"Located in a strange part of town. Only one restaurant nearby. The motel had 2 buildings. The room was tiny, but reasonably maintained. The bed did me in, though; it was lumpy and hard, and I didn't sleep well at all. There was a pretty unusable table with two chairs crammed between the bed and the window AC. We had our cats with us, and there was very little room for them. The bathroom was small, and the toilet seat was the smallest I've ever seen. The front desk clerk was courteous. Think twice about staying here.2015-04-28"

"Easy to access from I-75, and there was a gas station and Walmart right there. The hotel room was immaculate. The bed was comfortable, and the sheets smelled fresh. The AC worked perfectly. The window shade had a stuck pulley so we couldn't open it, but that was the only issue. The staff was friendly and went out of their way, and were accommodating to my dog.

"We were pleased with the clean room and comfortable bed. The staff was really nice. The connected City Cafe was amazing. I loved that the motel was within walking distance of many attractions, and the free shuttle was convenient. My only complaint was the people hanging out in the parking lot asking for money. We'd stay here again.2018-05-31"
"Beautiful old hotel, but ants were taking over the bathroom. The wall-mounted heater made almost as much racket as the guests that confused our room for theirs, and kept returning to try their key in our door. Very disappointed that there was no coffee when we got up, and we'd have to wait hours for any until someone arrived and brewed some. Excellent restaurant, but sleep somewhere else.2015-03-11"

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.
