"The chair and sofa in my room were stained, and the ceiling had water damage. The TV picture was so blurry that we couldn't watch anything. There was mold on the bathroom ceiling, in the bathtub, and on the bathroom door. There's a reason the motel was so cheap; but in a pinch, it'll do.2021-09-26"

"The motel was right off the interstate, with lots of restaurants and gas stations nearby. The bed was extremely firm, and there were people screaming outside our door after midnight; when we called the front desk about it, the clerk didn't seem concerned. Consider staying elsewhere.2019-10-07"
"This was my worst motel stay ever. The room was outdated, the lighting was poor, and both the room and bathroom were dark. The heater didn't work and we froze for 3 days. I ended up sleeping in my trailer. Not happy.2019-02-19"

"The room was clean and comfortable, but the bedspread was thin and there were no blankets in the closet. The phone in the room didn't work; I had to call the front desk on my cell phone and was told I'd have to come down to get a blanket myself. The bathroom door had stains and water damage, and there was rust on the door frame. There was a stain on the wall by the toilet paper dispenser. There was an ugly scene in the morning with hotel housekeepers yelling and cursing as they walked back and forth by the eating area. On a positive note, the breakfast attendant was extremely nice and helpful, and she apologized for the behavior of the housekeepers.2020-01-02"

"The motel was old and poorly maintained. The door near our room was broken, so we had to go around the building to get to our room. The check-in clerk was confused about our room request, and we weren't able to stay on the 1st floor. Someone mistakenly entered our room in the middle of the night, so they must have been given a key. They left right away, but it was upsetting. Don't stay here.2020-02-02"

"Nice hotel, but the shower door wouldn't close; I reported the problem within 30 minutes, but it was never fixed. So each time we took a shower, the bathroom floor got wet. We had to get extra towels to put on the floor so we wouldn't slip. The staff was friendly. Other than the maintenance issue, I enjoyed my stay.2015-03-30"
"The room and bathroom were clean, but the toilet seat was broken. The entrance was easy to miss coming from 75 from the north.2021-05-08"

"An OK motel. We slept well. The bathroom and sink area outside of it smelled like mildew. It was fine for the price.2018-01-03"
"We were just getting settled into our hotel room when I saw a lizard in the bathroom. I called the front desk and the clerk said he was on his way, but instead of removing the lizard, he moved us to another room at 1 AM. I was disappointed.2017-04-22"

"Our stay was awful because the people in the next room were loud and smoked outside our room into the wee hours of the morning. We got almost no sleep. No phone in the room. We told the motel clerk in the morning; she said to tell her if we had problems the 2nd night. The noise started up again, with slamming doors and adults yelling at children all night. We also heard loud vehicles and music from the parking lot. The housekeeper came in the room while we were sleeping, but we had the chain lock on. We were extremely unhappy.2020-10-07"

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.
