At ResortsandLodges.com, we know that 85% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations (2017). It is important to us to be a trustworthy source of information for travelers. Reviews will most often remain on our site indefinitely, however, we ask that you abide by these guidelines to help keep ResortsandLodges.com safe and reliable:
First-Hand - Reviews should include details of your individual experience that other travelers might find helpful. They shouldn't include second-hand information, links to external sources, or rumors.
Offensive Content - No threats, profanity, sexually explicit language, hate language or content that is not appropriate for people of all ages.
Age requirement - Must be of the age of 13 or older to write a review.
Relevance - Our reviews are meant to be helpful advice for travelers. They should not contain information that does not pertain to travel research, such as personal rants, social or political commentary, or other discussion not related to travel research.
Valid Account & E-Mail Etiquette - Email addresses and information must be correct, no HTML tags or excessive CAPS, slang or symbols.
Post Respectfully - In an effort to keep both travelers and business owners safe, reviews containing personal insult, profanity, or hostile comment, even in a well-considered review, can lead to its removal.
Conflict of Interest - ResortsandLodges.com is dedicated to providing transparency between travelers and businesses. It is also our mission to level the playing field for hospitality properties, so together we may provide memorable experiences to travelers throughout the world. We know that the most valuable reviews are objective and unbiased. Examples of content that will be removed include but are not limited to:
- Writing a review about your own business.
- Submitting reviews from other sources on your own business.
- Negatively reviewing a competitor to manipulate their rating.
- Writing a review as a current or former employee about employment experience.
