My Review Disappeared!!

Back in October of 2013, I wrote a review(5 stars) of Sweethaven Resort in Union Pier, MI. I was checking their listing today and my review is gone. I checked my profile and it still shows up there.

What gives? I seem to remember that there used to be a lot more than the 3 reviews which are showing now. Do the reviews time out after a certain amount of time on "specialty lodging"? They don't on regular motels.

Hi 368brucet;

For future reference, the “TripAdvisor Support” forum is available for general questions and assistance using the TripAdvisor site.

Your review is still there, visible to all.

Hmmm.

Sweetwater Cottages: tripadvisor.com/VacationRentalReview-g42774-… This is a Vacation Rental page.

Sweetwater Resort: tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g42774-d4866380 This is a Hotel Review page.

Are you saying that these are the same place and should be combined? Or does an owner of some Sweetwater Cottages have his Vacation Rental page, and there is also a hotel-like resort in the same area? It's the same phone number, so my guess is that this is one place.

Ask TripAdvisor_Staff to combine the listings. Use this method

www.TripAdvisor.com/GeneralSupport

-> Listings

-> Report a Duplicate Listing

I see it here:

tripadvisor.com/VacationRentalReview-g42774-…

has it perhaps just "fallen" off the first page?

Anyway I see your review still associated with the property. As an FYI, it is possible for reviews to be removed. The main two reasons are for guideline violations (but they need to be reported by someone and I'm not implying your review violates guidelines) and/or if the property has a change of ownership or major renovations (these two require evidence from the owner of the property).

Great. Will you tell TripAdvisor_Staff that these two listings need to be combined?

By the way, it is Sweethaven, not Sweetwater.
