"I had a horrible stay at this motel. The 1st room had stained carpeting, dirty bedsheets, and a dirty bathroom. We were given another room, but there were blood stains on the bed. The doorknob fell off the door. We were moved to a 3rd room, but the doorknob fell off the door of that room as well.

The TV didn't work, but our stay was so short that it wasn't a problem. We told the manager, though, and were pleasantly surprised to be offered a discount. We've stayed at this hotel before, and it's always been most satisfactory.2015-12-04"

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.
