"Located in a safe area. Walk to the river and enjoy a delicious meal at Mattison's. The hotel was quiet, the room was clean and comfortable, and the employees were helpful.2017-06-07"
"My room had a view of the parking lot. A lamp in my room didn't work, and the bathroom wasn't clean. I was moved to another room; 2 lights didn't work, but they were quickly fixed. Didn't get the correct room service order, though I did get an apology. Not my best hotel stay.2017-03-27"
"The hotel was dirty, and there were dead roaches all over the bathroom floors. The mattress had brown stains around the edges of the stitching, and the carpet in both rooms and the hallway was stained. The room chairs had food crumbs around the edges of the cushions. One of the beds sagged. Our rooms faced the harbor; the sliding glass door didn't lock in one. We requested a refund after 30 minutes and went to another hotel. Don't stay here.2016-12-18"
"The hotel was brand new, so some kinks were still being worked out. The WiFi wasn't reliable, and the AC was a little loud. I saw a palmetto bug in the kitchen. The staff was helpful and courteous. Give it a try.2019-06-20"

"The front desk clerk needed better training; he told me twice that my credit card was declined. I left to have lunch, and when I returned, he said it had been accepted. I had been traveling all day and just wanted to rest. 2016-03-07"
"Easy to find and access. The motel was older, but it was comfortable and quiet, even though my room faced the busy road. The fridge got really cold, and there was a Keurig coffee maker. The wireless Internet was a little slow. Adequate continental breakfast. For the price and type of lodging, I give this place a 4.5 out of 5.2017-05-23"

"A bad hotel stay. At 2 AM, someone began banging on our door, then hiding so we couldn't see them through the peephole or window. We called the front desk and were told someone would check it out.2016-07-19"
"When we arrived, my wife went to a trash can in the lobby to throw out 2 cups. The motel clerk rudely told her she had to go outside to throw them away in a garbage can across the driveway by the pool. I told him this was rude, and he said it was "motel rules". If we didn't already have a reservation, we wouldn't have stayed.2015-09-24"
"Older motel, but the price was right. The room was comfortable, but needed updating. Helpful, friendly desk clerks.2015-04-01"
"Motel only has 2 smoking rooms, and I didn't get one. Also didn't get requested 1st floor room. Room wasn't that clean. Found out after my shower that no towels had been provided; I had to use the bedsheets to dry off. Don't recommend.2015-02-09"
"The hotel room was old, shabby, and filthy; there was pet hair everywhere. I found 2 cockroaches as well. Find another place to stay.2020-01-24"

"OK hotel at best. The bathroom wasn't cleaned, and the toilet smelled bad throughout our 4-day stay. There was mold on the showerhead. Every piece of workout equipment was broken in some way. Breakfast wasn't good. I wouldn't stay here again.2015-08-15"
"Close to everything; right by I-75 and minutes from the beach. The hotel was exceptionally clean and had a wonderful staff. The only downside was that the beds were doubles instead of queens. Lots of healthy and hot selections at breakfast. Great place to stay.2016-01-01"

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.
