"We arrived at the hotel an hour after check-in, but our room wasn't ready. After waiting another 15 minutes, the clerk said it still wasn't ready and gave us a different room type. I wasn't impressed with the room; it was smaller than I wanted and right by the highway. On a positive note, the bartender was nice. Don't stay here.2020-02-16"

"The hotel was clean and modern. Needed an exhaust fan in the bathroom. The staff was attentive. I wish the door from the parking area were kept locked. The pool wasn't in service, but we got a courtesy pass for the hotel down the road. Great on-site restaurant. Parking was expensive. We had no real complaints.2016-04-29"
"The hotel entrance was hard to find. The key card didn't work, but the room was nice. There were plenty of charging ports, but few electrical outlets. There was only one plastic cup and a few disposable coffee cups. Not enough garbage cans. The heating and cooling unit was noisy, but other than that, the room was quiet. The staff was pleasant enough, but wouldn't recommend any restaurant except the one on-site.2021-09-19"

"The room was clean other than the dirty carpet. The AC didn't work; we had to call twice before someone came to fix it, but he was nice. We woke up to a warm room, but were given free parking and breakfast as compensation. The hotel employees were nice, professional, and friendly. I'd stay here again because of them.2018-06-21"

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.
