Google Hotel Finder Review: How Does It Measure Up?

Jul 6, 2012 by     No Comments    Posted under: Blog

Google hotel finder is now at the top of all Google searches for hotels and hotel deals.   The questions are:

1. How does it measure up on price?

2. How do you rate the search functions and usability?

I’ll start with the usability of this hotel search.  I give it low grades because viewing of hotels and sorting them is not easy.  After a search you only see 3 hotels listed in a small window on the right.   I’d certainly want to see more options especially when viewing hotel in cities with hundreds of options.  Sorting by name is not available either.  If you’re looking for a good price on one hotel it isn’t easy.

A bigger problem is price.  Yes…price is an issue!
