"A horrible hotel. The 1st room was full of garbage bags full of linens and towels, and the bed wasn't made. The 2nd room was filthy, and the water pressure in the shower was terrible. Don't stay here.2021-08-14"
"The hotel clerks were friendly, and gave me a toothbrush since I'd forgotten mine. Decent continental breakfast.2021-03-03"
"This was my 2nd stay at this hotel, which is tucked away from the highway away from traffic noise. I was upgraded to a suite that was very clean. The front desk clerks were prompt and friendly. The exercise room didn't have any free weights, but the hotel has a relationship with a nearby gym that has weights. I recommend staying here.2016-12-16"
"Close to an Olive Garden and Country Restaurant, and about 5 miles off the interstate. It was tucked away in a quiet, serene location. The hotel was clean, and the front desk clerks were helpful. They directed me to a running path just feet from the property. There was a workout room on-site as well as a pool and whirlpool. Breakfast included hot and cold selections. I highly recommend staying here if you're flying out of O'Hare.2016-06-13"

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.
