"The hotel was noisy, and the hallways were dirty. We had to have our key card re-set 5 times. The room smelled like smoke. We only got 2 towels for 4 people, and extra towels cost $20 each. The staff was arguing in public, and there was a violent show on the TV in the lobby. The employees were nice, but our overall experience was bad. Don't stay here.2016-07-19"
"Good location. The motel room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and I got a good night's sleep. The staff was available for my early-morning departure.2019-10-28"
"The AC in our room had a leak; we called the front desk, and they told us to just put a bucket under the dripping water. In the morning, we asked to have maintenance fix the problem, but no one did. Housekeeping didn't clean our room, either. We informed the front desk, but our room wasn't serviced and no one brought fresh towels. Don't stay here.2016-03-21"
"The motel room was clean, but the mattress was a little too soft for us. The employees were helpful with directions. Good breakfast selections, especially the sausage gravy. We missed the driveway entrance, so put the address in your GPS.2015-07-27"

"The hotel was fine, and the food was good. The shuttle only ran within a 5-mile radius and we wanted to go 6 miles away; a hotel employee not only drove us to our intended destination, but waited 2 hours past his time off and wouldn't accept a tip. He made the day.2016-06-18"

"Located on a gated lot down a tree-lined street. The area felt rural and quiet. The hotel was clean and comfortable. There were beverage carts serving lemon water. Nice, tiled, indoor whirlpool, and it was large. The pool was small and not that deep. The hot breakfast was truly impressive. Take advantage of the bowling alley next door. We had a wonderful stay.2015-07-27"
"Great value. The hotel room was beautiful, comfortable, and spacious. Don't stay on the 4th floor, though; heating and cooling equipment on the roof runs all night, making a dull roar that woke me up.2018-07-31"
"The hotel was clean. We requested a quiet room, but were given a handicap room next to the elevators. It was so noisy that we asked for a room change. The staff provided ear plugs since we could hear conversations from the room next door. Pets stayed for free, which was a plus. Ask for a room away from the freeway and the elevator.2016-03-29"

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.
