"Not a good experience. We didn't feel safe here. There was a large gap around the room door that let in cold air. There were just 3 tiny pillows for 2 people. The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling, and the shower looked so bad that we didn't use it. There was dust on the mirror. No hair dryer or tissue. Stay at another motel.2018-01-09"

"Good experience. The motel was convenient to shopping areas and restaurants. The room was nice and clean. A lightbulb burned out, and the staff promptly replaced it. No meat at the continental breakfast. Stay here; you'll enjoy it.2019-06-26"
"You get what you pay for. My stay at this motel was not a pleasant one. The room smelled awful, and the dirty, dark carpet helped camouflage the cockroaches.2017-02-03"
"The motel was clean and quiet, and the staff was friendly.2016-04-20"
"We woke up at 2:30 AM to intermittent thumping noises from the room upstairs. I tried to call the front desk, but no one answered the phone, so I went down and spoke with the hotel clerk. The noise stopped after that. The checkout clerk was disrespectful and didn't even thank us for our stay. Don't stay here.2021-06-13"
"I had a relaxing stay at this hotel.2021-04-15"
"The upholstery in my hotel room needed to be steam cleaned. Even though it was a smoking room, it should still have smelled fresh.2020-01-14"
"We had to wait 15 minutes for the hotel clerk to turn up. He didn't apologize or communicate at all, and yelled at me when I didn't understand his request for an AAA number. The morning clerks were polite and friendly, but I don't recommend staying here.2019-05-05"

"The motel room wasn't clean, and there was a water stain on the floor in front of the fridge. The shower curtain was off the rod at the ends. No cups for coffee. The sink and the corners of the bathroom were dirty. There was hot water at breakfast, but no tea, and the pastries were stale. We had to ask for the wireless Internet code. Won't stay here again.2017-01-06"
"The hotel room was clean and comfortable, but the exterior lighting was dim and there were sketchy people loitering in the parking lot the 1st night. In the morning, there were people loitering in the hallway who eyed me until I got in the elevator. I didn't feel safe. The front desk clerk was friendly. I don't recommend staying here if you're a woman traveling alone.2023-01-05"

"We've stayed at this motel several times and were pleased, but this experience wasn't that good. We found a roach in our room, which made for uncomfortable sleeping. Slim selection at breakfast.2019-10-29"
"Not a good value. The hotel room was small and smelly, and areas of the carpet were sticky. The bathroom was so small that I had to straddle the toilet to close the door. The shower water was yellow for the first several minutes it was on, and it leaked everywhere. The sink dripped constantly. The soundproofing was poor; we could hear every word of the neighbor's conversation at 2:30 AM. I would have left if we hadn't been so exhausted. Don't stay here.2021-04-05"

"This hotel was really in need of a remodel. It felt dirty and unkempt, and the appliances were old. The bathroom mirror was worn on the bottom, the shower was worn out, and the flooring needed to be replaced. The walls seemed paper-thin; we could hear everything that went on in the next room. If you want a cheap room for the night, go for it. If you want creature comforts, pass on this one.2021-01-18"
"The continental breakfast at this hotel was bad.2019-06-14"

We asked for another room and were sent to a "non-smoking" room that reeked of smoke. The 3rd room was as bad as the first two. The hotel staff was courteous and refunded our money when we decided not to stay.2017-05-02"
"Our hotel room wasn't completely clean when we arrived. There was debris near the bed, and the fridge hadn't been emptied. The key card was disabled while we were at breakfast, so we had to return to the lobby and have it re-set. The morning clerk was preoccupied with her eyelashes. A subpar experience.2023-04-24"

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.
