"The hotel was within walking distance of both the basketball and baseball stadiums. We felt safer on 2nd Street at night since there were plenty of restaurants and bars, whereas everything on 3rd Street was closed at night. The room was clean, and we liked the easy underground parking.2018-03-22"
"Our hotel stay was OK, but there were issues with the plumbing. Every time the toilet was flushed or the sink water was turned off, there was a thud in the from the pipes in the wall. I liked the Keurig coffee maker. Parking was expensive.2016-09-08"

"The 1st room was disgusting and reeked of smoke. We were moved to another room the next day, and it was amazing. The hotel clerk went above and beyond to make up for the 1st night. Everything was fine until we ordered room service; my husband's carrot cake had mold in it. The employees in the eating area were incredibly rude and yelled at me when I asked for a cup of coffee and then offered to get it myself. Don't stay here.2016-12-04"

Service was non-existent, and the hotel clerks were curt. Don't stay here.2016-09-18"
"The hotel was low-class. I was initially given the wrong room, so I had to return to the front desk. The heater in the 2nd room didn't work, and there were problems with the key card and fridge. The decor was outdated, and the carpet was wrinkled. The room had a coffee maker, tiny microwave, and small fridge, but there were no kitchen utensils. The elevators didn't work well, and one was shut down. The manager was never available, though the front desk clerks did their best to address my complaints. I was never told about hotel amenities, and stumbled upon the exercise room the last day of my stay. I wouldn't stay here for more than a day or two. Not many restaurants nearby.2020-01-01"

"I didn't like this motel. We didn't get rooms next to each other as requested, and I didn't like being given a handicap room. The door didn't close properly, the AC didn't adequately cool the room, the bathroom door didn't close, and the curtains were falling down. Don't stay here.2019-10-23"

There was only one vending machine, and it only had drinks. I wouldn't stay here again.2018-10-22"

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.
