"Convenient to shops. Our room was clean, but the cable TV kept freezing up and the buttons on the microwave didn't work. Check-in went smoothly and the staff was friendly, but the hotel was under renovation and the common areas looked dirty. The ice machine on the 2nd floor didn't work. Great selection at breakfast, though some of the hot food was cool. Try eating at Oscar & Joey's across the street.2017-02-21"

"My stay started out well, but then I found hair and sand in the bed. I didn't sleep well and slept on top of the covers. People partied on the balcony below us until 1 AM. Don't stay here.2018-08-28"
"My room wasn't clean, so I was moved to a room by exterior doors that banged every few minutes. I asked to change rooms again and ended up listening to people screaming until I finally gave up and left at 1 AM. There was an on-site bar and loud, intoxicated guests. The exterior doors didn't have locks, so I didn't feel safe. Avoid this place.2018-07-25"

"Good downtown location. The hotel staff was friendly, but I wasn't happy about being given a handicap room just because I'm a senior citizen. The closet bars were too low to the ground, and the peephole was unusable unless I was on my knees.2021-09-28"

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.
