Rooms tiny, hallway stinks of urine, no restaurant, horrible parking lot and overall not up to howard Johnson's standards. Stayed one night before a flight thinking it would be Bette than super 8 and boy were we wrong.

It was filthy, decrepit, literally falling apart. I can't believe Howard Johnson and wyndham would attach their name to such a place.

Scott B, I would like to take this opportunity to apologize on your recent stay. Our ceiling in our stairway was leaking, due to a roof leak, but is now in for repair.. Our hotel is an older property, there for it gives us the advantage to set our price's very competitively. More

The staff was very helpful. Our room was large as well as functional. The morning breakfast was good and included coffee, juice, cereal and pastries. It's a great value for the money it costs to stay there and a perfect location. We will definitely stay here when we next visit Hamilton.

I recently stayed here for business and was very pleased with the service. The staff was very friendly, and management ensured that I had everything I needed. The room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is also in a very accessible location. I would definitely return to this hotel, as well as recommend it to others.... More
