"The room was too small, and there was only 1 chair. Not enough linens provided. The sliding door in the bathroom didn't close all the way. The pool was over-chlorinated, and there were no towels in the pool area. I don't recommend this hotel.2022-04-13"

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"

"The hotel was clean and up-to-date and the room was nice, but the housekeepers were extremely noisy in the morning. The staff was friendly and efficient. The parking lot was full, so we had to park in a neighboring lot. Worst of all, the pool was closed due to construction, and we weren't informed before we arrived. The ice machine on our floor was out of order.2018-03-13"

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.
