“Stay away...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

First thing I encountered was a keycard that wouldn't work on the outside door to our room, yes you drive right up to your room, it's one of THOSE hotels, had to walk all the way around and open it from the inside, good thing the key card didn't work because the door was safety latched anyway, could barely get the door open for a big chair in the way, second thing I noticed was the smashed in lamp shade beside that chair, nice. Thirty year old carpet, doors that didn't latch, curtains open or A/C, that is your choice, yes, the curtains cover the in window A/C unit which could be easily push in for someone to gain access to your room, if the latches don't fail first and in the area this place is in the chances are high! Vending machine, product from the US with no french on the packaging, that's kind of illegal isn't it? Couldn't find an expiry date on the cookies I bought so they went in the trash. Bring some duct tape, you will need it so your plugs don't fall out of the wall sockets. The closed up boarded up restaurant at the front adds a nice touch, once a Hooters then a Manhattans...? Anyway, I think you get the picture...

Room Tip: I doubt there are any...

I want to take this opportunity to apologize for the poor service
you received during your stay at the Howard Johnson of Hamilton.
Your experience with our Howard Johnson was not the quality of service
that we have promised to provide to our guests. Our Howard Johnson
promise is something that we strive to deliver to every guest every
day. There is no excuse that our staff did not fulfill that promise in
your case. Please accept our apologies
