How to Make a Motel or Hotel Reservation
Check rates and book a hotel reservation as far in advance of the departure date as possible. Hotels tend to raise rates as availability declines; however, it is possible to get a last minute deal. But in motel the rate usually same.
Use an online travel site to identify motels or hotels in the city you are visiting or near a specific attraction, address or airport or find hotel in certain places and there are lists you may serve. If you conscious of the pricing and going for budget trip then consider a motel accommodation instead.
Determine type of room and bed whether you need a standard room, one-bedroom, two-bedroom or something larger. You may call the motel or hotel contact no for more details.
Identify what amenities you need.
• In-room conveniences to consider include high-speed Internet, a refrigerator, a kitchen or kitchenette, and a pull-out sleeper sofa. Some hotels will bring a crib or cot into the room if you need it. Motels do not provide amenities like a hotel. Most will provide basic need only. Search on the motel website for details.
• Hotel amenities might include an indoor or outdoor pool, fitness center, business center, restaurants and room service.
Narrow down the list to one or two hotels with the amenities you need.
