"The hotel was dirty, and the room smelled bad. There were clothes in the dresser from a previous guest, and there was dirt behind the dresser and nightstand. The shower didn't drain well, so I showered in standing water. I was charged $1 for a safe I didn't use, and when I asked to have the charge removed, the clerk said, "Nope" and walked away. I'd drive an hour to stay somewhere else.2021-06-15"

"Not worth the price. The hotel staff was nice, but the room was not. No doorstop, so the doorknob had knocked a hole in the wall. The furniture was worn, there were marks over the bed, and there was mildew under the bath mat. The toilet didn't flush well. Stay away.2015-08-11"

"The hotel was old and the room needed some updating, but it was really clean. We had trouble with the room key opening one door, but it wasn't a big deal to walk back to the main entrance. The hotel clerk had to get us a new TV remote control. Guests left a mess in the pool area; there were towels and garbage everywhere. No breakfast because of Covid.2021-05-13"

"Can't beat the price. I liked being in a motel with parking near the room door. Nice room, open and clean. The bed was comfortable. Appreciated the pet-friendly policy and lack of pet fees, and the checkout time of noon. No breakfast provided, but coffee, tea, and hot chocolate were available. I'd certainly stay here again.2015-03-26"

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.
