Wi-Fi Most Resented Hotel Charge, According to New Poll
More than three in four of travelers surveyed by Hotels.com opined that Wi-Fi access at hotels should be free.
Nearly as many, 73 percent, say they resent hotels charging for parking. They are also peeved to have to pay for bottled water, the morning newspaper and towels at the gym, in that order.
The poll also found that 80 percent of travelers believe minibars are a rip-off, with 74 percent saying they try to avoid them.
More than half of the travelers (56 percent) say they end up questioning their bill at check-out, to make sure they are not charged for extra extras.
The survey was of 1,815 British travelers.
The bottom line is that travelers are finding "hotel extras can really add up," says Hotels.com UK communications director Alison Couper.
