"The room was clean and comfortable. The lobby was small and uninviting. I got lost and needed directions to the hotel, but no one answered the phone. When I arrived and mentioned it, the clerk said they'd been busy, then took a call while waiting on me.2018-01-23"

"The motel was due for a major renovation; the carpeting, furniture, and paint were all more than worn out. The shower water fluctuated between hot and cold. The staff did the best they could considering the age and condition of the property. I suggest finding another place to stay.2017-06-20"

"The entire motel was dingy and felt creepy. Our room was falling apart, though it was clean. The wallpaper was peeling and the carpet was stained. All the furniture was scratched and banged up, and the alarm clock was from the '80s and didn't work. There were holes in the bedsheets. The mini-fridge was cemented into the corner of the room. We could readily enter the adjoining room. When we turned on one of the lamps, it began to smoke from dust build-up. The large whirlpool bathtub was old and stained, and all the plumbing fixtures had rust. Even the continental breakfast was bad. This place had no saving grace.2015-03-05"
"Motel was affordable, nice, and clean.2015-02-17"

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.
