How Do We Order Hotels Below?

On place pages like this, we order hotels from lowest cost to highest – except we list low-rated hotels at the bottom of the page.

Most of our competitors order these same hotels in other ways that make them more money.
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.
