I can not say enough bad words about my experience with Airbnb.
Let me start off by saying that I am new to using Airbnb but I was given the task of booking a house for Labor Day weekend 2016 because my brother was fed up with the false advertisement. I thought it couldn't be that difficult. So, I found a nice place and booked it. Got a response that said (screen shot below) it would be tough to split a big holiday weekend. Let's back up, we requested 3 nights and staying Saturday to Tuesday. That includes Labor Day, the 3 night minimum advertised and the calendar showed available. I did everything right. The owner, Ashley, said she would be happy to book us if we stayed 4 nights. Of course she would right!! This was the first step in getting hustled for more. Then I tried to rebook for 4 nights and wouldn't you know, she raised the rate...a lot!!! My booking went from 2500 for 3 nights to 4K for 4 nights. That's the second hustle. You may think this was just a one time instance but no...this was the second in two days!! I have the emails and screen shots etc to prove it. The first go round was even worse...
In theory, air BnB is a great concept but because the business model allows for inexperienced business people to hustle clearly interested customers I will never attempt to use it again. Marriott...you got me back in two short days!! Sorry I thought about anyone else!
