"Check-in at this hotel was scary. Two armed guards met our taxi in the parking area, and the lobby desk was shielded by bullet-proof glass. Two couples were arguing with the desk clerk. Think about staying somewhere else.2015-11-13"
"There were people hanging around the hotel. The lobby was dark, and there were electrical wires hanging from the ceiling; it looked like it was under construction. The fridge in our room was noisy, and so was the heater; it was hard to get any sleep. We couldn't wait to check out.2023-01-19"
"The hotel employees were cordial and helpful.2019-01-16"
"There was a leak in the kitchen, so I wasn't able to cook properly for 24 hours. The sofa bed was so uncomfortable that my business partner and I ended up sharing the king bed. Smaller weights in the exercise room would've been nice. Didn't like the disposable dishes at breakfast. Other than that, it was an OK hotel. The staff was nice.2015-11-12"
"Other guests on my floor were intoxicated and noisy all night. Lots of elevator traffic. I asked the front desk clerk to send someone up, but nothing was done. Stay somewhere else.2022-12-12"

"Average hotel. It wasn't what I expected. I probably wouldn't stay here again.2016-10-18"

"Nice hotel with friendly employees. Parking was adequate, but leave your car at the hotel if you can since parking in town is problematic.2015-11-22"
"The room was small, and the TV channel selection was limited. So was parking. Breakfast was good, though.2017-08-11"
"Far from everything in the city. I didn't feel safe staying at this hotel alone. There was a sign saying no visitors were allowed after 10 PM. There was a loud argument in the room next to mine. My non-smoking room reeked of smoke masked by some awful fragrance. Housekeeping didn't come by until 5 PM. Don't recommend staying here.2015-08-12"
"Fairly nice hotel in a kind of scary neighborhood. The hotel and room were small, but OK for an overnight stay. Nice breakfast buffet. Small lot, so parking was extremely limited.2015-07-10"
"We enjoyed staying at this hotel. The pool was a great plus for families with children, but the water wasn't warm enough. No bathrobes provided, and there was no fridge or microwave in the room.2018-01-16"

"An excellent hotel with attentive, courteous personnel. Go for it.2019-09-08"
"Quiet hotel. The beds were comfortable, and the shower was nice. All the employees were so nice and helpful. When I returned in the evening, the clerk asked if I'd had dinner and gave me a list of restaurants that deliver. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.2018-04-14"
"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 was nicely decorated, and the 24-hour coffee bar was a life-saver. However, the neighborhood wasn't the best and the streets were filthy and dangerous. Not enough parking, and 7 AM cleaning restrictions for much of the street parking.2016-10-07"

"A comfortable, quiet hotel with spacious rooms. Close to the subway station. I felt safe in the immediate neighborhood. The staff was helpful and very nice. They could help guests get anywhere in the city using public transportation. Nice gym next door, but it didn't have a pool. On-site dining was limited to vending machines and a complimentary breakfast, but there was a wonderful Mexican restaurant within walking distance, called Xochimilco Family Restaurant. I loved staying at this hotel.2015-06-28"
"The hotel clerk treated us so courteously. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.2017-10-10"
"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"
"We were disappointed that the hotel pool wasn't open during our stay.2015-04-24"
"Hotel seemed a bit expensive for what I got. Key card didn't work, so I had to return to the front desk and get that problem resolved. The room was way too warm, even with the heat turned off. All I got was one voucher for breakfast.2015-03-03"
"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"

"I had a pleasant hotel stay. The staff was really accommodating and polite. Nice place.2019-12-11"
"Close to the airport and reasonably priced. The motel was outdated, and the carpet in my room smelled bad. The light by the bed didn't work, and there was nowhere to plug in my cell phone since I didn't have an adapter. Spend a little more to get a good night's sleep.2019-08-26"
"A basic hotel. The beds were clean, but the room wasn't. Don't expect much.2017-08-02"

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.
