Travel - Choosing the Right Accommodation for Your Stay
Whether you are a corporate traveler, solo traveler, family traveler or traveling with your partner, you all have one thing in common; you all need to have a place to stay overnight. You might choose a penthouse suite in a luxurious hotel, or a bed and breakfast in town. You might book a room in a hotel as you would like to enjoy the amenities, or you might choose a campsite as it fits more into your budget. In the end, we all seek the same: Great value for money.

Most of us can define the difference between a resort and a bed & breakfast, or a campsite and a hostel but once talking about the difference between a hotel and a motel, it gets a little hard.

So, what is the difference between a motel and a hotel?
Briefly, a hotel is often located in urban areas, close to the action where travelers mostly stay for a few nights. Besides accommodation, hotels offer you amenities such as swimming pools, spa’s, restaurants, and gyms.

A motel could usually be found along highways or touristic attractions outside the city and only provide accommodation. Usually, the prices of a motel are lower than those of a hotel.

Now, what if you are looking for accommodation with great value, but do not want to give in on comfort, location, or amenities? Then you choose The Metrotel - because we are your motel that acts like a hotel.
