"My hotel room looked like it hadn't been cleaned. One of the bed comforters was dirty, along with 2 of the towels. The bathtub wasn't clean, and the floor mat was stained. Dirt stuck to my foot as soon as I took off my sandals. I asked for a room change, but no other rooms were available. No housekeeping, so I had to go to the front desk for everything; I was given a broom, rag, and spray bottle to clean myself. I killed 2 spiders and a gnat.2021-08-15"

"Cheap and close to the naval base. The clerk wasn't welcoming or friendly. I appreciated the 10% discount for breakfast at the restaurant across from the hotel. Housekeeping only came by at 6 AM and 9 AM; we were in both times, so our room didn't get serviced. 2018-01-16"

"The hotel clerk wouldn't let me check in 15 minutes early, even though I'd been on the road for 15 hours. There was trash on the room floor. I went back to the front desk and complained, and we were given another room. The key didn't work, so I returned to the front desk and was given yet another room. When I woke up in the morning, I noticed that the bedsheets had dirty fingerprints on them. When I asked for fresh sheets, a man handed me some and I had to make the bed myself.2016-04-11"

"The 1st night was fine; the room was clean, and the beds and pillows were comfortable. The key card didn't work the 2nd night, and the hotel staff was rude when I went to have it re-set.

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.
