"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"

"Easy to access, but a sign at the entrance would help. Everything was clean and orderly. The chain lock on the room door was broken; the hotel clerk offered to have it fixed, but I declined since we wanted to nap. The bed was comfortable.2018-01-15"
"A great, inexpensive motel. The room was quaint and clean.2017-01-25"
"Reasonably priced. Nice, clean room. The hotel clerk was helpful and engaging and spent a considerable amount of time helping me choose a good restaurant. The night staff was less than helpful. Entry to the lobby at night required a key card, and the staff ignored me as I stood in the pouring rain trying to get the door open.2018-11-27"
"Nice decor inside and out. The hotel room was quiet, and the staff was helpful. Good breakfast.2016-04-09"
"The character of this historic hotel was charming, but be prepared for some quaint inconveniences. The room decor and furniture could've been better, but the bathroom was very nice. I was given the wrong key at check-in, so I had to lug all my belongings back to the front desk to get the right key. The fire alarm went off in the middle of the night, and it took quite a while to get back to sleep. Good continental breakfast in the dining room. Parking was free but across the street.2015-09-30"
"Easy walk to restaurants and stores. The hotel room was nicely decorated, and had all the amenities I expected. The AC worked well. The staff was welcoming and efficient, and parking was convenient and free. We'll return.2015-07-24"
"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"

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.
