No “Pig in a Poke” Hotel Selections

Take a look at I’ve added it to my site to give you the added convenience of finding a good hotel at a reasonable price.

Choosing a Hotel Can Be Tough.
Choosing the hotel and location in a city is important to me — and it is probably important to you. I want a nice clean room with amenities, in a safe area, close to the places I plan to visit — and I want a competitive price for the city I’m visiting.

No Pig in a Poke Hotel Selection.
I usually search all the sites looking at hotel options and prices. Many of them don’t give you the name of the hotel before you book — and don’t let you cancel after you’ve booked. Sometimes it works for you, but I have also found that it doesn’t always work out well. I recently used a very popular price-oriented site to book a hotel room in the downtown area of a major city. This was one of those sites that doesn’t permit you to select your own hotel. The price was good but I ended up with a room about 20 blocks from the downtown area of that city. Not what I had in mind!

I’ve come to love for the choices it gives me and because I can easily cancel or change my reservation if needed at most of the hotels. And I’ve found the hotel rates here to be competitive with all the other search sites — and doesn’t charge a service fee! Check it out and let me know what you think! You’ll also find some of the hotels I stayed at listed on the Quikbook page.
