"The heater in our hotel room didn't work, there were no extra blankets or pillows, and the bathroom sink was clogged. The lovely front desk clerk moved us to another room. The continental breakfast was absolutely unacceptable. The checkout clerk was abrupt. Stay somewhere else.2023-04-05"
"The people in the room next door made noise all night; I called the front desk twice and even went down myself, but nothing was done. The room wasn't that clean, and the bottom of the shower curtain was dirty. The soda vending machine was broken. Breakfast was limited, and the coffee urn didn't work. Don't stay at this hotel.2022-08-20"
"A fairly new hotel in downtown Hamilton. Had a pool, exercise room, and parking garage. I particularly enjoyed the buffet dinner and hot breakfast. The city is right on Lake Ontario; take advantage of the many parks and water activities.2016-10-17"
"I didn't enjoy my stay at this hotel. The TV didn't work properly, and the staff just said it was an issue with the provider. Someone tracked mud in the hallway and stairway; I informed the staff, but it hadn't been cleaned hours later. The breakfast area was small and didn't have enough seating. I'd never stay here again and don't recommend it.2018-08-26"

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.
