Submitter’s comments: How about a directory of hotels that dances across the screen so you can’t read it or access the information?
All written in tiny white lettering that frequently sits on top of a white area of photograph so that can’t be read either…Magnificent!
Vincent Flanders’ comments: Once again, my first question is, “Where’s the focus?” Because the navigational buttons have different colors, it keeps me from focusing on them and they’re also hard to read. I don’t see any “dancing” directories. I just see ugly web design.
A lot of text is hard to read because of the lack of contrast and the size of the type—it’s too small. I bet the site was designed on a laptop, which makes every element larger and easier to read.
As bad as the “More Hotels” may be, the home page is no slouch when it comes to sucking. In many ways, it’s even harder to read the text here than on the “More Hotels” page. Plus, you generally sit closer to your laptop’s screen than you do to your monitor on the desk.
