Our 2nd night, we stayed in a room with a patio, which we enjoyed. The hotel clerks were so warm. Pretty grounds and pool, and orange trees abundant with fruit. Beautiful lobby bar, and they still had those great chocolate chip cookies. The restaurant was closed because of Covid.2021-03-11"
"Not a pleasant experience. The wallpaper in our room was peeling. The bathroom was old and had rust and mold everywhere. The sink leaked and didn't drain well, and the stopper kept coming out.

The complimentary breakfast at the on-site restaurant wasn't anything to write home about, but the ambiance and service made up for the lackluster food. I highly recommend staying here.2017-08-17"

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.
