"The hotel room was nice and looked newly remodeled, decorated, and furnished. I was impressed with the big ballroom, the fountain, and the breakfast area. We were able to use the lounge area for a family get-together, and the staff went above and beyond for us. All our expectations were more than exceeded. Be sure to try a fresh cookie at the front desk.2017-07-10"
"A quiet, wonderful hotel. Stay here.2017-05-16"
"A good, clean hotel, but the hotel clerk made a mistake entering my credit card information, which caused a delay at check-in. We weren't able to get rooms near our relatives as requested, and had to lug our baggage around trying to find our room. We weren't given any information about the hotel layout or breakfast. The clerk apologized repeatedly and hovered after the initial problems, which annoyed me.2016-10-06"
"Great rates. The room was clean, and the breakfast was good. We'll definitely stay again.2015-05-05"
"Inexpensive and close to restaurants, a gas station, and limited stores. Not too far from tourists sites. The hotel exterior looked new, but there were weeds in the parking lot. The carpet in the room was starting to curl, and the furniture looked worn. The bathroom was large but poorly designed. The light was at a bad angle, and the small sink was in a tight corner. That said, I got 2 great nights of sleep and had a hot shower each morning. Breakfast on Saturday didn't keep up with all the guests.2021-06-21"

"I was disappointed with my jacuzzi suite. The room door was open when I arrived. The toilet seat was dirty, and the ice bucket had a dirty bag in it. The whirlpool was dirty, and there was a dead cricket near it. The exterior door I was told to use had a broken handle. We decided not to stay at this hotel.2018-08-29"
"This hotel was terrible. The 1st room smelled strongly of smoke, though the hotel was supposedly smoke-free. We were moved to a 2nd room, but the coffee maker was filthy, the shower was dirty, and the shower curtain was falling down. There was rust in the exhaust vents, and trash in the garbage cans. Worst of all, we found a lighter and candy wrappers under the top bedsheet. We told the front desk clerk and went out, but we returned to find that the room hadn't been serviced. Don't stay here.2019-08-12"

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.
