"The room and bathroom were clean. I was unable to sleep well because of the rock-hard bed and deflating pillows. The cookies that were supposed to be available from 5-8 PM were gone by 5:30. The elevator floor was always wet and slippery from people coming back from the pool. The hotel clerks were nice and customer service-oriented. No shuttle to the hospital. Good place for a short stay.2021-07-09"

"An exceptional hotel in a wonderful location. We loved our newly-remodeled room with sleek, modern decor. Nice hardwood floors, big TV, and elegant bath. The hotel clerks were genuine and gracious and welcomed me warmly. Good on-site dining with extraordinary service. The waiter even offered to bring our food to our room so we could watch the game. Great French restaurant across the street, too. 2018-04-11"

"The toilet in our room didn't flush, and no one came to fix it despite numerous calls to the front desk. It took hours for someone to come fix it. The bathtub didn't drain well, so I had to shower in ankle-deep water. We called for clean towels, toilet paper, and coffee, but didn't get them until the next day. We were disappointed that the pool was closed and that parking cost $16 a day. The restaurant wasn't open in the morning, and the coffee bar was never open. This hotel didn't live up to our expectations at all.2021-05-02"

"The hotel is right next to a large strip club, which I would have liked to know ahead of time. Our "non-smoking" room reeked of smoke. We were moved to another room that also smelled like smoke, but not as badly. We were exhausted and the staff wouldn't work with us any more, so we stayed in the 2nd room. The bathroom floor was filthy, as was the AC vent. The cord for the hair dryer had slime on it. The dirt on the toilet seat was so engrained that we couldn't clean it. The shower wall was damaged and leaked; it had been covered with plaster, but still leaked. Graffiti and phone numbers on the wall had been partially wiped, but not painted over. The manager was not nice, and walked away from me when I tried to show her my photos of the poor room conditions.2015-07-20"
"The hotel room wasn't clean enough, and was full of ants.2015-06-21"
"The room carpet was old and tired. The bathtub drained slowly, and some plaster was peeling on top of the bathtub. Breakfast was supposed to start at 6:30 AM, but we couldn't even get coffee at 7 AM. Talking to the front desk clerk was totally useless. Choose a different hotel.2023-02-13"
"The hotel was OK, but there was black mold in the corner of the bathroom ceiling. The ice machine on our floor didn't work. Be prepared to pay over $15 for a breakfast buffet, or go next door to McDonald's. 2022-07-02"
"The hotel was a bit run-down, and our non-smoking room smelled like cigarettes. The furniture looked pretty rough, and we noticed peeling paint and mold on the bathroom ceiling. The bed was super comfortable, though, and the room was clean enough.2021-06-30"
"Just minutes from the children's hospital, and there were plenty of restaurants around. The hotel was clean, and the room was spacious. Only half a roll of toilet paper was provided. The front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. 2021-05-20"
"The hotel room was nice, and the staff was friendly and welcoming. Arrive early to get a good parking spot. We arrived late and had to park in the back late at night.2019-12-19"
"This motel room was the nastiest I've ever stayed in. It smelled horrible, and the floors were sticky. The AC was falling apart, and the walls and ceilings had peeling paint. Don't stay here.2021-06-04"
"The motel was really sketchy, with guests that made us uncomfortable. Someone tried to enter our room. The tap water was brown. We were shocked. Don't stay here.2020-10-31"
"Not in a good part of town. The motel was dirty, and the police were there every night of my stay. The room smelled like stale cigarette smoke. Find another place to stay.2020-08-10"

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.
