"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"

"Nice view of the lake from our room, but we couldn't go to the water because of a sign saying the bridge had bees. The towels were small, rough, stained, and had holes in them. The wall in the lobby bathroom was damaged. No pamphlets available about area attractions. The motel clerk seemed miserable. The staff at the attached restaurant and bar was friendly.2017-08-08"

"The 1st hotel room wasn't ready; there were bags of garbage on the floor, and there were no towels or toilet paper.

"The hotel lobby was noticeably clean, and the front desk clerk was nice. She even called our room to make sure everything was OK. I liked having a kitchen in the room. My only complaint was that only one roll of toilet paper was provided. We had to call and ask for another roll. 2023-02-07"

"Good experience overall. I couldn't figure out how to turn on the heater, but the hotel staff was helpful. There were noisy people on our floor, which made it difficult to sleep. Ask for a quiet floor, and you have to adjust the heat from the unit by the window.2021-01-11"

"We were given a pet friendly room, though we didn't request one and weren't traveling with a pet. Our room was in a basement area; the windows were above ground, but we definitely felt like it was a basement and there were several steps to get to it. Despite assurances from the hotel clerk, we could smell pet odors and a strong odor of cleaning products. We requested a room change but were charged extra for it. The toilet was awkwardly close to the bathroom door, and we kept banging into it. The clerks were friendly enough, but I wouldn't recommend staying here.2018-12-03"
"The hotel room was fairly clean, but I found a pacifier under the bed. Easy check-in, and I was given a $10 voucher for the on-site restaurant. Above-average continental breakfast. Stay here.2016-07-21"

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.
