"The room was spacious and clean but dated. The beds were a bit creaky, but the linens were fresh. I loved the coffee maker in the room and the coffee bar downstairs. Quick check-in and checkout, and I was pleasantly surprised by a call from the hotel clerk to make sure everything was OK. The hallways felt claustrophobic and needed updating, and the carpet in the elevator was disgusting. Still, this is a perfectly good choice for people visiting Bucknell.2015-09-29"

"The hotel room was clean, and the beds were comfortable, but other things were sub-par. The TV didn't work; I called the front desk and a nice girl came up, but she was unable to fix it. I called again and was told it was due to a storm. No soap for the shower.2020-08-11"
"Good rates. The motel staff was friendly, but I was disappointed that there were no outdoor chairs outside the room. 2021-07-15"
"I was disappointed with this motel. I never got a coffee pot, though I requested one both days of my stay. There was old food in the fridge, and soap scum in the shower. The staff said it would be taken care of, but that never happened. The bed was clean, but I wasn't impressed.2020-12-16"

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.
