"Nothing in my motel room worked. The lights were burned out, the stove fan didn't work, and there was trash under the bed. The staff didn't answer the phone when I called, and the key card stopped working after the 1st night.2016-11-02"
"The motel was a bit out of the way. The 1st room smelled strongly of smoke, so I asked for a room change. The 2nd room had a strong mint smell, but that was acceptable. The room was a little worn and didn't have the best soundproofing, but I didn't expect much else for the price. The motel was fine for a place to sleep, but I wouldn't want my daughter to stay there by herself.2015-05-04"
"Affordable motel, but housekeeping was awful. We asked for a 1st floor room and were put in a pet room, even though we didn't have a pet. The carpet smelled like urine, and there was old garbage under the sink. I asked for a room change the next day, and was given a room that had been flooded. There were socks hanging in the bathroom. So for the 3rd time, we moved to another room.2015-04-03"

We were enthusiastically greeted by the check-in clerk, who promptly asked if I'd prefer a local beer or wine with my caramel popcorn treat. The beds and pillows were also locally made and were like sleeping on a cloud. Wonderful customer service and southern hospitality.

I wasn't happy and don't recommend staying here.2018-04-17"

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.
