"The room was the size of a postage stamp. We put the sign out indicating we wanted our room clean, but it wasn't done. The hotel clerk said we were supposed to inform them directly, but there'd been no communication about that at check-in. Stay elsewhere.2023-01-24"

"We stayed at this hotel for our anniversary, so the staff gave us a room upgrade. Unfortunately, we heard a loud generator noise, and the heater rattled. The front desk clerk said they'd move our bags to another room while we were out, but when we returned the new clerk didn't know anything about it. We finally got a quiet room on the 3rd try and gave us a complimentary breakfast for our trouble. Our quiet room did get noisy at 8 AM due to construction on floors above ours.2017-10-13"

"The bed in my hotel room was the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept on. No fridge or microwave.2022-01-28"
"Reasonably priced and close to Rogers Place and bars on Jasper Avenue. The hotel wasn't what I expected, though it was clean and the staff was friendly. The lobby was nice and updated, but the room was outdated and worn. The beds and pillows weren't comfortable. The shower in the 1st room smelled like sulfur or sewage; the front desk clerk was apologetic and moved us to a different room. The hair dryer caused a short circuit. The $15 parking fee was annoying.2017-08-02"

"The hotel was pet-friendly and had an area for dogs and an area for smokers. Beautiful suite with a king-sized bed and whirlpool tub. The kids had a private room with bunk beds. There was a mall across the street, and a liquor store on the property. We weren't told about the parking area in back, and the parking lot in front was busy because of other businesses there. This was one of my family's best hotel stays.2016-10-12"
"Close to amenities and fairly priced. I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, and it was quiet. But the room was always either too hot or too cold. The gym was small and didn't have much equipment. I'll probably stay elsewhere in the future.2015-05-05"

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.
