Has anyone used airbnb before?
We were looking for a place to stay (population summer vacation area) for a wedding the first week of August. Hotels/motels were over $200 a night so I looked at airbnb for options. What was great was I found a little apartment that was a 5 min walk to the wedding venue! Also it was a 2bedroom so now H's friends could split it with us (vs knowing they wouldn't think to book until it was too late and end up crashing on our hotel floor but now I KNOW I will get my own room!)
It was the perfect solution to everything!
Then a few weeks ago the host messaged me saying she rather do week-long rentals and asked if we were interested. I said I would love to but money nor vacation time would allow us to do that and that we had to keep it just the weekend.
THEN this weekend I get an email from airbnb that our host has canceled our reservation and they can refund the money or give us an extra $35 to book something else. This area books fast (I booked back in March) and now everything is filling up and super expensive!!! I am so mad they can do this! I am so hesitant to use airbnb again knowing the host can just cancel whenever they want!
I am looking at hotwire, orbitz and VRBO.com trying to find something but it looks like we are going to end up spending more for less....
Has anyone had this issue before?!?!
