"Too expensive for the lack of amenities. The hotel room was dark; there wasn't even enough light to put on make-up. The clock was so small that we didn't notice it for several hours. There was nowhere to store clothes, just a short bar for hangers. 2022-10-12"

"I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was small and didn't have much counter space. Friendly staff and good eating area. There was a Red Lobster restaurant in the same parking lot. Ask for a room away from the highway.2015-10-14"
"Nice hotel for the price. The room looked upgraded. The front desk clerk was courteous. Red Lobster restaurant nearby.2015-07-14"

"Great location. The room needed a cosmetic makeover. The hotel staff was helpful. I told the waiter at breakfast that I have a gluten allergy, and he had no idea what I was talking about. It cost $4.50 for a glass of juice or a cup of tea. We had a good overnight stay.2016-05-12"

"Great location. The hotel was clean, and the staff was personable. Breakfast was included, and coffee was available. I was pleased.2023-09-21"
"The hotel was fine for a short stay, but the AC in the room wasn't working when we arrived. I called the front desk, and someone came and fixed it. Not enough dishes or silverware provided. No restaurants within walking distance. Ask for a room in the back of the building, away from the highway.2023-09-16"
"Our studio suite was comfortable, roomy, and well-equipped. We liked the galley kitchen. The pillows weren't great, though, and there was no TV channel guide.2021-02-20"
"We checked in at 4 PM and found the the room wasn't ready and the housekeeper was sitting on the bed. We went down to the bar for a while. When we went back to the room, it had been given to another guest. The lights and AC in the 2nd room didn't work. We've stayed at this hotel 3 times, and it's gone downhill each time. We won't stay here again.2022-10-19"
"Nice location less than a minute from Rte. 17. Our studio was comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated, and we liked being on the 1st floor near the pool, front desk, and breakfast area. The housekeeper noticed a bit of blood on my husband's pillowcase from home and took it to wash, which was very thoughtful. The hotel clerk was helpful and friendly. The small pool was dirty, and the water was cloudy. Get to breakfast early, especially on weekends; it was crowded and the table and floor got dirty quickly. The food was slow to be replenished.2019-07-31"
"Good hotel in a great location. Better vacuuming was needed, but that was the only negative.2018-07-02"
"The hotel was right off the expressway, and the exit led directly to the expressway, which I didn't like. The room was too warm. There were never enough towels; I had to call or go get them.2017-12-02"
"Not the nicest location, but it was easy to access. The hotel was dated, and the room and bathroom were too small for the 4 of us. Didn't like the layout; no window in the room except to the hallway. Breakfast was OK, but the eating area was too small. Don't recommend.2015-08-11"
"The hotel room was too warm when we arrived; when we turned down the thermostat, the temperature went up. The front desk staff wasn't helpful in addressing the matter. The shuttle only had one drop-off and pickup point. The cookies were dry. Consider alternatives.2019-04-16"
"The hotel was rough around the edges, and there were chips in the walls. The room hadn't had a deep cleaning for a long time. The property was difficult to find and even more difficult to enter the parking lot. Don't stay here.2021-08-23"
"The hotel was comfortable and an excellent place to stay.2018-11-27"

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.
