"Great place to stay. The location was pretty central. The hotel was clean and modern, and the staff was welcoming. The big new TV didn't seem to have closed captioning. The front desk clerks were friendly, professional, and compassionate about my profound hearing loss. It was greatly appreciated.2021-06-24"

"The room was large and well-appointed, but most of the TV channels just showed static. I called the front desk, and the hotel clerk said their cable system only had select channels. 5 minutes later, a worker came to the room and fixed the TV problem. But minutes after he left, the problem resumed, and I found that the cable was loose. I called the front desk again and demanded another TV, but was told there weren't any extras, so I asked for a room change. The 2nd room was half the size of the 1st room. The amenities were unavailable because of Covid.2020-07-31"

"Convenient location and good rates. The motel was clean and had a welcoming feel. The beds were comfortable. Friendly, helpful personnel; I spoke to one clerk on the phone a week before my stay, and he remembered our conversation. I was impressed. Nice complimentary breakfast. We'd stay again.2017-03-28"
"The hotel room had been remodeled, the beds were comfortable, and the staff was nice. However, room wasn't clean. The toilet was dirty when we arrived, and there were styrofoam balls on the floor. There was cheese in the fridge, and the coffee and spoon packages were open. The floor hadn't been swept, and the bottom of the sliding door was filled with dirty and grime. Breakfast wasn't being served because of Covid-19, but there was no discount. There were screws in the parking lot, so I had to be careful every time we left. The other guests made me uncomfortable. Stay somewhere else.2020-05-15"

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.
