"Nice resort for the most part. The bathroom door didn't lock, and we had to search for working ice machines. Be aware of the parking and resort fees.2021-08-19"
"The hotel was nothing like what I expected. The room was small and didn't have a Keurig coffee machine. The wall AC in the vanity area froze the room, and I couldn't open the microwave unless I lifted it to avoid hitting the shelf lip.2016-07-25"

"An average low-cost hotel. Everything was in working order, but I had to request room cleaning, fresh towels, and more. Mediocre continental breakfast. 2021-10-02"
"The motel and surroundings were dirty and gave a bad first impression. Police and an ambulance were there when I arrived, so my check-in was delayed. When I heard a strange noise, I looked out and saw coroners removing a deceased person in a body bag. Find a better place to stay.2021-08-27"

"I wasn't informed that the hotel was under renovation, and renovation is an understatement. The entire property was a maze, and there was clutter everywhere. Stay elsewhere.2015-11-12"
"Construction noise woke us up in the morning. The phone had no dial tone, and the toilet backed up. We did get a significant discount because of the problems, though. This hotel should be a nice place to stay once construction is complete.2015-11-10"

"Great motel for the price. It was just fine for an overnight stay.2019-09-23"
"The hallway smelled like smoke, and I heard slamming doors throughout the night. There was a gap at the bottom of my room door, so I didn't get much sleep. There was a Starbucks and a lounge next door. Don't bring a pet to this motel, and don't expect to sleep.2016-04-01"

"The motel room was clean, but the AC didn't work properly.2017-06-22"
"An absolutely terrible motel. The room was so small I could barely walk around the bed. The fridge and microwave were on the floor, and there was garbage in them. The bathtub floor had two broken sections, so I was afraid I'd fall through it. The walls were in bad shape. Transients hung out at the room doors, and the staff seemed to think this was all normal. This stay ruined our trip. Don't stay here.2016-08-02"

"Prime location across from the harbor, restaurants, and fishing boats. Not worth the price, though. The hotel room wasn't ready on time, and the lobby was chaotic at check-in time. The AC vent in the ceiling of our room dripped water onto the carpet. The bed was uncomfortable, and there was a gap at the bottom of the door that let in light and noise. No AC in the hallways and elevators, so they smelled musty. Parking was free. Rooms with 2 queen beds seemed to have the best views.2016-08-03"
"Room was comfortable. Hotel clerks were friendly and helpful. The airport shuttle didn't start running until 7 AM, so if you have an early flight, you might want to stay somewhere else.2015-03-17"

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.
