"The hotel was as close to Universal Studios as you can get without staying on the Universal property. The room was large, and the beds were comfortable. No towel racks in the bathroom, so there was nowhere to hang up wet towels. The employees were friendly and accommodating. There was a lovely pool, and the laundry facilities were clean and up-to-date. It was hard to see the buttons in the elevator since they weren't lit.2020-03-13"

"Good value. The hotel was close to everything. The suite was clean and a great size for 2 people. The bathroom was functional but needed updating, and the shower faucet leaked. The front desk clerk could've been friendlier and more willing to offer information and assistance.2018-04-19"

Housekeeping came to the door at 9:30 AM and asked for our used towels and washcloths; they said we wouldn't get clean replacements for a few hours, so we weren't able to shower before going out. Hotel check-in clerk was friendly and helpful.2014-11-01"

When we arrived, we arranged for our luggage to be placed in our room; later we found it was in another room we booked, but we didn't have a key. Had trouble with the room AC, but a handyman fixed it. We were given a discount at the on-site restaurant for our inconvenience. Pleasant lobby. Nice breakfast and evening reception.2015-02-22"

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.
