"The hotel staff provided excellent service, from housekeeping to the valet. A gift shop attendant was the only employee who didn't smile or offer to assist me. Long wait for the elevator, especially if you're on a higher floor.2016-04-03"
"Convenient to the park. The room was smaller than I expected, but the view was beautiful. No TV remote control, and no soap in the bathroom. Easy check-in and friendly employees. It's crazy that self-parking was almost the same price as valet parking. Good stay overall.2015-09-30"
"The hotel room was disgusting. The curtains were two different sizes, and the windowsills were dirty. The bedsheet was stained. There was some sort of goo running down the bathroom door. I told the front desk clerk, but nothing was done about the problems. The housekeeper only left 1 towel. The manager was nice and apologetic, and gave me a bit of a refund. The pool was tiny. I wouldn't recommend staying here.2019-04-20"

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.
