"The 1st room was dirty and had roaches in the bathroom. There was food under the bed, and the door didn't lock from the inside. We were moved to a cleaner room the 2nd night, but the carpet was worn. Nice hotel clerks. Not a good place to stay.2016-06-21"
"The hotel needed upgrading. The AC was great and the room was clean, but it was a little shabby. There were multiple torn lampshades, and the bed sagged on one side. Holes in the walls were patched but unfinished. Got a little bar of soap and rough towels. Good staff, though.2015-06-14"

"The room was excellent and comfortable, and breakfast was one of the best we've had at a hotel. Stay here; it's great.2016-10-30"
"There was trash behind the bedside table in my hotel room, and gum under the lampshade. Beautiful staircase. The whirlpool was out of order. The printer was a big help with our boarding passes, but the computers had a distasteful picture on the home screen. I appreciated the late checkout, but the checkout clerk was non-verbal and not friendly.2016-04-20"

"The motel was in a quiet area. Great for the price, but bring your own drinks and snacks. The room was clean. Water drained to the parking spots by my room. There was only one ice machine, and the vending machines were out of order or didn't work.2017-08-08"

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.
