"The motel was OK, but there was a lot of trash in the parking lot. The shower curtain needed to be replaced.2019-09-11"
"My stay was a nightmare. The motel room was dirty, the coffee maker didn't work, and just one styrofoam cup was provided. We were only given two threadbare towels. The hair dryer didn't work. No AC in the lobby. Continental breakfast was some melted chocolate mini doughnuts. A horrible experience.2015-09-02"
"The rates were high considering that the motel was under construction. There was a fight outside my room one morning that scared me. The desk clerk just said there was nothing he could have done. By the time police arrived, the fight was over. Don't stay here.2021-02-14"
"The motel room smelled like cigarettes, and the furniture had cigarette burns. A woman asked if she could stay in my room until checkout, then asked if I had drugs to sell. Don't stay here.2016-08-13"
"I had to have my key card re-set every day to get back in the room. My room smelled like smoke, and even smelled like marijuana one day. I told the motel clerk, and he said all he could do was leave a note for the supervisor, and she implied I'd be charged if it smelled like smoke when I checked out. Poor service. Don't stay here.2016-04-14"
"OK rates. The motel was run-down, and the walls were stained. At least the bed was comfortable. Breakfast wasn't good. Just a place to sleep.2016-04-01"

"Convenient to downtown and close to several wine bars and classy restaurants. A great boutique hotel with nice, comfortable rooms.

"This was the best hotel experience I've ever had. The property was quirky and fun, and no detail was overlooked. 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. The continental breakfast was just right, and complimentary beer and wine were available in the evening. The $18 parking fee was well worth it, and the valets were prompt. Don't miss this gem.2018-12-02"

"Room was small, and the TV didn't work most of our stay. The repairman came to our room 3 times. A housekeeper entered our room without knocking while we were asleep. Bathroom door wouldn't shut properly. Completely awful stay, especially considering the rates. Don't stay at this hotel.2015-02-23"
"Disappointed that room service wasn't available one day of my stay because they were short-handed. Not what I wanted to hear considering the hotel rates.2015-02-11"

"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"

"Nice, clean hotel. Excellent room and breakfast, and the employees were friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed my stay and plan to return.2016-11-25"
"Located on the corner of a 6-lane road, so access was a bit tricky. The hotel was nice, clean, and relatively quiet considering my room faced a busy road. I could hear the traffic if I tried, but it was far from disturbing. Great place to stay.2016-03-25"
"I wasn't aware that the hotel was under renovation; I arrived at 3 AM, and it wasn't easy to find the entry. There was no one at the front desk, so I had to wait for someone to get there. Hammering and drilling noise woke me up when I was trying to rest. Breakfast was a refrigerated sausage biscuit I had to heat up.2019-08-06"

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.
