Ask the owner for a tour of the lovely vegetable garden by the pool.2016-07-24"

"The motel was old, but it seemed to be in good condition and the room was recently renovated. In the evening we noticed a musty smell; I turned on the bathroom fan, which helped a bit. Later I found the ceiling was leaking in a number of places. The shower curtain didn't close properly, so water ended up on the floor. We told the checkout clerk; he said he'd pass on the information, but didn't take any notes. Don't stay here.2021-09-14"

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.
