"I had a nice, relaxing stay at this motel.2019-10-07"
"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"

"Not a 5-star hotel, but it was a pretty good value. Close to restaurants, shops, and theme parks. Because of the Covid-19 outbreak, staffing was minimal and there was no sit-down breakfast. The bench by the TV had obvious stains on it, as did the chair in the room. The bed was OK. The front desk clerks were nice, welcoming, and accommodating. A bagged breakfast was provided.2020-03-26"

"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 bedside lamp didn't have an on-off switch. No working phone. The floor and bedspread were stained, and the mattress was uncomfortable. We didn't stay.2022-03-29"

"There were several dead roaches in our room. The walls looked like they had dirty footprints on them. The bed boxsprings were dirty. When we arrived, the TV was on and the sliding door was open in our ground floor room. The exterior doors near our room stayed unlocked at all times. We were a little nervous about security. Don't stay at this motel.2015-11-18"
"Convenient to Ybor City and Hailey VA. As requested, I was given a room on the 1st floor near the lobby. Didn't have a flat-screen TV. No closet or hangers. No coffee pot, iron, or luggage cart. And most importantly, it didn't have a separate dead-bolt or other lock on the door. The pool landscaping was under renovation, so I wasn't able to swim. But the motel was quiet, and I enjoyed my stay.2015-04-26"

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.
