Beyond basic. Two days in a row our bed was not changed or made nor the bathroom cleaned. Very noisy hotel. Very thin walls you can hear your neighbors talk on the phone. So not worth the price. We called about our beds not being made and their answer was well no one's here now to help

We are sorry your room did not receive complete service. Our housekeeping staff is small but thorough. A normal room serviced as a "stay-over" is dusted and vacuumed, the beds made with a fold-down, and the bathroom refreshed with new toiletries and towels. Our front desk staff received your call about incomplete service, when you reported that your beds were...

Stayed here with the Hockey team I coach, and while it wasn't unpleasant, it certainly wasn't a great experience. Very basic, very clean, spacious rooms and very nice appearance wise. However, it's very noisy because it was full the 2 nights we stayed, including 2 other Hockey teams, the walls are paper thin so you can hear everything around you....

Thank you for praising our cleanliness, spacious rooms, and very nice appearance. As you identified yourself as a hockey coach, we were able to look up your reservation and double-check your concerns. Your room was actually a corner room, so your only neighbors were a room with four of your team members in it. We double-checked the operation of your...

This hotel was the worst experience in my 48 years. We came to Hamilton because our son had an interview at Colgate, so he needed his rest. At 11 PM we called the front desk when it sounded like a heard of elephants were ta dancing above us. I got quiet for a short time and then it started again....

Thank you for acknowledging prompt and courteous service, including a discount, from the manager on call and the daytime staff. We are sorry for the unfortunate acceleration of events with our overnight weekend staff. Management did discuss the evening's events with that staff member, and outline several different plans of action, should similar events take place. We are committed to...

I was torn between a Poor and Average rating, and was feeling generous this morning. The Wendt Inn was the only available lodging for an event we attended at Colgate. The front desk staff was unfriendly and not helpful, almost bordering on downright rude. The rooms were just average and the breakfast was skimpy and unimpressive for the high rates...

We are sorry you perceived our front desk clerk as unfriendly, or that they were unable to help you in a satisfactory manner. If you feel you have been treated unfairly, you may contact management directly at 800-218-5449, or send an email to Meetings@dreamscape.com. We are sorry you could hear voices outside your room. You may always ask a staff...

The Wendt is an OK two story hotel with no elevator and a minimal continental breakfast. Other hotel in town was full and there are really no alternatives in the area. Friendly staff, super fast check and free wifi were the highlights.

Thank you for your positive review. Thank you for praising our friendly staff, swift service, and complimentary internet . We are one of two hotels within the town itself; however, our sister property, the White Eagle Conference Center, sits invitingly on the banks of Lake Moraine, and features individual cottages on rolling green lawn. White Eagle Lodge offers visitors fishing...

If you don't mind a "basic" place to stay in Hamilton, you might give this a try. It is a two-floor motel without an elevator. There is no coffee in the rooms, nor a hair dryer. Amenities are scarce. I was able to have the friendly desk clerk make coffee for me in the afternoon because it was not routinely...

Thank you for your courteous review. Thank you for praising our friendly staff and clean and comfortable rooms. We are sorry you felt our amenities were lacking. There is a hair dryer in every room.

Stayed here for Colgate Graduation. We had to book over a year in advance and had to stay 3 nights or we couldn't book the property at all, which I found absolutely ridiculous. Way way way overpriced. We stayed in the new section which is modern and clean. But sleeping was nearly impossible with those terrible beds. I would've been...

We are sorry you were unhappy with our advance booking, rates, and graduation three-night policy. We book a high-volume event like college graduation a year in advance. Many of our guests regularly stay with us during their students' four-year college career, and are excited and happy to book an event that celebrates their students successful completion. Our three-night stay for...

We stayed there for an overnight looking at colleges. There are 2 hotels in town. The other was booked and we got the last room here.

We are sorry you did not enjoy our complimentary continental breakfast. We offer Paul DeLima coffee, which is manufactured and sold only in Syracuse, New York. It is generally acknowledged to be one of the areas finest coffees. We serve Block & Barrel bagels, a premier delicatessen-style kosher bagel. We do apologize if your bagel was only partly thawed.

We have stayed at this "hotel" a few times and it is somewhat less than average for the price but not quite terrible. Because the weather was so bad we knew we would arrive an hour or so before 3 PM check in time so I called from the car to see if we could have early check in. I...

We are sorry that you felt we did not go out of our way to accommodate you. We advise all our guests upon booking of our check-in and check-out times. A set check-in time allows our smaller housekeeping staff to complete room preparations. We feel that our front desk clerk acted appropriately and hospitably to immediately offer you another room...
