"Excellent location, but I didn't think the quality of the room was worth the price. The double beds were quite narrow, and the pillows were flat as a board. The hotel was nice, but one doesn't sleep in the lobby. Pleasant staff.2015-09-02"

"I arrived at the hotel very early, but the staff was friendly, accommodating, and got me in my room right away. The hot items at breakfast weren't kept hot, and the fruit looked canned instead of fresh. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.2015-11-12"

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.
