"The motel was clean, but don't expect much. I paid extra for a divided room with a sitting area, but the divider was just a 3-foot glass block wall and there was no overhead light. No tissue provided, and minimal towels. The hair dryer didn't work.2016-05-03"

"The room initially looked clean, but the bathtub was gross, and the fixtures were old. If you arrive after 7 PM, only one entrance was open, and the front desk clerk will head-count your party. The staff was unprofessional and rude. Don't stay at this motel.2015-07-19"

"Non-smoking room smelled terrible, so I asked for a different room. Front desk clerk gave me a new room and a key that didn't work. When I returned for a key that worked, she was rude and said maybe it wasn't the right place for me. The other clerk was apologetic. 2nd room also smelled like smoke. I'll never stay at this hotel again.2015-01-31"
"My motel room looked out on the parking lot, so I had to close the drapes to get dressed. The linens were old and thin, and there was no blanket on the bed. The bathroom was small, and there was no dressing area. Average place with nothing to draw me back.2016-09-20"

"Don't have high expectations if you stay at this hotel. Nice view of the golf course from our front room, but the carpet was dirty, and there was no water for the coffee. There was hair on the toilet seat. We only got 1 key card for 2 people. The front desk clerk wasn't that friendly and didn't tell us where the vending or ice machines were. Close to the VA.2021-02-14"
"Great motel stay. The room was nice and modern. There was a cockroach in the shower, but we were given a discount on the shuttle for the inconvenience. The staff was friendly, and the continental breakfast was good. You won't be sorry if you stay here.2016-04-24"
"One of our rooms was remodeled and looked nice. The other room had poor water pressure in the shower, a broken outlet at the sink, and the bathroom fan didn't work. The shower tiles really needed cleaning. The employees were friendly and helpful. Good breakfast and convenient shuttle service to the convention center. Nice hotel all in all.2016-03-05"
"We were uncomfortable with the neighborhood at first, but it turned out to be convenient, quiet, and safe. The motel room was attractive, and the bed was clean and comfortable. I slept like a baby.2018-06-24"
"Nice experience. Close to Cal State Long Beach. The hotel was clean and secure. I requested a quiet room on an upper floor, and that's what I got. The AC worked well, and there was plenty of hot water for showers. Check-in was easy, and the motel clerk was efficient, friendly, and provided a list of local restaurants. Adequate breakfast with excellent coffee. Walk to Loaded Cafe for excellent burgers; you'll have to drive if you want to dine at more upscale restaurants.2018-06-12"

"Very accessible to the parks. The motel wasn't luxurious, but it was clean and adequate for our needs. Basic continental breakfast; we ended going to a fast-food restaurant instead. No frills, but we were satisfied.2016-03-14"
"The hotel room wasn't clean and had a musty smell. We asked for housekeeping to come to the room, but the manager said they weren't available and we could leave and get a refund. He finally offered us another room, but it smelled like urine so we stayed in the 1st room and cleaned it ourselves. The next day it was thoroughly cleaned by housekeepers. OK room for the rate.2019-09-04"

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.
