"The hotel clerk was pleasant and helpful, but we were disappointed with our room. We were given a handicap room we didn't request. No fridge or drinking glasses. There were only a few chairs, and they weren't comfortable. There were water marks on the ceiling and black marks on the wall. The bedside table was sticky, and the sink drained slowly. I don't recommend staying here.2018-11-27"
"The hotel was clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. Nice front desk staff.2018-09-30"
"Our motel room had been recently painted, and the odor was so strong that we opened to windows. There was paint on the curtains and vanity surface. We tried to call the front desk at 2:30 AM about noisy neighbors, and the phone wasn't even plugged in. The employees were polite and friendly. The pool was green, and the only ice machine didn't work. The continental breakfast was fine. Don't stay here until renovations are complete.2016-07-19"
"The room, bathroom, and shower were clean and comfortable. The hotel clerk was helpful and a delight to deal with. He answered many questions and provided information about local restaurants. Breakfast was simple but ample. No elevator.2015-07-20"
"The hotel was dirty and only had two elevators at opposite ends of the building. I got stuck in one for 8 minutes, which was scary. The carpet in my room was filthy. The sand around the indoor pool wasn't removed, and there were weeds everywhere on the grounds.2018-08-31"
"Close to the beach. An older hotel that's showing its age, but the room was big and had lots of beds, and every room had a bay view. No dishes in the room, and bring your own paper products. Great place for families with kids, with both an indoor and outdoor pool. The hotel was understaffed, but the employees worked hard to meet the needs of guests. Check-in was slow, and the elevators took forever; we used the stairs most of the time.2018-08-01"
"There was a sticky mess on the bedside tables and dresser; I tried to clean it with warm water, but it wouldn't come off. The TV cable box was broken, so no TV. Water pressure in the shower was awful. The motel clerk said it would be taken care of, but it wasn't. Complained at checkout and got a shrug. Don't stay at this motel.2020-07-15"
"Not a good experience. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, but my room wasn't serviced after the 1st day. The service was poor.2019-11-04"
"Horrible motel. The staff woke me up at 1 AM because of a computer mix-up. Don't stay here.2016-05-11"
"Not easy to access, and no restaurants nearby. Motel wasn't that quiet, but the room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The vending machines were empty.2015-03-14"

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.
