go to site before booking any trip or hotel. But in the past year the website has turned to sales of ads and pushing tours and paid services rather than focusing on reviews from readers. I’m wondering if this site has not been purchased by a tour company.
Trip Advisor My Go To
by renedrewsmom on 2019/07/17 16:47
I use Trip Advisor to check on reviews of restaurants, resorts and over all things to do in places we vacation. I also look up restaurants in our city to check on reviews and post. Trip Advisor offers a lot of information and hasn’t steered me wrong yet. Great App!!!
Great way to know what and where
by Ghala2 on 2019/07/17 16:26
Helps me a lot with my travel to plan where to go, what to do and where to eat and stay.
Trip Advisor App
by RSK848 on 2019/07/17 15:24
I love the Trip Advisor App. It is easy to use and has a wealth of information. You can find information on hotels all over the world, destinations for travel and activities once you get there amongst so much more. There are recent reviews on the modes of transportation, restaurants and attractions. Therefore, you will read useful information and opinions. Just go to the App Store and download the app. Who knows? You may even become a reviewer of the places you've been, the sights you saw, the meals you ate at the many restaurants, or you can introduce new places or tours not listed, and Trip Advisor will research and verify there is such a place, notify you, and then you can write a review. How cool is that?! You can introduce not only the readers on the site to the new place but also you have introduced Trip Advisor to it! Use the app conveniently to find your travel needs easily or to just find a nice restaurant for lunch or dinner, then read reviews on it. Enjoy!
RCI Vacation Village in in the Berkshires in Hancock,Ma
by gghhgghhgghhgghh on 2019/07/17 15:13
Billed as a Gold star resort was a huge disappointment. We had a terrible experience at check in which spoiled our week. i am an Inn Season’s member,trading into RCI for the week.I ,in my name,on my credit card,had made the reservation etc.When i arrived,the reservation was in my x-wife’s name.Carol rather than Virginia.We were always co-owners so that should never have been a problem.I had my membership card.I had bought Carol out in the divorce.I owned the points outright. It wasn’t just that Judy,the woman at check in wasn’t going to let me check in,she was dismissive and very rude.i can’t remember ever being treated so nasty.i was shocked. It took over 15 minutes before Judy and her equally dismissive supervisor allowed me to check in. I then bravely told then i had been told to request a 2 bed room at check in.Immediately,without opening the computer,i was told the resort was full,there was a music festival that week-end and besides i wouldn’t want to spend $25/ night.i said i was happy to pay.They insisted no availability. The resort was nowhere near full.The music festival was the following week-end.The 2 bed room beside us was empty! We had no towel or linen exchange though we called for it and we were entitled to it once a week. There is no cleaning or trash emptying etc unless you pay for it. Our room was quite dingy. i will say that maintenance was helpful .Our shower/tub was jammed and needed a new faucet .They stayed til they replaced it. I would never,ever stay here again and i would have left if i had any options or i thought for one minute that they would refund my points. If i had not stayed at other RCI resorts,i would hesitate to do so again.But i have and this is not the usual. I will certainly look carefully at reviews before i book a place again. It didn’t occur to me at the time but i was so puzzled by the rude and dismissive treatment by Judy at check-in,that i tried to figure out what could possibly have triggered it.I was even angrier when it occurred to me that it might have been because i was a lesbian!
Love trip advisor
by Hottody on 2019/07/17 14:13
Trip advisor is an amazing app that tells you the best things to do from real people who have really done them
Super helpful
by ribbler95 on 2019/07/17 14:13
I really like this one. It has helped me out of more than one travel jam. Accurate and up to date info.
Solid App
by Open Thinking Mind on 2019/07/17 12:53
I never had an issue with this application. It is built in a very user friendly way. Could be improved in the way of map searching but overall it is a great app.
Useful mobile app for travel info I needed
by Sunnydayalways on 2019/07/17 12:08
A great useful mobile app to explore place of attraction and information needed for my travel plans. Also easy for submitting reviews and photos, a platform for nice sharing of the places being traveled. Great app!
Very informative and very simple to leave a review.
by clearwaterdreamer on 2019/07/17 11:24
This app makes it very easy to leave reviews on places you visited. I use it quite regularly before booking rooms for hotels or heading to restaurants.
Used to be a good app
by Oweky on 2019/07/17 10:59
App was so much better before it started selling packages. Now u have to weed through so much crap before you can find the actual real reviews and pictures instead of the ones that paid to be on there.
Swiss International Air
by Kool1944 on 2019/07/17 10:12
I would never fly Swiss Air again. The food was inferior, aircraft extremely crowded; ground staff denied my bag for overhead bin while my husband’s identical bag was permitted in the overhead bin with room to spare. This is not consistent service and causes negative opinion about Swiss Air.
Fantastic App
by Moore to be heard on 2019/07/17 05:50
Love this app for making plans when traveling. Discount tickets on attractions and lower prices on lodging.
Great info
by Mamagrigs on 2019/07/17 04:42
I refer to Trip Advisor for almost everything when we are traveling and so far, we have always been fortunate in following the reviews.
Use all the time
by david&cindy on 2019/07/17 04:15
Trip advisor has been my companion on 5 continents for a decade. It is a fabulous guide for the traveler, both structured and unstructured travel.
Love the app
by T_taisia on 2019/07/17 02:58
Very concerning to use. Can operate both, personal page and business
Really helpful!
by Raquette-Bound on 2019/07/17 02:30
Am fairly new to TripAdvisor, but already I’ve gained great travel tips for a variety of locations. Am grateful to the folks who post detailed reviews.
Convenient
by Ydmstr on 2019/07/17 01:25
Provides who, what, when, where and how to get there all in one place, along with a review.
Why is it so hard to research hotels by rating!?!
by sb3036 on 2019/07/17 01:04
I usually use the website. This app is awful. Will delete.
Great app

Made vacation great!!
by B1crz4mc on 2019/07/17 00:12
We used Trip Advisor to find everything from a pet friendly hotel to zip lining to caves. It was great for finds places in a new place!!
I love and depend on this app
by Bevalonia on 2019/07/17 00:09
Best app I my opinion, especially for people who travel and need honest advice and reviews. I love doing reviews to help others and I appreciate reviews others have written.
Trip Advisor is the best!
by lulopske on 2019/07/16 23:51
We never leave home on a trip w/o constantly checking Trip Advisor concerning great restaurants in the area we are traveling thru. We find it to be invaluable!! We leave tomorrow on a 16 day trip & will wear it out. Love it....
Invaluable Resource
by Wilma929 on 2019/07/16 23:46
I use Trip Advisor every time I travel. There is so much information available to plan for a trip nearly anywhere.
Best Travel App, by far!
by CaptChiefColCam on 2019/07/16 23:46
TripAdvisor is a wonderful sight to easily find out the best restaurants hotels and places to go and things to do. I’ve used it in the USA and all around the world and The reviews and the ratings are very good, not perfect but very good. Any restaurant in the top 10 is usually very good place to go. But some down lower are also good. I think the algorithm depends on how many reviews. So try!
Love the app!
by josiemae51 on 2019/07/16 23:12
I rely on this app for all my travel information!!

Air Maui Helicopter tour
by Nana Fife on 2019/07/16 19:20
January 2019 went on an Air Maui helicopter tour with Shaylan. Most gorgeous morning on both Maui and Molokai. Was a bit concerned about motion sickness but Shaylan was a great pilot. It was AMAZING! Saw beautiful green mountains, cliffs, bright blue ocean, elephant rock, mountain goats on the top of one of the mountains, whales in the ocean, and lots of water falls — even a 13 tier waterfall. It was gorgeous and amazing. Thanks Shaylan for a great tour. Only draw back was on the video. The pictures were great but the narration was not really clear. But the pictures are very memorable.
Plany your journey

Amazing app to plan your trips, vacations, and adventures!!
Works for me.
by bpp in TX on 2019/07/16 18:56
I use this a lot to read the reviews and comments he. Arriving in a new place. Really helps one by learning the local area.
The best travel app. Everyone knows this. AirBnB close second.
by The dreamt benign on 2019/07/16 18:50
Trip advisor gives you everything you need to know, but you already knew that.
Overly commercialized
by iPhone Abroad on 2019/07/16 18:22
This app used to be #1, but as they have tried to sell tours more and more, the ability to use them for info as gone way down.
Great app for traveling!
by Genepow on 2019/07/16 16:49
This is my go-to app for restaurants, especially when I'm traveling. I haven't used the app for other purposes so I can't evaluate its usefulness there. I try to review restaurants after dining there. Sometimes I wait until several meals so I can more accurately rate the experience. That's the one fault I find with the app - you cannot modify a review once published. Other than that one flaw, this is a great app.
Does the job
by Serie2323 on 2019/07/16 16:48
Wish it was more user friendly especially in the forum.
First stop before a trip
by cconaf2 on 2019/07/16 16:40
I always look to see what there is to do before I go, using TripAdvisor.
Great app!

This a great app. Enter where you are going and it also gives you fun things do do
My go to info spot
by Femmgurl on 2019/07/16 15:51
I have found this app to be SO helpful. I have used it for years and if you are discerning and read a good sample of reviews you can choose wisely and have great experiences all over the world
So helpful!
by Chino Cathy on 2019/07/16 15:20
Used it every day on our last trip to Carlsbad Caverns. Saved us finding a hotel each night.
Login broke
by legapur9 on 2019/07/16 14:56
I can’t create an account, or use Facebook or Google for login... they all give errors. And the app heavily restricts functionality of your not logged in... how did this pass by QA?!?!
Great app
by Limeyosu2000 on 2019/07/16 14:19
Only gripe is once you review, there is no way to go back and edit.
Stellar resource!
by vb95959 on 2019/07/16 13:56
Have found excellent information and options using Trip A. Drilling down into the reviews and comments is critical. That said, important to contribute input! Keep on keepin on💖
Love it

Why change a great task!!

Super helpful with picture and reviews from actual guest. Also the convenience of booking in the app.
Very helpful
by Watching us ha ha on 2019/07/16 11:22
Trip advisor is extremely helpful. I check this app first before booking hotels restaurants and things to do. The one time I didn’t check hotel reviews, I booked hotel by hotel chain recognition only. Wow so disappointed. Went on trip advisor after and saw all the bad reviews. Lesson learned. Check trip advisor before booking!
We love the app
by pjs 623 on 2019/07/16 11:10
We are retired and get to travel frequently so we enjoy TripAdvisor to help us find restaurants,motels and things to see and do.I love being a senior advisor and getting to share with others what we discover!!!! I am sure that like us you agree with some opinions and disagree with others,that’s natural as we come from many different backgrounds but for me it is very helpful. Enjoy your travels and Gods speed.
What happened to Tripadvisor?
by HX911 on 2019/07/16 10:19
I used TA a lot and really found it useful - learned to take reviews with a grain of salt, but there was so much information available.. now i search and cant find half the restaurants and bars i can clearly see - somehow TA has lost (to me) its usefulness. Sad
Love this site
by jpsmithct on 2019/07/16 10:12
Very informative and helpful, a true go to travel site.
Fast, Easy and Rewarding
by Sodium-Chloride on 2019/07/16 09:45
In minutes, you can see all your hotel and sight seeing options. If you see what you like, booking is easy and worry free. In addition to great prices, there are cash back rewards from affiliates and partners. It makes vacation planning a pleasure.
The Travel Essential
by dspotter on 2019/07/16 07:46
Whether I’m in town or out, TripAdvisor ratings and reviews through the app make decisions on where to go and what to try out easy. App is useful and prefer using it over their website.
The Traveller’s Go-To App

Not as useful now
by Chopstick224 on 2019/07/16 06:23
I use this app when traveling to keep track of restaurants I've eaten at, and can no longer sort by city. So, not as useful for me any longer.

Changed travel forever
by tnBsKnees on 2019/07/16 01:59
Much better odds of finding what will please with this app. Alderman less likelihood of being disappointed.
Certainly Room for Improvement
by Rockydogz on 2019/07/16 01:13
As a senior executive who has traveled worldwide, I’m amazed at the inconsistency of the reviews and struggle with how high some establishments are rated that offer mediocre product and service. Don’t really have a recommendation on how to improve the quality and consistency of this service. How can 9 people rate a restaurant 5 stars and one person gives it a horrible review. Very perplexing.
Deletes reviews
by Jessicake2 on 2019/07/16 00:17
I’ve written several reviews and had them deleted. I’ve tried changing the format, style, what the review says but it’s always deleted. I’ve reached out to trip advisor support to find out why. No response or help

Wonderful tool!
by Bryce & Marsha F on 2019/07/15 21:42
We use this app every where we go. I not only research and review but I also enter my own reviews. I would be lost on trips without it. We just moved to a new city and it is very helpful there too.
Revised: Super slow
by Tom78587 on 2019/07/15 21:39
7/15: we're back to what we'd expect from this app. Looking good. Old: This new version has a different layout, but the functionality is abhorrent. There's a 1 second delay between when you tap, and when the app decides to respond. If this gets resolved, I will change my rating.
Great place for some quick dives.
by nashabn@outlook on 2019/07/15 21:31
Gaspar took us out and was very patient and chill. Saw a few whitetips a turtle and a long tail ray. Everything is provided for you as far as gear which is nice that it’s included in the price. Definitely will dive with this company again.
Go to First
by TessD68 on 2019/07/15 20:54
We use Trip Advisor to help make itineraries for current trips as well as to identify spots we might like to visit in the future. Most reviews are spot on. Certainly seeing a variety of opinions is helpful. We often find an out of the way attraction or restaurant that we would not have known about without Trip Advisor.

They’ve been bought
by Downtownab on 2019/07/15 19:40
This used to be a valuable site. But they’ve sold out and now don’t support the tourist. But the hotels and sites that pay the most to advertise. Hate them now.
Good solid App
by Andy Darmody on 2019/07/15 19:07
Easy enough to navigate around
Love the TripAdvisor app !
by gigi4.4 on 2019/07/15 19:01
I love reading the reviews before we go somewhere so we can decide where we want to go before we get their like the best place’s to get a lobster roll while in Boston or the best place to get cannolis like mike’s pastry in Boston !
Consistency of cuisine
by """nik on 2019/07/15 18:41
I like using the App. It’s a good place to validate dining choices . Search is quick and very user friendly
Great When Taveling
by Brain Waker on 2019/07/15 17:38
My husband and I use Trip Advisor when we travel to find good places to eat and fun things to do in the local region. I always feel I can count on other travelers to give an honest evaluation.
Very helpful app
by damienangl on 2019/07/15 15:18

Great app
by Wo lol:) on 2019/07/15 13:11
I always look at this app and the reviews when picking restaurants out of town. They are usually spot on reviews and some come with pictures
Fun way to see what people think
by Kelise 427 on 2019/07/15 11:26
I have used trip advisor to look up places of interest and have added my own reviews....the app is friendly and helpful!
Best way to travel.
by Shame, Shame,Shame. on 2019/07/15 10:12
I love traveling the world and I use TripAdvisor wherever I am, it’s a great way of finding good restaurants etc. when you are not familiar with the area. You just have to read a few reviews to get a really good feel for the type of food and service you’ll get.
Don’t travel without checking
by Man of Pan on 2019/07/15 07:05
I never travel without checking on Trip Advisor. I find a lot of the reviews to be helpful. (Some of the negative reviews are helpful, too). I read the negative reviews and decide if the review is accurate or the reviewer is just being a be-yatch.
Such a great App!
by ProblematiqueProblem on 2019/07/15 05:41
So easy to use and informative! Love how you can book tours and gets tickets for events easily! This is my go-to app when booking trips, before and during! Keep it up TA! Would love to work for the company in fact! lol

I use this app quite often. It’s so nice to be able to read reviews from normal people like me because it helps me make an informed decision of where to eat and what places to see. I don’t know what I would do without it when I leave town or go on vacation. Before I go on vacations, I plan ahead of time by reading the reviews on my trip advisor app. It’s easy to use and I love the “near me” option. I like that I’m able to provide others with feedback as well. This app is one of my favorites!
Trip advisor never lets me down.
by Sherise R on 2019/07/15 02:47
I use a variety of travel apps and I always wind up using trip advisor to get thee most information and best deals and packages.
Great full breakfast included!!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Quality Inn in Durango. We were so pleased with the personal attention we received by all staff. Nycole was the nice lady that prepared our fried eggs and she got them just like we requested. Thanks for the good service.
Great for Traveling!
by LB7123 on 2019/03/12 13:00
This app is so helpful in planning trips to various cities! I can see what hotels are available in what area of town and the pricing for each. The mapping program pops up which makes this process very quick. I can touch various hotels and see exact reviews which allows me to see if their stars are based on recent good reviews or bad reviews. This has allowed me to visit new cities and still get a good nights sleep! Woohoo! The restaurant section allows me to pick via map to a specific part of town or via type of food I’m hungry for at the moment. It also lists it via cheap eats or fine dining. This is very helpful! The things to do has been an awesome part of this app and is my personal favorite part. I can look at a specific city and find museums, art galleries, gardens, nature trails, etc. However, that’s not all this app does! I can also use it via the map to find unusual things to do along my drive. Yes, rural towns have hidden gems in them! And some of those drives in the middle of nowhere have hidden scenic lookouts or historic museums that I would have missed if it were not for this app. I’m so thankful for it and literally use it all the time! I highly recommend it!
Love it for business and personal trips!
by NuclearWynter on 2019/02/24 19:29
I travel quite a bit for business and even more for pleasure and this app is perfect for both. On business trips, I can put in the city I’m visiting and when I’m going and it gives me restaurants options and the most popular things to do. I can read reviews from other helpful travelers that give me thing to looks out for and best times to go places. When I travel for pleasure, I start with Trip Advisor. I get a destination in mind and save hotels/vacation homes, activities and transportation info to the trip and have it all planned out before I book. I also use the app for planning with others. I planned a girls trip to Jamaica with my friends and was able to send them the details to review before we booked. I was able to book a lake house in NC for a Thanksgiving dinner my family is planning this year. I think the next step for the app is allowing splitting of payments for different things or allowing multiple payers. Also being able to joint plan a trip would be nice. Overall though I have no complaints about the app and love using it. I love leaving reviews for places I’ve been an helping other fellow travelers.
See Amsterdams Hidden Gems by Bike (Stephan)
by Viv mom on 2019/07/10 14:32
Before the tour even started I fell in love with Stephan. I wanted to book his tour but the times he had available conflicted with other tours we had arranged. No problem!! He opened another date for us that worked, and let us know his colleague Martin would be leading the group. Very clear directions on where to meet, what to bring and what to expect. We had a really fun time touring a part of Amsterdam with Martin. A world class cyclist (and father of a young child), Martin led the eight of us around, being very attentive to our safety while also explaining the history of whatever we were passing by at the time. Even though we were encouraged to bring a water bottle and sunscreen, we were very pleasantly surprised when Martin opened his backpack on the ferry (on an unseasonably hot day) and started handing out snacks as well as water bottles and sunscreen. It wasn't a very big backpack but the water bottles coming out seemed endless! It turned into an incredibly fun afternoon. By giving us tips about riding safely in Amsterdam, we felt comfortable renting our own bikes a few days later. And we survived!!
Love this app but use improvements
by Teddy bear babe on 2018/08/18 17:29
I use this app almost every time we go to a new city to find what food is good and where to eat. That being said there are some improvements I would like to see. 1. For vegetarians and vegans the app can be a little difficult to navigate. One change I would like to see is in phrasing and searching filters. There is a difference between vegetarian/ vegan restaraunts and a restaurant having vegan/vegetarian options. The app currently does not show the difference which can be vexing. 2. Another change I would like to see is in the search. Often times i go on here to find food between point a and point b but currently there is not a way to search along that route or slightly off from it. Yes you can go through each address and see but for tourists this can be difficult and additional time to your task. It’s a good time to mention that even if these changes don’t occur I will keep using the app but it would be nice to see a change to help support those of us with different diets. And not just non-meat eaters but, gluten free eaters, paleo people or even those that have a lot of allergies to food such as nuts, milk, eggs and more.
This is the best place to find ratings and details about hotels, restaurants, etc.
by Bob WW on 2019/02/12 17:30
I evaluate most of the hotels, restaurants, and local sights on TripAdvisor. I only rarely have to give bad ratings since I have checked in advance on TripAdvisor. By reading many reviews you can quickly get a good idea of each rated place. Note that some reviewers are always negative - either they are never satisfied or they are so grumpy that they have brought out the worst in everyone they meet. When hundreds of visitors have given a place “excellent” or “very good” ratings, usually the few bad ratings are due to such trolls. I usually do read several negative ratings - bad days do occur and there are flaws in everything and it can help you to notice those flaws - but if most people liked it, I will probably like it too. I have used “Yelp” at times for restaurant reviews (sometimes searching sends me to Yelp). It is ok, but I have not usually found it more convenient. I am less familiar with it - and I have never posted a rating there.
I found many people to be rude for no reason
by TiNyJALEPENO on 2019/03/08 15:56
I suggest looking elsewhere and honestly reddit is much more helpful. I posted a couple things, but they were simple questions about atms. People then told me I should research and soon I would be asking about shootings where I am staying? I don’t get how I can be so stupid for simply asking about the atms and which ones to use because people’s cards were being read and used in Indonesia. I then went on to read multiple reviews and I was really taken back by how many unnecessarily rude people are on there. Some people on there do ask naive questions, but the point of the app is to help people. Anytime I told someone they were being rude my comment was deleted by the staff. I’m not sure why because I never cursed I just told the people they were being unnecessarily rude and pretentious. But maybe pretentious was taken as not following their guidelines? Because technically I called them a name? Not sure. Anyways besides people being not very helpful I also found reviews to be lacking. There are so many spots I went to in Puerto Escondido that were amazing and not mentioned. So I would suggest speaking to locals wherever you go. Trip advisor may be helpful to some, but honestly I think reddit is much better. I thought Yelp was bad, but this app and it’s staff are in no way helpful.
Good App
by zionawe on 2019/03/02 16:18
I use this app a lot when traveling and even more so in the planning phase. Lot of great information from reviews for places we never have seen but might be considering. TripAdvisor has made traveling much easier, especially when in need of a hotel after being on the road all day sightseeing. We rarely spend more than one night in a location so we can cover a lot more ground and this app has allowed us to be extremely flexible. The only thing I really don't care for on the app is that I have to enter a city name to find things to do in a particular area if the park or activity is not common knowledge. For instance, if we're thinking of visiting Newberry National Volcanic Monument, in Oregon, I can't just type the monument's name because it'll try to take me to a town called Newberry in one of five different states, none of which are in Oregon. So, in order for the app to bring up the monument, I have to type "Bend, Oregon." I should just be able to type in the name of the park since it's already in TripAdvisor's system. Maybe it's a small thing , but it really annoys me. Other than that it's a great app.
Great App But Could Use Improvements
by Island Sparkles on 2018/04/29 12:03
I use TripAdvisor quite often to review my experiences at hotels, restaurants and attraction areas as well as read the reviews of others when deciding on areas and places to visit. It would be great if TripAdvisor would add cruise lines to their portfolio of things that can be reviewed as I am getting ready to take a cruise and would love to share my experience when I return. I have had some difficulties when trying to write reviews for locations or places that are not yet listed in the app. This has been very frustrating as you do not realize that your review will not get published until after you go through all that effort to write the review and include pictures etc. Additionally, I would like to see some incentives or benefits for members that take the time to write all of these reviews to inform the general public of their experiences. I have written 105 reviews, and I have not yet received any type of incentives i.e. discounts to restaurants, hotels, attractions etc. Granted, I do not write these reviews for any type of reward. I write them because it benefits me when I read others reviews when trying to decide on things to do and places to go; however, I just think it would be nice for TripAdvisor to give some sort of gesture to show that they appreciate what we as reviewers do for them. Overall, I do enjoy using this app and will continue to use the app as needed because the benefits outweigh their need for improvements.
Love the app, however...
by Soflaguy63 on 2018/04/10 18:36
I have used the Trip Advisor app for years and found it to be very helpful. However, in this era of stored data abuses, I find it annoying that I can not erase my recent search history. Some will argue why this is an issue so I will share an issue that a co-worker had with the Trip Advisor app. My co-worker was planning on surprising his wife with a romantic mid-week trip at an oceanfront resort 40 miles from his home. He used Trip Advisor to find the best accommodations available. He has the Trip Advisor app on both his iPhone and iPad. After determining that this type of trip wasn’t in his budget, he decided to wait and save a little bit of money each week. Well, sometime later, his wife was using the iPad and Trip Advisor to research a restaurant in the area for a family dinner. While she was in the app, she noticed his history. She was also noticing that he was taking money from their savings account (money he was saving for their romantic weekend.) Anyhow, my co-workers wife’s man hating sister had her convinced that he was having an affair. No need to keep going on this story as I am sure you all get it. Once Trip Advisor allows search history to be deleted, I will amend my 2 star rating.
This is “legal” scam now!?
by Getinktattoo on 2019/06/29 17:09
I just changed phone and was trying to open TripAdvisor in my new one and just realize this craziness.... be aware... it doesn’t sound correct or even legal (but I guess that if the ask persuasion and we, the users, granted, then is on us.... one of the options to signing into TripAdvisor is using my google email/account... TripAdvisor request me roc ALLOW them to be able “to see and download all my google accounts emails addresses”!!!!! What is that!!! How is that to use an app about things to do or where to eat in any given area I need to pay that service with my privacy and the Privacy of the people that emails me!!!!!? Be aware! We all are used to the “scroll down and agree” and select box and agree to be able to use most accounts and apps now day... must of the times are about fair use of apps and legal reasons..some other times is about allowing the apps to use our location and maybe cameras and being able to storage photos in our devices.... so we go ahead and click allow or agree just because we are so used to trust as no other way to get around or as part of the process... but what TripAdvisor is doing asking permission to see and download our private info... doesn’t sound right!! At all!!!
Great app but tired of some of the questions
by Hearing in LA! on 2019/03/06 22:45
I like the app and have used it for both evaluating and reviewing restaurants, hotels, and things to do all over the world. It is fairly easy to use but have found 1 issue that was only cleared up after I sent a message to Trip Advisor. When adding a new location of any type, a website or social media listing is shown being “optional.” I have found that if the new location does not have a website or not listed on social media, TA will reject the listing without explanation. This was very frustrating after going through all the detail of listing 2 new restaurants and having them rejected without explanation. There should be a note requiring website or social media address before going through details of a new listing. A point that not only perturbs but concerns me greatly is I am totally offended by constantly being asked if a restaurant offers halal food. It is very discriminatory to single this out. I do not nor will I ever eat this food so stop asking me this offense question!!!!
Really helps RVers, more & more as people utilize
by frequent TA user on 2018/02/19 02:30
In travel, this app is priceless! Particularly traveling to a new destination, helps tremendously with restaurant info. and directions! Ditto for events, attractions. Much better than Around Me, which we hardly use anymore. Even at home, we use it when the inevitable question “where should we go eat?” arises. Especially when wanting something other than our usual go-tos. Breakfast lunch or dinner, or even Happy Hr. it sure helps. Can really tell a difference in the App since we retired 3 years ago and began more extended RV trips - more RV parks and public campgrounds being listed and reviewed, all the time. Pictures help soo much as well as specific site info., amenities, when trying to find a place to camp. And Especially when looking for a place to eat, sightsee or shop for fresh seafood/meats in a new place, we find TA invaluable. The more people use and review, the better it gets. And the app updates have made it better. Keep up the good work, TA!
Trip Advisor App
by RSK848 on 2019/07/17 15:24
I love the Trip Advisor App. It is easy to use and has a wealth of information. You can find information on hotels all over the world, destinations for travel and activities once you get there amongst so much more. There are recent reviews on the modes of transportation, restaurants and attractions. Therefore, you will read useful information and opinions. Just go to the App Store and download the app. Who knows? You may even become a reviewer of the places you've been, the sights you saw, the meals you ate at the many restaurants, or you can introduce new places or tours not listed, and Trip Advisor will research and verify there is such a place, notify you, and then you can write a review. How cool is that?! You can introduce not only the readers on the site to the new place but also you have introduced Trip Advisor to it! Use the app conveniently to find your travel needs easily or to just find a nice restaurant for lunch or dinner, then read reviews on it. Enjoy!
Love The App Except . . .
by rekampam on 2019/03/04 16:06
One of the best Travel Apps available, with access to helpful reviews to help make better destination decisions. And because reasonable reviews help us make travel decisions, we also like to post solid reviews that might assist others. The one real difficulty with the Trip Advisor App is posting photos to reviews, even one’s own reviews. It seems that even when following Trip Advisor’s own HOW-TO directions, it is difficult to successfully add photos. Either the app wants access to all (thousands) of the photos on our devices, or using the “Profile/Intro/Upload The Photo/Add a Location Tag” method allows the app to see only the few photos in the “Camera Roll” and “My Photo Stream” folders, but will not allow access any of the specific “Albums” on our phone or tablet where individual trip photos are stored. If it wasn’t for the photo posting obstacle, the app would get 5 stars. It would be great if a simpler and more straightforward method was available for adding photos. Thanks very much.
Unfortunately, not the best app
by jimmm_nyc on 2019/02/19 04:12
The addresses and maps are often incorrect on TripAdvisor. Many times I’ve made location edits with TripAdvisor and a few times TripAdvisor has accepted & changed the map locations to the correct spot on the map. However, most often TripAdvisor does not edit the map information and the location continues to be completely incorrect. Therefore, I would not depend on TripAdvisor for the correct address or map location. Instagram will do this for you though, with lots of fantastic and beautiful photos on Instagram. There’s plenty of different apps and online resources for you to double check locations of hotel, restaurant, tours, etc because TripAdvisor is not trustworthy on giving the correct location. It’s almost like going to the doctor and getting a second opinion. Always double check the facts! TripAdvisor, I guess, is in its infancy stages and hopefully it will get better. Meanwhile, Instagram exceeds all the other apps for a lot of useful “sharing” information to help you make your decision of where to stay & eat.... & places to visit.
Golden Parnassus! Adults Paradise in Cancun
by cousin Reids dad on 2019/07/03 12:30
Just returned from a week with my two young adult children. It’s our third time there. Many of the guests are return visitors to the resort. I’ve met many guests that have been there ten times or more. The staff are second to none! The hardest working and most personable people in the industry. The food is good and plentiful and the drinks delicious and they keep them coming, One reason that many people return is because of the great service and personality of a bartender named Fonsi. Fonsi is a very hard working and genuine man. He can hold an interesting conversation with anyone. He’s smart , funny and just a magician at making drinks. He remembers your drink and never lets you run dry. If it’s advice that you need as far as where to go and what to do in Cancun, he’s ur guy. We really missed the body shots this year though, they were fun but for some reason not allowed anymore ??? Check it out! You will want to take half of the staff home with you!
Viking Cruise Venice to Athens
by kamabesu on 2019/04/13 15:57
What a remarkable 10 days. It was our first Viking Cruise and it was wonderful. The team that puts together the off ship tours is truly 5 star. The advertising on PBS is spot on. You really do have magical moments with the people of the country you are visiting. It is special and intimate. We had an operatic performance in a villa in Venice. The owner welcomed us to his family home of 700 years and served Prosecco from his vineyards. The performance of famous arias and duets was worthy of The Met. Bravo Don’t miss a day of touring they were all equally spectacular. Food off the ship is much better than on. The Italian Resturant was good. The Chefs table,poor. How many ways can you steam cod? How many courses can you embellish with “espoma “? I guess the answer is unlimited. Our Jr Suite was very spacious and the perk we especially used was free laundry and dry cleaning. The free mini bar was so so as it had lower quality liquor offerings. The crew was fabulous. Very kind and attentive. We look forward to our next Viking Cruise as the tours run seemlessly and are high quality.
The ratings they give to those who review is a scam!
by Dawn3547 on 2018/10/26 23:44
I have submitted nearly 100 reviews over the years which I have enjoyed doing but what bothers me is the “rewards” and badges given to those who review and the badgering they do to lure you into making more reviews to be “the top reviewer in your area”. Or, “you are 2 reviews away from receiving Photographer status”, etc!!!!! I write reviews in order to share my excitement or dissatisfaction with a place of service. The place has to be pretty bad for me to complain- the businesses we review can make or break someone’s business.... that’s a serious responsibility. I take re Jewish g seriously. My reason for 2 stars for Trip Advisor is the giving of rewards for which nothing is actually given. It’s enough reward for me to be able to help a fellow traveler but be straight with your reviewers. If you award “trophies” at least back them up with a small discount on a hotel, or a meal, etc! I am a member of many rewards clubs for gasoline, restaurants, or shopping venues. These are great perks and command my loyalty. Wouldn’t that be nice if Trip Advisor extended this appreciation to its reviewers? Just saying........😁
Dependably yummy!
by iachimo1 on 2019/01/15 22:37
December 2018: Took 2 out-of-town girlfriends. Very tasty lemony chicken breast with capers, rice, grilled asparagus (nightly special) and HGF burger with fries. Creme brûlée delicious. Not too noisy. Late October 2018: Took 7 out-of-town childhood girlfriends. Ultimately it turned out fine BUT a near fiasco at first: our reservation was lost (even though we’d called twice); we ended up after a 30 minute wait asking to seat us anywhere; we ended up as a table of 4 up front and a table of 3 in the very back. Fortunately, everyone liked what they’d ordered: lasagna, a shrimp and pasta dish, chicken, bison burger. Sorry can’t recall more specifically, but basically from the menu. The waitress gave each table a dessert gratis and we loved the creme brûlée! Early October 2018: my companion and I loved our late dinner at the bar! Bison burger for me was tasty, not greasy, nicely topped with cheese and lettuce and tomato. Companion’s chicken sandwich was goodly sized, nicely fried and well seasoned. He really liked the fries too. Wonderful bartender- can’t recall his name, darn it! Lucky to have this in lil ole Weaverville.
Wonderful accommodations and great staff!
by Groovy mini on 2018/04/19 19:23
We stayed at Melia Cozumel over three weeks last month from February 24th through March 12th, 2018. Everything was fantastic, want to give particular high marks to the following employees: Hilario, the beach waiter who was always eager to bring what we wanted- we dont usually drink much but probably did on the days he worked:) Alicia our maid who remembered that we need extra waters for medication etc.. Alberto the waiter in the buffet area who is so friendly and taught us Mayan words , like “show-pee” that means finished, all done. Hassell went over and above at the concierge and the other girl, Tania, was very helpful to assist my calling the airline to extend our trip and help with Spanish translating. Sandra from the office did a good job setting it all up for us. Bryan was very helpful with my printing a few important documents, so patient and calm. Martin, the younger waiter at breakfast was very polite and refilled the coffees quickly. Tania helpful at concierge. On our last night, Jose at at dinner buffet with good with the wine refills. Antonio at breakfast always came with more coffee and water. Those are the standouts I took notes about, although I have to say not one of the staff were ever rude, the activities team was funny and friendly and even though we didnt participate in anything but maybe Bingo once they made us feel welcome if we wanted to. Another enjoyable stay and we look forward to next time! Thank you!
Historic Scotland Explorer Pass
by dmnurse2016 on 2019/06/12 21:26
We were gently pressured to buy the 5 day Historic Scotland Explorer Pass on our visit to Stirling Castle. The ticket concession seller described how we would be saving money and “avoiding the long lines” to buy tickets to enter Edinburgh Castle or any of the 77 Historic Scotland places. We spent 3+ hours enjoying Stirling Castle and had a decent lunch there. 2 days later we went to Edinburgh and entered the Edinburgh Castle. It was cold, windy and very uncomfortable after 1 hour doing the guided tour and the castle guide suggested a pub for lunch instead of eating at the castle cafeteria. We went to the one he suggested, warmed up and returned to see the rest of the castle. When we attempted to re-enter the castle, we were told that our “pass” entitled us to ONE visit to any of the sites. We explained the NO ONE had described this limit on the pass. She then went to page 3 of the pass and showed us the fine print. We were then told even though NO ONE had warned of this limitation on the pass, that if we wanted to go into the castle after our lunch break, we “could buy another ticket”. We decided not to be ugly Americans and left after letting them know we thought it was quite unfair.
A day for me in the air on China Eastern Airlines
by gene and ilana go to Asia on 2018/01/28 07:38
Ilana and I were so excited about our first trip to Asia. Thailand and Cambodia were a dream we’ve had for what seems to be forever. But truthfully I was dreading the long flight. The longest part was from JFK to Bangkok and I imagined us getting there and losing another day sleeping off the jet lag. So we booked our travel in business class for the first time. It was a delight. The service was excellent. From the moment we checked in. Their lounge at the airport was very comfortable. The food on the plane was beautifully prepared and served and the lay flat beds were amazing. We slept 11 of the 14+hours to Shanghai and after a short layover we were on our way again for the final part of our trip. We arrived fresh and ready to tour an exciting city. And it was a pretty good deal cost wise as well compared to the price we got for business class on other airlines. Over all, a great start to our 2 weeks in Asia.
Could be Better
by DaddyOBest on 2019/07/09 12:43
Several flaws that should be fixed for smartphones and some for pcs. Major flaw is adding quick bites to eating establishments. There are no rules on this and restaurants are changed to quick-bites because of someone’s answer etc. By doing this, they are no longer listed as restaurants. Major problem is if you are looking for a great place to eat, TA searches restaurants by default!!! Guess what? The favorite eating place you are looking for doesn’t show up because it is quick-bites. The only way around this is going through several filtering screens and click restaurants and quik-bites when doing a search. I didn’t find this for 6 months and always missed great restaurants. These restaurants missed had order at the counter, bring out your food and refill drinks sometimes but were called qb. I even ran across places that took your order at the table but were labeled qb. TA please fix this and have an easy to find suggestions area to alert you to these problems and many more with feedback given to reporters.
Bill’s Front Porch
by blueeyeddarlin on 2018/12/01 00:39
Hidden Gem in Wilmington especially when you get to see and hear Folkstone Stringband! Lucky enough to be at Bill’s Front Porch when they had live music with a phenomenal Bluegrass Band named Folkstone Stringband! Beers are housemade and the new “Christmas Pants” is smooth and not too sharp. With the romaine lettuce scare, salads are a little slack but still delicious 🍁 quesadilla s are delicious especially the brisket. Their cheese dip is house made but is a little floury not cheesy enough . The craft brews are great with a variety of taste experiences. From the sharp citrus based IPA’s to the smooth new Christmas brew called “Christmas Pants”. By far the smoothest of all the craft brews Bill’s makes. Two members of the waitstaff are the best I’ve encountered. Lindsey and Sandy are some of the best waitstaff I have had. Attentive and on top of everything. Ask for them, you won’t be sorry. They are great!!! Overall Bills is a great eating and drinking establishment, Good food and beverage, but add the great music of Folkstone Stringband and you have a winning combination!

Lost confidence
by marinadoug on 2019/01/28 14:53
My wife and I always check out the reviews for hotels and restaurants and have had great results. The reviews reflect accurately what our experiences have been. We have to weed out some of the negative reviews, some people just have to vent when the world just doesn’t go their way. But now TA is rating with their “Best Value”. My wife and I travel to many of the same cities for work and have learned where to stay and not to stay. Their Best Value is completely false and we must say a completely fake rating for us the consumer. We can’t begin to understand any logic in these ratings. There is no cost association and for sure there is no quality association. We are guessing that TA has sold out to who will pay the most. In the end we have lost confidence in anything they say now and feel we must check other sites to be sure of all our future choices for hotels and restaurants. Such a shame, it was such a good site, you can still switch to consumer ratings....but have they sold out to the highest bidder there, if they are ok making a fake Best Value are they ok with making or modifying reviews to the highest bidder and they become fake.
Plastic Surgery
by cherrydelo on 2018/09/15 13:27
Dr Enrique Alejandro is so so good. I did a lot of research on surgeons in Guadalajara, or Dr Alejandro does most of his work, and compared his technique, his skills, and his training with the best surgeons in New York. My sister-in-law had had work done by Dr. uses the same technique and she looks amazing. I did my research and Dr Alejandro uses the latest under the muscle technique not used by many because they have not had the training. He takes his time and treated me as an individual piece of art, sculpting my face in a way that did not change the way I look but a younger version of myself. I don’t look like “ i’ve had work done”. I’m just younger looking. The Elaen Center in Nuevo Vallarta Connect to the San Javier hospital is clean, the staff professional and caring. Not only that but he would contact me to check up on me, to have me come in for regular checks up without extra charge. He’s young, professional and takes immense pride in his work.
I use it daily to locate the best dining hotels, etc

An Example: my wife & I were driving home from Branson last week, decided to stop for lunch in Harris, Ark., opened trip advisor and searched for “Nearby” restaurants. We found Jessi’s and it was a hidden gem, would have never believed that a restaurant this good would be there. We then continued on and found an extremely good value hotel (Econo lodge) on the outskirts of Little Rock. We could tell from the Traveler reviews that this was a great place to stay the night, and it turned out to be true, absolutely. we then searched for for nearby restaurants, using “Cajun & Creole” dining offerings in the search filter. “Copeland’s came up , and it was wonderful. These examples are from just one day of several hundred days of traveling in the last three years. Trip adviser has been an essential part of our travels, and we’d be “travel dysfunctional” if we didn’t have it in the future.
A great resource when traveling
by KashmirX on 2019/04/04 01:39
I come to rely on this app to find great restaurants in areas I never been before. My coworkers brag about the places I discover from this app. I use it when picking out hotels as well. The reviews help prevent me from staying in some dives. Just because it is $30 cheaper a night than the other hotels doesn’t mean it is a deal. I have made the mistake of saving $5 on a hotel and regretting to this day. Read the reviews and look for patterns in the reviews, do your due diligence on the reviewers also. If a reviewer gave a place a bad grade does that person ever give anyone a good review or is it even their first review. Find out why a business, restaurant or hotel got received a good review or bad review. Then decide if you want to visit that business. This app will save you time and money if you use it and you can find some rare hidden treasures while traveling or right in your hometown.
Prom pics at the Benson
by rebelmom999 on 2018/04/08 05:21
We have stayed at the Benson several times when downtown for events. This weekend was prom and we had plans to take pics at the Japanese Gardens. Unfortunately Oregon had other ideas. In a panic to come up with a dry option for pics I remembered the lovely lobby of the Benson. The valet was sweet and agreed to keep the Jeep up front so the kids didn’t have to park and walk through the rain to get to the lobby. The staff watched for 20 minutes while we captured their wonderful prom in photos before a manager stomped up to inform us that if we weren’t paying for an event we weren’t allowed to take pics in their lobby in order to preserve the “reputation of the Benson”. I thanked him and explained the rain caused us to scramble for an appropriate indoor venue for prom pics. I know the floor staff knew policy and yet allowed the kids this wonderful opportunity. Thank you Benson Hotel. The pics were gorgeous and the kids were thrilled.
3 in 1 Tulum, Snorkeling, cenote/cave expedition in Cancun
by Amy Crossfit on 2019/04/06 21:12
What an amazing experience! Our guides Pepe and Juan picked my so and I up at our resort on time and they were very attentive to the group. They had snacks and water available for us as it was going to be 8 hours before we got to eat lunch. They were very knowledgeable with the history of the Talum Ruins and they made us laugh during this tour. They knew all of our names and took time to take pictures for us too. They were experienced snorkeler and made sure we were all safe. Pepe and Juan made the tour of the cenote and caves so amazing! The lunch was at the cenote site and was fairly good but it was the company of the people in the group that made the lunch so enjoyable. By the end of the day the group became a mini family and we bonded with each other and to our guides. It truly was sad to leave them all and I will remember each member of our group forever!!! Thank you Pepe and Juan!!!
One Of My Top Five Apps!
by Mike22233 on 2017/10/31 19:40
I have used TripAdvisor for nearly ten years. I never travel or try a new restaurant without searching the site and reading the reviews. Recently, I have booked hotels and dinner reservations more frequently using the site. I have read some of the other reviews. I disagree with most of the criticism. I understand that this is a free site and that there is a company behind it that has commercial needs. However, if you have spent enough time using the site and the app, you will recognize the advertising. It's easily maneuvered to find the strictly objective advice. For example, I would prefer that the site did not default to "Best Value" ranking when searching hotels, as it is not fully reflective of hotel rankings by users. However, provided that you remember to change the default setting on each search to "Traveler Ranked", you can find the objective data.
How the World Communicates
by EddieStarr on 2019/06/05 22:49
When you want to know about something you come to TripAdvisor it’s just what you do when you want to learn about experiences fine photography no price points maybe find some good professional tips on how to avoid long lines something really special about a venue and maybe learn something that you’ve never known before so when you go and visit you find something special and Magical Place , TripAdvisor lets you do all of that and much much more, it’s like a collective consciousness of knowledge a dynamic body of growth, each day adds new experiences and people talk about them here , this is where the road comes to communicate and this is where you should come to get information on your next trip and if you have the chance look me up I have a couple reviews and places for you to go it’s a wonderful World let TripAdvisor show you where to go 🙏🏻
Wow - Pasta !!
by JohnZen99 on 2019/04/02 10:43
We ran into this place by accident.... then read about it. We liked the look of the place - very funky but intimate. It seemed to (by comments) have devolved into something slightly ‘touristy’ these days. So we were confused but liked the hand written menu. We read and heard from the greeter that it was important to get a reservation.....(“Don’t be late, you have an hour and a half to eat.”). With all that we waited outside for the place to open at 8 sharp. The prices seemed a tad high when we ordered. TO SUM: The paparredali (sp?) I had was the best pasta I’ve ever tasted. The bisteka I had was tasty. Both dishes were VOLUMINOUS. Very large portions. My wife had the house specialty pasta and lamb. We could have just ordered one pasta dish and a ‘secondi’ and been fine. The atmosphere was terrific, the hard working server and owner/host were friendly. In short - this was 4.5 stars and a nice nice place to discover.
Playa Grande 2017 new year
by Ycnibrc on 2018/01/01 04:34
Well first impression is good. Facility is clean and the hosts and staff are nice. I choose building O for the nice view and short walk to the beach. Building P was all booked. The 1 bedroom is nice and spacious with kitchen 2 bathroom 2 balcony. Get the higher floor 3 or above for better view. We have our first dinner at calina restaurant and it was good. If u want some free credit for food and beverage then do the time share breakfast if u dont care then skip it. The pool is nice and heated i think its a salt water pool it tase like salt water. Beach is very nice however because of the drop off near shore they recommend no swimming but theres people still swim. The beach is very quiet not crowded like cancun mostly because of the current undertow so not too many people swimming. You can walk to the left of the beach and climb over a rock mount then u will be at lovers beach which u can swim and u can see the land end rock arch.

I wrote a review and got auto corrected, didn’t catch it and now I cannot find the EDIT thing. Haven’t seen now if they send me an email to review and edit before it is actually published though. Also It would be nice if somehow the app interfaced with a map without having to go in and out of the app. Many times I am trying to find hotels, restaurants, attractions by locations and proximity and I get tired of having to go back and forth, would be nice to be able to ‘pin/ sticky’ note stuff within the TA app so I don’t have to figure it out all over again. I’ve started taking out my paper map and using sticky notes which works but would be nice to have something user friendly like that within TA app. I have used this app for many years and try to add a review each time I go someplace, and I really depend on this when I travel. Now I just tried to submit and it says my nickname is taken, it’s my nickname so what’s up?
Three Rs at the Residence Inn, Myrtle Beach
by Margaret and Jim on 2019/04/13 15:06
During the week of March 25,2019, Margaret and I enjoyed a very pleasing stay at the new Residence Inn at Myrtle Beach. Fun recreation, tasty refreshments and timeless relaxation. Joe May, Savanah and Paula responded to our needs at the front desk, and Clarissa, Tasha and Teresa ensured that our suite was refreshed each day. Charles at the bar helped with liquid refreshments, and Queens, Donna, Patricia and others provided a delicious breakfast each morning. Dinner at the hotel was sumptuous. Sea Captain’s House and Damon’s served tasty lunches each day. Take you to Glenn for assisting with the television hookup. Although the hotel opened less than two weeks prior to our arrival, minor construction and installation tasks were underway, with no impact on our stay. Chris Funderburk , Sree Organization provided us with a snapshot of the remaking tasks, and offered advise on other Sree operates hotels. Beginning with Mr. May, thank you all for a fantastic, pleasurable vacation.
Hector’s in Mazatlan
by kueso on 2017/11/12 19:36
This Was not a fine dining experience as we expected. I would’ve felt more welcome at Burger King and been better taken care of. Our whole experience from ordering to checking out was less than 45 minutes. The waiter took our drink order and we only got one Cube of ice after requesting a full glass. After he brought Iceless tea, I ordered a glass of red wine and never received it. The prawn spaghetti was good as was the risotto. I had the lasagna and Stouffers makes better. We were served our food & received no further attention from any of the waiters despite asking for ice and salt and pepper. We asked several times for the check and when we finally received it, we paid part in pesos and put part on the credit card. We told him to put 605 pesos on the card and he came back and had charged us 620. We will never go back here again. There were people at every table when we arrived but by the time we left 45 minutes later the place was relatively empty. People did not seem to be enjoying their dining experience either.
Marietas Snorkel, Whale Watching, kayak and paddle board Boat #1
by lettergram on 2019/02/16 03:49
We went out in Boat #1 with Pablo. It was SO much fun! Booked this as an excursion with our cruise. The crew did a phenomenal job. They were professional and courteous, knowledgeable and ENTERTAINING. They filled the travel time with such entertaining dance and music routines. The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll comedy show was AWESOME. The snorkeling, paddle boards and kayak was very well done and organized. We were able to see some interesting fish and we saw several whales and birds along the way. The lunch was very good as well as the drinks from the open bar. I was also impressed with the professional photographer on board that captured our day on film. No pressure to buy but he did such good work, we couldn’t resist buying the flash drive of our day. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat - it was the highlight of our cruise. Be sure to ask for BOAT #1 and Pablo’s crew!
Won’t leave home without this app!
by tw-mich on 2019/03/22 17:55
In today’s highly competitive world, many restaurants and hotels are scrambling to get customers in their doors. This app is one of the most valuable apps for travelers who don’t want to be surprised with poor service, low-quality food, and bad environments. I really like it when I’m researching a restaurant and deciding to go there and being able to make a reservation right through the app. One caution that I recommend is to always look at more than one or two reviews. I normally look at at least 10 low reviews and 10 high reviews before I make a decision and always remember restaurants and hotels are gaming the system by putting in their own reviews of their own establishments. I usually put more weight into a review from someone who has a history of traveling which you can see in their profile.
Constant use
by Emahiserj on 2018/07/28 22:18
This is an update of my review reflected below. We constantly use this when we travel and for restaurants in our home area. We still think this app is very good and easy to use. One of the keys is that we find the latest places are included . However one of my pet peeves is still there. Reviews no matter how old. Are still reflected. A review over 12-15 months old does not seem to be current enough to matter. Things change, people leave, corrections are made . We use this in our travels primarily for restaurants and places to stay. Glad we see the good bad and ugly. However reviews should be purged after 12-15 months to keep out the old ratings. Have seen reviews going back to 2008 which makes no sense due to being relevant This has been my review for couple years. Need to purge old reviews as they have zero meaning as out of date. Today actually saw a review for 2007
Frustrating
by Traveler&Oenophile2019 on 2019/06/11 06:02
I’ve always loved TripAdvisor, but they’ve made so many changes to their app and website. For instance it’s completely unhelpful to search for hotels now, because you’re forced to fill in dates of travel, even if you don’t know yet which dates you’re traveling. If you enter dates many hotels won’t show up, as they have no availability, therefore it makes it impossible to research every hotel in a given city. Their search engine is also very frustrating now. Trying to search for a city is difficult as it auto fills certain areas for you. For instance, if I want to research Bologna Italy, I will use the search bar for “Bologna”, then it auto fills the location as “near me,” or maybe one of my last city searches. So I’ll get a restaurant or hotel with the word “Bologna” in it, but near my house. Just weird and so annoying. I wish there was a better website, but unfortunately we’re stuck with this one as it continues to get worse and worse. :(
Grand Luxxe at Vidanta
by yogabodil on 2019/04/06 23:44
Once again we returned after 2 weeks of vacationing at our favorite resort Grand Luxxe at Vidanta in Puerto Vallarta. It was the ultimate vacation as it always is, never disappoints. But this year our concierge on the 8th floor of building one was a lovely young lady named Anika from Germany. She anticipated our every need and wish and always with a smile. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and our anniversary, and on each occasion some special culinary treats and balloons arrived making us feel very special. Beautiful detail. Our day maid Alejandra was equally amazing, always with a smile as she worked. Norma our evening girl just as lovely. Must also mention Jorge at the grand Luxxe taxi arrival area, who offered to take us in a private cart as the number 7 cart was full every time it passed. But I have to say, no matter who you are in contact with are special, which is why we have returned to Vidanta during these last 15 years as nothing else can really compare to the service, the beauty of the resort and the service. When they added the “plaza” . I was overwhelmed with happiness, cheese shop, French bakery, wine shop, delicatessen, and a little grocery store. Plus all the wonderful restaurants, a new one “limon y Sal” yum yum. So, thanks to the staff at Vidanta for making our vacation so memorable. Bodil and Larry Friedman 💃💃
Horrible! Don’t Use!!
by Dissatisfied Customer z on 2018/12/09 14:14
First, there are problems logging into the app. You have to prove you’re not a robot over and over again. Also, once you are logged in you don’t know it because there’s not any confirmation or landing page. Instead, after a successful login you are taken back to the login page which causes you to think that you were unsuccessful. What a mess!! I booked three tours for one day. Without asking or even giving a reason, TripAdvisor took it upon themselves to cancel one of my tours and change the time of the second tour. When I arrived at checkin to get my ticket I was informed that the tour was in Hebrew, which I do NOT speak. Because this was only an hour before the app advised that I would not be refunded. When I tried to look for a customer service phone number, I found that none were listed. All I could do was email a complaint which in turn I received an email back stating that my problem would be looked into within 3 to 5 DAYS!!! What a waste!!! I can only hope that at this evening’s planned event I will not have any problem getting my ticket!!
Friendliest staff, cleanest and coziest rooms, reasonably priced!
by Unhappy Scrabble addict on 2018/08/20 03:53
This is a review for the best Western Inn at Facetock in Bandon, Oregon. We stayed there in a recent vacation and had been there a year earlier too. We specifically came back to this hotel due to the friendliness of the staff, the coziness and cleanliness of the room, and the reasonable price. The hotel is across the street from the beach so we’d wake up every day to fresh air and the sound of the waves. Every day breakfasts , included in the price, were always delicious and carefully prepared with many options. The check-in-staff, the cooks, the hostesses, room service attendees, were all friendly, professional and made us feel at home. Kudos go to Larry, the manager there, Eileen, and the rest of the welcome staff, who gave us great suggestions as to places to visit in Bandon. We highly recommend staying at this lovely hotel if you’re in the Bandon area.
Every time I travel, and sometimes at home.
by Cavalry God on 2018/06/17 19:11
I love this app, I use it wherever I go to find places to eat and things to do. I return the favor by posting reviews everywhere I go... EXCEPT when at home. (I live in Vegas, and honestly, we want the tourists to mostly stay in the tourist areas. If you come to town to visit relatives, they may take you off the strip for a good meal, but the town is laid out for you to easily get back and forth in the tourist areas, and to be able to do ANYTHING you want while there, and for the locals to be able to avoid tourists by avoiding the tourist areas). I have traveled the world, this app has helped me out on four continents, didn’t get out and about on the fifth (work stopover), haven’t been to Australia or Antarctica yet.... and honestly, I don’t think this app will help much when I do get to Antarctica..... but it helps EVERYWHERE else.....
JW Marriott, Bangkok Thailand,
by Vic and Bev on 2017/11/13 02:13
My wife and I had the most wonderful 10 days staying at this Marriott! From the moment our cab dropped us off from the airport the "staff" worked as a team to make certain all of of our needs and wishes were met always with a smile and ultimate courtesy. I would describe everyone on the "team" as ALWAYS kind and from the heart. Our times with the Concierge, Front Desk and Executive Lounge always exceeded our expectations. We would like to acknowledge everyone by name as each one was very special to us. The Manager of the team is Patt. She leads by example always from her "heart" and everyone on her team, without exception, follows her example! They were all "born" that way! It is natural and easy for them. The "team" members by name are: Fong, Honey, Lukpla, Peach, Day, Touch, Mena, Genova, Por, and Noon. If you want at great total experience Stay at the JW Marriott, Bangkok!
My go-to advisor
by koa12345 on 2019/05/10 13:59
Trip advisor is my source and I find it very rarely wrong. What you see is not the opinion of a single critic but the input of masses which is why it is general pretty accurate information. You can even write your own reviews but be very careful about writing a negative review. I did that once, found I was in error, tried to retract the review. There is a process. It's fairly hidden and after I did find it, it did not work. I felt terrible because the restaurant owner had worked in good faith with me, and I had promised him I would retract the review. (What had happened was my own error, not his.) when that failed, I decided if I could not retract it, the next best thing would be to counter balance it with a glowing review. It would not let me enter another review for a month. If it were not for this glitch in the Trip Advisor software, I would give them a full and solid 5.
Omg, this app makes me so mad
by Rockfish420311 on 2018/01/13 17:27
I get about a kabillion emails from trip advisor begging me to write a review, so I try. I go to the TripAdvisor app, try to add a photo with my review but only about half of my photos are available to choose from and NEVER the photo I’m looking for. So I go to the “help section” of trip advisor and it says “you can’t upload pics from the app you have to do that from the full site”. Which is bs because I COULD upload a pic from the app just NOT the pic I wanted. So, I went to the full site via safari, which is a bigger headache. The main page is insistently trying to get me to search for a hotel or restaurant near Palm Springs, CA (which is about 3000 miles away from me and not a place I’m even thinking about visiting.) Then, when I TRY to write a review via safari it tries to push me to the app. I’m literally 43 minutes into trying to write a review of a great restaurant I visited last night and I’m still not done. Why do you make your site so difficult to use? Do you want to be obsolete? Is that your goal? You’re well on your way.

My son recommended this app to me, and I love it! It is so easy to check out attractions and tourist destinations in cities I visit. It is wonderful to be able to research flights, hotels, and attractions in one place. I wish I had gotten it a long time ago! I highly recommend it!!
Stop the update!
by Ljgordon on 2019/07/18 13:42
Update—why ask me if I like this new app? I have said I hate it. I don’t want to see other people’s pictures unless I choose to. I use Trip Advisor for everything. I HATE the new format. The front page used to show me my latest searches. Now it’s other people’s pictures and places I would never go. Let me personalize it. The first page is now useless.
Excellent resource for travelers
by World Traveler 1969 on 2019/07/18 13:41
I have been using and writing reviews on this site for the past three years. Actually I have enjoyed writing on all of the places that I have visited. It is a great way for me to keep track of all my favorite places and to share them with others who also are passionate about travel. Dr. Erick J. Mann PhD Professor of History and Fulbright Scholar

Usually excellent, but not always
by Lincster45 on 2019/07/18 07:22
I have used TripAdvisor for several years, and have been generally happy with it. Recently there have been several disappointments. I had a one day stop over in Tam Ky, Vietnam, and when looking for restaurants and activities discovered TripAdvisor has a hard time distinguishing Tam Ky from Hoi An, which is about 35km to the north. Finally found what I was looking for, but was disappointed in this flaw. In Dong Hoi there are places that have been long closed, and reported, like 23CM, that no longer exist. This was my go to application, but of late has been a bit disappointing. Still, with a little patience you can glean a lot of good information.

Beware
by SFhank on 2019/07/17 21:43
This site uses a fraudulent booking agency called Cancelon who will take your money without providing the booking you thought you had. They took my money and have not provided a booking and will not respond to any of my emails. I refuse to use this site again do to their association with this vendor. Beware. Do not book through this site!
Reliable
by gkwsr on 2019/07/17 19:05
The ratings are accurate and information, I wander around the great American West a lot either on a Harley or dragging a travel trailer and use TA regularly. Much better than Yelp ......
Too much emphasis on selling tours
by 4Beverley on 2019/07/17 18:08
I used to love TripAdvisor and it was my go to site before booking any trip or hotel. But in the past year the website has turned to sales of ads and pushing tours and paid services rather than focusing on reviews from readers. I’m wondering if this site has not been purchased by a tour company.
Trip Advisor My Go To
by renedrewsmom on 2019/07/17 16:47
I use Trip Advisor to check on reviews of restaurants, resorts and over all things to do in places we vacation. I also look up restaurants in our city to check on reviews and post. Trip Advisor offers a lot of information and hasn’t steered me wrong yet. Great App!!!
Great way to know what and where
by Ghala2 on 2019/07/17 16:26
Helps me a lot with my travel to plan where to go, what to do and where to eat and stay.
Trip Advisor App
by RSK848 on 2019/07/17 15:24
I love the Trip Advisor App. It is easy to use and has a wealth of information. You can find information on hotels all over the world, destinations for travel and activities once you get there amongst so much more. There are recent reviews on the modes of transportation, restaurants and attractions. Therefore, you will read useful information and opinions. Just go to the App Store and download the app. Who knows? You may even become a reviewer of the places you've been, the sights you saw, the meals you ate at the many restaurants, or you can introduce new places or tours not listed, and Trip Advisor will research and verify there is such a place, notify you, and then you can write a review. How cool is that?! You can introduce not only the readers on the site to the new place but also you have introduced Trip Advisor to it! Use the app conveniently to find your travel needs easily or to just find a nice restaurant for lunch or dinner, then read reviews on it. Enjoy!
RCI Vacation Village in in the Berkshires in Hancock,Ma
by gghhgghhgghhgghh on 2019/07/17 15:13
Billed as a Gold star resort was a huge disappointment. We had a terrible experience at check in which spoiled our week. i am an Inn Season’s member,trading into RCI for the week.I ,in my name,on my credit card,had made the reservation etc.When i arrived,the reservation was in my x-wife’s name.Carol rather than Virginia.We were always co-owners so that should never have been a problem.I had my membership card.I had bought Carol out in the divorce.I owned the points outright. It wasn’t just that Judy,the woman at check in wasn’t going to let me check in,she was dismissive and very rude.i can’t remember ever being treated so nasty.i was shocked. It took over 15 minutes before Judy and her equally dismissive supervisor allowed me to check in. I then bravely told then i had been told to request a 2 bed room at check in.Immediately,without opening the computer,i was told the resort was full,there was a music festival that week-end and besides i wouldn’t want to spend $25/ night.i said i was happy to pay.They insisted no availability. The resort was nowhere near full.The music festival was the following week-end.The 2 bed room beside us was empty! We had no towel or linen exchange though we called for it and we were entitled to it once a week. There is no cleaning or trash emptying etc unless you pay for it. Our room was quite dingy. i will say that maintenance was helpful .Our shower/tub was jammed and needed a new faucet .They stayed til they replaced it. I would never,ever stay here again and i would have left if i had any options or i thought for one minute that they would refund my points. If i had not stayed at other RCI resorts,i would hesitate to do so again.But i have and this is not the usual. I will certainly look carefully at reviews before i book a place again. It didn’t occur to me at the time but i was so puzzled by the rude and dismissive treatment by Judy at check-in,that i tried to figure out what could possibly have triggered it.I was even angrier when it occurred to me that it might have been because i was a lesbian!
Love trip advisor
by Hottody on 2019/07/17 14:13
Trip advisor is an amazing app that tells you the best things to do from real people who have really done them
Super helpful
by ribbler95 on 2019/07/17 14:13
I really like this one. It has helped me out of more than one travel jam. Accurate and up to date info.
Solid App
by Open Thinking Mind on 2019/07/17 12:53
I never had an issue with this application. It is built in a very user friendly way. Could be improved in the way of map searching but overall it is a great app.
Useful mobile app for travel info I needed
by Sunnydayalways on 2019/07/17 12:08
A great useful mobile app to explore place of attraction and information needed for my travel plans. Also easy for submitting reviews and photos, a platform for nice sharing of the places being traveled. Great app!
Very informative and very simple to leave a review.
by clearwaterdreamer on 2019/07/17 11:24
This app makes it very easy to leave reviews on places you visited. I use it quite regularly before booking rooms for hotels or heading to restaurants.
Used to be a good app
by Oweky on 2019/07/17 10:59
App was so much better before it started selling packages. Now u have to weed through so much crap before you can find the actual real reviews and pictures instead of the ones that paid to be on there.
Swiss International Air
by Kool1944 on 2019/07/17 10:12
I would never fly Swiss Air again. The food was inferior, aircraft extremely crowded; ground staff denied my bag for overhead bin while my husband’s identical bag was permitted in the overhead bin with room to spare. This is not consistent service and causes negative opinion about Swiss Air.
Fantastic App
by Moore to be heard on 2019/07/17 05:50
Love this app for making plans when traveling. Discount tickets on attractions and lower prices on lodging.
Great info
by Mamagrigs on 2019/07/17 04:42
I refer to Trip Advisor for almost everything when we are traveling and so far, we have always been fortunate in following the reviews.
Use all the time
by david&cindy on 2019/07/17 04:15
Trip advisor has been my companion on 5 continents for a decade. It is a fabulous guide for the traveler, both structured and unstructured travel.
Love the app
by T_taisia on 2019/07/17 02:58
Very concerning to use. Can operate both, personal page and business
Really helpful!
by Raquette-Bound on 2019/07/17 02:30
Am fairly new to TripAdvisor, but already I’ve gained great travel tips for a variety of locations. Am grateful to the folks who post detailed reviews.
Convenient
by Ydmstr on 2019/07/17 01:25
Provides who, what, when, where and how to get there all in one place, along with a review.
Why is it so hard to research hotels by rating!?!
by sb3036 on 2019/07/17 01:04
I usually use the website. This app is awful. Will delete.
Great app
by psycgrl7 on 2019/07/17 00:41
Love the wide variety of options in all areas which help me make the best decisions for my trips. Very helpful.
Made vacation great!!
by B1crz4mc on 2019/07/17 00:12
We used Trip Advisor to find everything from a pet friendly hotel to zip lining to caves. It was great for finds places in a new place!!
I love and depend on this app
by Bevalonia on 2019/07/17 00:09
Best app I my opinion, especially for people who travel and need honest advice and reviews. I love doing reviews to help others and I appreciate reviews others have written.
Trip Advisor is the best!
by lulopske on 2019/07/16 23:51
We never leave home on a trip w/o constantly checking Trip Advisor concerning great restaurants in the area we are traveling thru. We find it to be invaluable!! We leave tomorrow on a 16 day trip & will wear it out. Love it....
Invaluable Resource
by Wilma929 on 2019/07/16 23:46
I use Trip Advisor every time I travel. There is so much information available to plan for a trip nearly anywhere.
Best Travel App, by far!
by CaptChiefColCam on 2019/07/16 23:46
TripAdvisor is a wonderful sight to easily find out the best restaurants hotels and places to go and things to do. I’ve used it in the USA and all around the world and The reviews and the ratings are very good, not perfect but very good. Any restaurant in the top 10 is usually very good place to go. But some down lower are also good. I think the algorithm depends on how many reviews. So try!
Love the app!
by josiemae51 on 2019/07/16 23:12
I rely on this app for all my travel information!!

Air Maui Helicopter tour
by Nana Fife on 2019/07/16 19:20
January 2019 went on an Air Maui helicopter tour with Shaylan. Most gorgeous morning on both Maui and Molokai. Was a bit concerned about motion sickness but Shaylan was a great pilot. It was AMAZING! Saw beautiful green mountains, cliffs, bright blue ocean, elephant rock, mountain goats on the top of one of the mountains, whales in the ocean, and lots of water falls — even a 13 tier waterfall. It was gorgeous and amazing. Thanks Shaylan for a great tour. Only draw back was on the video. The pictures were great but the narration was not really clear. But the pictures are very memorable.

I use this a lot to read the reviews and comments he. Arriving in a new place. Really helps one by learning the local area.
The best travel app. Everyone knows this. AirBnB close second.
by The dreamt benign on 2019/07/16 18:50
Trip advisor gives you everything you need to know, but you already knew that.
Overly commercialized
by iPhone Abroad on 2019/07/16 18:22
This app used to be #1, but as they have tried to sell tours more and more, the ability to use them for info as gone way down.
Great app for traveling!
by Genepow on 2019/07/16 16:49
This is my go-to app for restaurants, especially when I'm traveling. I haven't used the app for other purposes so I can't evaluate its usefulness there. I try to review restaurants after dining there. Sometimes I wait until several meals so I can more accurately rate the experience. That's the one fault I find with the app - you cannot modify a review once published. Other than that one flaw, this is a great app.
Does the job
by Serie2323 on 2019/07/16 16:48
Wish it was more user friendly especially in the forum.

So helpful!
by Chino Cathy on 2019/07/16 15:20
Used it every day on our last trip to Carlsbad Caverns. Saved us finding a hotel each night.
Login broke
by legapur9 on 2019/07/16 14:56
I can’t create an account, or use Facebook or Google for login... they all give errors. And the app heavily restricts functionality of your not logged in... how did this pass by QA?!?!
Great app
by Limeyosu2000 on 2019/07/16 14:19
Only gripe is once you review, there is no way to go back and edit.
Stellar resource!
by vb95959 on 2019/07/16 13:56
Have found excellent information and options using Trip A. Drilling down into the reviews and comments is critical. That said, important to contribute input! Keep on keepin on💖

Very helpful
by Watching us ha ha on 2019/07/16 11:22
Trip advisor is extremely helpful. I check this app first before booking hotels restaurants and things to do. The one time I didn’t check hotel reviews, I booked hotel by hotel chain recognition only. Wow so disappointed. Went on trip advisor after and saw all the bad reviews. Lesson learned. Check trip advisor before booking!
We love the app
by pjs 623 on 2019/07/16 11:10
We are retired and get to travel frequently so we enjoy TripAdvisor to help us find restaurants,motels and things to see and do.I love being a senior advisor and getting to share with others what we discover!!!! I am sure that like us you agree with some opinions and disagree with others,that’s natural as we come from many different backgrounds but for me it is very helpful. Enjoy your travels and Gods speed.
What happened to Tripadvisor?
by HX911 on 2019/07/16 10:19
I used TA a lot and really found it useful - learned to take reviews with a grain of salt, but there was so much information available.. now i search and cant find half the restaurants and bars i can clearly see - somehow TA has lost (to me) its usefulness. Sad
Love this site
by jpsmithct on 2019/07/16 10:12

Fast, Easy and Rewarding
by Sodium-Chloride on 2019/07/16 09:45
In minutes, you can see all your hotel and sight seeing options. If you see what you like, booking is easy and worry free. In addition to great prices, there are cash back rewards from affiliates and partners. It makes vacation planning a pleasure.
The Travel Essential
by dspotter on 2019/07/16 07:46
Whether I’m in town or out, TripAdvisor ratings and reviews through the app make decisions on where to go and what to try out easy. App is useful and prefer using it over their website.

Much better odds of finding what will please with this app. Alderman less likelihood of being disappointed.
Certainly Room for Improvement
by Rockydogz on 2019/07/16 01:13
As a senior executive who has traveled worldwide, I’m amazed at the inconsistency of the reviews and struggle with how high some establishments are rated that offer mediocre product and service. Don’t really have a recommendation on how to improve the quality and consistency of this service. How can 9 people rate a restaurant 5 stars and one person gives it a horrible review. Very perplexing.
Deletes reviews
by Jessicake2 on 2019/07/16 00:17
I’ve written several reviews and had them deleted. I’ve tried changing the format, style, what the review says but it’s always deleted. I’ve reached out to trip advisor support to find out why. No response or help
Top Notch!

by Bryce & Marsha F on 2019/07/15 21:42
We use this app every where we go. I not only research and review but I also enter my own reviews. I would be lost on trips without it. We just moved to a new city and it is very helpful there too.
Revised: Super slow
by Tom78587 on 2019/07/15 21:39
7/15: we're back to what we'd expect from this app. Looking good. Old: This new version has a different layout, but the functionality is abhorrent. There's a 1 second delay between when you tap, and when the app decides to respond. If this gets resolved, I will change my rating.
Great place for some quick dives.
by nashabn@outlook on 2019/07/15 21:31
Gaspar took us out and was very patient and chill. Saw a few whitetips a turtle and a long tail ray. Everything is provided for you as far as gear which is nice that it’s included in the price. Definitely will dive with this company again.
Go to First
by TessD68 on 2019/07/15 20:54
We use Trip Advisor to help make itineraries for current trips as well as to identify spots we might like to visit in the future. Most reviews are spot on. Certainly seeing a variety of opinions is helpful. We often find an out of the way attraction or restaurant that we would not have known about without Trip Advisor.

by Downtownab on 2019/07/15 19:40
This used to be a valuable site. But they’ve sold out and now don’t support the tourist. But the hotels and sites that pay the most to advertise. Hate them now.
Good solid App
by Andy Darmody on 2019/07/15 19:07

Love the TripAdvisor app !
by gigi4.4 on 2019/07/15 19:01
I love reading the reviews before we go somewhere so we can decide where we want to go before we get their like the best place’s to get a lobster roll while in Boston or the best place to get cannolis like mike’s pastry in Boston !
Consistency of cuisine
by """nik on 2019/07/15 18:41
I like using the App. It’s a good place to validate dining choices . Search is quick and very user friendly
Great When Taveling
by Brain Waker on 2019/07/15 17:38
My husband and I use Trip Advisor when we travel to find good places to eat and fun things to do in the local region. I always feel I can count on other travelers to give an honest evaluation.
Very helpful app

I always look at this app and the reviews when picking restaurants out of town. They are usually spot on reviews and some come with pictures
Fun way to see what people think
by Kelise 427 on 2019/07/15 11:26
I have used trip advisor to look up places of interest and have added my own reviews....the app is friendly and helpful!
Best way to travel.
by Shame, Shame,Shame. on 2019/07/15 10:12
I love traveling the world and I use TripAdvisor wherever I am, it’s a great way of finding good restaurants etc. when you are not familiar with the area. You just have to read a few reviews to get a really good feel for the type of food and service you’ll get.
Don’t travel without checking
by Man of Pan on 2019/07/15 07:05
I never travel without checking on Trip Advisor. I find a lot of the reviews to be helpful. (Some of the negative reviews are helpful, too). I read the negative reviews and decide if the review is accurate or the reviewer is just being a be-yatch.
Such a great App!
by ProblematiqueProblem on 2019/07/15 05:41
So easy to use and informative! Love how you can book tours and gets tickets for events easily! This is my go-to app when booking trips, before and during! Keep it up TA! Would love to work for the company in fact! lol

I love the Trip Advisor app!
by HoneyBunchesOfOats1 on 2019/07/15 02:49
I use this app quite often. It’s so nice to be able to read reviews from normal people like me because it helps me make an informed decision of where to eat and what places to see. I don’t know what I would do without it when I leave town or go on vacation. Before I go on vacations, I plan ahead of time by reading the reviews on my trip advisor app. It’s easy to use and I love the “near me” option. I like that I’m able to provide others with feedback as well. This app is one of my favorites!
Trip advisor never lets me down.
by Sherise R on 2019/07/15 02:47
I use a variety of travel apps and I always wind up using trip advisor to get thee most information and best deals and packages.
Great full breakfast included!!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Quality Inn in Durango. We were so pleased with the personal attention we received by all staff. Nycole was the nice lady that prepared our fried eggs and she got them just like we requested. Thanks for the good service.
Great for Traveling!
by LB7123 on 2019/03/12 13:00
This app is so helpful in planning trips to various cities! I can see what hotels are available in what area of town and the pricing for each. The mapping program pops up which makes this process very quick. I can touch various hotels and see exact reviews which allows me to see if their stars are based on recent good reviews or bad reviews. This has allowed me to visit new cities and still get a good nights sleep! Woohoo! The restaurant section allows me to pick via map to a specific part of town or via type of food I’m hungry for at the moment. It also lists it via cheap eats or fine dining. This is very helpful! The things to do has been an awesome part of this app and is my personal favorite part. I can look at a specific city and find museums, art galleries, gardens, nature trails, etc. However, that’s not all this app does! I can also use it via the map to find unusual things to do along my drive. Yes, rural towns have hidden gems in them! And some of those drives in the middle of nowhere have hidden scenic lookouts or historic museums that I would have missed if it were not for this app. I’m so thankful for it and literally use it all the time! I highly recommend it!
Love it for business and personal trips!
by NuclearWynter on 2019/02/24 19:29
I travel quite a bit for business and even more for pleasure and this app is perfect for both. On business trips, I can put in the city I’m visiting and when I’m going and it gives me restaurants options and the most popular things to do. I can read reviews from other helpful travelers that give me thing to looks out for and best times to go places. When I travel for pleasure, I start with Trip Advisor. I get a destination in mind and save hotels/vacation homes, activities and transportation info to the trip and have it all planned out before I book. I also use the app for planning with others. I planned a girls trip to Jamaica with my friends and was able to send them the details to review before we booked. I was able to book a lake house in NC for a Thanksgiving dinner my family is planning this year. I think the next step for the app is allowing splitting of payments for different things or allowing multiple payers. Also being able to joint plan a trip would be nice. Overall though I have no complaints about the app and love using it. I love leaving reviews for places I’ve been an helping other fellow travelers.
See Amsterdams Hidden Gems by Bike (Stephan)
by Viv mom on 2019/07/10 14:32
Before the tour even started I fell in love with Stephan. I wanted to book his tour but the times he had available conflicted with other tours we had arranged. No problem!! He opened another date for us that worked, and let us know his colleague Martin would be leading the group. Very clear directions on where to meet, what to bring and what to expect. We had a really fun time touring a part of Amsterdam with Martin. A world class cyclist (and father of a young child), Martin led the eight of us around, being very attentive to our safety while also explaining the history of whatever we were passing by at the time. Even though we were encouraged to bring a water bottle and sunscreen, we were very pleasantly surprised when Martin opened his backpack on the ferry (on an unseasonably hot day) and started handing out snacks as well as water bottles and sunscreen. It wasn't a very big backpack but the water bottles coming out seemed endless! It turned into an incredibly fun afternoon. By giving us tips about riding safely in Amsterdam, we felt comfortable renting our own bikes a few days later. And we survived!!
Love this app but use improvements
by Teddy bear babe on 2018/08/18 17:29
I use this app almost every time we go to a new city to find what food is good and where to eat. That being said there are some improvements I would like to see. 1. For vegetarians and vegans the app can be a little difficult to navigate. One change I would like to see is in phrasing and searching filters. There is a difference between vegetarian/ vegan restaraunts and a restaurant having vegan/vegetarian options. The app currently does not show the difference which can be vexing. 2. Another change I would like to see is in the search. Often times i go on here to find food between point a and point b but currently there is not a way to search along that route or slightly off from it. Yes you can go through each address and see but for tourists this can be difficult and additional time to your task. It’s a good time to mention that even if these changes don’t occur I will keep using the app but it would be nice to see a change to help support those of us with different diets. And not just non-meat eaters but, gluten free eaters, paleo people or even those that have a lot of allergies to food such as nuts, milk, eggs and more.
This is the best place to find ratings and details about hotels, restaurants, etc.
by Bob WW on 2019/02/12 17:30
I evaluate most of the hotels, restaurants, and local sights on TripAdvisor. I only rarely have to give bad ratings since I have checked in advance on TripAdvisor. By reading many reviews you can quickly get a good idea of each rated place. Note that some reviewers are always negative - either they are never satisfied or they are so grumpy that they have brought out the worst in everyone they meet. When hundreds of visitors have given a place “excellent” or “very good” ratings, usually the few bad ratings are due to such trolls. I usually do read several negative ratings - bad days do occur and there are flaws in everything and it can help you to notice those flaws - but if most people liked it, I will probably like it too. I have used “Yelp” at times for restaurant reviews (sometimes searching sends me to Yelp). It is ok, but I have not usually found it more convenient. I am less familiar with it - and I have never posted a rating there.
I found many people to be rude for no reason
by TiNyJALEPENO on 2019/03/08 15:56
I suggest looking elsewhere and honestly reddit is much more helpful. I posted a couple things, but they were simple questions about atms. People then told me I should research and soon I would be asking about shootings where I am staying? I don’t get how I can be so stupid for simply asking about the atms and which ones to use because people’s cards were being read and used in Indonesia. I then went on to read multiple reviews and I was really taken back by how many unnecessarily rude people are on there. Some people on there do ask naive questions, but the point of the app is to help people. Anytime I told someone they were being rude my comment was deleted by the staff. I’m not sure why because I never cursed I just told the people they were being unnecessarily rude and pretentious. But maybe pretentious was taken as not following their guidelines? Because technically I called them a name? Not sure. Anyways besides people being not very helpful I also found reviews to be lacking. There are so many spots I went to in Puerto Escondido that were amazing and not mentioned. So I would suggest speaking to locals wherever you go. Trip advisor may be helpful to some, but honestly I think reddit is much better. I thought Yelp was bad, but this app and it’s staff are in no way helpful.
Good App
by zionawe on 2019/03/02 16:18
I use this app a lot when traveling and even more so in the planning phase. Lot of great information from reviews for places we never have seen but might be considering. TripAdvisor has made traveling much easier, especially when in need of a hotel after being on the road all day sightseeing. We rarely spend more than one night in a location so we can cover a lot more ground and this app has allowed us to be extremely flexible. The only thing I really don't care for on the app is that I have to enter a city name to find things to do in a particular area if the park or activity is not common knowledge. For instance, if we're thinking of visiting Newberry National Volcanic Monument, in Oregon, I can't just type the monument's name because it'll try to take me to a town called Newberry in one of five different states, none of which are in Oregon. So, in order for the app to bring up the monument, I have to type "Bend, Oregon." I should just be able to type in the name of the park since it's already in TripAdvisor's system. Maybe it's a small thing , but it really annoys me. Other than that it's a great app.
Great App But Could Use Improvements
by Island Sparkles on 2018/04/29 12:03
I use TripAdvisor quite often to review my experiences at hotels, restaurants and attraction areas as well as read the reviews of others when deciding on areas and places to visit. It would be great if TripAdvisor would add cruise lines to their portfolio of things that can be reviewed as I am getting ready to take a cruise and would love to share my experience when I return. I have had some difficulties when trying to write reviews for locations or places that are not yet listed in the app. This has been very frustrating as you do not realize that your review will not get published until after you go through all that effort to write the review and include pictures etc. Additionally, I would like to see some incentives or benefits for members that take the time to write all of these reviews to inform the general public of their experiences. I have written 105 reviews, and I have not yet received any type of incentives i.e. discounts to restaurants, hotels, attractions etc. Granted, I do not write these reviews for any type of reward. I write them because it benefits me when I read others reviews when trying to decide on things to do and places to go; however, I just think it would be nice for TripAdvisor to give some sort of gesture to show that they appreciate what we as reviewers do for them. Overall, I do enjoy using this app and will continue to use the app as needed because the benefits outweigh their need for improvements.
Love the app, however...

I have used the Trip Advisor app for years and found it to be very helpful. However, in this era of stored data abuses, I find it annoying that I can not erase my recent search history. Some will argue why this is an issue so I will share an issue that a co-worker had with the Trip Advisor app. My co-worker was planning on surprising his wife with a romantic mid-week trip at an oceanfront resort 40 miles from his home. He used Trip Advisor to find the best accommodations available. He has the Trip Advisor app on both his iPhone and iPad. After determining that this type of trip wasn’t in his budget, he decided to wait and save a little bit of money each week. Well, sometime later, his wife was using the iPad and Trip Advisor to research a restaurant in the area for a family dinner. While she was in the app, she noticed his history. She was also noticing that he was taking money from their savings account (money he was saving for their romantic weekend.) Anyhow, my co-workers wife’s man hating sister had her convinced that he was having an affair. No need to keep going on this story as I am sure you all get it. Once Trip Advisor allows search history to be deleted, I will amend my 2 star rating.
This is “legal” scam now!?
by Getinktattoo on 2019/06/29 17:09
I just changed phone and was trying to open TripAdvisor in my new one and just realize this craziness.... be aware... it doesn’t sound correct or even legal (but I guess that if the ask persuasion and we, the users, granted, then is on us.... one of the options to signing into TripAdvisor is using my google email/account... TripAdvisor request me roc ALLOW them to be able “to see and download all my google accounts emails addresses”!!!!! What is that!!! How is that to use an app about things to do or where to eat in any given area I need to pay that service with my privacy and the Privacy of the people that emails me!!!!!? Be aware! We all are used to the “scroll down and agree” and select box and agree to be able to use most accounts and apps now day... must of the times are about fair use of apps and legal reasons..some other times is about allowing the apps to use our location and maybe cameras and being able to storage photos in our devices.... so we go ahead and click allow or agree just because we are so used to trust as no other way to get around or as part of the process... but what TripAdvisor is doing asking permission to see and download our private info... doesn’t sound right!! At all!!!
Great app but tired of some of the questions
by Hearing in LA! on 2019/03/06 22:45
I like the app and have used it for both evaluating and reviewing restaurants, hotels, and things to do all over the world. It is fairly easy to use but have found 1 issue that was only cleared up after I sent a message to Trip Advisor. When adding a new location of any type, a website or social media listing is shown being “optional.” I have found that if the new location does not have a website or not listed on social media, TA will reject the listing without explanation. This was very frustrating after going through all the detail of listing 2 new restaurants and having them rejected without explanation. There should be a note requiring website or social media address before going through details of a new listing. A point that not only perturbs but concerns me greatly is I am totally offended by constantly being asked if a restaurant offers halal food. It is very discriminatory to single this out. I do not nor will I ever eat this food so stop asking me this offense question!!!!
Really helps RVers, more & more as people utilize
by frequent TA user on 2018/02/19 02:30
In travel, this app is priceless! Particularly traveling to a new destination, helps tremendously with restaurant info. and directions! Ditto for events, attractions. Much better than Around Me, which we hardly use anymore. Even at home, we use it when the inevitable question “where should we go eat?” arises. Especially when wanting something other than our usual go-tos. Breakfast lunch or dinner, or even Happy Hr. it sure helps. Can really tell a difference in the App since we retired 3 years ago and began more extended RV trips - more RV parks and public campgrounds being listed and reviewed, all the time. Pictures help soo much as well as specific site info., amenities, when trying to find a place to camp. And Especially when looking for a place to eat, sightsee or shop for fresh seafood/meats in a new place, we find TA invaluable. The more people use and review, the better it gets. And the app updates have made it better. Keep up the good work, TA!
Trip Advisor App
by RSK848 on 2019/07/17 15:24
I love the Trip Advisor App. It is easy to use and has a wealth of information. You can find information on hotels all over the world, destinations for travel and activities once you get there amongst so much more. There are recent reviews on the modes of transportation, restaurants and attractions. Therefore, you will read useful information and opinions. Just go to the App Store and download the app. Who knows? You may even become a reviewer of the places you've been, the sights you saw, the meals you ate at the many restaurants, or you can introduce new places or tours not listed, and Trip Advisor will research and verify there is such a place, notify you, and then you can write a review. How cool is that?! You can introduce not only the readers on the site to the new place but also you have introduced Trip Advisor to it! Use the app conveniently to find your travel needs easily or to just find a nice restaurant for lunch or dinner, then read reviews on it. Enjoy!
Love The App Except . . .
by rekampam on 2019/03/04 16:06
One of the best Travel Apps available, with access to helpful reviews to help make better destination decisions. And because reasonable reviews help us make travel decisions, we also like to post solid reviews that might assist others. The one real difficulty with the Trip Advisor App is posting photos to reviews, even one’s own reviews. It seems that even when following Trip Advisor’s own HOW-TO directions, it is difficult to successfully add photos. Either the app wants access to all (thousands) of the photos on our devices, or using the “Profile/Intro/Upload The Photo/Add a Location Tag” method allows the app to see only the few photos in the “Camera Roll” and “My Photo Stream” folders, but will not allow access any of the specific “Albums” on our phone or tablet where individual trip photos are stored. If it wasn’t for the photo posting obstacle, the app would get 5 stars. It would be great if a simpler and more straightforward method was available for adding photos. Thanks very much.
Unfortunately, not the best app
by jimmm_nyc on 2019/02/19 04:12
The addresses and maps are often incorrect on TripAdvisor. Many times I’ve made location edits with TripAdvisor and a few times TripAdvisor has accepted & changed the map locations to the correct spot on the map. However, most often TripAdvisor does not edit the map information and the location continues to be completely incorrect. Therefore, I would not depend on TripAdvisor for the correct address or map location. Instagram will do this for you though, with lots of fantastic and beautiful photos on Instagram. There’s plenty of different apps and online resources for you to double check locations of hotel, restaurant, tours, etc because TripAdvisor is not trustworthy on giving the correct location. It’s almost like going to the doctor and getting a second opinion. Always double check the facts! TripAdvisor, I guess, is in its infancy stages and hopefully it will get better. Meanwhile, Instagram exceeds all the other apps for a lot of useful “sharing” information to help you make your decision of where to stay & eat.... & places to visit.
Golden Parnassus! Adults Paradise in Cancun
by cousin Reids dad on 2019/07/03 12:30
Just returned from a week with my two young adult children. It’s our third time there. Many of the guests are return visitors to the resort. I’ve met many guests that have been there ten times or more. The staff are second to none! The hardest working and most personable people in the industry. The food is good and plentiful and the drinks delicious and they keep them coming, One reason that many people return is because of the great service and personality of a bartender named Fonsi. Fonsi is a very hard working and genuine man. He can hold an interesting conversation with anyone. He’s smart , funny and just a magician at making drinks. He remembers your drink and never lets you run dry. If it’s advice that you need as far as where to go and what to do in Cancun, he’s ur guy. We really missed the body shots this year though, they were fun but for some reason not allowed anymore ??? Check it out! You will want to take half of the staff home with you!
Viking Cruise Venice to Athens
by kamabesu on 2019/04/13 15:57
What a remarkable 10 days. It was our first Viking Cruise and it was wonderful. The team that puts together the off ship tours is truly 5 star. The advertising on PBS is spot on. You really do have magical moments with the people of the country you are visiting. It is special and intimate. We had an operatic performance in a villa in Venice. The owner welcomed us to his family home of 700 years and served Prosecco from his vineyards. The performance of famous arias and duets was worthy of The Met. Bravo Don’t miss a day of touring they were all equally spectacular. Food off the ship is much better than on. The Italian Resturant was good. The Chefs table,poor. How many ways can you steam cod? How many courses can you embellish with “espoma “? I guess the answer is unlimited. Our Jr Suite was very spacious and the perk we especially used was free laundry and dry cleaning. The free mini bar was so so as it had lower quality liquor offerings. The crew was fabulous. Very kind and attentive. We look forward to our next Viking Cruise as the tours run seemlessly and are high quality.
The ratings they give to those who review is a scam!
by Dawn3547 on 2018/10/26 23:44
I have submitted nearly 100 reviews over the years which I have enjoyed doing but what bothers me is the “rewards” and badges given to those who review and the badgering they do to lure you into making more reviews to be “the top reviewer in your area”. Or, “you are 2 reviews away from receiving Photographer status”, etc!!!!! I write reviews in order to share my excitement or dissatisfaction with a place of service. The place has to be pretty bad for me to complain- the businesses we review can make or break someone’s business.... that’s a serious responsibility. I take re Jewish g seriously. My reason for 2 stars for Trip Advisor is the giving of rewards for which nothing is actually given. It’s enough reward for me to be able to help a fellow traveler but be straight with your reviewers. If you award “trophies” at least back them up with a small discount on a hotel, or a meal, etc! I am a member of many rewards clubs for gasoline, restaurants, or shopping venues. These are great perks and command my loyalty. Wouldn’t that be nice if Trip Advisor extended this appreciation to its reviewers? Just saying........😁
Dependably yummy!
by iachimo1 on 2019/01/15 22:37
December 2018: Took 2 out-of-town girlfriends. Very tasty lemony chicken breast with capers, rice, grilled asparagus (nightly special) and HGF burger with fries. Creme brûlée delicious. Not too noisy. Late October 2018: Took 7 out-of-town childhood girlfriends. Ultimately it turned out fine BUT a near fiasco at first: our reservation was lost (even though we’d called twice); we ended up after a 30 minute wait asking to seat us anywhere; we ended up as a table of 4 up front and a table of 3 in the very back. Fortunately, everyone liked what they’d ordered: lasagna, a shrimp and pasta dish, chicken, bison burger. Sorry can’t recall more specifically, but basically from the menu. The waitress gave each table a dessert gratis and we loved the creme brûlée! Early October 2018: my companion and I loved our late dinner at the bar! Bison burger for me was tasty, not greasy, nicely topped with cheese and lettuce and tomato. Companion’s chicken sandwich was goodly sized, nicely fried and well seasoned. He really liked the fries too. Wonderful bartender- can’t recall his name, darn it! Lucky to have this in lil ole Weaverville.
Wonderful accommodations and great staff!
by Groovy mini on 2018/04/19 19:23
We stayed at Melia Cozumel over three weeks last month from February 24th through March 12th, 2018. Everything was fantastic, want to give particular high marks to the following employees: Hilario, the beach waiter who was always eager to bring what we wanted- we dont usually drink much but probably did on the days he worked:) Alicia our maid who remembered that we need extra waters for medication etc.. Alberto the waiter in the buffet area who is so friendly and taught us Mayan words , like “show-pee” that means finished, all done. Hassell went over and above at the concierge and the other girl, Tania, was very helpful to assist my calling the airline to extend our trip and help with Spanish translating. Sandra from the office did a good job setting it all up for us. Bryan was very helpful with my printing a few important documents, so patient and calm. Martin, the younger waiter at breakfast was very polite and refilled the coffees quickly. Tania helpful at concierge. On our last night, Jose at at dinner buffet with good with the wine refills. Antonio at breakfast always came with more coffee and water. Those are the standouts I took notes about, although I have to say not one of the staff were ever rude, the activities team was funny and friendly and even though we didnt participate in anything but maybe Bingo once they made us feel welcome if we wanted to. Another enjoyable stay and we look forward to next time! Thank you!
Historic Scotland Explorer Pass
by dmnurse2016 on 2019/06/12 21:26
We were gently pressured to buy the 5 day Historic Scotland Explorer Pass on our visit to Stirling Castle. The ticket concession seller described how we would be saving money and “avoiding the long lines” to buy tickets to enter Edinburgh Castle or any of the 77 Historic Scotland places. We spent 3+ hours enjoying Stirling Castle and had a decent lunch there. 2 days later we went to Edinburgh and entered the Edinburgh Castle. It was cold, windy and very uncomfortable after 1 hour doing the guided tour and the castle guide suggested a pub for lunch instead of eating at the castle cafeteria. We went to the one he suggested, warmed up and returned to see the rest of the castle. When we attempted to re-enter the castle, we were told that our “pass” entitled us to ONE visit to any of the sites. We explained the NO ONE had described this limit on the pass. She then went to page 3 of the pass and showed us the fine print. We were then told even though NO ONE had warned of this limitation on the pass, that if we wanted to go into the castle after our lunch break, we “could buy another ticket”. We decided not to be ugly Americans and left after letting them know we thought it was quite unfair.
A day for me in the air on China Eastern Airlines
by gene and ilana go to Asia on 2018/01/28 07:38
Ilana and I were so excited about our first trip to Asia. Thailand and Cambodia were a dream we’ve had for what seems to be forever. But truthfully I was dreading the long flight. The longest part was from JFK to Bangkok and I imagined us getting there and losing another day sleeping off the jet lag. So we booked our travel in business class for the first time. It was a delight. The service was excellent. From the moment we checked in. Their lounge at the airport was very comfortable. The food on the plane was beautifully prepared and served and the lay flat beds were amazing. We slept 11 of the 14+hours to Shanghai and after a short layover we were on our way again for the final part of our trip. We arrived fresh and ready to tour an exciting city. And it was a pretty good deal cost wise as well compared to the price we got for business class on other airlines. Over all, a great start to our 2 weeks in Asia.
Could be Better
by DaddyOBest on 2019/07/09 12:43
Several flaws that should be fixed for smartphones and some for pcs. Major flaw is adding quick bites to eating establishments. There are no rules on this and restaurants are changed to quick-bites because of someone’s answer etc. By doing this, they are no longer listed as restaurants. Major problem is if you are looking for a great place to eat, TA searches restaurants by default!!! Guess what? The favorite eating place you are looking for doesn’t show up because it is quick-bites. The only way around this is going through several filtering screens and click restaurants and quik-bites when doing a search. I didn’t find this for 6 months and always missed great restaurants. These restaurants missed had order at the counter, bring out your food and refill drinks sometimes but were called qb. I even ran across places that took your order at the table but were labeled qb. TA please fix this and have an easy to find suggestions area to alert you to these problems and many more with feedback given to reporters.
Bill’s Front Porch
by blueeyeddarlin on 2018/12/01 00:39
Hidden Gem in Wilmington especially when you get to see and hear Folkstone Stringband! Lucky enough to be at Bill’s Front Porch when they had live music with a phenomenal Bluegrass Band named Folkstone Stringband! Beers are housemade and the new “Christmas Pants” is smooth and not too sharp. With the romaine lettuce scare, salads are a little slack but still delicious 🍁 quesadilla s are delicious especially the brisket. Their cheese dip is house made but is a little floury not cheesy enough . The craft brews are great with a variety of taste experiences. From the sharp citrus based IPA’s to the smooth new Christmas brew called “Christmas Pants”. By far the smoothest of all the craft brews Bill’s makes. Two members of the waitstaff are the best I’ve encountered. Lindsey and Sandy are some of the best waitstaff I have had. Attentive and on top of everything. Ask for them, you won’t be sorry. They are great!!! Overall Bills is a great eating and drinking establishment, Good food and beverage, but add the great music of Folkstone Stringband and you have a winning combination!

Lost confidence
by marinadoug on 2019/01/28 14:53
My wife and I always check out the reviews for hotels and restaurants and have had great results. The reviews reflect accurately what our experiences have been. We have to weed out some of the negative reviews, some people just have to vent when the world just doesn’t go their way. But now TA is rating with their “Best Value”. My wife and I travel to many of the same cities for work and have learned where to stay and not to stay. Their Best Value is completely false and we must say a completely fake rating for us the consumer. We can’t begin to understand any logic in these ratings. There is no cost association and for sure there is no quality association. We are guessing that TA has sold out to who will pay the most. In the end we have lost confidence in anything they say now and feel we must check other sites to be sure of all our future choices for hotels and restaurants. Such a shame, it was such a good site, you can still switch to consumer ratings....but have they sold out to the highest bidder there, if they are ok making a fake Best Value are they ok with making or modifying reviews to the highest bidder and they become fake.
Plastic Surgery
by cherrydelo on 2018/09/15 13:27
Dr Enrique Alejandro is so so good. I did a lot of research on surgeons in Guadalajara, or Dr Alejandro does most of his work, and compared his technique, his skills, and his training with the best surgeons in New York. My sister-in-law had had work done by Dr. uses the same technique and she looks amazing. I did my research and Dr Alejandro uses the latest under the muscle technique not used by many because they have not had the training. He takes his time and treated me as an individual piece of art, sculpting my face in a way that did not change the way I look but a younger version of myself. I don’t look like “ i’ve had work done”. I’m just younger looking. The Elaen Center in Nuevo Vallarta Connect to the San Javier hospital is clean, the staff professional and caring. Not only that but he would contact me to check up on me, to have me come in for regular checks up without extra charge. He’s young, professional and takes immense pride in his work.
I use it daily to locate the best dining hotels, etc
by Fishin' Dan on 2019/06/22 19:45
An Example: my wife & I were driving home from Branson last week, decided to stop for lunch in Harris, Ark., opened trip advisor and searched for “Nearby” restaurants. We found Jessi’s and it was a hidden gem, would have never believed that a restaurant this good would be there. We then continued on and found an extremely good value hotel (Econo lodge) on the outskirts of Little Rock. We could tell from the Traveler reviews that this was a great place to stay the night, and it turned out to be true, absolutely. we then searched for for nearby restaurants, using “Cajun & Creole” dining offerings in the search filter. “Copeland’s came up , and it was wonderful. These examples are from just one day of several hundred days of traveling in the last three years. Trip adviser has been an essential part of our travels, and we’d be “travel dysfunctional” if we didn’t have it in the future.
A great resource when traveling
by KashmirX on 2019/04/04 01:39
I come to rely on this app to find great restaurants in areas I never been before. My coworkers brag about the places I discover from this app. I use it when picking out hotels as well. The reviews help prevent me from staying in some dives. Just because it is $30 cheaper a night than the other hotels doesn’t mean it is a deal. I have made the mistake of saving $5 on a hotel and regretting to this day. Read the reviews and look for patterns in the reviews, do your due diligence on the reviewers also. If a reviewer gave a place a bad grade does that person ever give anyone a good review or is it even their first review. Find out why a business, restaurant or hotel got received a good review or bad review. Then decide if you want to visit that business. This app will save you time and money if you use it and you can find some rare hidden treasures while traveling or right in your hometown.
Prom pics at the Benson
by rebelmom999 on 2018/04/08 05:21
We have stayed at the Benson several times when downtown for events. This weekend was prom and we had plans to take pics at the Japanese Gardens. Unfortunately Oregon had other ideas. In a panic to come up with a dry option for pics I remembered the lovely lobby of the Benson. The valet was sweet and agreed to keep the Jeep up front so the kids didn’t have to park and walk through the rain to get to the lobby. The staff watched for 20 minutes while we captured their wonderful prom in photos before a manager stomped up to inform us that if we weren’t paying for an event we weren’t allowed to take pics in their lobby in order to preserve the “reputation of the Benson”. I thanked him and explained the rain caused us to scramble for an appropriate indoor venue for prom pics. I know the floor staff knew policy and yet allowed the kids this wonderful opportunity. Thank you Benson Hotel. The pics were gorgeous and the kids were thrilled.
3 in 1 Tulum, Snorkeling, cenote/cave expedition in Cancun
by Amy Crossfit on 2019/04/06 21:12
What an amazing experience! Our guides Pepe and Juan picked my so and I up at our resort on time and they were very attentive to the group. They had snacks and water available for us as it was going to be 8 hours before we got to eat lunch. They were very knowledgeable with the history of the Talum Ruins and they made us laugh during this tour. They knew all of our names and took time to take pictures for us too. They were experienced snorkeler and made sure we were all safe. Pepe and Juan made the tour of the cenote and caves so amazing! The lunch was at the cenote site and was fairly good but it was the company of the people in the group that made the lunch so enjoyable. By the end of the day the group became a mini family and we bonded with each other and to our guides. It truly was sad to leave them all and I will remember each member of our group forever!!! Thank you Pepe and Juan!!!
One Of My Top Five Apps!
by Mike22233 on 2017/10/31 19:40
I have used TripAdvisor for nearly ten years. I never travel or try a new restaurant without searching the site and reading the reviews. Recently, I have booked hotels and dinner reservations more frequently using the site. I have read some of the other reviews. I disagree with most of the criticism. I understand that this is a free site and that there is a company behind it that has commercial needs. However, if you have spent enough time using the site and the app, you will recognize the advertising. It's easily maneuvered to find the strictly objective advice. For example, I would prefer that the site did not default to "Best Value" ranking when searching hotels, as it is not fully reflective of hotel rankings by users. However, provided that you remember to change the default setting on each search to "Traveler Ranked", you can find the objective data.
How the World Communicates
by EddieStarr on 2019/06/05 22:49
When you want to know about something you come to TripAdvisor it’s just what you do when you want to learn about experiences fine photography no price points maybe find some good professional tips on how to avoid long lines something really special about a venue and maybe learn something that you’ve never known before so when you go and visit you find something special and Magical Place , TripAdvisor lets you do all of that and much much more, it’s like a collective consciousness of knowledge a dynamic body of growth, each day adds new experiences and people talk about them here , this is where the road comes to communicate and this is where you should come to get information on your next trip and if you have the chance look me up I have a couple reviews and places for you to go it’s a wonderful World let TripAdvisor show you where to go 🙏🏻
Wow - Pasta !!
by JohnZen99 on 2019/04/02 10:43
We ran into this place by accident.... then read about it. We liked the look of the place - very funky but intimate. It seemed to (by comments) have devolved into something slightly ‘touristy’ these days. So we were confused but liked the hand written menu. We read and heard from the greeter that it was important to get a reservation.....(“Don’t be late, you have an hour and a half to eat.”). With all that we waited outside for the place to open at 8 sharp. The prices seemed a tad high when we ordered. TO SUM: The paparredali (sp?) I had was the best pasta I’ve ever tasted. The bisteka I had was tasty. Both dishes were VOLUMINOUS. Very large portions. My wife had the house specialty pasta and lamb. We could have just ordered one pasta dish and a ‘secondi’ and been fine. The atmosphere was terrific, the hard working server and owner/host were friendly. In short - this was 4.5 stars and a nice nice place to discover.
Playa Grande 2017 new year
by Ycnibrc on 2018/01/01 04:34
Well first impression is good. Facility is clean and the hosts and staff are nice. I choose building O for the nice view and short walk to the beach. Building P was all booked. The 1 bedroom is nice and spacious with kitchen 2 bathroom 2 balcony. Get the higher floor 3 or above for better view. We have our first dinner at calina restaurant and it was good. If u want some free credit for food and beverage then do the time share breakfast if u dont care then skip it. The pool is nice and heated i think its a salt water pool it tase like salt water. Beach is very nice however because of the drop off near shore they recommend no swimming but theres people still swim. The beach is very quiet not crowded like cancun mostly because of the current undertow so not too many people swimming. You can walk to the left of the beach and climb over a rock mount then u will be at lovers beach which u can swim and u can see the land end rock arch.

I wrote a review and got auto corrected, didn’t catch it and now I cannot find the EDIT thing. Haven’t seen now if they send me an email to review and edit before it is actually published though. Also It would be nice if somehow the app interfaced with a map without having to go in and out of the app. Many times I am trying to find hotels, restaurants, attractions by locations and proximity and I get tired of having to go back and forth, would be nice to be able to ‘pin/ sticky’ note stuff within the TA app so I don’t have to figure it out all over again. I’ve started taking out my paper map and using sticky notes which works but would be nice to have something user friendly like that within TA app. I have used this app for many years and try to add a review each time I go someplace, and I really depend on this when I travel. Now I just tried to submit and it says my nickname is taken, it’s my nickname so what’s up?
Three Rs at the Residence Inn, Myrtle Beach
by Margaret and Jim on 2019/04/13 15:06
During the week of March 25,2019, Margaret and I enjoyed a very pleasing stay at the new Residence Inn at Myrtle Beach. Fun recreation, tasty refreshments and timeless relaxation. Joe May, Savanah and Paula responded to our needs at the front desk, and Clarissa, Tasha and Teresa ensured that our suite was refreshed each day. Charles at the bar helped with liquid refreshments, and Queens, Donna, Patricia and others provided a delicious breakfast each morning. Dinner at the hotel was sumptuous. Sea Captain’s House and Damon’s served tasty lunches each day. Take you to Glenn for assisting with the television hookup. Although the hotel opened less than two weeks prior to our arrival, minor construction and installation tasks were underway, with no impact on our stay. Chris Funderburk , Sree Organization provided us with a snapshot of the remaking tasks, and offered advise on other Sree operates hotels. Beginning with Mr. May, thank you all for a fantastic, pleasurable vacation.
Hector’s in Mazatlan
by kueso on 2017/11/12 19:36
This Was not a fine dining experience as we expected. I would’ve felt more welcome at Burger King and been better taken care of. Our whole experience from ordering to checking out was less than 45 minutes. The waiter took our drink order and we only got one Cube of ice after requesting a full glass. After he brought Iceless tea, I ordered a glass of red wine and never received it. The prawn spaghetti was good as was the risotto. I had the lasagna and Stouffers makes better. We were served our food & received no further attention from any of the waiters despite asking for ice and salt and pepper. We asked several times for the check and when we finally received it, we paid part in pesos and put part on the credit card. We told him to put 605 pesos on the card and he came back and had charged us 620. We will never go back here again. There were people at every table when we arrived but by the time we left 45 minutes later the place was relatively empty. People did not seem to be enjoying their dining experience either.
Marietas Snorkel, Whale Watching, kayak and paddle board Boat #1
by lettergram on 2019/02/16 03:49
We went out in Boat #1 with Pablo. It was SO much fun! Booked this as an excursion with our cruise. The crew did a phenomenal job. They were professional and courteous, knowledgeable and ENTERTAINING. They filled the travel time with such entertaining dance and music routines. The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll comedy show was AWESOME. The snorkeling, paddle boards and kayak was very well done and organized. We were able to see some interesting fish and we saw several whales and birds along the way. The lunch was very good as well as the drinks from the open bar. I was also impressed with the professional photographer on board that captured our day on film. No pressure to buy but he did such good work, we couldn’t resist buying the flash drive of our day. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat - it was the highlight of our cruise. Be sure to ask for BOAT #1 and Pablo’s crew!
Won’t leave home without this app!
by tw-mich on 2019/03/22 17:55
In today’s highly competitive world, many restaurants and hotels are scrambling to get customers in their doors. This app is one of the most valuable apps for travelers who don’t want to be surprised with poor service, low-quality food, and bad environments. I really like it when I’m researching a restaurant and deciding to go there and being able to make a reservation right through the app. One caution that I recommend is to always look at more than one or two reviews. I normally look at at least 10 low reviews and 10 high reviews before I make a decision and always remember restaurants and hotels are gaming the system by putting in their own reviews of their own establishments. I usually put more weight into a review from someone who has a history of traveling which you can see in their profile.
Constant use
by Emahiserj on 2018/07/28 22:18
This is an update of my review reflected below. We constantly use this when we travel and for restaurants in our home area. We still think this app is very good and easy to use. One of the keys is that we find the latest places are included . However one of my pet peeves is still there. Reviews no matter how old. Are still reflected. A review over 12-15 months old does not seem to be current enough to matter. Things change, people leave, corrections are made . We use this in our travels primarily for restaurants and places to stay. Glad we see the good bad and ugly. However reviews should be purged after 12-15 months to keep out the old ratings. Have seen reviews going back to 2008 which makes no sense due to being relevant This has been my review for couple years. Need to purge old reviews as they have zero meaning as out of date. Today actually saw a review for 2007
Frustrating
by Traveler&Oenophile2019 on 2019/06/11 06:02
I’ve always loved TripAdvisor, but they’ve made so many changes to their app and website. For instance it’s completely unhelpful to search for hotels now, because you’re forced to fill in dates of travel, even if you don’t know yet which dates you’re traveling. If you enter dates many hotels won’t show up, as they have no availability, therefore it makes it impossible to research every hotel in a given city. Their search engine is also very frustrating now. Trying to search for a city is difficult as it auto fills certain areas for you. For instance, if I want to research Bologna Italy, I will use the search bar for “Bologna”, then it auto fills the location as “near me,” or maybe one of my last city searches. So I’ll get a restaurant or hotel with the word “Bologna” in it, but near my house. Just weird and so annoying. I wish there was a better website, but unfortunately we’re stuck with this one as it continues to get worse and worse. :(
Grand Luxxe at Vidanta
by yogabodil on 2019/04/06 23:44
Once again we returned after 2 weeks of vacationing at our favorite resort Grand Luxxe at Vidanta in Puerto Vallarta. It was the ultimate vacation as it always is, never disappoints. But this year our concierge on the 8th floor of building one was a lovely young lady named Anika from Germany. She anticipated our every need and wish and always with a smile. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and our anniversary, and on each occasion some special culinary treats and balloons arrived making us feel very special. Beautiful detail. Our day maid Alejandra was equally amazing, always with a smile as she worked. Norma our evening girl just as lovely. Must also mention Jorge at the grand Luxxe taxi arrival area, who offered to take us in a private cart as the number 7 cart was full every time it passed. But I have to say, no matter who you are in contact with are special, which is why we have returned to Vidanta during these last 15 years as nothing else can really compare to the service, the beauty of the resort and the service. When they added the “plaza” . I was overwhelmed with happiness, cheese shop, French bakery, wine shop, delicatessen, and a little grocery store. Plus all the wonderful restaurants, a new one “limon y Sal” yum yum. So, thanks to the staff at Vidanta for making our vacation so memorable. Bodil and Larry Friedman 💃💃
Horrible! Don’t Use!!
by Dissatisfied Customer z on 2018/12/09 14:14
First, there are problems logging into the app. You have to prove you’re not a robot over and over again. Also, once you are logged in you don’t know it because there’s not any confirmation or landing page. Instead, after a successful login you are taken back to the login page which causes you to think that you were unsuccessful. What a mess!! I booked three tours for one day. Without asking or even giving a reason, TripAdvisor took it upon themselves to cancel one of my tours and change the time of the second tour. When I arrived at checkin to get my ticket I was informed that the tour was in Hebrew, which I do NOT speak. Because this was only an hour before the app advised that I would not be refunded. When I tried to look for a customer service phone number, I found that none were listed. All I could do was email a complaint which in turn I received an email back stating that my problem would be looked into within 3 to 5 DAYS!!! What a waste!!! I can only hope that at this evening’s planned event I will not have any problem getting my ticket!!
Friendliest staff, cleanest and coziest rooms, reasonably priced!
by Unhappy Scrabble addict on 2018/08/20 03:53
This is a review for the best Western Inn at Facetock in Bandon, Oregon. We stayed there in a recent vacation and had been there a year earlier too. We specifically came back to this hotel due to the friendliness of the staff, the coziness and cleanliness of the room, and the reasonable price. The hotel is across the street from the beach so we’d wake up every day to fresh air and the sound of the waves. Every day breakfasts , included in the price, were always delicious and carefully prepared with many options. The check-in-staff, the cooks, the hostesses, room service attendees, were all friendly, professional and made us feel at home. Kudos go to Larry, the manager there, Eileen, and the rest of the welcome staff, who gave us great suggestions as to places to visit in Bandon. We highly recommend staying at this lovely hotel if you’re in the Bandon area.
Every time I travel, and sometimes at home.
by Cavalry God on 2018/06/17 19:11
I love this app, I use it wherever I go to find places to eat and things to do. I return the favor by posting reviews everywhere I go... EXCEPT when at home. (I live in Vegas, and honestly, we want the tourists to mostly stay in the tourist areas. If you come to town to visit relatives, they may take you off the strip for a good meal, but the town is laid out for you to easily get back and forth in the tourist areas, and to be able to do ANYTHING you want while there, and for the locals to be able to avoid tourists by avoiding the tourist areas). I have traveled the world, this app has helped me out on four continents, didn’t get out and about on the fifth (work stopover), haven’t been to Australia or Antarctica yet.... and honestly, I don’t think this app will help much when I do get to Antarctica..... but it helps EVERYWHERE else.....
JW Marriott, Bangkok Thailand,
by Vic and Bev on 2017/11/13 02:13
My wife and I had the most wonderful 10 days staying at this Marriott! From the moment our cab dropped us off from the airport the "staff" worked as a team to make certain all of of our needs and wishes were met always with a smile and ultimate courtesy. I would describe everyone on the "team" as ALWAYS kind and from the heart. Our times with the Concierge, Front Desk and Executive Lounge always exceeded our expectations. We would like to acknowledge everyone by name as each one was very special to us. The Manager of the team is Patt. She leads by example always from her "heart" and everyone on her team, without exception, follows her example! They were all "born" that way! It is natural and easy for them. The "team" members by name are: Fong, Honey, Lukpla, Peach, Day, Touch, Mena, Genova, Por, and Noon. If you want at great total experience Stay at the JW Marriott, Bangkok!
My go-to advisor
by koa12345 on 2019/05/10 13:59
Trip advisor is my source and I find it very rarely wrong. What you see is not the opinion of a single critic but the input of masses which is why it is general pretty accurate information. You can even write your own reviews but be very careful about writing a negative review. I did that once, found I was in error, tried to retract the review. There is a process. It's fairly hidden and after I did find it, it did not work. I felt terrible because the restaurant owner had worked in good faith with me, and I had promised him I would retract the review. (What had happened was my own error, not his.) when that failed, I decided if I could not retract it, the next best thing would be to counter balance it with a glowing review. It would not let me enter another review for a month. If it were not for this glitch in the Trip Advisor software, I would give them a full and solid 5.
Omg, this app makes me so mad
by Rockfish420311 on 2018/01/13 17:27
I get about a kabillion emails from trip advisor begging me to write a review, so I try. I go to the TripAdvisor app, try to add a photo with my review but only about half of my photos are available to choose from and NEVER the photo I’m looking for. So I go to the “help section” of trip advisor and it says “you can’t upload pics from the app you have to do that from the full site”. Which is bs because I COULD upload a pic from the app just NOT the pic I wanted. So, I went to the full site via safari, which is a bigger headache. The main page is insistently trying to get me to search for a hotel or restaurant near Palm Springs, CA (which is about 3000 miles away from me and not a place I’m even thinking about visiting.) Then, when I TRY to write a review via safari it tries to push me to the app. I’m literally 43 minutes into trying to write a review of a great restaurant I visited last night and I’m still not done. Why do you make your site so difficult to use? Do you want to be obsolete? Is that your goal? You’re well on your way.
