How to Choose the Best Hotels Near Me

If you're looking for hotels near me, you may be wondering how to find the best hotels possible. To narrow down your search and ensure you have the best trip possible, take a look at these tips.


Search for Specific Criteria


When you're looking for hotels near me online, try using a very specific search. Instead of just searching for hotels, do a search for the exact area where you want to stay. For example, if you plan to stay in a certain part of town, search for a phrase such as "hotels off highway 11" or "hotels in the Birmingham suburbs". This will help to ensure that the results you get are tailored to your needs.


Be Aware of the Difference Between Hotels and Motels


A lot of people use the words hotel and motel interchangeably, but these words have different meanings. A hotel is a traditional word for a lodging place with a variety of individual rooms, but the word motel didn't exist until about the middle of the last century.
 
The word motel is actually a combination of the words motor and hotel. Strictly speaking, a motel is a hotel where the rooms open directly to the parking lot. You don't go through a hallway to reach the rooms.
 
As a result, if you search for motels in Bessemer, you are likely to get results that fall into that category. Again, however, people often use these words interchangeably so to make sure you're booking the right facility for your needs, you may want to take a look at photos of hotels and motels in Bessemer so that you can see exactly how they are set up.


Read Reviews


Once you find a few hotels off highway 11 or wherever you happen to be searching for hotels near me, you can find the best option by looking at reviews. What do other travelers have to say about the hotel? If they say the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast was tasty, you should consider booking.


Look at Photos


In the past, travelers had to book their hotel rooms blind. They had no idea what a facility looked like until they arrived. Thanks to the internet, that trend has changed. Now, you can look at photos of the facility to ensure they offer everything you need and want, and you can also get a sense of the condition and cleanliness of the hotel.
 
Keep in mind, however, that booking sites often use stock photos from the hotel's corporate office. To ensure you're looking at the actual hotel you will be staying at, see if the hotel has its own website.
 
By keeping these tips in mind, you should be able to find the best hotel for your next trip. Ready to book? Contact us today.
