"This hotel was horrendous. I requested an early check-in, but couldn't get into my room until after 8PM. The door wouldn't close or lock, so we had to prop a chair against it. No coffee maker, but there were 2 microwaves that didn't work. There was black mold in the bathroom vent and around the toilet paper holder and door. The drywall around the bathtub was cut away and pipes were exposed. No hot water. The paint around the door jambs was peeling, and there were exposed wires under the cabinet and sink. When we called to complain, the front desk clerk was extremely rude, and so was the maintenance man. We checked out and drove for 4 hours to get home. Don't stay here.2018-10-09"
"The room smelled terrible and had bugs. There were men hanging around the parking lot. Don't stay at this hotel.2015-06-22"
"The room was OK. I was disappointed that the indoor pool wasn't warm.2015-02-18"
"This hotel wasn't worth the price. The room needed a thorough cleaning. No fridge, and the heating and cooling system squealed terribly as it shut off. There was some painting underway, but a lot more maintenance was needed. The staff was courteous and helpful, but it didn't make up for the condition of the property.2019-12-21"

"Close to the historic district, Busch Gardens, and a lot of golf courses. The room was clean and pet-friendly, and the employees were helpful. I recommend this hotel.2015-04-06"
"Convenient location. The room was fine, but there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom. The hotel clerk was rather rude when I called before my stay with questions about the room. Other than that, this was a good choice.2018-03-12"
"Awesome experience. The hotel was very comfortable.2016-06-05"
"The floors in the hotel conference room were filthy and turned my daughter's new ballet slippers black. The fact that it's an older hotel is no excuse for the lack of cleanliness.2015-11-18"

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.
