I wasn't convinced that the bedsheets were clean. The toilet in the public restroom was dirty, and the paper towel holder was broken. Nothing was good. Don't stay here.2020-02-27"

"The hotel was convenient, and the airport shuttle was a plus. The room was clean, and the front desk clerks were friendly. I ate at Urbana, and it was a disappointment. The woman making my dessert put whipped cream on her hand and then put her hand in her mouth. I left an item behind and called and left a message about it with the housekeeping supervisor. After 4 calls, I have yet to hear back from her.2019-09-11"

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.
