"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"

"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"

"Nice hotel. Our junior suite was roomy and clean, and the front desk clerks were friendly and helpful. The only problem we experienced was that the elevator was out of order. The staff was apologetic, and offered to have our bags carried upstairs for us. Good breakfast.2015-08-18"
"Not a bad hotel. The room was clean and pleasant.2022-09-16"
"The hotel was run-down and not worth the price. The toilet overflowed at night, and the front desk clerk was nowhere to be found. When we did reach him, he said he'd contact us after talking to maintenance. We never heard back, so we asked for a plunger and cleaned up the mess ourselves. The manager never returned my call, and the staff overall was indifferent. Don't stay here.2019-08-24"

"Excellent accommodations. The room and common areas were clean and well-kept, and the rates were reasonable. The hotel clerk didn't seem to know what he was doing, and check-in took nearly 15 minutes. The checkout clerk seemed baffled when I asked for a receipt.2019-04-10"

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.
