"The room was small, and the hotel staff was rude. I had to hunt down the valet, who was usually inside talking to the clerks. Bad experience.2018-10-05"
"The hotel was downtown, and it was a bit of a challenge to access because of construction and one-way streets. The room was nice, but the AC was on a timer activated by a motion detector; I spent the entire night waving my arm in the air to keep it functioning. The Bistro was a little expensive.2018-08-30"

"The room was nice and clean, and the lounge and late-night cookie bar were wonderful. No bathrobes, though. Great room service. We called twice and waited an hour for the shuttle to pick us up, and finally gave up. Couldn't sit at the outdoor tables without people asking for money. No parking. I wouldn't stay here again.2017-05-16"

"Nice hotel stay. The room was pleasant and had a city view. All the employees were polite and friendly. Easy check-in and checkout. The only negative was that the bar stopped serving food too early. We returned from a concert at 10 PM, and only nuts were available.2016-04-10"

"Located in the heart of downtown. The hotel was clean, and the complimentary breakfast was great. No luggage carts, so we had to carry our bags ourselves; the front desk clerk wasn't concerned. The ice machine on the 4th floor didn't work. No coffee cups were available the last morning of our stay. Only had valet parking, and the entry was narrow.2017-11-15"

Homeless people came in the lobby and argued, and there was no security to be found. Parking was valet only. Don't stay here.2019-02-10"
"The hotel staff was polite and helpful. Make sure you get a parking pass. No in and out privileges.2018-12-17"
"I've never had such a bad experience at a hotel. The carpet in our room was damp and smelled awful, and the AC vent in the ceiling leaked all over the vanity area. The next night there was a fraternity banquet, and we've never seen so many loud, drunk, and disrespectful kids. We got no sleep thanks to the noise and knocking on our door at 3 AM. There was vomit in the elevator, and empty bottles everywhere. The valet said we'd have to wait 45 minutes for our car. I left our number, but the manager has yet to call us. Stay somewhere else.2018-12-06"
"We didn't get the bar code for the parking garage at check-in and got billed an extra $10 for parking, but everything else about the hotel was great. Make sure you get the parking bar code at check-in.2018-08-18"

"This hotel was contemporary in style; if you like traditional hotels, this isn't the place for you. Nice staff. The pool was about the size of a postage stamp. No covered parking. Had a short-order kitchen, but no formal restaurant.2015-08-16"

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.
