"This hotel is a top-notch property. The room was beautiful, and the staff was friendly.2017-01-03"
"Our handicap room didn't have a bathtub, so we were moved to another room the next day. The room was small and had a dirty carpet. Didn't like the paper cups. Some of the whirlpool jets didn't work. Minimal exercise room. This hotel was economy lodging with a decent lobby and dining room. Spend more money for quality.2015-08-18"

"The bed in my room wasn't made, and there was trash in the hallway for 2 days. No coffee machine. An awful experience considering my room wasn't serviced during my stay. Not a good value. Don't stay at this hotel.2021-02-04"
"The room was comfortable and clean, and the hotel staff was courteous and professional. We had brunch at the Post restaurant; the food was delicious, and the water was the nicest guy.

"The hotel needed updating. The grounds were overgrown with weeds, and the lawn hadn't been mowed. The lobby trash cans were overflowing, and the floors needed vacuuming. The room was clean, but the bathroom needed updating. The check-in clerk was friendly, but didn't offer directions to our room or explain the easy access to the parking area. The continental breakfast was a packaged muffin and fruit. Find another hotel.2021-06-27"

"The staff was pleasant, but the bed was uncomfortable and the HVAC machinery for the lobby was right outside our window; it was like sleeping in a boiler room when it was running. The furniture layout reminded me of a storage closet. Find another hotel.2018-05-30"
"Conveniently located off I-95. Reasonable rates. The 1st room smelled like cleaning products, and there were burn holes in the bedspread. I requested a room change and was pleased with the 2nd room.

"Not a good hotel stay. The AC didn't work well even after a service call. The front desk clerk made errors at check-in. A housekeeper walked into our room at 7:30 AM; we didn't hear any knocking.

"The location was great, but the hotel room wasn't. The paint on the ceiling was peeling, and the alarm clock didn't work. There was mold in the bathroom, and we eventually realized that the hot and cold water taps were reversed.2015-10-06"

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.
