"OK hotel, but I didn't like having to pay to park.2016-11-01"
"When I arrived at the hotel, I realized my minivan was too high for the parking garage. A professional, kind gentleman came out immediately to help me find a secure parking spot. The room was clean and comfortable, and the bartender at the lounge was nice. I'd stay here again.2016-05-04"
"The hotel was clean, and the staff was friendly. We ordered room service at 6:35, and the food didn't arrive until 7:45. The food and coffee were cold.2021-06-21"
"The room was nice, spacious, and clean, and had comfortable furnishings. Great bed; I slept well. When we called to ask for a cot and late checkout, the hotel clerk was helpful, but when we arrived, the check-in clerk didn't know about our requests. It took a few calls to get the cot, but the housekeeper was friendly. The pub was understaffed, so it took a long time to get our orders, and the food wasn't that good.2015-05-20"

"I really enjoyed my stay. The hotel was about a kilometer from the heart of downtown. I had no problems with the key cards, and most things in the room worked. The showerhead vibrated on certain settings, and the cover for the pipe was loose. Other than that, I have only good things to say.2018-07-30"
"Seemed quite pricey considering the run-down state of the room. The hotel needed to be refurbished. The doors and drawers wouldn't stay closed, and the carpet was worn. The beds were clean and comfortable. Housekeeping only serviced rooms every 3 days, so trash wasn't removed daily. Breakfast was fine.2022-11-13"
"The hotel seemed overpriced. I had to ask several times for room servicing and clean towels. There were apparent blood stains on the bathroom door. No hot breakfast because of Covid-19.2020-07-21"

The floor had water damage. The pool closed at 8 PM, which seemed a little early. There was an arcade for kids, but half the machines didn't work.

"My room was clean, with new wallpaper and carpeting. The bed was comfortable. But even though it was a smoke-free room, I could smell smoke. The entry and stairway carpeting was worn and dirty. Smoking guests huddled near the side and rear doors smoking, and the smoke traveled into the hotel. The staff was friendly and courteous.2021-07-13"

"Good accommodations, but the bathroom floor was slippery when wet; an additional grab bar in the bathtub would've been helpful. The motel staff was generally pleasant and professional.

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.
