From Bill White --
The Better Business Bureau said it fielded more complaints about hotels than any other business during the July-September quarter. That's amid the tourist season, of course.
The BBB didn't elaborate on the nature of the complaints.
Auto repair and service businesses got the second highest volume of complaints during the three months, the BBB said.
Next was a tie among new car dealers, restaurants and telecom companies.
Completing the BBB top 12 list for industries with the most complaints were health care providers, contractors, painting contractors, car rental/leasing, apartments, property managers and retail jewelers.
The BBB also takes calls from consumers to check on the records of businesses. It got the highest number of these inquiries during the quarter from people checking out contractors. Next came used car dealers, auto service/repair businesses, roofing contractors and jewelers.
