"This was our worst hotel stay ever. The AC in our room barely worked, the alarm clock was from the 1960s, and there was no hot water. We told the front desk clerks; they said they'd call maintenance, but we never saw any maintenance workers. The room had 2 fridges, neither of which worked well, and the cabinet was dirty. The room wasn't carpeted. The hallways had dirty carpeting and scuffed walls. The vending machine in the hallway was empty, and the ceiling above it was torn out. We left early in the morning. Don't stay here.2019-09-25"

"The hotel room was clean, the view was excellent, and the bed was comfortable. The front desk service was exceptional; the clerks handled all inquiries and problems in a friendly, courteous manner. The amenities looked great, but we didn't have time to use them. OK food at the restaurant, but the menu was limited. No continental breakfast. We were charged for an extra day of parking because of a late checkout, but we were able to sort that out. We recommend staying here.2019-07-21"

"A decent hotel, but don't expect too much. The carpeting was smelly and looked unclean. The vending machine on the 4th floor didn't work during my 4-day stay, and no information was provided about other options. Housekeeping didn't answer the phone after 6 PM. The front desk clerks were courteous, and so were the housekeepers.2017-09-19"

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.
