"Good rates for a holiday weekend. The hotel room was warm, even after we left the AC running. The front desk clerk said maintenance would look at it, but the room was still warm when we returned. We asked for a room change and the staff was happy to accommodate us.2017-11-28"

"Hotel was under renovation. Room was clean and the beds were great. Poor lighting in the bathroom. I'd stay again.2015-04-16"
"I've stayed at this hotel many times over the last 15 years. The employees are different every visit, and the vending machines have never worked. The carpeting is ancient and dirty, and the room furniture is in poor condition. The toilet in my room didn't flush well, and the tank cover was a weird plastic thing. The bathtub wasn't clean. No breakfast because of Covid. If you're a construction worker looking for a cheap room, this place is OK, but I'd never bring a woman here.2020-11-30"

"Good value. We had a problem with the room key, but it was quickly resolved. The staff was cheerful, and the hotel was pet-friendly.

"Everything was fine. This hotel gets two thumbs up. Go for it.2019-10-19"
"A terrible experience. The TV in our hotel room didn't work. The AC didn't work, either; someone had to come fix it. Only 1 towel provided for 3 people. We found bedbugs, and there was blood on the bathroom floor. Don't stay here.2019-06-13"
"Everything was provided. Breakfast was excellent. I recommend this hotel.2019-03-04"
"The hotel room was great, but we were disappointed with the breakfast. There was no hot food, and the juice machine wasn't working. I was able to get some cranberry juice, but it wasn't cold and the ice machine was on the 2nd floor.2022-04-27"

"The motel was older but comfortable and well-appointed. Excellent handicap room. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. Outstanding customer service, and dogs were welcome. There were clearly marked pet areas.2017-09-11"
"The hotel was new, shiny, and bright. Construction was no impediment to having a good stay. The room was large, and the Keurig coffee maker was a nice touch. The TV remote control didn't work; a staff member got everything else working. The fitted bedsheet was too small. It took a long time for the shower water to get hot. The shower water ran onto the floor. The staff bent over backwards to be helpful and pleasant. The $12 breakfast buffet was overpriced. Stay somewhere else.2022-08-28"

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.
