You need to check if the surroundings are clean and conducive for one to stay in.  The calmness of a hotel is very important and must be one of the factors you should look out for before booking into a hotel.

Security system

A hotel cannot be complete without an adequate security system. If you check into a hotel and find out that your security isn’t assured, then you have to leave because your life is in real danger.

Customer service

A hotel is said to be ‘a home away from home’, a place of relaxation and comfort. So you don’t get a warm welcome whenever you get to a hotel, then you need to leave. There’s no comfort in a hostile environment. The customer service is a top priority for your accommodation.
