The “Best” One-Star Yelp Reviews of National Parks Mike Richard August 29, 2015 Sidelines, United States 3 Comments I’m endlessly fascinated by really, really bad reviews on sites like TripAdvisor, Yelp, etc. More specifically: undeserved one-star reviews, especially at places like The Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Park. This recent article from Mother Jones doesn’t disappoint. A sample: Zion National Park Zion National Park © Cyril Fluck “Scenery is grand and huge and up in the air and distant and impersonal.” ?! Talk about missing the point. 3 Responses ajdeville August 31, 2015 I love the bad reviews. When looking for accommodation, I will often click the ‘terrible’ on Trip Advisor just for a laugh. I’ve come across some really odd reasons for giving a place one star. Like the guy who gave one star because the room didn’t have iPod connectivity. Or the lady who thought the motel restaurant should be open 24/7… when the motel was in rural Australia. Keep posting these ones – they remind me of how funny and strange humans are. Reply Mike Richard September 9, 2015 Haha – will do, Ajdeville! I’m actually putting together a weekly column just to highlight these best-worst reviews because I love them so much =) Reply Stephen Garone September 20, 2015 That’s hilarious. And oh-so-sad. Imagine this person in the Grand Canyon?! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published. Name* Email* Website Let\'s Make Sure You\'re Human ... *Time limit is exhausted.
