"The motel was clean and adequate for our needs, and the view was outstanding. But if you're looking for luxury, you won't be happy. The front desk clerk wasn't very nice, but she did put us in a smoke-free room.2015-08-14"
"Well-maintained hotel with nice rooms and pleasant employees. Stay here.2015-06-11"
"The hotel room was great, but the rates were pretty high. Despite a sign on the side door to keep it closed and locked, it was repeatedly propped open and left that way. The restaurant was closed, and there were no quick meal options in the area. The continental breakfast was just a bottle of water, packaged muffins, and a granola bar.2022-09-25"
"The hotel room was clean, and the location was perfect since I just needed a day of rest. There was no security, though, and only one clerk on duty at night. The clerks were phenomenal, but I feared for their safety. Breakfast was good. Limited snacks and beverages available for a reasonable price. Some restaurants delivered, but many were closed on Monday.2019-04-22"
"Our room was more than sufficient for our needs. We were pleased with the amenities. We accidentally left our car lights on and drained the battery, but the front desk clerk came to our rescue and gave us a jump. She was very pleasant and didn't hesitate to help. I recommend this hotel.2015-06-13"
"A cool motel in a beautiful area. The rates were reasonable. There were towels for the bikers, and the amenities were good considering Covid-19. The only issue I had was that the sink and bathtub didn't drain well. It was nice having rocking chairs outside the rooms. The employees were pleasant and professional.2020-08-11"

"Great location by a creek. Good rates. The motel was older, but it was a good place to stay. The employees were nice and helpful.2017-04-26"
"The accommodations were nice, but we had trouble with the motel management's handling of an issue we had our last night. There were people being loud in the hallway, and they ignored our request to quiet down. We called the front desk repeatedly about it, but nothing was done until we threatened to call 911.2016-06-09"
"Great location, but the rates seemed too high. Older, dreary motel, but the room was clean and well-maintained. The front desk clerks were polite. Small pool, but the workout room was appreciated. Adequate breakfast and nice dining room staff. I was extremely disappointed that there was no elevator.2016-06-07"
"Motel staff accommodated all our preferences since we were traveling with an infant. Get a creek view room.2015-02-22"

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.
