"The carpet in our hotel room was soaked between the beds; we put a towel on it and it was yellow when we returned. When we complained to the front desk, we were told the housekeeper would check it out. There was mold in the bathtub, and the paint was peeling above the shower. This was the worst Marriott property I've stayed in, and I don't recommend it.2017-11-09"
"Near the Hard Rock Stadium. Good bed with soft pillows. The hotel clerk told us about the Original Pancake House just a 10-minute drive away. Give her a gold star.2017-01-02"

"The hotel smelled awful, and the hallway carpeting was nasty. The key card machine wasn't working, so we had to be escorted to our room by an employee. The bathtub was rusty and needed to be resurfaced. The ice machine was broken and moldy. Don't stay here.2021-11-09"

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.
