"Everything was good except our hotel room smelled like cat urine. We had trouble sleeping because of it, even after I sprayed perfume all over the room.2016-11-05"
"The hotel was a bit pricey. The room was clean, but the entire 4th floor smelled musty and felt damp. The housekeeper was friendly, and even styled our stuffed animal into our favorite blanket, and left us a nice note. Good, plentiful breakfast. Vending machine prices were reasonable.2015-06-30"
"The toilets were clogged and ran all night, and no maintenance was available until morning. Clean room. The pool was cold. But breakfast was awesome. I'd definitely come back to this hotel.2015-06-29"

"I could hardly get the room door open, and the shower didn't function properly. The windows were filthy, the carpet was stained, and the refrigerator was dented. The only positive was the pool. Don't stay at this hotel.2015-10-01"
"Older hotel, and it seemed a little expensive for what was offered. The bed and pillows were comfortable. We had 2 rooms; one had poor water pressure in the shower, but the other was fine. Minimal continental breakfast, so we went out to eat. 2015-06-23"
"Clean hotel with nice employees. My stay was fine.2015-05-20"
"Low rates, and you get what you pay for. The motel was OK, but my room smelled like smoke and there was no mattress pad on the bed. There were absolutely no extras other than 2 tiny bars of soap and a tiny bottle of shampoo. The bathroom fan was obnoxiously loud. The check-in clerks were courteous, but we wouldn't stay here again.2017-09-19"

"Close to I-69, restaurants, and Harrah's Casino. The decor was dated, but everything was clean. The hotel staff was helpful and considerate; the clerk went out of her way to help me. The breakfast attendant was kind, and the food was prepared with safety precautions. 2021-07-17"
"A bath towel had fallen in the toilet bowl when we arrived, and the toilet made a loud, hammering noise when flushed. The pool heater was broken, so the water was too cold for swimming. The whirlpool was cold, too. We were extremely disappointed. Don't stay at this hotel.2015-10-13"
"Everything about my hotel stay was fine.2015-12-22"

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.
