Doesn't surprise me at all. The way TA rates hotels has always been kind of "interesting." If there are 300 ratings, all 3 stars, the hotel can be rated as 4 stars. WTF is up with that? When queried why, their reply was "we take several factors into account" (IIRC). Huh?

They're called "Bribes"

If you're going to this site, you can get some good info from trusted reviewers. On the left side it gives you info on the writer such as # of reviews and "ranking". Only listen to guys with high ratings and you'll be fine using the info and reviews on TA.
