Weekend survey: Have you ever lied to get a hotel discount?

Ever told a little white lie to get a few bucks off a hotel room?

Earlier this week, I brought you a stunning confession from a hotel reservationist, admitting that she lied to customers about the best rate. But do hotel guests do the same thing?

If you’ve ever bent a fact or two about your circumstances, claiming you were a government employee or a AAA member or were on your honeymoon, you can anonymously confess your sins in this week’s survey.

Here’s a link to the survey.

Here are the results.

And a quick follow-up question. Why did you feel you could fudge the facts? (After all, if hotels do it, why can’t we?) Did you ever come clean with the hotel?

Please .

This survey is being conducted in cooperation with Consumer Traveler and the Consumer Travel Alliance.
