"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"
"The hotel wasn't easy to spot at night. The room was clean. We woke up to fire alarms at 8 AM and had to rush outside. Never got a clear explanation from the staff about it. Not enough hot water for showers, and it took 10 minutes for the water to warm up. No restroom in the lobby. Breakfast was muffins and coffee.2017-03-19"

"The coffee maker in my room didn't have a carafe or coffee basket, and since there was only one clerk on duty, there was no one to bring me a replacement. The ice machines didn't work. I went to the breakfast room early to get coffee and study, but the staff wouldn't turn the lights on so I could see how to use the coffee machine. They did, however, come in and turn on a light in a nearby closet. Don't stay here.2018-11-20"
"An OK motel for the price. I felt fortunate to have a 1st floor handicap room. The room was large but had poor lighting, and there was no counter space in the bathroom. The beds were bouncy and too close to the walls. The shower was a joke, and the hand-held showerhead leaked all over. The toilet seat was loose.2018-05-03"

"Excellent location if you're visiting Palo Duro Canyon. Our room was nice and spacious, and the employees were all friendly and eager to help. Tasty breakfast with nice touches like fresh berries for the waffles and walnuts and dried cranberries for the oatmeal. The hotel was undergoing some renovations, but the work wasn't intrusive.2017-07-06"

"We liked the no-pet policy at this hotel. Adequate room. There was some traffic noise, but we were too tired to care. The shower door had been caulked many times but still had a gap and looked ugly. The check-in clerk was extremely friendly and helpful. Good breakfast with several choices. We were impressed and would stay again.2015-11-05"
"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 dining area was small, but the tables were well-spaced.2022-05-26"

"The hotel room was clean, but the decor wasn't warm or inviting.2021-03-28"
"Easy to access from I-40. The hotel was clean and quiet, and the staff was friendly. I didn't like the $25 security deposit. The room only had one chair, so one person had to sit on the bed. Good room heater, but the bathroom was cold. The shower door didn't close well, so water drained onto the floor. The squeeze bottles of soap are a problem for people with arthritis. Good breakfast.2021-01-15"

"Clean room. Nice variety at breakfast. The hotel clerks were so friendly; they made us feel welcomed.2019-06-27"

No facial tissue provided, and when we asked for some, we were told it wasn't available. The shower curtain was too high, so water leaked out. On a positive note, the staff is wonderful.2019-12-23"
"The hotel smelled bad. My room wasn't clean, and there were what looked like blood stains on the floor. The staff wasn't at all helpful; they acted inconvenienced whenever I asked anything, and stood in the back talking and laughing while I waited to check in and check out. I was disappointed to find that breakfast ended at 8:30 AM. I'll never stay here again.2018-12-11"
"An excellent hotel. I highly recommend staying here.2017-11-23"

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.
