How to remove reviews from your Business Profile on Google

To ask Google to remove or delete an inappropriate review from your Business Profile, report the review. Google can remove reviews that violate Google's policies.

Important: Before you ask to remove or delete a review, read our reviews policy.

Understand which reviews to report for removal

  • Report only reviews that violate Google policies. Learn more about Google's content policies.

  • Don't report a review just because you disagree with it or don't like it.

    • Google doesn't get involved when businesses and customers disagree about facts.

    • There's no reliable way to tell who's right about a particular customer experience.

  • You can't report third-party hotel reviews. To flag an inappropriate third-party review, contact the third-party provider directly. To go to the third-party website, click the reviewer's name. Soon after the provider removes or changes the review on their website, the update will show on your Business Profile.

Tip: Be patient. It can take several days to assess a review.

Understand reviews removed by spam detection

Google uses automated spam detection measures to remove reviews that are probably spam. These measures help improve people's experiences on Google and ensure the reviews they see are authentic, relevant, and useful. Some legitimate reviews may be inadvertently removed.
