"Worst hotel experience ever. I booked 2 rooms for 5 ladies. The toilet didn't work in the 1st room. The hotel clerk said there was no maintenance worker on-site, so we'd have to change rooms. There were no sheets for the sofa bed, and I had to go to the front desk and get them myself. I wanted a cup of coffee, but the coffee pot in the lobby was broken. The AC in the 2nd room didn't work, and again, there were no linens for the sofa bed, so another room change was necessary. The 3rd room had bedbugs. The clerk suggested we wash our clothes in hot water. Not a good stay.2018-11-26"
"The hotel was absolutely beautiful. Our room was near the elevator, but it was quiet. The bed was comfortable. Amazing staff; they were accommodating and greeted us each time we passed them. I enjoyed my stay very much.2015-10-13"
"Worst stay ever. The hotel was badly in need of updating. The carpet was dirty and smelled like mildew. I had to request towels and go to the front desk to get them. We left early.2022-11-28"
"The room was really nice, the service was great, and the food was good. Stay at this hotel.2021-04-08"
"My "non-smoking" hotel room had obviously been smoked in. There was no control over people in the pool; my granddaughter and I couldn't go swimming or even eat downstairs because of all the loud people. I was disappointed.2017-09-05"

"The room was small, the bed was bad, and the pillowcase wasn't clean. The AC wouldn't go below 72 degrees. Find another hotel.2017-07-26"
"The hotel wasn't what I expected, and the room was small for the price, though it was clean. The bathroom was uncomfortably small, and there was no counter space. Nice personnel. Breakfast would've been good if items had been replenished.2017-05-20"

"The motel was dirty. The carpet and chair in my room were horrible, and there was mold in the bathroom. Not enough towels provided, and we had to call several times to get more. Poor customer service overall. When I went to breakfast, employees were hanging out and eating.2017-06-08"
"A poor experience. The only positive was being able to check in early. The dresser and headboard in our motel room were thick with dust, and the electrical outlet was hidden behind the nightstand. The wireless Internet, cable TV, and phone didn't work. When the phone did work, nobody answered the front desk phone, and when I went down, no one came to the desk. I gave up after 15 minutes. There was hair in the bathtub. It's a cheap place, and you get what you pay for.2017-04-25"

"My hotel room was more humid than it was outside, even with the AC on. The phone was out of service, and there was no maintenance staff on duty at night. No one answered the front desk phone, so I had to go downstairs if I needed anything. The smoke alarm in my room went off in the middle of the night, so I had to get dressed, go to the front desk, and request a room change. Keep driving.2019-06-01"

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.
