I'd like to start by saying the staff really made this place great. A special shout out to Amanda Calitri who was extremely helpful in directing me to local businesses I was after and her and the rest of them for being super friendly and helpful (even in the early hours).

I was attending a course at the College and decided to use the student dorms (which are used as a hotel in the summer). Keeping in mind these are dorms it was pretty nice for what you're paying. I had a 2 bedroom suite with a kitchen that has a full fridge and microwave (no stove). There is a communal kitchen and a laundry room as well. I had full gym access at the College which had a decent setup and VERY nice cardio equipment.

Anyway, it's no Sheraton, but if you're OK with an apartment type dwelling instead of the typical "Days Inn" type hotel this place will not disappoint.

If you are looking for a cheap, spacious place to stay, this it. The rooms are huge and have separate bedrooms as well as a kitchen with a full sized fridge and table. Very clean and comfortable rooms for an bargain. Definitely would stay here again.

My mother-in-law booked my family and herself a room in this place. It was really nice and our room was quite spacious. It had two rooms each with a bed and small tv and a kitchen and bathroom to share. It was really clean! I enjoyed staying here and it was actually quiet. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice, reasonably priced place to stay. The lady at the front desk was also very friendly and laughed at all of my mother-in-law's jokes, which she liked. :)

Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was very clean except for the carpet in the bedrooms (need dedicated room socks or will get itchy feet). Read reviews so knew that we needed to bring cutlery and plates. Great option for those with allergies since it has a full size fridge and lots of counter space. Wifi in the room does work sometimes. It's a treasure hunt to find the perfect spot to be able to actually get a signal. After you do it's pretty slow. Woke up at night decided to use the tablet. Wifi was fine so it seems to be more of a wifi traffic volume issue rather than signal strength. Breakfast can only be described as an attempt at a continental breakfast. Ended up going to the Egg & I on Upper James just south of Rymal Rd. Delicious food for a great price but lots of people so be ready to wait. Cute movie room on the floor. Overall a good budget option. 2 Separate bedrooms so could have easily split with another couple which would really bring down the price.

Dear BudgetTraveller2000,
Thank you very much for the positive comments as well as other points that we need to work on. We regret and apologize about the difficulties of not having WIFI access in the suites, only at our lobby and meeting rooms. Complimentary internet (wired) access is available in the suites and cable connections are available for use, we are hoping as well that we can make this change very soon. We have shared the feedback to our staff and department to help us improve our other services for guest satisfaction. Enjoy your summer and we look forward to your next stay with us.

Sincerely,
Patty Alencar

It's important to understand that this is actually the Mohawk College student residence. Since most of the students are not around during the summer, the college rents out the extra rooms. That's why the price is lower than more traditional hotels.

If you are expecting luxury hotel accommodations, you might be disappointed -- but for a student residence, I thought it was actually quite nice. The two-bedroom suite was ideal for our family (teenage daughter, wife, and myself). Everything was clean and well-kept.

The location was fairly convenient: about ten minutes by car from the 403, and about ten minutes from downtown Hamilton and Dundurn Castle. We had some difficulty actually locating the residence once we arrived on the Mohawk College campus. To us, the campus parking lots seemed like a maze. On the other hand, we might have just been tired after a 9-hour drive from Wisconsin.

My only complaint is that the Wi-Fi did not work in our room. It was only accessible near the front desk. The signal strength fell off quickly.

Overall, I think it's very sensible of the college to rent out unused rooms in the summer. It provides travelers with an affordable option, especially for families. I would definitely stay there again. However, I hope they improve the Wi-Fi service.
