"Close to shopping and dining at Blueback Square. The hotel was undergoing a major renovation; looks like it will be great when it's completed, but there was no apparent counter for check-in. The room was clean and up-to-date, and the beds were wonderful. The employees were extremely courteous and helpful. Great breakfast. The only drawback was the loud nightclub adjacent to the hotel.2016-01-27"

"Our 1st room was shabby and had the noisiest AC I've ever heard; it was like sleeping in an airport hangar. The hotel staff apologized and promised us an upgrade to a suite for our 2nd visit. However, our 2nd room was much like the 1st. No breakfast, and the restaurant was closed. Sandwiches were available from the fridge in the reception area, but they were expensive and disgusting. The bright spot was the front desk staff. Don't stay here.2021-08-14"
"Great room. The hotel staff was accommodating when we requested a late checkout. Stay here.2017-07-31"

"I liked the landscaped grounds and the cleanliness and comfort of the hotel. The room was clean and spacious, and I appreciated the fridge, quality desk chair, comfortable sofa and side chair, and the sink in the living area. The heavy drapes didn't close, so there might be too much light for some. No heater or exhaust fan in the bathroom.2018-07-02"

"The entrance near our room was disgusting, and the parking lot was littered with cigarette butts and broken glass. Our motel room was spacious, but the entire place smelled like an old ashtray and looked like a makeover gone wrong. We could hear the people in surrounding rooms. The pillows were uncomfortable. There was trash in the stairway, and the carpet on the landing was filthy. Stay somewhere else.2018-08-20"

"This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. The room was clean and had a microwave, fridge, coffee maker, and hair dryer. The only issue was that my room was right next to an AC that turned on and off throughout the night. Pleasant front desk clerks. The restaurant was a bit expensive, but the food and service were good. 2018-04-02"

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.
