"The hotel and room were squeaky clean, and I had everything I needed. The staff was welcoming, professional, and made me feel at home. The breakfast buffet was fresh and delicious. Parking was an issue at local restaurants, but there were plenty of options. Lovely places to walk and visit like Norwottuck Rail Trail, Skinner State Park, and Quabbin reservoir. We loved staying here.2019-11-05"
"The hotel was plain but clean, and our room was just big enough for 3 adults. No frills. The beds were soft, and there was a fridge and modern lamp. There were some footstools shoved under the desk. Only one desk chair for seating. Plenty of electrical outlets with USB ports. The staff was pleasant and quick, and the hot breakfast was adequate. There was a "treat corner" with soda, wine, and beer. Nothing fancy, but the price was fair.2019-01-21"

"Adequate hotel, but in need of updating. The room was large and clean, but it was a bit old and shabby, and it smelled somewhat musty. Good housekeeping. The front desk clerk called to see if we were satisfied; I mentioned that the lamp needed a new lightbulb, but we never got one. The workout area was small.2016-05-09"

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.
