We stayed at this quaint hotel while I conducted some research at Colgate University. There were very few other visitors due to the Summer break and it being not quite the high vacation season yet. The room was clean and well taken care of. Some of the staff were friendly, others seemed to be preoccupied with other thoughts. The Inn... More

Room was large & only had a tv , 2 beds 1 dresser & small table with 2 side chairs. Did not have a frig., microwave, closet, iron & board, no comfortable L/R side chair or love seat, no coffee pot & no desk. Bare minimum. Not worth the money. Also, room & bathroom was dated. No security. We will... More

When I rang to book a room in this hotel the woman I spoke to gave me little to no information - I told her I needed a room on a certain date, she asked my name and even got my credit card number but was ready to hang up on me before she even told me how much the... More

We recently attended the Colgate Class Reunion Weekend. The Wendt Inn offered a convenient location just outside the main section of Hamilton. It was clean and quiet. The sheets could have had more substance, but they were fine for three days. Unfortunately the air conditioner had only two speeds: very cold or warm. The television was old, and the bathroom...

Hotel is dated, but staff is friendly. TV was old, but cable service was recently updated to provide a good variety of channels. Close to Colgate University and eating establishments are within a reasonable distance.

Hotel is convenint to downtwon Hamilton, and Colgate. Clean and functional this is a no frills hotel, more like a motel. TV is dated and the sheets are thin and coarse. Walls are not well soundproofed. Overall good value, friendly reception. Strong reliable and free internet, mattress was tired and neeed replacing.

We needed to stay in Hamilton for 3 days while meeting with a contractor. We stayed at the Wendt University Inn and liked it. It's more in the class of a moderate roadside chain (plastic cups, continental breakfast, etc). But it does this very well. It's a bit pricey, but there isn't any competition nearby. If we need a place... More

I just stayed here last night. I received a warm welcome at reception. I was told I was in room 142 which is in the new wing and was about as far as you can get from the lobby. Which was good. I don't normally like to be on the first floor because of the all of the traffic but... More

We visited Hamilton for a college visit. Before comparing it to bigger hotels, please bear in mind the location. Hamilton , as I see it, is a college town and not really a business place. There are not too many hotels and whatever is there , caters to parents and kids going to school in that area. With that background,... More

I've seen the reviews which are not consistent with my experience. Always found this place to be very clean, serviceable budget alternative in Hamitlon. (Much needed by the way.) Rooms are decent sized and usually spotless. Sorry the guy had an issue with his kids but not sure I'd make my choice (in this area at least) based on that... More
