"We stayed at this hotel twice in one week. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to the Regency Suite, which was glorious. It was spotless, and we enjoyed the gas fireplace and whirlpool. The front desk clerks and valets were extremely friendly, efficient, and quite helpful. Even the housekeepers smiled each time we saw them. We asked for a firm pillow, and when we returned, there were 3 pillows to choose from. Not a cookie-cutter hotel; this place has character.2018-04-20"
"The hotel was beautiful, regal, and clean. The employees were extremely friendly, and everyone greeted us with a smile. The housekeepers were personable. My only complaint was that the bed was too soft. Lunch at the lounge was good and affordable, but dinner seemed overpriced. We had a wonderful experience and are returning soon.2018-04-10"

"Great location. Nice room with comfortable beds and pillows. There was a good view of the city and waterfront. The only issue was old seafood that had been in the fridge, and the odor was intense. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Our reservation didn't include a free breakfast, but they kindly added it on anyway; it was delicious. We enjoyed a drink in the bar by the fireplace in the evening. 2021-12-27"

"Easy access to town. The room was clean. The motel staff was great, especially the front desk clerks. Easy check-in. The exterior needed cleaning and upkeep; the parking was littered with trash and cigarette butts. Nothing fancy, but worth the inexpensive price.2019-10-15"

"The hotel room was nice and had thoughtful furnishings. The staff was helpful. The only negative was that my room wasn't ready when I arrived at 11 PM; it was clean, but all the drawers were open. I was immediately given a new room, so it worked out fine.2019-10-19"

"Amazing hotel room with a great bed. Breakfast was good. Stay here; it's the best.2016-05-17"
"Our room was clean, but the bed was too soft and sagged. The hand-held showerhead was broken off the wall, and the toilet paper holder was broken. The exhaust fan in the bathroom didn't work. The hotel clerks were kind and knowledgeable. The parking lot was full, and it was extremely hard to find a spot when we returned from dinner. Breakfast was good and had lots of variety, but some of the hot items at breakfast were cold. We couldn't find our waitress and had to ask the hostess to warm items in the microwave, and then the waitress appeared and handed us our check before we'd even taken a bite of food. Items at the bar were overpriced. Consider other options.2020-02-17"

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.
