English Conversation: Hotel Recommendations
Listen to the conversation, then read the explanation of the words and phrases.
Amanda: “I’m looking for a budget hotel in Orlando. Have you ever stayed at the Comfort Hotel?”
Joe: “Yes… I wouldn’t recommend it.”
Amanda: “Why not?”
Joe: “Granted, it’s cheap, but the place is filthy, the beds are uncomfortable, there’s no A/C, the breakfast is pretty skimpy… and the staff couldn’t care less about the guests.”
