"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 clean, but the bedside table was a bit banged up.2017-06-22"
"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 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"
"Great place to stay. The hotel was clean and comfortable. All the employees were friendly and helpful, and there was a terrific breakfast every morning.2020-02-24"

"The hotel room was clean, and the front desk clerks were pleasant and accommodating.2017-12-04"
"Many items in the room were broken, and the key card didn't work; I had to go to the front desk every time I wanted to enter my room. The housekeeper didn't clean my room; when I asked her about it, she tried to hand me the vacuum cleaner. The staff was unprofessional. Don't stay at this hotel.2016-11-27"
"The bed in my hotel room had clean sheets, but the garbage can hadn't been emptied, there were empty bottles on the nightstands, and there was a used towel on the sink. I also found a wine bottle in the fridge and a case of unopened water bottles. The housekeepers were friendly when they came to clean my room, but they didn't provide a bag for the ice bucket.2016-11-21"
"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 hotel was adequate. The room had a handicap shower, and there was no counter space for toiletries.2019-01-30"
"I wasn't sure where the lobby was when I arrived at the hotel. There was construction material everywhere, and no parking was available. The room was small; the full bed took up the whole room and looked like someone had just slept in it. The room had an overpowering smell of stale cigarettes. I called the front desk and asked for a room change; the clerks didn't believe how bad it was until they came up and saw the room for themselves. I was moved to a room that was cleaner, but the blinds wouldn't shut so there was a 6-inch gap where people could see in. The TV didn't work, and the clerk's solution was a call from the manager instructing me on how to fix it. This didn't work, and I was offered another room change, which I refused. Don't stay here.2016-05-19"
"The hotel was dirty, and the check-in clerk was rude. Our room was on the 2nd floor, and there was no elevator; we had to lug our bags up a flight of stairs. We didn't even use the whirlpool because we were scared it wasn't properly cleaned. None of the soda vending machines worked. Don't stay at this hotel.2015-05-31"
"The staff was friendly, and the breakfast buffet was good. Drink tickets were offered to guests. I highly recommend this hotel.2019-05-28"

"The staff was friendly; the manager recognized me as a frequent visitor and even paid me a visit. Limited workout room. Good complimentary breakfast buffet, and the hotel is adjacent to the Airplane restaurant, which has great food and drinks. The on-site restaurant offered complimentary drink coupons.2016-08-18"
"The hotel was clean, and the staff was helpful. Parking wasn't good.2022-09-30"

"The hotel was noisy. Ask for a room on the top floor.2021-03-13"
"Close to the Academy and trails for walking or jogging. Good restaurants across the street. Great housekeeping. I slept well, but my husband thought the bed was too firm. The hotel staff was super friendly. The gym was perfect. Breakfast had options for everyone. Good place to stay.2015-09-11"
"My stay was short and comfortable. The hotel clerks were helpful, understanding, and resourceful. Limited staffing, though, so expect some limitations of service.2021-10-05"
"The room smelled like urine. The hotel clerk gave us another room, but it wasn't well-cleaned, and we didn't have enough towels. The coffee maker was the wrong model for the coffee inserts; I told the clerk, and all he said was, "Thank you." There was trash in the hallway for 12 hours. The pool was closed. Breakfast was a joke; the food ran out by 7 AM. Don't stay here.2021-06-10"

"The hotel room was comfortable, and breakfast was good.2018-08-28"
"The hotel room was large, clean, and well-kept. We were on the 6th floor and weren't bothered by noise. The check-in clerk was busy but hospitable, but the checkout clerk didn't even smile or act polite or nice. Breakfast was adequate.2018-08-02"
"The hotel room was sub-par. There was a used pod in the coffee maker, and there were no sugar packets. Only one bar of soap was provided for both the sink and shower. The corners of the bath weren't clean. Don't stay here.2022-05-02"
"Fair rates for a decent hotel. Get to breakfast before food runs out.2018-04-02"
"Not a good experience. I was actually afraid to stay. Find another hotel.2016-12-09"
"Nice hotel room, and the front desk clerk was pleasant. Seeing the mouse in the breakfast area, however, wasn't so great.2015-08-05"
"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 motel had bedbugs. The staff was rude. I left early. Don't stay here.2020-08-15"
"My motel room had bedbugs. I was moved to another room after being bitten numerous times. The bedsheets had mold on them, and the toilet didn't flush properly. Breakfast was a joke. Expect the worst if you stay here.2019-12-25"
"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"
"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"
"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"
"The hotel clerk was extremely unpleasant, rude, and unhelpful. No hand towels, washcloths, or hangers available. There was dog food and hair on the room floor. The whirlpool and breakfast were not available. Don't stay here.2022-09-13"
"This hotel is always a pleasant place to stay. Go for it.2019-01-25"

"Good location near shops, restaurants, and the Air Force Academy. The building and room were just OK and a little run-down around the edges. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. We had a problem with the AC, and they took care of it right away.2015-09-09"
"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"
"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"
"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"

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.
