By no means use this reservation service. The company advertises prominently a $10 cancellation fee and so I booked a hotel I had not seen before. When we got to our destination a day early, we found the hotel to reek of disinfectant and the room we were assigned had a see-through toilet and shower area (we are two adults and a teen son). We told the staff we were cancelling our reservation. The attendant told me that because I made the reservation on line, I would have to cancel directly with the agency. And so I sent an email cancelling, prepared to be charged the $10 cancellation fee so predominantly advertised. Directwithhotels.com wrote back that they had a 15-day cancellation policy and that they would not refund the money. I wrote and pointed out that the $10 cancellation fee is predominantly featured and that the 15-day policy is not even evident when making the purchase. They are insisting on charging us, and I will continue to contest it through the channels. I am mostly disappointed with the blatantly misleading policy. Again, do not use this service. Rather, contact the hotel directly. Sharie, Thank you for your email. I made the reservation only several days ahead of time and did so mainly because the cancellation charge of $10 was prominently shown on the web page. I made a special trip in person to the hotel to cancel the day before. If I had noticed a 15-day cancellation policy I would not have made a reservation through your website. That policy is not prominently displayed and not within the standard parameters of hotel cancellations.
