"Right off Highway 4. I was impressed with this hotel the last time I stayed, but not this time. The room was comfortable, but there was a fight in the room next door that the staff had to handle. Friendly employees, but I never got my requested wake-up call.2015-08-24"

"The room had a stale smell, and there was a roach in the bedroom. One of the beds was so close to the wall and AC that I couldn't walk around either bed. There was a stain on the wall by the toilet paper. The hallway reeked of old cigarette smoke. Find another hotel.2019-01-21"
"I could see touch-up paint all over the hotel. No TV remote control in my room. My key card didn't work the 2nd day, so I had to return to the front desk to get replacements. The cleaning staff entered my room despite the Do Not Disturb sign on the door. The women's bathroom on the main floor flooded, and there was water everywhere. Not worth the price.2016-01-21"

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.
