"The AC leaked water on the balcony, which was littered with cigarette butts. The bathtub in our room wasn't clean, and a flooding issue forced some guests to be relocated; our floor smelled like raw sewage. Only an apology was offered. The bathrooms in the lobby also smelled like sewage. This hotel was not worth the price.2016-08-15"

"The hotel lobby and exterior were attractive, but the room left a lot to be desired. The bed was comfortable, but the furniture looked like it was from the 1960s, and the chairs were uncomfortable. The sink and shelves underneath looked hand-made, and the towel rack was rusty. Nice shower, though. The hair dryer only blew cold air, so it took forever to dry my hair. Breakfast was tasty, but the eggs and sausage were cold. I was disappointed and don't recommend staying here.2021-05-22"

"I had to change rooms 4 times. The floor and AC in the 1st room were filthy. A roach ran out. I asked to have the room cleaned, but was told that housekeeping was gone for the day. The 2nd room also had a dirty floor. The 3rd room was clean, but the stairway to the room was blocked with caution tape; I had to go a long way with my luggage. The 4th room was clean, but I so a roach. I asked for more toilet paper but was told there wasn't any; I was offered facial tissue instead. A housekeeper arrived and said she'd get some, but it took 45 minutes for it to be brought to my room. Don't stay at this motel.2020-10-02"

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.
