"The room wasn't that clean, and the toilet didn't flush, so we were given another room. The TV remote control didn't work, so the hotel clerk brought us another one, and it worked well. The fire alarm went off at 3 AM, and 5 fire trucks arrived. We were evacuated and had to stand outside for over 90 minutes due to a fire in the furnace. Great beds and good breakfast.2021-04-05"

"We've been staying at this hotel for years when visiting family. We love the outdoor area, the pool, and whirlpool. We were unhappy this time; the condition of the property is declining. The AC didn't work well. The common area rugs were dirty, and the whirlpool jets didn't work. There was something in the whirlpool, but after telling the front desk clerk, she didn't warn others not to use it.2021-10-13"

The room smelled a bit musty, but the bed was comfortable. I heard some noise from the room next door. Small bathroom. The continental breakfast was fine, and the attendant was friendly and kept things stocked.2015-10-20"

"An average hotel for the price. It didn't seem well-kept. The room curtains were wrinkled and falling off the rods. The shower drain smelled like sewer gad until I filled the trap with water. The cover of the exhaust fan was missing. The area around the ice machine smelled really bad. If you can afford it, stay somewhere else.2020-02-13"
"The hotel room smelled like dogs, but the staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast area was too small.2018-05-24"
"Expect very little at this hotel. Our key cards kept malfunctioning. The housekeeper walked in the room before we had time to answer her knock. The AC was set to 62 degrees when we arrived. Poor wireless Internet connection; we had to track down someone to re-set the router. The employees were grumpy and seemed more interested in smoke breaks than in helping guests. The pool had so much chlorine in it that even the kids wouldn't swim, and the whirlpool and exercise room were out of service. Breakfast wasn't good. We won't be back.2017-08-03"

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.
