This website has FALSE ADVERTISING, and MISLEADING information. Only after they charge your credit card do they provide additional information. Their cancellation policy does not exist.

www.getaroom.com website clearly listed a 'Non-Smoking' room and listed a price. ONLY after I gave a credit card # did the confirmation come back and state Preference for a 'Non-Smoking' Room NOT GUARANTEED.

I couldn't believe what I was reading on the screen. I immediately Cancelled the reservation, in less than 5 minutes. And just as immediately I got back a cancellation fee of one day's hotel room charge of $66.00+ dollars.

It gets worse. Per Tamarus Bedford, supervisor, it will take 7 to 10 days to get the credit back for the balance of the $189.00 total charge. I will probably have to make phone calls back to www.getaroom.com to actually get the credit.  There is no excuse for this. What a ripoff.

Their cancellation policy is dated BEFORE the reservation is made. For example I made the reservation on Nov 17, 2012, and their cancellation policy is anything booked after Nov 16, 2012 is charged a one night fee. So each consumer will be charged a one night fee, period.

Mr. Bedford told me their policies and procedures are the same as hotel.com, and other online hotel reservation websites. If so, I will call the hotel directly, and get a guarantee of a Non-Smoking Room which I must have. I can not believe consumers put up with this nonsense.

After this disaster I than called the hotel directly, and got a cheaper rate, and a 'Guarantee of a Non-Smoking Room'!  Lesson Learned.

I will be writing their corporate office, BBB in Dallas, Texas, Consumer Financial Protection Agency, and other interested parties.
