"Not a 5-star hotel. The room smelled musty, and there was a dead bug in the freezer. The kitchen wasn't that clean. On a positive note, there was plenty of hot water for showers, pets were allowed, and the customer service was good.2018-05-24"
"Good location, but there was a lot of road construction when I stayed. The room could've used a little remodeling and new carpeting, but the hotel clerks were friendly and the amenities were nice.2018-11-26"
"There was a lot of noise above our room late at night; I called the motel clerk, but the noise continued for another 30 minutes. I went to the front desk and heard the clerk called the room. The noise finally stopped, but started again at 5:30 AM.2021-03-29"
"The hotel was a bit difficult to find, but it was worth the effort. It was clean and cozy, but a bit small. The staff gave us a room near an exit door to accommodate our service dog. The room was spacious, with comfortable beds and a good-sized bathroom. 2 free bottles of water were provided. Breakfast was hot and plentiful. The dining area was small, but the tables were well-spaced.2022-05-26"
"Staying at this hotel was a wonderful experience. The room was pretty and comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The pet fee was high, though, so my pet had to stay in my vehicle.2017-11-17"
"Quiet and close to the freeway. The room was OK, but the fridge, microwave, and coffee pot were all plugged into one surge protector. The fridge didn't work until I unplugged the microwave. We requested a cot, but never got one. Breakfast was just OK. Water in a dispenser with fruit slices wasn't changed all day. The hotel clerk was nice and cleaned off guests' car windows with an ice scraper.2022-01-27"
"Not a good value. The room was awful; it was dark, with old furniture, and the beds seemed small. I had to sleep sitting up on the sofa due to an injury, and it was uncomfortable. Don't stay at this hotel; the only good thing about it was the bag of complimentary ice.2023-06-05"
"Close to restaurants, and convenient access to I-40. Good room, but the bathroom had a musty smell. The motel clerk was nice and polite, and got a room ready when I arrived so I could check in quickly.2022-08-01"
"Not a good area. The motel was run-down and wasn't clean. The front desk clerk wasn't helpful at all with directions. The employees were rude and unaccommodating. Find another place to stay.2022-03-14"
"The hotel was clean enough and updating was underway. The clerk was friendly and helpful, but the room was run-down. No cots available. The hallways reeked of cigarette smoke; luckily, the room didn't. The back entrance didn't lock, so the building wasn't secure. I wouldn't stay here again.2021-01-05"

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.
