Unethical and misleading advertising by Hotwire leads to a dangerous situation for me

by , Aug 22, 2012 Rated a Helpful Review
I believe that Hotwire has changed its business policies or changed management.  I have always had positive experiences with Hotwire in the past, with motels being what they said they were.  However, I got stuck into a horribly shabby little ...
