"The room didn't look clean. There was a used bandaid on the bedsheet, so the hotel clerk came up and changed all the bedding and repeatedly apologized. The staff was really helpful and answered all our questions and took care of any issues. I'll look for a cleaner hotel next time.2016-05-12"
"The hotel room was large and lovely, with more than enough room for my husband, our granddaughter, me, and our dog. Had an indoor pool and nice little restaurant for breakfast and snacks. I definitely recommend staying here.2017-06-14"

"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"

"Good location if you're visiting Yale and museums. The hotel was comfortable, but it took 3 tries to get a quiet room away from the street and rooftop compressors. The staff was accommodating, helpful, and hospitable.2017-09-28"
"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. No restaurant or room service, just a coffee shop. Limited food choices, but we did get a voucher for a free beverage. Don't stay here.2021-07-18"
"A positive experience overall. Lots of charges for incidentals, though.2018-01-26"

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.
