"The motel was in a good location if you want to spend time at the beach or the VA hospital. Good rates. The room was OK, but the stairwell smelled like urine and was dirty. The bathroom fixtures were clean but worn, and the unfinished wood around the window looked hastily installed. The door was dirty, and there was a hole in the curtain. We did have a small fridge and microwave. There was a lot of beach traffic. Friendly staff, but there were no real amenities. The premises were shoddy, and I didn't really feel safe after dark.2020-06-20"

"Close to USCF. The motel was nicely updated, and the room was nice and clean. Our room with 2 queen beds was small but comfortable. No microwave, though. Easy check-in and checkout. The staff was helpful and responded immediately if we needed something. I'd stay here again.2021-03-21"

"What a fabulous stay; everything was perfect. The hotel was nicely restored with attention to detail. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the Presidio grounds were great. This was the best stay we've ever had. Excellent food and wait staff at the Presidio Social Club. Save enough time to explore this great national park, and enjoy the book in the room about its history.2016-01-15"

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.
