"The hotel entrance had no sign and was through a Wendy's parking lot on a pot-holed dirt drive. The carpet hadn't been vacuumed, and the entry floor was so greasy our shoes slid. There were holes in the upholstered sofa, and stuffing was coming out of holes in the bed comforter. The floor lamp plug was broken, and the night stand lamp shades were, too. The complimentary breakfast looked OK, but was lukewarm and had to be microwaved. Sleep in your car.2023-03-05"

"An average hotel. The location was convenient, but it was close to the airport and there was a lot of plane noise. The room smelled funny, even after I got an air freshener. The soundproofing was poor. Terrible housekeeping; I was gone from 7 AM - 4 PM each day, and sometimes came back and my room hadn't been serviced. They didn't turn up until 6 or 7 some days. I waited at the front desk for 20 minutes before someone came to check me out. OK place for a short stay, but I don't recommend it for an extended stay.2019-04-29"

"Although the motel room was nice, we didn't sleep well because there were some drunk men arguing by our door late at night. The smoke alarm started beeping at 4:40 AM, so we had to have someone come to the room and remove it. Ask for a room on the 2nd floor.2021-12-06"

"The hotel was near Keesler and close to the main road, so we heard a lot of sirens throughout our stay. The room was big enough for our family of 5, and the bathtub was giant. Great staff, and the complimentary breakfast was a plus.2016-11-29"

"Nice hotel, but it was a bit difficult to access since it was tucked behind restaurants and stores. The room was really clean and had good features. One issue was that the bathroom shelf was too close to the electrical outlets, and I had trouble figuring out how to turn off the faucet. The staff was pleasant and wore masks, which I appreciated. I recommend staying here.2020-08-23"

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.
