Don't stay here.2015-10-20"

On my 3rd day, they arranged for my son to stay in the suite next to me, and had it ready before check-in time. Good selection at the continental breakfast, and there were great restaurants across the driveway. Couldn't ask for better. Highly recommend.2015-08-07"
"When we pulled back the bedsheets, we saw that the bottom sheet was stained. The front desk clerk said it would be replaced immediately, but when we returned in the evening, it hadn't been done. We called the hotel clerk again and ended up having to go to the front desk, get the sheets, and change the bedding ourselves. Housekeeping didn't replenish the in-room coffee or cups. Don't stay here.2022-03-29"

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.
