Three Good Reasons to Book Directly with Stadium Motel

By Tristan Hooker/MediaPAdownload-1-1

If you’re tempted to book your motel accommodation through a third-party booking site like or Expedia, think again, says Dorothy Stokes, who owns and operates Stadium Motel in Hamilton with her husband Brian.

“At Stadium Motel, we recommend guests book directly with us, either by phone, e-mail or by using our online booking facility,” says Dorothy Stokes, “as this will give them a number of advantages.”

  1. Flexibility

One of the advantages is the flexibility for guests to be able to make changes to their booking.

“Guests who book through a third party will not get a chance to deal directly with us,” says Dorothy.  “We want to provide our guests with the best accommodation for their needs at the best price.  Even if they’re using our online booking facility, they still have the option of calling us to ask advice.  If any problems arise, it’s clearer and easier to negotiate directly with us.”

  1. Third Party Sites Charge a Commission

Brian Stokes says some guests don’t realise third party sites charge a commission to the motel.  He says Stadium Motel, like most accommodation providers, would prefer to put that money back into the motel to make it more comfortable for their guests, rather than pay a commission to a booking site.  “Also,” says Brian, “that commission goes offshore and not into the local economy.”

  1. Hot Deals

Stadium Motel has a special “Hot Deals” page on their website.  Their current Hot Deals, ending 31 January 2017, include four options, from discounts to free breakfasts!  You’ll only get special touches like that when you book directly.
