"Nice walk to stores and restaurants on Main Street in town. My room had a great view, and the window opened. I asked for and was given a robe for my week-long stay. The bed was comfortable, and I slept well. Housekeeping was great, and so was the shuttle service. But the hotel clerks were often in the office instead of at the front desk, and there was no bell to ring. The revolving restaurant had a wonderful view, but the food was just OK.2016-09-17"

"The hotel room was nice, spotless, and reasonably priced. The housekeepers greeted me when I arrived. Parking in the ramp was free, and there was a handy skyway to the harbor and arenas.

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.
