"The hotel was clean, and the employees were friendly. Nice, tasty hot breakfast. We asked for a late checkout, and the check-in clerk said it shouldn't be a problem. In the morning, we were told we wouldn't be able to check out late after all, which caused considerable problems for us. Because of this, we wouldn't stay here again.2018-01-19"

"The Paramount was just down the street. The hotel was cramped and like a maze. The beds weren't great, and the amenities were out of the 1970s. The attached restaurant was pricey. Nothing to note otherwise.2018-01-24"
"Easy access to Highway 101 and a short walk to just about everything. Clean, well-maintained room, and the temperature was easy to adjust. The hotel was quiet at night, and the room had high-end cable TV with movies and free wireless Internet. The entire hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant next door was convenient and had decent food. Be aware that Hollywood is expensive and there are quite a few homeless people in the area.2016-10-13"

"The motel was undergoing much-needed renovations. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, but the grounds weren't that nice and the construction noise was loud. Friendly, helpful personnel. Great place to crash, but not a place to hang out during the day.2018-04-15"

"Easy to access from the freeway. The hotel was clean and quiet. I had a basic room with minimal extras. Easy check-in, friendly staff, and adequate information was provided. Limited continental breakfast. I did smell marijuana in the hall one day. The parking lot didn't leave much room to maneuver when it was full, and customers of the bar next door gathered in the hotel parking lot. I expected more for the price.2018-06-12"
"The hotel room was disgusting. The curtains were two different sizes, and the windowsills were dirty. The bedsheet was stained. There was some sort of goo running down the bathroom door. I told the front desk clerk, but nothing was done about the problems. The housekeeper only left 1 towel. The manager was nice and apologetic, and gave me a bit of a refund. The pool was tiny. I wouldn't recommend staying here.2019-04-20"

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.
