The reviews have come after President Trump allegedly used the word to describe Haiti and countries from Africa.
The Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. usually has an average Yelp rating of 4 out of 5 stars, but people have recently swarmed the site to leave “shithole” comments and one-star ratings, bringing Trump’s hotel down to two stars.

After it was reported that the comments were made, President Trump has faced backlash and sparked international outrage.
According to Yelp, the business is currently being monitored by their support team for “content related to media reports.” The company placed a message at the top of the Trump International Hotel page.
It appears that hundreds of people have used “shithole” and other words in the review section for the hotel.
Antonia N. from Fairfax, Virginia wrote:
“I used to love this amazing building and then Trump moved in and turned it into a total shithole! Bigly! Projecting the owner's amazingly thought out and eloquent quotes on the front is just brilliant though. Watch out for pussy grabbers in the hallway.”
Others, like Lindsay M. from Arlington, Virgina, just wrote, “What a sh*t hole” five times and left a one-star rating.
Michael W. of Lincoln, New England thinks everything about the Trump International Hotel in Washinton, D.C is sh-t.
