"Located near malls. Clean, great hotel for a short stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The fridge kept our drinks cold, and we heated up mini pizzas in the microwave.

"I've stayed at this hotel on previous trips, and it's generally nice and clean. The rooms are great, and the breakfast buffet is terrific. Wonderful housekeeping, and most of the employees are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, this time the clerk mistakenly cancelled my reservation and misplaced an urgent fax for me. I injured my back at the end of my 9-day stay and asked for a bellman to help me with my luggage. Someone knocked on my door, said, "Here's your cart," and seemed unwilling to help me. He had a terrible attitude, and when I tried to tip him $10, he took my $20 bill and said he "didn't do change." 2015-09-08"

Our 2nd stay, the room wasn't clean and the shower was falling apart. The drain was dirty, the drain cover was loose, and the shower floor was spongy and uneven. The parking lot was well-lit. Not a place to bring the family.2015-10-01"

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.
