"I expected better. My 1st impression of the hotel was the dusty lamps and moldy grout in the bathtub. Housekeeping was obviously lacking. The TV was analog, and there was an open bottle of shampoo in the bathroom. Management was clearly more concerned with saving money than making guests feel comfortable. Stay away.2018-06-09"

"Nice hotel, and the price was right. The room was clean and quiet, but I was disappointed that I had to re-program the remote whenever I turned off the TV. The staff was attentive. Lovely breakfast. A kind man from the housekeeping staff helped me load my car, which was greatly appreciated.2016-07-01"

"The room was clean, pleasant, and spacious enough for 6 people. Good lighting, and we liked having a microwave and fridge. Loved the walk-in shower. We were on the 1st floor across from the pool, but it was quiet. 10% off at CJ's Restaurant if you present your hotel key. Stay here.2018-02-01"

"Good experience. The motel was centrally located, with good access to the battlefield and restaurants. I'm not disabled, but was put in a handicap room on the 3rd floor; I wondered how a disabled person would escape in the event of a fire. The employees were friendly and helpful.

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.
