"There was a dirty plastic knife in the fridge when we arrived, and a shirt behind the fridge. The toiletries were used. Housekeeping skipped our room altogether one day. No anti-slip mat in the bathtub, so it was good that there was a grab bar. We checked out a day early and don't recommend this hotel.2016-10-17"

"This hotel met my standards for the price I paid. Don't use the elevator.2015-03-09"
"I had trouble getting on the bed because it was so high. There was no table in the room for dining, and nowhere for room service to put my food. I was told the shuttle service had been discontinued, but there was a shuttle bus parked in front. Don't stay here.2019-06-23"

"Worth the price. The hotel was a bit run-down, but the room was comfortable and the staff was welcoming and responsive. It smelled like something was burning when I turned on the heater. Bring your own food.2020-10-31"
"Close to the convention center. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the bed was amazing, and the staff was accommodating. The pool was open and clean. Limited menu, so familiarize yourself with local restaurants.2019-08-19"

"A horrible experience. The hotel room was dirty and smelled like smoke, and there were beer bottles under the bed and ottoman. The chair was in poor condition, and the coffee pot was broken. There was no shower curtain. We've stayed here a number of times with no problem, but this room wasn't acceptable.2017-12-28"
"The hotel clerk was accommodating, especially considering my 4:15 AM arrival time.2015-10-20"
"There was a large group of visiting children at the hotel, and they were screaming and running wild in the hallways early in the morning. I called the front desk twice to complain and even tried to speak to the childrens' chaperones, but nothing was done. Don't stay here.2019-08-05"
"The hotel was clean, and the staff was extremely pleasant. My room had a broken closet door, so I was given another room. I was disappointed that the pool and whirlpool were out of service and the printer was broken. 2017-08-23"
"The hotel was clean, and the staff was nice and helpful. The WiFi wasn't working, though.2020-10-18"
"Centrally located hotel; across the street from the theater. Beautiful room, and the bed was almost too comfortable. The cups were dirty, though. Staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. When they found out it was my birthday, they upgraded our room for free. When we misplaced our concert tickets, the valet ran back to our car and found them. Nearby restaurants were expensive, but we had food delivered from Filippio's, and it was affordable and delicious. In-room bottled water was warm and cost $4, but cold water was available in the vending machines for less.2015-03-10"

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.
