"We rang the bell at the front desk for 5 minutes before the hotel clerk appeared. I requested a room on an upper floor so I didn't have to listen to people walking around overhead, but was given a 2nd floor room and had to listen to the noise. The room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. OK breakfast, but items ran out and there was no attendant to replace them or clean the tables. I don't recommend staying here.2017-10-21"

"The motel was in an industrial area and close to the freeway, so there was a lot of traffic noise. However, the grounds and interior were nice, and I felt safe and comfortable. My room was clean and nicely appointed with a fridge, microwave, and hair dryer. The bed was comfortable. No area information or TV channel guide provided. Nice lobby, and the front desk was always manned. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast included make-your-own waffles. I'd stay here again.2017-01-13"

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.
