"I have trouble with stairs and requested a room on the 1st floor, but arrived to find we had to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the lobby, then took an elevator to the 1st floor. The beds were comfortable, but we were subjected to loud music from the live band at the downstairs bar. When I called to complain about the noise, the clerk told me it was to be expected at a downtown hotel.2017-06-14"

"Nice hotel, but since it was already expensive, it was annoying to have to pay for Internet access. Ideally located for our Alaskan cruise.2016-05-22"
"Expensive but wonderful hotel. I felt the price was worth it. Everything was so convenient. Short walk from the Canada Line to the hotel. Having a room on the dock side allowed us to watch our cruise ship arrive in the morning. The morning we checked out, we left our luggage with the bell staff. The next time we saw it was in our stateroom on board our cruise ship. We'll stay again.2015-06-28"

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.
