"The room keys worked once, and then I had to go find a hotel clerk to get into our room. The bed was like sleeping on foam-covered plywood, and the shower had poor water pressure. OK for a quick stay.2017-08-27"
"Good hotel stay. The bed was extremely comfortable. No on-site breakfast, but I got a $2.50 voucher for the restaurant next door.2021-07-10"
"The hotel was located at the far end of town, and the trolley didn't stop there. The shuttle did take us within 2 blocks of the trolley stop, but we waited over an hour and the trolley never came. The front desk clerks were pleasant and extremely helpful. The continental breakfast was in one building, and the buffet breakfast was in another. If you have mobility issues, this isn't the place for you.2018-09-18"
"Great experience. The hotel was centrally located. Clean room with comfortable beds. The view in back was of a rock wall. The golf cart driver was the best part of our stay, but the housekeepers were also friendly. The front desk clerks seemed weary. The only ice machine was on the 1st floor. Lots of parking.2018-08-13"
"Nice hotel, and the rates were fair. Check-in was on the 2nd floor, but there were no signs to let us know. I wasn't impressed that a sheet of paper was left under my door asking if I wanted to book a room for the next year for twice the price we paid. No complaints other than that.2018-08-15"
"I was not happy about our hotel stay. The TV cord had been pulled from the wall, and it took all night to fix it. Our room was by the pool, and we heard a lot of noise. The AC blew right on the bed so it was too cold, but when we turned it off, it was too hot. The noise from the pool was really loud.2019-09-29"
"The room smelled bad, and the carpet was badly soiled. There was a truck running all night right outside my window. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful.2017-06-03"
"A nice, clean, pet-friendly hotel. The room had a fridge. Pleasant personnel. We enjoyed our stay.2016-07-15"
"Decent value. The hotel needed some repairs, but it was fine for our needs. Good, odor-free room. The pool was small but nice for my grandchildren, and it even had an accessible lift. Awesome breakfast.2016-06-07"
"Easy access to town and the freeway. The 1st floor rooms had access to the hallway and parking lot, which was convenient. The bed was comfortable, and the hotel had a nice little outdoor pool.2018-07-05"
"The hotel room was a bit outdated, but it was clean and comfortable. Pleasant check-in. I had a nice stay.2015-10-06"
"The hotel was extremely comfortable, and the staff was outstanding. If you're traveling to the Crazy Horse Memorial or Mt. Rushmore, they're helpful with information about the most scenic route.2015-04-09"

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.
