Normally a college dorm, the "room" had 2 bedrooms and a kitchen, nice bathrm with walkin shower. Lounge down the hall and free breakfast - cereal, bagels and delicious coffee. Staff was very friendly. Great location.
Very quiet.

Room Tip: - in the rooms the kitchen is the common area - tv is in the bedrooms. Lounge down the hall offers...

Close to everything in Hamilton. Easy check in/drive by drop off but free parking is remote. Large lots near front doors are off limits. There are elevators to upper levels. Since this is a college dorm available only during summer season, rooms are spartan but clean. Double beds are very comfortable but almost too small for two adults. Linens are good quality and bath is large and well equipped. Basic toiletries are provided. There is only hard wired internet in rooms. Must go to lobby to use free wifi. Meeting rooms are off the lobby and there is no sound barrier so voices, music, etc. (sometimes quite loud) interrupted conversation or attempts to get online. Numerous light bulbs did not work. Maintenance/housekeeping only available during day. Room was freezing when we arrived and could not get an extra blanket or light bulb. Eventually got heat. Front desk staff is courteous BUT has absolutely NO supplies after hours. 6-9am continental breakfast included toast, bagels, cereal, coffee, tea, and orange drink. Ran out of items by 8:15 am on both days of our stay. Only one person works breakfast area and they could not keep up with demand. Units have kitchenette with small table and two chairs. We brought lots of food to store and prepare for a family event so this was important. Literally NOTHING else in kitchen but frig, microwave and sink. No utensils or cleaning supplies. Freezer temp not cold enough to freeze food but frig was fine. Both bedrooms had functional cable TV, desk, chair, and dresser. Free local phone in room was nice but there were messages from previous resident that couldn't be cleared so light kept flashing. They couldn't fix this and it was annoying. For around $70 USD/night this is still a good value if you don't mind a few inconveniences. Would be very cost effective for families with children, two singles, or two couples who want to get really close.

We have stayed here twice. Both times, friendly service, comfy beds, and nice room with large fridge, micro and kitchen table. Room comes with small breakfast, downstairs. I think when the hotel is full, though, the breakfast needs two people to keep filling things--it was quite congested, and the one lady was running her feet off and couldn't keep up-we waited 30 minutes to get a bagel and coffee.

Room Tip: Bring a cable if you want to use computer in your room-Wi-Fi in lobby only

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. :)
