Some people cringe at the word Motel & can’t believe that someone could get the two confused. Good grief it is like the unwritten cardinal sin in the overnight stay world to get the two mixed up. Who knew? In case you were wondering...the difference is simple-A Hotel has rooms that open to the interior of the building, along a hallway, and is multi-storied while a Motel is a hotel designed for motorist. They are usually found off interstate exits and the rooms often have external doors that you can drive up to and park outside.
Personally, I don’t care whether I stay in a Hotel or a Motel as long as it clean. I have just had so many bad experiences with unclean stays. I think some of them where horror movie Motels. Very scary for this germaphobic. I would have to admit too that most of them fit the description of Motel.
What Hotel or Motel chain do you like to stay in when you travel?
