"The TV in my room didn't work for most of my 4-day stay. The phone in the room didn't work, either. The hotel elevator didn't work, and my room was on the 2nd floor. The milk at breakfast was bad. On a positive note, the housekeeping was good, and the front desk clerks were nice, understanding, and apologetic. Don't have high expectations if you stay here.2022-08-22"

"I had a hard time finding the hotel going south on Route 17; needed better signage. Room was clean, but if the bed were any higher, I would've needed a stool to get in it. The employees were wonderful and helpful. Appreciated the breakfast and coffee. You'll love this hotel.2015-04-01"
"The room smelled strange, and there was a black stain on the blanket. We saw a roach, too. I called the front desk; the clerk said they don't have roaches and wanted to come to the room to see it. I said no because it was late and the roach had already run away. Needless to say, we didn't sleep well. The motel clerks were nice, but I don't recommend staying at this motel.2020-03-11"

"The exterior was deceiving; the interior of this hotel needed a facelift. The floor was dirty, the carpets were nasty, and the stairs needed waxing. It was not appealing.2015-09-25"

"The hotel was clean and quiet, and we were impressed with the room. Our only complaint was that the only mirror in our 2-bedroom suite was in the bathroom. Great employees and breakfast, and a pool and exercise room were available. We were happy overall.2016-10-06"
"The hotel was clean, and the suite was nicely furnished. The only mirror was in the bathroom, which was inconvenient with 3 people in the room. No exhaust fan in the bathroom.2015-09-22"
"Nice hotel, but the pet fee was excessive. Won't stay here again.2015-09-15"

"The bottom sheet on our bed didn't fit properly, so I woke up to find the mattress pad and sheet crumpled in the middle of the bed. In the morning I asked to have the problem fixed, but the same thing happened that night. It turned out that the housekeeper hadn't put the mattress pad strap under the mattress. Better training was obviously needed. There was only one desk chair in the room, so it was hard to watch TV comfortably. Don't recommend this hotel.2016-03-08"
"Everything about my hotel stay was great.2018-07-01"

"The hotel let my medium-sized dog stay and waived the pet fee. Five stars just for that. The hotel seemed to be working on updating the rooms. The check-in and checkout clerks were courteous and professional. I'd stay here again. Bring your own doggie supplies since there were no waste bags provided.2016-03-08"

"A pretty, comfortable hotel. Excellent service. Definitely stay here.2015-09-23"
"The hotel was clean, but the AC in our room didn't work. The front desk clerk was sweet and tried to fix it, but it still didn't work. She said she'd arrange for a room change, but never came back.

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.
