"Check-in was great, but shortly after we got settled into a room, a large group entered; they had a room key and thought it was their room. The hotel clerk apologized for the mix-up, but then our key cards wouldn't work. My daughter had to wait over 30 minutes at the front desk for the keys to be reactivated.2022-03-14"
"A wonderful place to stay. The hotel was clean, quiet, and close to shopping areas and the amusement and water park. I liked having a kitchen in our suite. If you want a great stay, this is the place.2018-07-29"
"This hotel was disgusting. We weren't able to get a 1st floor room as requested, though my wife is handicapped and there was no elevator. The room was a smoking room and smelled like an ashtray. No security latch on the door, and the deadbolt didn't work. Don't stay here.2021-07-25"
"I was unhappy with my stay at this hotel. I was given a handicap room that I didn't want or need. I asked for a room change but was told it was too late. No soap or shampoo provided, and again, the front desk staff didn't care. 2018-10-16"
"I saw the hotel clerk sleeping when I went to the vending machine. One minute after checkout time, the staff was banging on our door, and they returned a minute later even though we said we needed to get dressed. Don't stay here.2017-10-27"
"My room was moderately clean, but it was well-worn. The carpet was worn through to the cement. The back door had a broken lock. The hotel staff was polite and courteous, and directed me to my room when I checked in.2015-05-18"
"Nice room layout, and I liked having a fridge. The WiFi kept disconnecting. The front desk clerks were friendly. Good breakfast with a nice variety of hot and cold food. There was only one elevator. There were some great wineries in the area.2019-08-30"

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.
