"Conveniently located near Highway 25. Located on a long, paved path facing the river. A generally comfortable hotel with helpful employees. A broken iron was replaced immediately by a brand new one. The showerhead leaked, and the shower curtains were too short. Nice patio in back, but the pool needed updating. Basic breakfast with hot selections. Ask for a quieter room in the back facing the river. 2015-07-01"

"Hotel needed maintenance. Non-smoking room smelled like smoke. The ceiling had water damage that was painted over, and the carpet was well past its replacement date. The TV was blurry, and some channels had no sound. The toilet was clogged. We were moved to another room. It was slightly better, but the TV and carpet were also in bad shape, and the lock wasn't secure. The heater blew debris on the bed when I turned it on. Stay somewhere else.2015-03-12"

"The hotel was close to the highway, shops, restaurants, and the Air Force Academy. The AC in my room worked well and was quiet. I liked the ceiling fan, too. The carpet in the room and hallway was stained. There was a hole in the bedsheets, the pillows were lumpy, and the towels felt like sandpaper. The sink was stained; I asked for it to be cleaned, but it didn't happen. The elevator was dirty, and the snack machine was mostly empty. I appreciated the 20% discount at Denny's.2015-09-09"

"The rates were low. I had to navigate 3 police cars at the hotel entrance when I arrived. Looked clean, but the room and bed smelled like body odor. The bedsheets were scratchy, and the slippery bedspread kept falling off the bed. Slow Internet connection. The kitchenette wasn't stocked, so I had to ask for every little thing I needed. No toilet paper or trash can in the bathroom, so I had to ask for those, too. I didn't feel safe and didn't enjoy my stay.2017-04-08"
"The hotel was fairly comfortable and clean, though I saw a few spiders and ants. Ask for a room on the top floor and away from exit doors so you don't have to listen to people walking around and going in and out all the time. Good experience.2015-08-30"

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.
