“A nice place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2005

We were a group of 13 staying here, 8 teenagers. The kids really enjoyed the pool and the breakfast. We were expecting a larger breakfast because it advertised a 25' hot bar. It was a continental breakfast with sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy and waffles you make yourself. Along with that there were the other foods (cereal, juices, breads/bagels, mixed canned fruit, and donut holes), more than enough to get your morning started!
We found the staff to be quite friendly and helpful. We got a great deal because we were pre-season. Our rooms were $88 each for a 2-room, with 2 queensize beds in each bedroom. Each bedroom had it's own tv, refrigerator, and bathroom. GREAT for that many teens!
Situated right next to Starline ferry within walking distance, I would suggest going online and getting coupons for the ferries. You definately would save more than the traditional hotel/AAA discounts if you're a group of 3 or more.
We would stay here again. It was a fine hotel. Although if you're looking for a late morning, DON'T take room 340.......it's right next to the breakfast area. Loud people/running children .......would wake you up.
One thing about the breakfast area that was nice. It was available to use outside of the breakfast hours, with a small microwave, great for making popcorn. The room has a large screen tv and many tables. If you were tired of the pool or just wanted to play games with your kids or adults, it's a great large area for that.

Just recently spent a weekend at the Hamilton. As always, the negative reviews here concerned me a little, but the experience was fine.

Good location. Clean rooms and common areas. Did not do the breakfast (just coffee) but it looked fine (waffles, eggs, sausage etc) in a large breakfast room.

Nice access to the beach although the actual beach area is relatively small. I would stay here again. It was very busy because it was one of only a handful of hotels open during our stay (April 15 & 16 2005) but it didn't seem to be overwhelmed with people.

For good pizza try the Pizza Palace (I think that's the name) next to the firehall downtown.

Worst service I have ever had. Rude Rude Rude! I swear none of the reviews written here reflect the experiences of actual guests at this facility. Looks ok on the outside....but pray you don't have the slightest complaint or you will face the wrath of desk clerks and management alike.
