"I had a nice, quiet, uneventful hotel stay.2018-11-20"
"We loved this hotel, and the price was right. It was so clean and fresh, and the employees were nice and helpful. Wish the pool were open later; the dawn to dusk hours didn't work for us. Good continental breakfast. We'll definitely be back.2015-07-07"
"The floors were wet, and the plumbing was leaking from the bathroom to the bedroom. My room had palmetto bugs, and the carpets were torn and taped up. There was mold on the walls. The hallway smelled bad, and the carpet was stained. No Internet service. The pool water was green. An employee entered the room without walking while I was in the bathroom. Stay away from this hotel.2022-03-21"
"The hotel lobby smelled like mildew, and it was too warm. The breakfast needed improvement.2015-08-08"
"We had an OK stay. The hotel was nice, but the housekeeper only cleaned our room once in 5 days. No close-captioning on the TV. The whirlpool didn't work. Close to restaurants. I recommend staying here.2021-07-21"
"The hotel room was small. The vanity area was outside the bathroom, so I woke my wife when I used my electric shaver. The front desk clerks were courteous and friendly, and breakfast was excellent and healthy.2018-05-27"
"We highly recommend this hotel.2017-02-06"
"The hotel clerk provided an exceptional greeting when we arrived. Place this at the top of your list.2016-08-01"
"The hotel room was overpriced; there was nothing special about it. The balcony faced a busy highway. I don't understand how a curved shower curtain rod is special. I heard a fair amount of exterior noise. Breakfast was delicious. I'll stay somewhere else next time.2016-03-10"
"There were bugs under the alarm clock. There was a hole in the bathtub and dirt and brown water behind the toilet. The smoke alarm went off at 1 AM; I had to call the front desk twice before someone answered, and then the clerk just told me to disconnect the alarm. Don't stay at this motel.2018-03-26"
"The motel room was clean, but the carpet smelled musty.2017-06-21"
"The motel seemed a little overpriced, and the room had a musty smell that wouldn't go away. Nice personnel.2017-03-14"
"The carpet in my motel room was dirty and stained. The bathroom wasn't clean. There was mold on the shower curtain, dirt in the corners and on the grout. The front desk clerks were nice. Don't stay here, though; it's gross.2017-02-27"
"The motel was easy to find, and the price was right. The room was clean and quieter than I expected. The bed was a little hard, but had a great choice of pillows. Friendly, helpful staff. The pool was clean and long enough to swim laps. Not many choices at breakfast. There was a great Thai restaurant about a mile to the north.2016-05-25"

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.
