"Cheap motel. Close to Western Blvd., where all the stores and restaurants are. About 30 miles from TopSail Beach. Good service. The pool was right in the middle of the parking lot. Breakfast was provided, and pets were allowed for a fee.2019-07-03"
"Convenient to restaurants, Starbucks, and Target. Lovely accommodations and staff. The room was clean and spacious and smelled nice. Nice complimentary breakfast and happy hour with hot appetizers, beer, and wine. I was pleased with this hotel and highly recommend it.2016-06-25"
"The hotel didn't provide room keys; the staff had to let guests in. The fridge in my room didn't work. The WiFi didn't work well, but the front desk clerk said I could use her hotspot. The pool was dirty and there was barely any water in it. Stay elsewhere.2021-09-20"
"Close to restaurants and shops. The hotel was clean, the staff was helpful, and breakfast was great. On a negative note, the toilet was too close to the wall. No ice maker on the 2nd floor. Only one elevator worked. We've already booked our next stay.2023-05-31"
"The motel didn't look like online photos. The room smelled like cigarette smoke and mold, and the curtains were falling down. The bathroom fixtures were loose, and the floor was sticky. All the caulking needed to be re-done, and the bottom of the toilet needed cleaning. My experience was horrible.2022-07-19"

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.
