"The door to our hotel room wouldn't shut properly, and the toilet overflowed. The staff was attentive, but didn't offer compensation for our having to change rooms.2021-04-16"
"The hotel room was small, and there was nowhere to put our luggage. There was a desk, but with all the coffee gear there, there was no space for working. The desk chair was so close to the bed that I couldn't pull it out. There was a small fridge. The room was always too warm or too cold, and the heater was loud. Breakfast was good. We wouldn't stay here again.2020-01-22"

"The hotel was comfortable, and breakfast was plentiful. I highly recommend staying here.2017-07-20"
"The TV in my hotel room didn't work. The bathtub leaked the entire time I was there. The staff sent a maintenance worker who fixed the TV but not the faucet. We were comped one night for the inconvenience.2017-03-28"
"The room was half-renovated. The TV didn't work, and the staff couldn't fix it. The elevators were noisy and needed to be replaced. The employees were nice. No on-site breakfast, just a voucher for a restaurant in the neighborhood. Don't stay at this hotel.2017-08-13"

"The water temperature in the shower kept fluctuating. We called the hotel clerk and were given another room; the room key was brought to us so we didn't have to return to the front desk.2016-02-20"
"Our room smelled like smoke, but we were given another room later at night. The hotel clerk wasn't welcoming or friendly. One elevator was broken, so wait times were long for the other one.2022-06-06"

"The hotel was dated and nasty. The lobby looked nice, but it was all downhill from there. The only positive was the friendly staff. We took the shuttle downtown, and called to be picked up at 9:45. At 11:15, we gave up and called a taxi. Find somewhere else to stay.2015-06-16"
"The small, square pillows were uncomfortable. Disappointed that I had to pay for breakfast at this hotel.2015-04-18"
"The entrance and the dining area were nice, but as soon as I got in the elevator, it was like a different hotel. The hallways had trash in them; the carpet was stained and needed vacuuming. The room carpet was so dirty I never took off my shoes. The deadbolt lock was broken, and there was a makeshift contraption in its place. Didn't get requested wake-up call. I went to five floors before I found a working ice machine. Front desk clerk didn't seem to care. But the breakfast buffet was good. Won't stay again.2015-03-18"
"Nice-looking hotel, but the staff was unprofessional. It took 20 minutes to check in. We won't be back.2016-01-04"
"Affordable hotel. Our room had a leaking toilet that flooded the floor a bit, so we had to change rooms. We went out, and the room was infested with ants by the time we returned. They were everywhere, even in the bed and fridge. We had to change rooms again, but the new room also had ants. We were finally moved to an ant-free room, but it smelled musty. By this time, it was 5 AM. We weren't charged for our stay, and the manager was apologetic, but I wouldn't stay again.2016-01-04"

"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"
"Good location. The motel staff was nice, but after we took a bath, water flowed into our room and soaked the floor and some of our belongings. The front desk clerk moved us to another room.2018-04-21"
"The rates were high, and the room wasn't ready when we arrived 90 minutes after check-in time. The room floor was littered with bottle caps and rubber bands, and the AC didn't cool the room. At least the bedsheets were clean. The shower was in terrible shape. Find another hotel.2021-09-26"

"Check-in was simple and fast, and all the hotel employees were exceptionally friendly and accommodating.

"The room was well-equipped for extended stays, though our non-smoking rooms smelled like smoke. The motel clerk was friendly, helpful, and professional. We didn't have a remote control for the TV, and he promptly brought us one. We couldn't get the shower to operate properly; water came out of the faucet, shower, and hand-held shower at the same time. Not enough parking.2019-05-04"

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.
