Online reviews are increasingly becoming popular among online users and service providers. The hotel industry in many countries extensively utilises the online reviews to evaluate customer satisfaction and dissatisfaction.

The study was conducted for time span of three months in which the online negative reviews or complaints of budget hotels pertaining to various operational departments were examined using content analysis. The findings of the study will be a valuable input for budget hotels to focus on most specific complaints of their departments so that the customer experiences could be enhanced at the budget segment hotels in India
