"We had a horrible experience at this hotel. The 2nd floor was extremely hot, and the elevator sounded like it was about to break. There were sketchy people in the parking lot. We woke up to what sounded like furniture being thrown in the room upstairs, followed by running, screaming, and crying. The front desk clerk said the manager would call me, but that never happened and the family upstairs was allowed to stay. At that point, I decided to leave. Stay somewhere else.2018-06-03"

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.
