"The room phone didn't work. The toilet constantly ran, and the seat was loose. I asked to have the issues fixed, but that didn't happen. The hotel staff was nice. Don't stay here.2021-07-01"
"The room was small, confined, and didn't smell clean. When we complained, we were upgraded to a nice room at no extra charge; this room type would have been out of our budget. The 1st room was reasonably priced, but you get what you pay for. Good breakfast.2019-04-19"

"Located away from the hustle and bustle. The hotel was older, but the room was clean. Our room had 2 queen beds and was a bit small. The atmosphere was laid back. Stay here.2020-06-29"
"The hotel room wasn't thoroughly cleaned. When I went to breakfast and told the attendant that we'd been given a complimentary breakfast, she said, "There are no free breakfasts here." When I explained that the front desk clerk approved it, she went to verify it but never apologized.2019-05-06"

"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"
"Good experience overall. The hotel was clean. The front desk clerk wasn't at the desk when we arrived; we waited a while but could hear staff in back talking. Located on the beach with access to the beach. I recommend staying here.2021-07-26"
"Carpet smelled musty. Everything else was good.2015-01-21"
"Nice, clean hotel room. It was a little pricey for a business traveler, but just a half hour from the beach. My window had sheer curtains but no drapes, and the parking lot light shined in my window; the room was so bright I could almost read a book. Ask for a room on the west side of the building.2019-06-26"

"Across the street from Tanger Mall. I was upgraded to a suite at no additional charge, and the room was clean. All the motel clerks were helpful and nice, and the hot breakfast was better than I expected. I'd stay here again.2016-11-27"
"I loved everything about this hotel. It was beautiful, and all the employees were helpful and friendly. The game room was closed, and the pool was closed for maintenance, so that was a disappointment. Definitely stay here.2021-05-14"

"This motel should be bulldozed. It had such a bad mold problem that I had a hard time breathing. The carpet was damp and moldy and turned my feet black. There was mold showing through the paint on the bathroom ceiling. Avoid this place like the plague.2019-09-14"
"It took 45 minutes to check in, and there were ants in our room and fire ants at the pool. Don't stay at this motel.2016-07-02"

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.
