Groupon is a great deals and savings site. However, just like a lot of deal-based websites, there are pro’s and con’s to consider, especially when booking hotel rooms on the North Shore.
A guest of ours recently wrote a blog post about an American Airlines experience that was booked through a flight-deals website. Not good!
So what is Groupon and how can you avoid being punched in the face by this and many other hotel and resort deal-sites? Read on!
- You Get What You Pay For: If you are buying a low-cost hotel or resort room, even though the room pictures look awesome, always remember that you get what you pay for. Low cost typically means paper thin walls, poor room care and definitely not quality. Beware of excellent looking rooms in pictures that evolve into something worse, upon your arrival. At Larsmont Cottages, you get picturesque views of Lake Superior, amazing quality rooms and a resort to suite your every need.
- There Is A Better Deal Around Every Corner: Groupon is notorious for serving its deal-seeking customers with multiple deals, in once specific area. For example, in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota there are multiple “good-deals” on several hotels. But which one do you choose? It can be confusing. Make sure, when you book through Groupon.com that you pick the hotel with the best reviews. You can find these hotel reviews on Google places and Tripadvisor.
- Beware Of Customer Service: The true measure of a great hotel and resort is its customer service levels. Groupon doesn’t have the best customer service and because of this, it reflects on their For example, Beacon Pointe, Larsmont Cottages and Caribou Highlands Resort have some of the best reviews online and this is a direct reflection of the level of service our guests receive when they stay with us.
Do not let Groupon get you down and do not get punched in the face! Book online through our site and take advantage of our excellent deals at Larsmont!
