"Good rates. The hotel was huge. Our room was old and needed updating, but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. Nice indoor pool. The bar location was uncomfortable since people walked by the tables to get to their rooms and the dining area. The bartender provided good service. No vending machines, and the snacks were expensive. Decent breakfast.2018-12-06"
"The room was clean, but the hotel wasn't well-maintained. The room number plaque was on the floor, and the paint on the bathroom ceiling was peeling. The elevators seemed dirty. Average breakfast fare. Stay here only as a last resort.2017-04-26"
"The hotel looked nice. The staff was friendly, but I was traveling with my elderly father, and we were given a room far from the lobby. The check-in clerks didn't tell us that there was another entrance near our room, even though they saw my father walking with difficulty. I slept on the sofa bed; the mattress cover wasn't clean, and there wasn't enough bedding. I had to go to the front desk to get some. We left early in the morning, and another guest came out and shouted at us to be quiet. I wouldn't stay here again.2019-07-01"

Needed some renovation, but the location was great, and the room was clean and comfortable. Small bathroom. The staff was nice to us. The on-site bar was too small.2015-04-20"
"No one was at the front desk when we arrived, so we had to call the hotel to get assistance. The clerk who arrived was rude and unprofessional. Room was dirty and smelled bad. The floor hadn't been vacuumed and the furniture was dirty. We didn't stay.2015-02-16"
"The hotel room was run-down and smelled so strongly of mildew that it made us nauseous, but no other rooms were available. The only thing the staff offered was carpet deodorizer. There was trash in the garbage can, and items from previous guests in the bathroom. There were bugs in the room and in the linens. We had a miserable stay.2018-10-16"

"There was loud music playing in the reception area of the hotel. The clerk couldn't find my reservation due to computer problems, and I had to wait while she checked in other people and then finally found my information. I had to ask where we could sit and wait. No chair or sofa in the room. There was scum in the whirlpool. I really liked Graham's restaurant and the staff, though.2016-04-14"

"Significant amounts of concrete fell from the bottom of the 2nd floor walkways down onto the 1st floor walkways, and there were no warning signs or roped off areas. The WiFi didn't work 3 of the 5 nights I stayed. The rates were attractive, but quality and safety were issues at this motel.2020-03-07"

"Close to MU. The hotel was in a quiet area but close to the highway exit. The room was a bit too warm when we first arrived, but it had attractive, comfortable furnishings.

The restaurant waitress was friendly and efficient, and breakfast was adequate and tasty. I highly recommend staying here.2018-04-08"

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.
