A group of 5 men rented this accommodation for a week this January 2013 for work in Haldimand County, we rented this based on Trip Advisor comments. When arriving, we were expecting the basic roadside motel accommodations. The beds were fine, the decor was fine, but the overall cleanliness of the room was not fine. We had 3 rooms booked, 2 of the rooms had 2 people and the 3rd had one person, we were seeking accommodations for a possible 3 month stay. Over our week, our beds were made daily, fresh towels were brought in, the owners courteous, but not once was the room vacuumed or the bathroom cleaned. On day 2 we went to the dollar store to buy sponges and cleaner. Each day we would come back from work and see the same gum wrapper on the floor and the floors clearly not cleaned nor anything else in the room. Each day,only the beds were made and towels were laid out. On the 3rd day I went to the front desk annoyed, mentioned the room hadn't been vacuumed and asked "Do you have a vacuum I could use?" The owner told me where I could get one and I went back and vacuumed my own room. During the same conversation he also asked me if I wanted to book back for the next week, politely we declined.
This reservation coming in during a slow business period, 3 rooms x $75 per day x 5 days x 12 weeks is a lot of money lost, for simply laziness. In short, no I would not recommend the room. There are many rooms in Simcoe and outside of Hamilton. This reservation was made under an Archaelogy firm at this hotel for work on the Summerhaven Wind Project.
