Editor's Analysis
Updated Dec 28, 2012
Overview
Given the proximity to Niagara Falls and Hamilton (Grimsby is roughly halfway between the two cities), this hotel may appeal to travellers to use as a home base while touring the Niagara area or visiting the city of Hamilton. It may also be appropriate for guests who prefer to stay outside of the busy tourist area of Niagara Falls.

This 100% non-smoking hotel has 60 rooms. In each room guests can expect free Wi-Fi, a hair dryer, a coffeemaker and an iron and ironing board. Guests have the option of standard rooms with queen beds, or suites (king bed, sofabed, mini-fridge and microwave). Pets are allowed for $10 per night.

There is no on site restaurant, but guests are offered a complimentary continental breakfast daily (a selection of baked goods and cereals, coffee, tea and juice). There are restaurants within a 5-minute walk of the hotel. On-site amenities include free parking, an indoor pool, a hot tub and a gym.

This hotel is just over a 10-minute drive to Grimsby Beach and the shores of Lake Ontario. Wild Water Works is a 15-minute drive away. Niagara Falls is just over a 30-minute drive away. Niagara Wine Country is between a 30-40 minute drive away. Downtown Hamilton will take about 25 minutes to drive depending on traffic. (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

Confirmed with a front desk agent: Wi-Fi, parking and breakfast (call date: December 28, 2012).

The Bad
The majority of reviews used for this analysis were positive and guests did not have many common complaints. There were a handful of criticisms that did not seem to be reflective of the overall guest experience.

A few guests felt that the continental breakfast was lacking in selection. They thought the breakfast was a bit sparse and could be improved by offering hot items as well. 

A handful of guests were disturbed by noise from other guests in the hallways. Some other guests were bothered by traffic noise coming from the QEW.
