"Great hotel staff; they were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was overpriced.2016-03-22"
"We were disappointed that the pool and whirlpool were closed for an unknown reason. Only one restaurant was available. We ordered room service both mornings of our stay, and not enough silverware was provided. I booked the shuttle for the next morning, but it wasn't there and I had to make alternative arrangements. I specifically picked this hotel for the amenities, and was disappointed that they weren't all available. Don't stay here.2016-02-27"

"Nice, quiet hotel. Some paint on the walls was peeling. The room was clean and spacious, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Big, clean outdoor pool with nice scenery, and the indoor pool was also nice. The elevator was scary.2015-08-11"

"Easy access to the main highway and surrounding areas. The hotel was a little ragged and run-down, though it must have been quite nice in the past. The room was pleasant and affordable, and the staff was accommodating. The pool area wasn't great.2017-12-19"

"The hotel was clean, but it was extremely noisy on my floor at 5 AM, with loud talking and slamming doors. There were also constant thumping noises from the room below me. Nice staff, but when I called for a crib, I was told if they had one, they'd bring it up. No one ever did. No Do Not Enter sign for the door, and the housekeeper tried to enter our room at 8:30 AM. When I complained, the checkout clerk made excuses. I wouldn't stay again.2015-06-12"

"My 1st room was fine, but when I extended my stay, I had to move to another room. The bed was small and there was mold in the bathroom. I asked for another room, and it also had a small bed. The dishes were dirty, and the chair was stained. The hotel staff came and removed the dirty items.2015-08-10"

"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"
"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"

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.
