"Our 1st room was shabby and had the noisiest AC I've ever heard; it was like sleeping in an airport hangar. The hotel staff apologized and promised us an upgrade to a suite for our 2nd visit. However, our 2nd room was much like the 1st. No breakfast, and the restaurant was closed. Sandwiches were available from the fridge in the reception area, but they were expensive and disgusting. The bright spot was the front desk staff. Don't stay here.2021-08-14"
"Great room. The hotel staff was accommodating when we requested a late checkout. Stay here.2017-07-31"
"Great place to stay. The bi-level room was interesting and different. It felt more like home with a full kitchen and half-bathroom on the 1st level, and bedroom and full bathroom on the upper level. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend staying here, and try the restaurant next door.2016-05-19"

"I liked the landscaped grounds and the cleanliness and comfort of the hotel. The room was clean and spacious, and I appreciated the fridge, quality desk chair, comfortable sofa and side chair, and the sink in the living area. The heavy drapes didn't close, so there might be too much light for some. No heater or exhaust fan in the bathroom.2018-07-02"

"Close to shopping and dining at Blueback Square. The hotel was undergoing a major renovation; looks like it will be great when it's completed, but there was no apparent counter for check-in. The room was clean and up-to-date, and the beds were wonderful. The employees were extremely courteous and helpful. Great breakfast. The only drawback was the loud nightclub adjacent to the hotel.2016-01-27"
"Reasonably priced. No-frills and nothing fancy, but we had a nice, clean room with a flat-screen TV and everything we needed. Continental breakfast was included. We recommend this hotel; it's perfect for a short stay.2015-11-11"
"An average hotel just a 15-minute walk from Rentschler Field. Not located in the greatest part of town. I was disappointed that the elevator was broken. The room was clean, though, and the AC was cold. 2022-06-01"
"The hotel was in dire need of refurbishing. The elevator was out of service, and being older, it was hard for us to climb the stairs to the 3rd floor with our luggage. I wouldn't stay here again.2022-04-01"

"Close to the college and sports fields. The room was small but clean. Kids from sports event teams weren't always quiet. Nice staff. There was a small lounge with a good bartender. The food was edible, but try local restaurants instead. I'd stay at this hotel again.2016-02-24"
"The 1st room smelled like cigarette smoke. The TV didn't work, and there was no stopper for the bathtub. Don't stay at this hotel.2018-10-17"
"The hotel employees were helpful and kind.2017-07-05"
"The hotel had power outage issues all weekend, though the rest of the street didn't seem to have any problems. The lights in the building flickered, and there were no lights in the stairwells. Half the lights in our room didn't work, and the microwave didn't, either. The pool was closed. No breakfast due to the electrical issues. A noisy, scary place, especially at night. Don't stay here.2017-04-04"
"Good location and rates. I liked having 2 queen-sized beds instead of doubles. Nice hotel clerk. The pool water was dirty, there was an upside-down table in the pool area, and there was some black mold on the pool walls. Breakfast was a plus, but there wasn't much selection.2017-03-30"
"Bathroom was small, but everything else at this hotel was good. I'd stay again.2015-02-12"
"This was the dirtiest hotel I've ever stayed in. The room reeked of cleaning products, and the carpet turned my feet black. No iron, and only one waste basket. Garbage was blowing around the grounds. Don't stay here.2015-07-17"
"I've stayed at this hotel before and always had good experiences, but this stay was negative. There was hair in the bathtub and in the corner of the bathroom, and the bathroom door wouldn't shut. The faucet leaked and didn't work properly. The drawers in the room looked like they were chewed on by a dog.2020-08-14"

"This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. The room was clean and had a microwave, fridge, coffee maker, and hair dryer. The only issue was that my room was right next to an AC that turned on and off throughout the night. Pleasant front desk clerks. The restaurant was a bit expensive, but the food and service were good. 2018-04-02"

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.
