"Nice hotel right on Lake Superior. The whirlpool was handy after a long day of hiking, and there were a few fire pits that were nice for relaxing at sunset.2021-05-31"
"The hotel room was clean, and the staff was friendly. It took 3 tries to get a room where we didn't hear barking dogs. The employees were accommodating and assisted with each move, and apologized for the inconvenience.2017-10-17"
"We arrived at the hotel after 9 hours on the road, checked in and went out to dinner. When we returned, we found the TV didn't work. We called the front desk and were told someone would be up in 5 minutes to fix it. After waiting 20 minutes, we went to the front desk and got results. The person who came to the room wasn't able to fix the problem but was apologetic. The morning clerk didn't know about the issue, but when we returned from an outing, the TV worked. We wouldn't stay here again.2019-07-23"

"The hotel room was small for the price, but the AC worked well and the beds were OK. The garbage cans weren't lined. We heard a lot of noise in the bathroom. Parking was a mess; I parked out back on a steep hill. I'll try to find something more affordable next time.2017-09-03"

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.
