"Beautiful old hotel, but ants were taking over the bathroom. The wall-mounted heater made almost as much racket as the guests that confused our room for theirs, and kept returning to try their key in our door. Very disappointed that there was no coffee when we got up, and we'd have to wait hours for any until someone arrived and brewed some. Excellent restaurant, but sleep somewhere else.2015-03-11"
"This hotel wasn't worth the price. The AC was extremely loud when it came on, but the room was nice and clean. Every time I walked by the front desk, the clerk was eating. The elevator was shaky and seemed to be in need of repairs. Breakfast cost $10 per person, and drinks from the vending machine cost $3. Only had valet parking for $15.2019-09-08"

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.
