"The motel employees were friendly and nice, but this wasn't our best experience. The room smelled like stale smoke, and there were cigarette holes in one of the bedspreads. The carafe was missing from the coffee machine. I had to get a staff member to show me how to operate the shower. 2022-10-27"
"There was gum stuck on the bedposts, and there were bugs in the bathroom. I wouldn't stay at this motel again.2016-09-29"
"Nice hotel for the price. Clean, updated room. The beds were comfortable and had plenty of pillows, and the bathroom was exceptionally clean. The only negative was the people sitting on the outside stairs to smoke. We asked for a late checkout, and were bothered 3 times by people wanting to see if we were still there. If you're looking for a quality room for an affordable rate, this is a great choice.2021-07-14"
"This hotel wasn't the nicest place to stay, and it seemed overpriced. There was dog hair all over the room. The shower and shower curtain were dirty, and the toilet wasn't bolted to the floor. Don't stay here.2017-05-09"
"The hotel was located in a run-down area, and is run by very frugal management. The room had a microwave and fridge. No blanket on the bed, and no extra toilet paper provided. Paint was peeling off the shower walls. Nice, clean outdoor pool. The only working ice machine sat in an inch of standing water. No water available in the vending machine. Continental breakfast wasn't edible, and no coffee condiments were available.2015-09-08"
"Room smelled terrible - bedsheets and bedspread had holes in them - electrical outlets barely worked and didn't hold plugs well - not enough towels provided - bathtub didn't drain well, and there was no hot water for showers - not happy with my stay.2012-07-01"

"The hotel was OK, but ask for a room away from the highway.2019-10-24"
"Nice hotel. The room was clean, and the updated bathroom was great. Road noise was loud on the back side of the building, so ask for a room on the front side.2018-07-29"
"A clean, upscale hotel, and just 3 miles from the airport. We were offered a room upgrade when we checked in. The lobby and suite were spacious and immaculate. I wish we'd had time to enjoy the exercise room and indoor pool. The hot breakfast was great, but there were no gluten-free options.2018-06-20"

"The hotel was missing basic amenities. The beds were too soft, and we found a previous guest's pants in the closet. No exhaust fan or make-up mirror in the bathroom. We felt that the rates were too high due to a concert event in town.2019-07-30"
"The hotel was conveniently located, and the room, bed, and pillows were comfortable. Great breakfast options. 2015-11-19"

"Great location, with lots of fast-food restaurants within walking distance. Clean, updated room. The staff was nice and customer-oriented. Nice, clean pool and whirlpool. The trolley stopped right outside the hotel and went to Cincinnati, Newport, and Covington. We didn't have to use our car all weekend, and the attached parking garage was free.

"The hotel was overpriced and merely adequate. I requested a lower-floor room, but was put on the 12th floor, where there was no ice machine. The room was small and had 2 non-working phones. The bed and pillows were less than comfortable. The shower drained slowly, and the knobs didn't work properly. No soap for the shower. Good dinner at the on-site restaurant. Stay here only if you need to be close to the convention center.2021-03-28"

We stayed on New Year's Eve, and the people in the next room partied in their room and the hallway until 4:30 AM. It took 30 minutes to get our car from the valet.2017-01-03"

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.
