"The motel room was quiet, but it was extremely small and dirty in areas. It smelled like stale smoke. The fridge, microwave, bathtub, toilet, and sink were clean, but the walls were dirty and desperately needed fresh paint. Limited TV channels, and the picture was blurry. I asked for help with the TV, but no one ever came. The front desk clerk was nice and friendly. We were grateful for the off-street parking. We won't stay here again and don't recommend it.2018-09-06"
"Good location. The motel room was clean and quiet, and had quality linens. The staff was friendly. Decent continental breakfast. I appreciated the housekeepers' attention to detail during Covid. Parking was somewhat limited.2021-05-15"
"The motel was noisy and dark because of the wooden ceiling, but the room was clean and the staff was nice. Walk to everything. If you just need a place to sleep, this is a good place. I'd stay again.2017-10-18"

"Convenient to the cruise terminal and Fisherman's Wharf. Good value. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Nice bed and pillows. The hotel staff was friendly, and the breakfast buffet was good. We'd stay here again.2018-12-05"

"The location near the wharf couldn't have been better. We loved the hotel decor and were able to store our luggage before check-in with no problem. The courtyard was inviting, with large fire pits and lounging areas. 2018-11-18"
"The room was OK, but the bed felt like sleeping on a board. We're older and avoid stairs, but our room location required walking down stairs to catch the elevator. The restaurant was dull, and the menu was limited. The drinks were overpriced, and the ambiance was lacking. No valet parking, and the parking fee was outrageous. Don't stay at this hotel.2018-09-07"

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.
