"Great motel for the price. It was just fine for an overnight stay.2019-09-23"
"The hallway smelled like smoke, and I heard slamming doors throughout the night. There was a gap at the bottom of my room door, so I didn't get much sleep. There was a Starbucks and a lounge next door. Don't bring a pet to this motel, and don't expect to sleep.2016-04-01"
"The motel was clean and comfortable, and the staff was accommodating. We had an early flight, and there was no food available for breakfast at that time. Go for it.2022-07-18"
"I was disappointed that the hotel didn't provide daily housekeeping. Bring your own towels.2022-01-17"

"Close to MCRD. The motel was aging but clean.2021-06-22"

"Good experience. The hotel was close to the airport and downtown, and was easy to find. The room was nice and clean. The staff was friendly and pre-checked us in and stored our luggage after we got off the cruise ship. Nice walks in the area. I didn't like the grab and go breakfast.2022-01-18"
"Nice hotel. The room was big and well-decorated. The airport shuttle didn't run in the afternoon and evening, and the taxi reimbursement was less than my taxi trip cost.2022-03-19"

"An average low-cost hotel. Everything was in working order, but I had to request room cleaning, fresh towels, and more. Mediocre continental breakfast. 2021-10-02"
"The motel and surroundings were dirty and gave a bad first impression. Police and an ambulance were there when I arrived, so my check-in was delayed. When I heard a strange noise, I looked out and saw coroners removing a deceased person in a body bag. Find a better place to stay.2021-08-27"
"The motel was just 3 blocks from the Valley View Casino. The staff was informative about surrounding restaurants and attractions.2018-04-19"

"Just one block from Valley View Casino. Everything looked new and clean. The motel was comfortable and silent at night, and the employees were kind. Breakfast was good enough.2015-11-01"
"We were completely dissatisfied with our stay. The hotel was undergoing renovations, and the lobby was closed and covered with a tarp. We had to wait an hour to check in, and there was only 1 desk clerk on duty.2020-03-12"
"The lobby was closed due to construction, so no public restroom was available. The check-in line was long and slow. Wait to stay at this hotel until renovations are done.2020-03-10"

"Convenient to Valley View. The carpet in my hotel room was dirty. Good service. I wouldn't stay here again.2017-07-28"
"Walk to Valley View Casino Center. The hotel was old and in need of some upgrading, but it was clean and the front desk clerks were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was closed; we were given a 10% voucher for a nearby restaurant.2017-07-26"
"About a 45-minute walk from downtown, and there was nothing in the area. My king marina view room was amazing. However, I asked for a room change the 2nd night because of a crying baby in the room next door and ended up in a room above the front door of the hotel facing the street. Wonderful hotel clerks and manager.2022-03-11"
"The hotel was clean and quiet, and the staff was friendly.2021-12-06"

"The hotel staff was helpful. Great food.2016-09-13"

"The hotel was nice and clean. Breakfast wasn't free.2018-08-22"

"I wasn't informed that the hotel was under renovation, and renovation is an understatement. The entire property was a maze, and there was clutter everywhere. Stay elsewhere.2015-11-12"
"Construction noise woke us up in the morning. The phone had no dial tone, and the toilet backed up. We did get a significant discount because of the problems, though. This hotel should be a nice place to stay once construction is complete.2015-11-10"

"Everything about this hotel was excellent. It's a pleasant place to stay.2019-08-19"
"A fantastic place to stay. The hotel had beautiful views and was convenient to attractions. Ask for a room in the Marina tower, which is nicer than the Bay tower. Both have great views, though.2019-06-19"

"Prime location across from the harbor, restaurants, and fishing boats. Not worth the price, though. The hotel room wasn't ready on time, and the lobby was chaotic at check-in time. The AC vent in the ceiling of our room dripped water onto the carpet. The bed was uncomfortable, and there was a gap at the bottom of the door that let in light and noise. No AC in the hallways and elevators, so they smelled musty. Parking was free. Rooms with 2 queen beds seemed to have the best views.2016-08-03"

"The TV in our room didn't work; a young man came and said it needed a new cord, but he couldn't find one. The hallway carpet was worn and stained. We went to the restaurant and were told it would take almost an hour just to get a snack. The person who delivered our room service order wasn't pleasant and practically grabbed the bill out of my hand after I signed it. Don't stay at this hotel.2017-08-05"
"I had a relaxing, perfect stay at this hotel. Enjoy walking around the marina, the local fare, and the chill environment.2016-04-08"

"The room was spacious, and breakfast was good. The staff wasn't consistently customer service-oriented, though. We tried calling for hours to inform the staff we'd be arriving late, but we were never able to get through. When we arrived, the hotel clerk said she'd used the phone and it worked fine. The heating and cooling unit was so loud it interrupted our sleep. Never got our requested wake-up call. Even though the room rates weren't cheap, we also had to pay for parking. We won't return.2018-12-05"
"I enjoyed staying at this hotel.2018-08-09"

"An outstanding hotel. Stay here.2019-01-30"
"We didn't want housekeeping our 1st morning, but our room was never serviced and we never got fresh towels; I had to find a housekeeper and request some. Breakfast wasn't that good. We were disappointed.2018-03-05"

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.
