"The hotel was mostly good, but the front desk clerks were rude on the phone. One said the room type I wanted wasn't available, but I went online and saw that it was, and then he admitted I was right. We never got the towels and bedsheets for the sofa bed that we requested. We finally gave up on the clerk and a kind housekeeper gave us the items.2023-05-25"

"Nice-sized room with great amenities. The bed was comfortable, and I liked the division between the bedroom and living area to watch TV. The only drawback was a large stain in the bathtub. The motel was located behind a small shopping center, so the parking area was somewhat small.2021-12-21"

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.
