"I had trouble finding the road to access the motel, and the sign was partially covered by vegetation.2016-10-25"
"Check-in took almost an hour and a half. The room had a variety of bugs. The mattresses were horribly stained and there were crumbs in the beds. This was the worst motel I've ever stayed in, and I don't recommend it.2016-08-17"
"This motel backed up to a swamp and a dump of some sort. It appeared that there were long-term residents, based on houseplants in windows and a shared kitchen with signs about cleaning up. The carpet had holes, and the showerhead was too low. The beds weren't too bad. The exterior doors were accessed with a key, but they weren't always closed. The parking lot had huge potholes, but at least orange cones marked them. Find another place to stay.2015-04-23"

"The hotel was quite large, and everything was a long walk away. The room was OK, but we're older and were put at the end of a very long hallway. We used a luggage cart and then had to return it to the front desk. The ice machine seemed like half a block from our room, and when we got to it, there was an Out of Order sign directing us to another ice machine about a block away. It was so inconvenient that we wouldn't stay here again.2022-04-23"

"My hotel room was kind of dirty. Saw dust and cobwebs in the corners, and the microwave clearly hadn't been cleaned.

"The front desk clerk was nice, but the motel and room were really dirty. No wastebasket in the room. The mattress and boxspring were smaller than the bed frame, and metal prongs stuck out. The chair and ottoman were filthy. I had to crawl under the desk to plug in the microwave. Don't stay here.2021-07-11"

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.
