"I was happy with the room and the hotel staff.2017-03-07"
"No stationery in the room, so I had to look up the hotel address on the Internet. The room service tray had to be set up on the bed, and not enough utensils were provided. The front desk clerk handled all calls, including room service, so expect a wait if it's busy. The staff was responsive and friendly, and the bartenders were superb. Good breakfast and dinner. 2017-02-20"

"This is the best place to stay if you're going to the BJCC, but it's not cheap. Nice hotel with wonderful employees and good food. Parking, however, was a mess. There was a shared garage with the convention center, and both self-parking and valet parking were on the 5th and 6th floors; it was a long walk back to the hotel. No vending machines, just ice. Good restaurants at the adjacent "Uptown" development.2018-01-21"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
