Very clean, large well appointed rooms. The hotel has 3 floors and the 3d floor seems to be very quiet and has some nice greenery views from the windows, some overlook parking area. There are a few eating places nearby, Pizza Pizza & Kelsys and all within walking distance. The hotel restaurant $ for meals reasonable and comparable to Kelseys.... More

First, let's be clear about the location. This is not a place for someone without a car who expects to be right in the city center; it is on a busy road in a rather charmless area with, truth be told, 70s-style external architecture to match. But it's not out of the way either - just a five-minute drive from... More

I have stayed in this hotel three dimes during visits to McMaster University. Do not let the exterior discourage you - the hotel has everything a traveller needs, comfortable, relatively large rooms, fast. well-working wifi, a pool and a small restaurant. Although the hotel is located between the motorway and Main Street, there is very little noise inside and the... More

When we pulled up to this hotel, we were a little afraid as it's not so nice on the outside. A friend of ours booked it for a wedding we were attending. We were pleasantly surprised when we got inside! It's very clean and modern. The beds were super comfortable and the staff was very nice. We had a room... More

Everything was great, beds very comfortable, clean & new. Rooms are good with free Wi-Fi. Nice and helpful Staff. The location is easy to get from HWY 403 & near to McMaster University. The swimming pool was very clean. It was nice to have a complimentary breakfast but should be improved; very few choices were made available. Liked the free... More

Our family laughed at the reviews where previous guests complained about the 'shower rod being straight, not curved' and expecting a 'complimentary toothbrush at the price of the room', but took the chance on staying here despite the description of a 'hideous 1970s architectural nightmare of a building on the outside'. Are you people kidding me? First world problems is... More

The Wifi in the room was only 1 to 2 bars. We had difficulty loading most things and gave up.The place was clean, staff friendly, breakfast was good but at the price we paid I would have expected the forgotten toothbrush to be complimentary not $3.00. We were on the third floor facing the Main Street and the traffic was... More

I also recently stayed at the Visitors Inn due to a basketball tournament and was pleasantly surprised by the renovated interiors. The room was a double queen and there was no issue with 4 in the room. The bathroom was fine and getting plenty of extra towels for everyone was not an issue. There is an in-room refrigerator and coffee... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you found the recently renovated rooms comfortable. We are happy that you enjoyed our indoor pool. I am sorry if you found the lighting too dim. There should be plenty of bright LED lighting, however the front desk must have not turned on all of the lights. I will make sure... More
