"The hotel clerk directed me to an elevator that was out of order, and I was carrying a heavy ice chest and running late. Another employee then directed me to another elevator.2019-11-04"
"Check-in didn't go smoothly, and we didn't get a room with a handicap shower, which was necessary for my elderly father-in-law. The hotel clerk seemed annoyed that we asked for different rooms and ended up giving us two ground floor rooms in separate buildings. When my father-in-law's insulin monitor sounded late at night, I had to run out in my pajamas to his building. I left a Do Not Disturb sign on the door while I was sleeping, and when I went to breakfast at 8 AM, there was a note on the door that my room wouldn't be serviced. The AC was noisy and didn't work well, and the hallways were intolerably hot. The microwaves in both our rooms burned our popcorn. Someone broke into our van in the hotel parking lot the 2nd night. When we reported it to the front desk clerks, they were apathetic and said there were no security cameras in the lot.2019-09-07"

"Nothing is perfect, but this hotel came close. The room was large and clean, and had a full-sized fridge, stovetop, microwave, iron and ironing board, plenty of cabinets, and a decent flat-screen TV. There was a list in the kitchen of items we could request with a call to the front desk. Immediately after calling for a coffee pot, I got one. There was a laundry room down the hall that felt like a lounge. I can't imagine getting more for your money than you get here.2016-04-13"

"Bad experience. Large hotel; I didn't get a 1st floor room as requested, and there was no elevator. My room smelled like smoke; I turned on the AC to air it out, and the whole faceplate fell off. The headboard was in bad shape. One lamp didn't work, and another was missing a lightbulb. The table was dirty. Other than that, everything was just great.2016-03-03"

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.
