"The interior of the hotel was nice. There was a certain minimalist ambiance to the room. The lobby had some local art and cool decor. Park down below the overhang area and take the elevator directly to your room.2016-09-15"

"Not worth the price. We had to go to the front desk for linens for the sofa bed. The shower had a leak and sprayed water all over the bathroom floor. The elevator was slow.

When we returned at night, there were no sheets on the bed and the phone didn't work, so we had to go to the front desk to resolve the problems.

"The maintenance man harassed us as soon as we checked in and moved the people in the next room because they weren't comfortable being next to us. Not a 5-star hotel, but we felt like we were targeted our entire stay. We didn't feel welcome or comfortable. Don't stay at this motel.2016-07-08"

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.
