"Nice, clean room, but there was no daily housekeeping service. The AC was noisy; tape was holding the cover on, and it rattled. The floor between the unit and the bed was soaking wet. No soap provided. The hotel staff was friendly. Great free breakfast, and coffee was available 24 hours a day. When I told the checkout clerk about the AC issues, she gave me a $50 discount.2022-09-19"

"The room smelled bad. The hotel clerk was rude and refused to help me up an high step to the sidewalk even though I'm handicapped. She said I couldn't have my service dog in the room. Don't stay here.2020-10-11"

"The room was small, and the AC was loud. It woke me up every time it cycled on. The TV was small. The mattresses were too firm. Nice bathroom, but the toilet didn't flush well. Ask for a room away from the traffic noise.2021-06-14"

"A bit difficult to find if you're not familiar with the area. Good rates. The hotel needed some attention. The room was clean enough, but the hallway windows were dirty. Breakfast was adequate.2016-08-16"
"We left this hotel after 1 night. We were initially given an already-occupied room. We asked for a smoke-free room, but the 2nd floor hallway was full of smoke. The 3rd floor was better. The lightbulbs in the lamps in the room were burned out. The toilet didn't flush, and we never saw a housekeeper. After 2 calls to the front desk, someone finally came at 11PM but was unable to fix the toilet. The staff said it would be taken care of the next day. There was a rusty AC in a wheelbarrow in front of our room door during our stay. No spoons at breakfast for yogurt and cereal. The toaster didn't work well. Avoid this place like the plague.2016-04-23"

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.
