"When I arrived at the hotel, the staff was outside smoking, which made a bad first impression. The check-in clerk didn't look at me or address me directly. My room was on the 2nd floor by the stairway, and I heard loud noise from the hallway. The towels were discolored, and the bathroom wasn't that clean. Find a better place to stay.2017-09-06"
"The 1st hotel room wasn't ready; there were bags of garbage on the floor, and there were no towels or toilet paper. We were moved to another room, but it smelled musty so we went back to the 1st room. No quarters available for the laundry room; I had to go across the street to a gas station to get some.2017-10-16"

"The hotel was clean, but we had some issues. One of the queen beds was broken, and nothing was done about it even though we reported the problem. The wireless Internet connection was so slow it was useless. Our room key was deactivated the last day of our stay. The staff was fine, but we were disappointed.2017-07-25"

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.
