"Our room was in what looked like a recent addition to the hotel. The room was nice enough, but the TV was at an uncomfortable angle for viewing from the bed. No grab bar in the shower. Breakfast was lukewarm, and the attendant was more interested in conversing with guests than attending to her duties.2018-04-25"
"The 1st room was dirty. The floor wasn't swept, nothing was wiped off, and the toilet wasn't clean. I asked for another room, but it was just as bad. We got our money back and left. Don't stay at this hotel.2021-07-11"
"The customer service at this hotel was non-existent. There was no one at the front desk when I arrived; I had to ring the bell 3 times and waited about a half hour before someone finally came and checked us in. We had trouble with the Internet access code we were given, and I was told I'd have to call tech support myself. Our keys didn't work for the exercise room, and neither did the clerk's key. Maintenance had to be called. Don't stay here.2018-11-25"

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.
