"The room wasn't serviced the 2nd day; I reported it several times before a housekeeper came at 8:30 PM when I had a guest. She spent 30 minutes cleaning, which was an intrusion on my privacy. Try another hotel.2018-01-19"

"Good location, but the motel was noisy and the room had mice. Stay someplace better.2016-05-01"
"Not a very safe area, and other guests were noisy. There was a gap around our room door, so we had to stuff towels under it to keep out bugs and cold air. The room had roaches. We requested a fridge in our room for medication, but never got one. No ironing board, either. The microwave sparked and smoked. The TV had exposed wires and no remote control. No water pressure in the shower. Don't stay at this motel.2016-03-29"

"I've stayed all over America, and this was the worst motel I've stayed in. The 1st room had stagnant water under the bathtub from a leak. The TV buttons didn't work, and the WiFi signal didn't reach the room. The 2nd room had cigarette burns on the bedding and around the room. My guitar amp went missing from my room. Don't stay here.2019-10-21"
"This was without a doubt the worst motel I've ever stayed in. No remote control for the TV, and the TV buttons didn't work. There was only one working electrical outlet in the entire room. No towels or shower curtain when I arrived. I don't recommend staying here.2016-10-31"

"The hotel clerks barely spoke to us and made us feel unwelcome. Our room was in the front of the building, and we heard a lot of traffic noise. The pillows left a lot to be desired. At least the bathroom was clean. Stay somewhere else.2016-05-22"
"We loved this hotel. The atmosphere was nice, and the room was super clean and organized. Well-stocked with towels and coffee. Highly recommend.2015-05-27"

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.
