"The hotel clerks were courteous and helpful, but the room was extremely dusty, the furniture was old and chipped, and the lampshades were stained and torn. The sofa had so much hair on the cushions that it was disgusting. The fridge was dirty, and the sink didn't drain well. The pool was closed for maintenance during our stay.

The TV didn't work one night and morning of our stay. We complained several times, but nothing was done. The coffee in the breakfast room was weak. This hotel stay was a terrible experience.2015-05-05"
"The hotel was in serious need of renovation. It was tired and dirty. Thankfully the room wasn't carpeted, but it smelled musty. The bedding was clean. No towels in the room, so I had to go to the front desk to get some. Breakfast was in a regular room with a bed and frame stacked against the wall.

The drapes were dirty, and there was nowhere to plug in the alarm clock. The fridge made such a loud humming noise that I had to turn it off. The TV didn't work. Only 1 of 3 lightbulbs by the sink worked, and the sink had a large crack. There was hair in the bathtub. When I returned the next day, many of the issues had been taken care of.

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.
