Add, edit or delete Google Maps reviews and ratings

On Google Maps, you can write reviews for places that you visit. You can also leave info or post photo or video updates about a place, like if it’s quiet and romantic or if it’s under renovation.

Important: To keep policy violators off Google Maps, we moderate user reviews and related content. Any violations that we find are subject for review and removal.
Learn more about Google Maps' user-generated content policy and learn more about prohibited and restricted content and behaviours.

Tip: Your reviews and opinions are voluntary. We don’t pay reviewers to add reviews to Google Maps.

About public info

Add a rating or review

To help you share an experience, or help others choose or make a better decision, you can add ratings or reviews.

Before you add a rating or review, make sure that you follow the content policy. Reviews and ratings may be removed from the page, and in most cases, they are removed for policy violations like spam or inappropriate content.

We don't reinstate reviews that were removed for policy violations. These removal measures help to make sure that reviews on Google properties are relevant, helpful and trustworthy. Learn about prohibited and restricted content for reviews.
