Washington, D.C. hotel photo  that makes it appear as though the U.S. Capitol Building is only steps away—in fact, it’s almost a mile away.
A  seemingly romantic beach is actually in the center of an active construction zone.
A  male model emerges with a surfboard from what appears to be an expansive wave pool. It’s no bigger than a hot tub.
A Caribbean chain offers “king beds” that are really two double beds shoved together.

Oyster.com has hotel reviews for 14 destinations in the U.S. and Caribbean and over 200,000 undoctored photos. You choose the price range, ratings, and amenties you want and they give you “the bottom line” summary plus links to a review full of  pros and cons.

A New York hotel we chose had 161 photos, info about what to do nearby, and gossip about those who’s stayed there, such as Marlon Brando, Tennessee Williams and Vladimir Horowitz.  Tripadvisor.com has lots more destinations, but if yours is on Oyster.com’s list, it will give you the true picture.
