"The hotel room was clean and nice. I let the staff know we'd be checking in late; when I entered the lobby after midnight, there was no one there. I waited for 15 minutes. The clerk was pleasant when she turned up. We were given a room far from the front desk, and the key card didn't work, so we had to return to the desk. Turned out we had to turn the doorknob up, not down; it would have been nice to have been told that.2021-10-01"

The whirlpool was too hot, and it had a scum line. The bathroom door wouldn't close. The entire experience was bad. We moved to another hotel the next day.2015-08-25"
"This hotel could've been better. The toilet overflowed our 1st night; I tried to call the front desk, but the phone didn't work, so I had to go downstairs. I found the clerks outside smoking instead of at the desk. Breakfast didn't have much to choose from. I wouldn't stay here again.2015-07-16"
"Great hotel stay. The room was clean, the temperature was perfect, and the beds were comfortable. There was an AC, but we were happy it wasn't on when we arrived since the weather was cool. There was ample closet space and room for storing luggage. There was an elevator, and a continental breakfast was provided. Plenty of parking. There was a nice cafe, Fryin' Pan, just a few blocks away, and it was open 24 hours a day.2021-05-24"

"The hotel room wasn't particularly clean. The bedding was stained and worn. No tissue in the dispenser. No coffee cups in the room. The Internet connection was poor. Check-in and checkout clerks seemed more interested in doing laundry than helping guests. Don't recommend.2015-08-02"

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.
