"The room wasn't ready at check-in, but the staff was apologetic. They were polite and helpful when I asked about dining and transportation. The desk in the room was sticky. Only 1 set of towels provided for 4 people; we were able to get more at the front desk, but the large ones were damp. We had to manually flush the toilet. Breakfast was chaotic, and the morning staff seemed overwhelmed. The garbage can was overflowing, and many items were missing when we arrived. The tables and chairs needed a good cleaning. I wouldn't recommend this hotel.2022-06-07"

"An average place. The hotel didn't allow cash payment. The entry door wouldn't open, and I had to get help to open and fix it. It still slammed shut, and my room was right next to it. When I turned on the heater, the smoke alarm went off. The fridge wasn't cold enough. The mattress was worn and lumpy, and the pillows were too small. No exhaust fan in the bathroom, and the bathroom needed a fresh coat of paint. The front desk clerk was friendly.2021-11-04"

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.
