The ORA score is an aggregate compilation of a property’s ratings across 20+ review sites and ILSs. Each month, J Turner Research monitors the online ratings of more than 75,000 properties nationwide. Using a statistical model, a single score based on a scale of 0 to 100 is assigned to each property. This score serves as a benchmark to compare and contrast a company’s individual properties and portfolios nationally, regionally, and against the competition.
