"The hotel was dirty, and the walls in my room had stains all over them. Breakfast was terrible. The exterior smelled like garbage. Don't stay here.2019-10-16"
"The hotel was showing signs of age. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, but the wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling and the toilet ran continuously. We had to unplug the fridge because of an annoying ticking sound, and we could hear plumbing noises from surrounding rooms. There was no way to lower the room temperature without turning on the AC. The hotel seemed quite noisy at night. The exercise room was small but seemed new, and all the equipment worked well. Breakfast had a good selection, but the coffee cups were tiny. Definitely an adequate place for an overnight stay.2018-02-21"

"The motel was within walking distance of major malls. We were able to cook in our room, which was a high point. The front desk clerk wasn't informative about area attractions. We were visiting from another country, so some recommendations would've been nice.2015-08-24"

"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.

"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"

"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.
