"The bed was extremely comfortable, but the hotel room wasn't as clean as it should have been. The chair was old and had a big cigarette burn. The AC and desk chair had spots on them. The light switches were dirty. Everything else was good. The customer service was great.2022-08-16"
"The carpeting in the room and common areas was filthy, and I never saw an elevator. The cranberry juice at breakfast was more like cranberry syrup. The only good thing about my hotel stay was the nice, clean bed.2018-09-03"
"We were mostly happy with our hotel stay. The room was still being cleaned after we checked in, so the clerk gave us an upgraded room that was ready. The key card didn't work, so we had to return to the desk yet again to have it re-set. We were pleased with the room once we got settled in, and it was quiet. Our only complaint was that the paper coffee cups, which we didn't like using in the microwave to make tea.2018-11-08"

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.
