"There was no staff at the hotel from 6-10 PM. The lights in my room came on automatically 3 times between 1:15-3 AM until I could figure out how to get them to stay off. I used the phone in the lobby to check out, but it was just a recording with no helpful information. I slid my keys under the desk window and left. Don't stay here.2021-12-19"
"We're seniors and the motel had no elevator, but we were given a room on the 2nd floor. A nice housekeeper saw us struggling with our luggage and offered to help. The lamp shades weren't held in place and fell off if we accidentally bumped them. No on/off switches on the bedside lights, and no ashtrays in our smoking room. The only true bright spots were the kind housekeeper and evening clerk. Don't stay here.2020-09-04"
"Great hotel with friendly personnel. Try the IHOP in the parking lot.2020-06-16"
"The room and bathroom lighting were poor, and I couldn't operate the barn door for the bathroom; it was too heavy and had a sharp handle. The window shades were also difficult to use. We could smell food outside our room. Stay at another hotel.2019-10-27"
"The staff was accommodating and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel.2019-10-25"
"The hotel, personnel, and food were all excellent. The neighborhood was pretty sketchy, though; we ate at IHOP next door and took a walk after dinner, but soon found ourselves in undesirable surroundings.2019-09-02"
"Close to everything. The bed and pillows were so comfortable. I'd stay at this hotel again.2016-10-24"
"Located in a run-down area, but the great for going to Pikes Peak. The hotel clerk was abrupt and refused my request for an early check-in until I saw other people check in early and asked again. Not many restaurants nearby.2016-08-17"

"Good location; we saw deer from our window. The room was clean, but I didn't like the awful-smelling air freshener that was frequently sprayed in the hallways. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful.2015-06-25"
"The hotel room smelled bad, and half the lights didn't work. Overall, this was a dark and dirty place. The bedsheets were stained and put on backwards. Don't stay here.2017-07-19"
"The room was average but clean. The drapes, shower curtains, and bedding looked dirty, and I didn't want to walk barefoot on the carpet. Adequate bed, but the edges were hard and uncomfortable to sit on. The bathtub and shower needed cleaning. I don't recommend this hotel. 2016-05-31"
"Clean room and really great breakfast. We recommend this hotel.2018-04-03"
"The hotel seemed overpriced. A large chunk of the dresser in my room was missing, and the bedside table came off its platform. The bedding was stained. The staff was friendly, though, and breakfast was decent. I'd pass on this one.2016-09-07"
"The room was basic but clean. The door latch was broken off. A board under the mattress stuck out but was hidden by the bedskirt, and I hit my shin on it. The check-in clerks were exceptionally nice and friendly. An OK hotel if you just need a place to sleep.2015-06-24"
"This hotel was nasty and not worth the price. Look for other options.2021-09-11"
"The motel rates were good, and the room was clean.2018-11-07"
"There was a lot of traffic and train noise, though the motel was clean and I loved how helpful the front desk clerks were. My father was in the hospital, and they did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. Ask for a street away from the noise.2018-09-04"
"The motel room smelled bad, but it was clean other than the sock on the floor left by a previous guest. The stairs were in a state of disrepair. The continental breakfast was really weak. Stay here if your options are limited.2018-08-17"
"Not a good value. The motel was old and badly in need of refurbishing. The toilet paper was too thin. Look for another option.2016-08-03"
"The motel was disgusting. I left after 5 minutes. Find another place to stay.2020-05-26"
"Decent motel room. The staff was friendly, but there were strange people lurking outside, and there seemed to be people sleeping in the hallways. The roof was leaking in various places, and there were buckets catching the water. Don't recommend.2015-05-31"
"It was raining when we arrived at the motel, and there were 5-gallon buckets in the hallway catching water. The nightstand in my non-smoking room had cigarette burns. No elevator, and the stairway railing was broken; a large, exposed screw was pointing upwards. At least the coffee at breakfast was good. Keep looking.2015-05-21"
"Good downtown location near many restaurants and attractions. The well-equipped lobby was on the 2nd floor, with secured guest access to other floors. The room was clean and had nice bedding and towels. The pool and exercise room were good options. Nice breakfast for a reasonable price. One issue was that I wasn't able to get a taxi to pick me up at the airport at 1 AM.2021-08-02"
"The hotel was right downtown, so I was able to walk to restaurants and shops. The room was a bit dated but nice, clean, and good-sized. Excellent front desk clerks. Beautiful lounge area, but the wine list wasn't that good. Breakfast was fine and the service was good. Ask for a room with a view.2017-09-12"
"The hotel room was comfortable, and the breakfast buffet was awesome. Valet parking was pricey. I really enjoyed my stay.2016-08-18"

"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"
"The hotel was reasonably priced and had a lot of amenities. The room was clean and comfortable, and the front desk clerk was friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend staying here.2021-10-24"

"The breakfast buffet wasn't available because of Covid. The only options were apples, bananas, yogurt, and boxes of cereal, but there wasn't even any milk for the cereal. I wasn't happy about this hotel stay.2020-10-01"

"The motel had bedbugs. The staff was rude. I left early. Don't stay here.2020-08-15"

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.
