"The hotel room was nice and clean. The bedding was fresh and included a mattress pad. However, I was disappointed that the pool water was cloudy and there were no towels. The pool room smelled like moldy flip-flops. We later found out someone had been sick in the pool, and it was closed the next day for cleaning.2018-05-11"
"The hotel was easy to access and close to restaurants and a Starbucks. Good place for the price, and pets were allowed. The soundproofing wasn't the best. I felt comfortable walking my dog alone at 10:30 PM in the grassy area around the property.2018-08-28"
"I was given the key to an already-occupied room. When I got a different room, 2 lights didn't work, there was hair in one of the beds, and the sheets on the other bed were stained. I wasted my money at this hotel.2023-07-21"
"No smoke alarm in the room. There was old food in the fridge. The bathroom was dirty, there were holes in the walls, and the tiles were falling off. The checkout clerk waited on people who came in after we did and made us wait, and we weren't asked how our stay was. Don't stay at this motel.2020-01-29"
"The hotel was run-down and had a foul odor. The shady people there made me feel so uncomfortable that I didn't feel safe and decided to leave. It was so dirty that I didn't want my kids lying on the bed. Find somewhere else to stay.2023-03-13"
"Nice location. The hotel was brand new and lovely and had lots of amenities like a microwave, fridge, free WiFi, pool, and exercise room. But plan to be nickel and dimed. We even had to pay extra for coffee pods. Breakfast wasn't free, though.2018-10-02"
"Our stay at this hotel was poor. Our room only had a twin bed. There was an overhead light, but no desk lamp. The TV wouldn't come on; we were told to unplug the cable box. There were no washcloths and only half a roll of toilet paper, and the hotel clerk said we'd have to go upstairs to get more. The bathtub didn't drain well. 2018-05-21"
"We weren't happy about the room not being serviced after our 1st night at the hotel. Not a horrible experience, but not the best. I'll look for another place to stay next time I visit Topeka.2017-04-28"

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.
