"The motel was close to restaurants. The room was spacious, comfortable, and affordable. There were some scuff marks on the walls, and the furniture was worn, but I'd stay here again. The employees were helpful, friendly, and responded to our requests in the timely manner.2020-10-01"

"A clean, excellent motel with cordial employees. A 2nd ice machine would've been nice. Check out Sammy's next door and the Village Grill up the street. There was a gas station right around the corner.2019-10-02"

"My hotel room was OK. I left a note for the housekeeper with a tip, asking for regular coffee, but didn't get any. Heard kids running and banging above my room. There were no paper towels in the public restroom, and the toilet didn't flush. Get a room on the top floor and away from the freeway.2015-03-31"
"Good value and centrally located. Our 1st room smelled so strongly of cleaning products that we asked for a room change. The staff was accommodating, and the 2nd room was large and clean. Decent WiFi and comfortable bed. Breakfast was good. Parking was mostly on the sides of the building, so we had to walk around to the front entrance.2019-03-18"
"The neighborhood wasn't that safe. Cheap motel, but it had bugs and was short-staffed. Not enough towels provided. Poor customer service.2015-08-22"
"The room had an odor. The bedding was stained, and the carpet needed vacuuming. The bathroom was dirty and had dust and mildew. The hallways were filled with trash. I asked for a room change, but the motel clerk said she was working alone and couldn't accommodate my request.2015-06-23"
"The room was nice, clean, and spacious. It was quiet and cozy, and I loved the whirlpool. Bring refreshments to keep in the fridge. I went across from the motel to get drinks, and it was a little scary after dark.2021-09-10"
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.
