"Not worth the price. The bathtubs in 2 rooms were both filthy, and so were the bathroom doors. The mirrors had smears, the walls had an oily substance on them, and the pictures were missing from the walls. Don't stay at this hotel.2019-10-21"

"A fairly new hotel in downtown Hamilton. Had a pool, exercise room, and parking garage. I particularly enjoyed the buffet dinner and hot breakfast. The city is right on Lake Ontario; take advantage of the many parks and water activities.2016-10-17"
"Right by an underground mall with a variety of stores. The hotel room was nice, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was clean. The employees were friendly and helpful. Great food and service at the restaurant. We loved the underground parking since it was winter. Our room the 2nd night faced the street and wasn't as nice as the 1st room, but it was clean and comfortable. You'll enjoy your stay.2020-02-07"
"The hotel was nice and pet-friendly, but the bathroom fan didn't work so the litter box smelled. The toilet paper roll was in an awkward spot; I had to reach around a cabinet and under the sink to get it. The bedding was stiff, crinkly, and uncomfortable. Room service was late every time I ordered it. The staff was friendly, and the pool was nice. I'd stay again.2016-09-14"

Someone tracked mud in the hallway and stairway; I informed the staff, but it hadn't been cleaned hours later. The breakfast area was small and didn't have enough seating. I'd never stay here again and don't recommend it.2018-08-26"

"I was disappointed that there were no rooms available on the 1st floor since there was no elevator. My hotel room had a microwave. 2016-04-25"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
