"The hotel room was old and smelled musty. It took a long time to get hot water.2019-09-03"
"The hotel was undergoing renovations, so the lobby wasn't appealing. There was only one clerk at the front desk; I tried calling 3 times from the road, and no one ever answered the phone. No AC in the elevator, so it felt like a sauna. The pillows were horrible; we both woke up with sore necks. Don't stay here until renovations are complete.2019-07-09"

Half the TV channels were fuzzy; we called about the problem, but no one came to fix it. I tried to call the front desk at night, and no one ever answered. Couldn't connect to the Internet.

We told the front desk clerk, but nothing had been done about it when we returned. We complained about the cold room, and eventually a maintenance worker came and replaced the entire unit. The curtains didn't adequately block out the light, so it was hard to sleep. Don't stay here.2015-10-29"

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.
