"The motel didn't provide daily housekeeping service; all we got was clean towels.2020-11-04"
"The motel was well-maintained and better than I expected. The room was clean and spacious and had newer, quality furniture. Good climate control on a hot day. The power outlets were easy to access. The hair dryer was hidden in a cloth bag hung in the closet. The hot breakfast was decent but not generous, and guests had to wait for items to be replenished. Good coffee. I'd stay here again. Limited food options in town; I recommend The Grill.2019-06-28"

"This motel was a surprise gem. It was clean, newly appointed, and had lovely views. Full breakfast provided, but healthier options would've been nice. Definitely stay here.2017-11-22"
"This newly renovated hotel was a nice surprise. We were able to park our boat trailer in the back parking lot in the past, but this time there was no room and we had to park across the highway. Nice place to stay, but arrive early if you have a trailer.2017-08-20"

"Hands down the best accessible hotel room we've ever been in, and we travel a lot. It was large and open so we could get around with a mobility scooter without bumping into things. There was a clothes rack to hang jackets, and space for toiletries in the bathroom. Definitely a comfortable place to stay.2016-03-30"
"The hotel was clean and fairly new. Breakfast left a lot to be desired, but the cook was nice enough to make us some bacon. This was one of the few pet-friendly hotels that didn't have a problem with our two parrots.2016-02-26"

"The motel room was clean and spacious, and the desk area was just right. The only problem was that the showerhead was too low for a tall person. The breakfast area opened early and was quite nice. I was pleasantly surprised and would stay here again.2016-03-07"
"Fantastic motel with well-manicured grounds and nice, clean rooms. Located on the outskirts of town, so it was quiet and peaceful. The staff was friendly. Short walk to a coffee shop and The Cinema, a great pizza restaurant. We loved it.2015-06-03"
"The hotel was fine in general, but the AC cycling was really annoying and made it hard to sleep.2015-12-30"
"The hotel was mostly fine, but the fitness room wasn't cleaned for a few days, the carpet was dirty, and there were no towels. There was no hot water for tea in the lobby except at breakfast, and the coffee pot was sometimes empty. No silverware, either.2015-12-29"
"I've stayed at this hotel 3 times, and it's fine. The beds were comfortable, and there was a nice variety of pillows. Good towels, and the hand towel and washcloth were set out to look like a shirt and tie. The bathroom floor could've been cleaner, and there were lipstick marks on the coffee mugs. The checkout clerk was pleasant, but didn't thank us for staying.2016-03-21"
"Safe motel with great customer service. The dining area was clean. I'd stay here again.2015-09-28"
"Well-worn hotel in need of updating. No AC in the room; just had a rickety fan. The sink didn't drain well, and a visit from a maintenance worker didn't fix the problem. Not enough towels provided despite asking for more. The key card had to be reprogrammed every day.2015-09-11"
"Located right in town. Good motel for a reasonable price. The room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. OK breakfast, but the eating area was small.2016-11-12"

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.
