"Considering the price, I expected more. The room was small, and I heard what sounded like running water all night. The TV was small, and the remote control was worn out. The breakfast area was too small, so we had to go to a different room to eat. The employees were friendly, but we won't be returning.2018-02-26"

"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"
"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"

If we didn't already have a reservation, we wouldn't have stayed.2015-09-24"

"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"

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.
