"Check-in was OK, but there was some confusion about a security deposit. The hotel room was freezing, and we found a baby gecko in the bathroom. I saw 2 roaches in there at night, one on the vanity counter approaching my toothbrush. It was unnerving to say the least.2022-11-10"
"Every employee was helpful, professional, and personable. I felt like I was at a family gathering. I highly recommend this hotel if you want a pleasant, easy stay.2022-10-06"
"The hotel was close to the airport. The room was nice and spacious, and the bathroom was large, but the toilet was hard to flush and I had to remove the tank top and flush it manually. The bathtub faucet dripped, and there was a rust stain by the drain. The worst problem was the AC, which was so loud that I didn't get much sleep.2022-08-04"

"An awful experience. I had to push the door open with my shoulder, and the room smelled like urine and smoke. There was a phone line under the threshold that went outside. The motel staff was rude. We booked a 7-night stay but left after one night. Don't stay here.2019-09-24"
"We had a pleasant motel stay. The location was easy to find and close to everything we wanted to do. No fridge in the room.2018-03-12"
"We were shocked at how depressing the room was. There was no color whatsoever. The bed didn't have a skirt or comforter. The carpet had rough edges that were a tripping hazard, and the lock on the room door was upside-down. The front desk clerk didn't speak English well, making communication stressful. Find a different hotel.2023-03-22"
"Not a good hotel stay this time. The power partially went out at 6 PM and was still out when we checked out the next day. We couldn't use the TV or WiFi, and only one light worked.

The heater didn't adequately warm the room, and the WiFi kept disconnecting. No in-room coffee.

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.
