According to TRAVEL AGE WEST:
Travel Reviews Continue to Grow
“There’s no question that user-generated reviews are here to stay. Benchmark Hospitality found that a whopping 80 percent of agents believe that this consumer tool is only at the beginning of its growth trajectory, while 50 percent of agents admit to using online reviews in determining booking options. More hotels are sending “thank you” emails, asking guests to comment on some of the most popular review sites and, as travel reviews continue to gain popularity, hotels will develop unique programs to solicit these reviews from their guests.”
Here at CHBO our renters take great interest in property listings with prior renter reviews. See the blue bubbles on these property listings? Properties with reviews standout. All it takes is an extra minutes to ask renters to complete and submit a review on your property.
Here is an earlier post on encouraging tenant reviews.

The quality of your rental experience is very important to us. That’s why we ask you to share feedback about the property you rented. when you provide accurate reviews and timely comments, it helps ensure that the properties represented on this website meet the highest standards. Plus, your comments about your rental experience give other potential tenants a good idea of what to expect from that property in the future.
What’s included in a review
A property review consists of two parts:
- A numerical rating score ranging from 5 stars for ‘exceptional experience‘ to 1 star for ‘very poor experience‘.
- Comment about your experience renting the property. include details about the landlord and the renting experience.
All the comments and scores that you provide become a part of the property profile. the scores are displayed as a star, representing the average rating given by the tenant who rented the property through CHBO. You can find the score and comments on the reviews tab of each property listing’s details page. In your review, you may want to address the condition of the property, the ease of rental, and/or the quality of the property owner’s business practices. Do not include the owner or property managers name for privacy reasons.

This owner was easy to work with, and the property was in excellent condition! when we arrived we were very please at how spotless clean it was. We found the kitchen appliances and utensils were very sufficient, as were the linens and bedding. All the furniture was comfortable. the wrap-around deck had nice views and we enjoyed lounging there enjoying and daily refreshments. The locations was such that visits to attractions both east & west were convenient to get to, as was Rocky Mountains.
