First impressions count, and being asked if we were the ones from the small island (meaning the UK?) is not the welcome we expected.
Thankfully Hamilton was a stopover on our way north, so we only stayed one night. The place was clean enough, but the wifi was charged as we were told abruptly 'you don't get that on your package' Way to go weird reception lady on those first impressions again. There was also no mention of the fabulous tv package the comfort inn manager keeps banging on about whenever anyone as the gall to criticise the place, I suspect we didn't get that on our cheap last minute package either?
Whilst the beds were comfortable, the place was stinking hot with just a fan to circulate the muggy warm air, but hey, what am I complaining about, who needs air con when the place has sky right Mr Comfort Inn Customer Service Manager?
This is a cheap non-descript motel with a definate 70's feel to it, ok for one night, but there are better deals in Hamilton than this one, I'd keep on looking if you need to stay longer.
