"My stay at this hotel was incredibly disappointing. The room smelled bad. The walls were dirty, there were stains on the ceiling, and the bedsheets didn't look clean. Had to pay for guaranteed valet parking in the garage across the street, but I found my car parked illegally near the valet area instead of in the garage. I expected better for the price.2016-01-04"

"We were put on the concierge floor, but never told about the amenities. The TV remote control didn't work, and the toilet was stopped up. Both were taken care of by management. The pillows were way too big. The next day, the AC leaked all over the floor and we had to move to the 16th floor. No one helped us with our move, and we're in our 80s. The hotel manager was nice and gave us a discount, but I'm not sure we'd stay again.2015-05-11"

"When we arrived at the hotel, there was nowhere to park and nowhere to unload the car. We didn't stay.2017-03-10"

"Not far from VCU. The motel was cheap, but you get what you pay for. The room was nicely laid out and had new flooring. The bed was terrible, though; one side was so bad that I could feel the springs. Rude people yelled and talked loudly outside my room at 3 AM. The checkout clerk was nice and apologized for the rude people. I wouldn't stay here again.2019-12-21"

There was lettuce in the microwave, and the dresser was small and had missing handles. There was hair in the bathtub. Check-in was easy. Adequate parking and good exterior lighting. I wouldn't recommend staying here more than one night.2019-09-23"

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.
