Book a hotel with Hotwire and realize it's haunted

I booked two rooms with Hotwire and then after I know the hotel's name, I search this hotel (Holiday Inn At Grand Island ,NY)

on the internet. I realize it's haunted, not just one person, lots of

people saying that.

I called them and hope I could rebook another 3* hotel in the area,

since it's their fault to put a haunted hotel in their list. They said no change , no refund.

People book rooms from Hotwire don't know the hotel's name . After you pay , then you know the name. Then it will be all too late,

because it's not refundable, or changable.

It's $240 value, I'm really dissapointed at Hotwire.com.

Is there any way I can get money back? Somebody help Pls!!!!

Since

Money back? I think I'd pay extra if it was really haunted. Great entertainment value.

You do know there's no such thing as "haunted", right?

And, some people would pay extra if they thought they were getting to stay at a "haunted" hotel....

I booked a hotel through hotwire because the prices were so great. We experienced very strange things and ended up leaving at 2am in the morning. Didnt expect to get my money back because it such a deal and that it what the contract states. It was a well known hotel but certain rooms were blocked off for hotwire and now we know why.

That's how Hotwire works - you take a chance on the hotel. That's all explained on their website, so I'm not sure why you're surprised. As for the hotel being haunted, well, I myself don't believe in ghosts, but clearly you do; but even the people who report seeing "Tanya" don't say she's anything other than mischievous. I don't see why this is such a dealbreaker for you.
