"The room was old and in bad condition. The mattresses were old and lumpy, and the bathroom was so filthy that we couldn't take showers. We spoke to the motel clerk, and she said it was the kind of room you get if you bring a dog. I can't express what a horrible place this was.2022-01-04"
"This motel was worth the price. The employees were friendly.2020-07-25"

"You get what you pay for. The hotel was simple and fairly clean, and the lobby was inviting. Average room, but it was quiet. The desk chair was broken and tilted when I sat in it. The carpet needed to be replaced, and we found someone's shoes under the bed. Housekeeping only made one bed the 2nd day. Carb-heavy breakfast. There was only one, slow elevator. Go with low expectations and you won't be disappointed.2017-11-19"

"Convenient to the interstate and a major shopping center with lots of restaurants. I was given a room far from the lobby, and the room smelled bad. I was able to change rooms, but it was again far from the lobby and right by the staircase. I didn't feel safe, and I didn't sleep well because of truck noise from the interstate. The motel clerk brushed me off when I asked why I was put in that room when the motel wasn't full.2017-11-06"

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.
