"I had no complaints. The hotel was fine, and service was good. I didn't like the bed, but I think that's normal when you're not sleeping in your own bed at home. There's no reason for anyone to be disappointed here.2017-10-01"
"Close to Siesta Key. The hotel was nice and clean, with a great pool area. Food was easily accessible.2017-03-11"
"The hotel room was clean. The AC didn't work properly at night, and there were no maintenance workers on-site at that time. The fridge didn't get very cold. Check-in was fine, and the staff was pleasant. The ice machine on our floor didn't work. The elevator was like a hot box. Nice breakfast with a variety of food. Not enough parking, and the double speed bumps were killers if you have a bad back.2016-07-14"

"The hotel was dated, and the exterior and grounds needed cleaning. Good TV. The bed and fridge were clean. The bathtub was grimy. The toilet ran all night, and the handle was loose. No restaurants or bars nearby. If aesthetics bother you, don't stay here.2022-02-26"

"We stayed at this hotel with our cat when we had to evacuate due to Hurricane Irma. The staff was fabulous despite working with a skeleton crew that volunteered to work during the storm. Everyone was wonderful. We felt safe, secure, and well cared for.2017-09-18"

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.
