This is a busy hotel. With 3 workers at the desk it took awhile to get registered with 1 employee on the phone & one putting together a mailing, it took awhile to get checked in. Of course, the employee had a bad day & relayed it on to us, which we didn't need. The room was acceptable but worn.... More

For $300 a night without a beachfront view from our room, you may do better elsewhere. The room smells of mold and has visible mold. There are missing tiles on the bathroom floor. The ceiling has holes, cracks, bad repairs, as does the plumbing. The blankets are actually tattered and torn (no exaggeration). The breakfast area, on the third floor,... More

I had to cancel my reservation due to a death in the immediate family. The hotel's refund policy is ridiculous, requiring cancellation by noon 3 days prior to reserved date of stay. Most hotels only require 24 hours notice. I called to cancel before noon 2 days before my reservation and told the clerk my circumstances. My request to waive... More

We made a reservation online at this hotel for our honeymoon. The site let us make the reservation and gave us a confirmation number. We drove 5 hours only to find out they gave away our room or there was never a room available to begin with. The clerk did nothing to try and find us another hotel nor did... More

Those considering this hotel think again. Beds are rock hard, 1 garbage in bathroom, elevator was out during our stay, vending machine area is about 100 degrees so beverages are not cold. We have lost $3 so far trying to purchase one. Have to fill out a form at the front desk to get reimbursed. The railing on the balcony... More

After a wonderful week with family in Erie, PA, we stopped at my sister-in-law's place in Eastpointe, MI. We thought it would be nice to go home via the Mackinaw Bridge instead of Chicago. She recommended the Hamilton Inn based on her own experience. I went to the website and clicked to make a reservation selecting date, etc. It did... More

The Hamilton Inn was all that we could ask for, Lots of free parking, knowledgeable desk staff and clean comfortable rooms looking out over the harbor and Lake Huron. The only drawback was the free breakfast bar that was included in the room price. The breakfast buffet was sub par at best. We actually left the premises and found a... More

I should have taken the advice I read about this Hotel and picked a different place!!!! When you walk into the lobby it looks like a high class place BUT that is where it end. Couldn't see out the window on our 3rd floor room because they were covered by trees. the main hall on the main floor goes right... More

This junky hotel, despite its good ratings on other sites, is a complete piece of trash that saw better days two decades ago. Upon entering the lobby for the first time, instead of being welcomed as a guest, we were made to wait quite some time before checking in due to some computer issue. The curt and miserable desk clerk,... More
