The bed and pillows were less than comfortable. The shower drained slowly, and the knobs didn't work properly. No soap for the shower. Good dinner at the on-site restaurant. Stay here only if you need to be close to the convention center.2021-03-28"

"Great location. The room was beautiful and elegant. My only complaint was the lighting wasn't good for putting on makeup. Our window was by the fire escape. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Definitely a good place to stay, but ask for a room that's not right by the fire escape.2016-03-27"
"The hotel looked much better on the outside than on the inside. The room was old, and the floor was sticky. The heater smelled like something was burning. It took 40 minutes to check in, which was exhausting.2019-10-20"

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.
