"The hotel was clean and attractive, and located in a safe area on top of a hill. It felt isolated. My only complaint was the lack of coffee service and the careless personnel; I asked for a wake-up call and never got one. The employees were invisible and unhelpful.2021-03-23"
"The hotel room was humid, and the AC didn't work. I called the front desk and the AC turned on at 3:09 AM.

Not a good place to stay.2019-07-13"

It said there was a grab and go breakfast, but there wasn't. The exercise room was locked, and I was told it wasn't available. I complained to the front desk clerk and said I'd post a poor review.

"This hotel needed a complete remodel and updating. The room and bedding were extremely clean, and the bed was comfortable. But the paint had a film of smoke residue on it, and the AC didn't work well. It was like being in a sauna. The bathtub was worn and had missing enamel, and there was mildew on the mirror.

"The hotel ambiance was open and friendly. The lobby was clean, and coffee was available 24 hours a day. The bed and bedding were comfortable. There was an issue with the curtain in our room, but a clerk gave us clothespins to keep them shut. No housekeeping the next day. We appreciated being able to buy soda, juice, and snacks.

She couldn't unlock it, and neither could the housekeepers; finally she got it open using a screwdriver, but it made my stay stressful since I was traveling alone with a toddler and just wanted to sleep. I got $10 as reimbursement. Don't stay here.2016-08-25"

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.
