"The floor was clean, but there was mold in the corners of the room. No in-room coffee, and the AC was noisy. The remote control batteries were dead, so it was impossible to watch TV. No stopper in the sink. The front desk clerk was friendly. Spend a little more and find a better motel.2021-10-17"

"Horrible motel. The rooms were filthy; I had to change rooms twice. The wallpaper was peeling and the wall was stained, the blankets were thin, and there were only 2 pillows. The toilet hadn't been flushed, the pipes under the sink were filthy, and there was mildew in the shower. Don't stay here.2016-03-16"
"Reasonable rates. The motel employees were friendly and considerate, but the room smelled like smoke and dogs. The only exercise machine I wanted to use was broken. Breakfast was a disappointment and had no protein.2015-08-19"
"Nice area for walking, and stores and restaurants were nearby. Good value. The motel room was nice, bright, and large. Easy check-in. My only criticism is that the laminate floors were extremely dirty.2015-07-08"
"The room was comfortable. The hotel clerk was superb; she let me check in early. I didn't like the $200 deposit, but I enjoyed my stay and recommend it.2021-06-30"
"Good value and close to the cruise port. The hotel was fine; I had no complaints. The room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. The front desk clerk was pleasant. Go ahead and stay here.2019-02-17"
"Great experience. The hotel was clean and updated. Comfortable room with windows that opened for fresh air. The AC worked perfectly, and the bed was comfortable enough that I slept well most of the night. The employees were friendly and helpful, and the pool and whirlpool area was nice. Good breakfast with many choices.2017-08-14"
"The hotel needed better soundproofing; I heard loud traffic noise from the adjacent freeway. Don't stay here.2016-05-31"
"Nice room, but there was nothing to do while staying at the hotel. Excellent staff. Plan on taking a cab to entertainment.2016-01-18"
"The hotel entrance was dirty; there were french fries on the ground, and the walkway was stained. The hallways and elevator weren't as clean as they should have been, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The furniture was due to be replaced. Courteous staff, and the entrance was cleaned when we brought it to their attention.2016-10-04"
"The hotel was nothing special. The AC was noisy.2020-10-05"
"We got a top floor room as requested, but our room was next to the housekeeping supply room. We asked for a room change, and had to move to a lower floor. The toilet wouldn't flush, but I was able to fix it. I was watching TV when I heard a gurgling noise, and found that water was backing up in the bathtub. The maintenance man said the problem was fixed, but then it happened again. We gathered our belongings and moved to another room, where we had no problems. Our hotel stay was exhausting.2015-11-10"

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.
