"Great value and experience. The hotel room was small but cozy, and it was quiet at night even though it was located by a highway. The front desk clerks were super nice and accommodated requests promptly. Our dog was nicely welcomed, and there was a grassy area in back.2016-04-20"
"Less than two miles from Marquee Theatre. Hotel seemed overpriced. The decor was modern, but the furniture wasn't the most luxurious. Nice staff. Good to have access to a pool, but the exterior wasn't well-kept. The tables were crusted with dirt, and there were a lot of cobwebs. The music playing outside was pretty bad. But overall, I enjoyed my stay.2015-04-26"

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.
