"My hotel room was dirty and located by the noisy ice maker, and we were told no other rooms were available. The furniture was gritty, and the curtains were off the hooks and didn't close correctly. There was hair in the shower, and the floor was dirty. No hair dryer. Find another place to stay.2022-02-27"
"Nice stay for the price. The motel was clean and quiet, and there were no problems with having my dog. Quick check-in and checkout. The pool looked nice, and there was an elevator to the 2nd floor. I'd stay here again.2019-09-12"
"The hotel was really nice, but the windows, elevators, and lobby needed more cleaning. Our room was great, with a spectacular view. Nice personnel. The valet service was a little expensive, and there was a $25 daily deposit.2021-05-19"
"This hotel was not up to the usual Hampton standard. We found many live bugs in the shower, which upset my wife, and 2 roaches scampered along the TV stand. We reported the issue to the front desk clerk, but the manager never contacted me as I expected.2021-01-17"
"Nice hotel, but the general maintenance was poor. We stayed for 3 days, and each day our key card access code was erased; we had to find the housekeeper to let us in the room. Nice furnishings and comfortable beds. The kitchenette was big enough, but the microwave was old and rusted. The fridge was poorly placed, and it was hard to open the door because it was so close to the cabinets. Two electrical outlets didn't work. The front desk clerks were helpful and pleasant. Parking cost $7.2021-09-14"
"I didn't get a top-floor room as requested. The bathroom lights burned out at about 8 PM, and I was unable to contact the front desk. When I told the checkout clerk, I wasn't offered any compensation. I won't stay at this hotel again.2021-10-01"
"The hotel was close to I-95 and right behind a Red Lobster restaurant. There were other restaurants in the area, and the Daytona Speedway was about a mile away. The room was clean and well-appointed. Nice staff and satisfactory breakfast.2018-01-08"
"Good location near the beach, restaurants, and stores. The room was clean and comfortable, with a great bed and pillows. I took advantage of the Keurig coffee maker. Good water pressure in the shower. I highly recommend this hotel.2018-01-15"
"Nice hotel room, but check-in took over a half hour. We arranged for breakfast at 8 AM, then changed it to 7 AM. The food didn't arrive until 8:10, and by then the food was cold. We had to ask to have our room cleaned since no housekeeper turned up. Our breakfast food was hot the 2nd day, but it still wasn't good.2019-03-20"
"This hotel was run-down and awful. The room wasn't clean, and the wall had hair and stains that looked like blood. Dated shower with used soap on the bottom of the bathtub. Parking was limited, so I had to park off-site. Find another place to stay.2020-02-17"
"This was the filthiest motel I've ever stayed in. I had to go to the front desk 3 times because there was no working phone in the room. The TV didn't work; the clerk said he'd come fix it, but never did. Don't stay here.2022-11-27"

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.
