“great staff, clean, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

I have stayed at the Visitors Inn in Hamilton a number of times, and have always ben impressed with the staff, and overall value of this hotel. It is very close to Mc Master University, and I would highly recommend it. A car is needed as there is very little in walking distance.

Fantastic little hotel, right where we wanted to be in Hamilton, close to family for Christmas!
The decor and furnishings are a little dated, but everything is clean and tidy and the staff are very friendly and accommodating

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2012

We arrived late from Toronto and was greated very friendly and even called us by name. We were booked for a couple week stay as we had to visit McMaster's Hospital to see a specialist. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating with any requests. We didn't use the pool or hottub but looked very clean and inviting. Small gym room was great for a quick workout. We only ate a couple of times at the restaurant and the food was good and the price seemed standard. Would reccommend this hotel. The staff made it very inviting.

We tried everything from changing rooms (streetside to highway side) to get away from traffic noise to pushing the mattress from the extra bed up against the window to create some makeshift soundproofing. Nothing worked. .. The best solution? Moving to another hotel. Will not return.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2012

The location of this hotel is very convenient to McMaster University, which is a big plus if you are visiting that institution. The property is clean and the rooms are big. However, the windows are paper thin and the street noise, from a busy street is very loud. It took 3-5 minutes to get hot water to come out of the shower, the soap can best be described as sandpaper-like rather than creamy, and the bath towels are only a few inches larger than a face towel. The breakfast, while quite inexpensive, was nothing to write home about. Very greasy and bland.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the street.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

We had initially booked one room with two queen sized beds for 4 adults. However, the room was too small for all of us. Two of us received a double room with one queen bed plus a kitchenetter. The other room, which also had a fridge and coffee corner was less comfortable as the two beds took up most of the room The windows could not be opened and it took some time to work out the airconditioning so it would not be too hot or cold. Everything was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was of a good size. A safety bar on the wall of the bath would be helpful.

The staff helped efficiently to deal with the room problem.

There is a dining room and breakfast costs extra. The food was adequate and reasonably priced, but not inspiring. There are set prices and a la carte.

We were in a small group. - We did not use the swimming pool, but those who did commented on it favorably.

Room Tip: The rooms with kitchenettes are more comfortable
