"The room looked nice and was clean, and the beds were comfortable. The pool heater didn't work during our 4-day stay, and the whirlpool wasn't warm enough and the jets didn't work.

"This hotel is a great choice. It's about equal distance from Ohio River activities and Ark Encounter. The rates were reasonable, and the hotel was comfortable and secure. The TV in the room was large, but there were limited free channels. The beds were comfortable but quite high for children and the elderly. We were able to check-in by phone.

"There wasn't a good exhaust fan in the bathroom, so it took a long time to dehumidify. No counter space for toiletries, and the sink could've been cleaner. There was another sink outside the bathroom, and it had limited counter space and a microwave. Good service and breakfast. No safe place to walk around the hotel since there was no sidewalk. There was an adjacent park, but I couldn't figure out how to access it. 2021-07-24"

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.
