We stayed here in a pinch as very unhelpful West Jet cancelled our flight back to Toronto suddenly. Was a little nervous as it was right downtown, but honestly the hotel was beautiful, and super clean. Staff were so friendly and very accommodating. We got a double bed room and it was small, but worked for the night. Bathroom was a bit small but again it did the trick! Restaurant out back was clean, food and service was good. They have a gorgeous backyard with patio furniture, lounges and a small pool. If I was ever in the same situation again I wouldn't hesitate to go back here. Only issue was we stayed near the front and the street traffic and locals were a bit loud as it was a Saturday night.

Good value price to quality. Clean rooms, helpful and kind staff, tasty breakfast. Next to the hotel there is pork pit (place with cheap good jerk meat). 5 min walk to doctors cove beach. Yet, the rooms are noisy as the hotel is next to the road. On Saturday there is a loud disco nearby. Do not recommend walking outside after sunset. So be prepared.

Stayed one night while on a tour. Located on the waterfront - no elevator and no help with luggage. No soundproofing. Spacious, well equipped room. Amenities included mini-fridge, microwave and electric kettle. A/C worked well. Comfortable bed and pillows. Desk area with uncomfortable backless stool. Bathroom with everything in working order and good water pressure in the evening, while in the morning there was only a trickle of water. Wifi worked well. Breakfast is served and it was abysmal: it took over 30 min just to place an order. The lone waitress kept saying that "she was coming". She didn't seem to care that guests were waiting. After 65 min, she came back and asked me what I wanted for breakfast. Basic breakfast was eventually served 70 min after I arrived in the breakfast room. I was told there was no manager on duty. The staff was rude and acted as if they couldn't care less about guests.

Perfect local choice close to the Hip Strip, restaurants and airport. Clean, comfortable with a nice private quiet pool. Across the street from the beautiful blue waters on a public beach. The strip tends to be noisy, but it’s where it all happens!

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights due to how close it was from the airport. Upon on arrival first night was OK. We checked out the next day for a funeral in the st Catherine and to spendtimewithfamily. Then checked back in for another 2night on the 28th Feb 2023 due to leaving on the 2nd March. This time I was put into a back room with no WiFi for my entire stayed. I went to front front desk to report this and asked if I could moved room. I was told that they were fully booked by a slim brown skin lady. Who didn't care one way or the other. (Never like speaking to her at all)This hotel is very basic only convenience because its on the strip and close to the airport. Breakfast simply. For the price for this hotel.. they shouldn't offer more.

It was worth the money. Our stay was for seven days. My husband, sister and I had awesome time. The hotel is clean, staff friendly, and either way you go everything is in walking distance. Breakfast was also great, you got to choose from an American breakfast or Jamaican breakfast. The pool was okay, we enjoyed relaxing and having quality time with each other. Everything was great.

Response from Donahue Jarrett, Marketing at Altamont West Hotel
Responded 11 Nov 2022
Hi - Thanks for taking the time to write the review. Thanks for the positive review re the food. The rest of your experience is anomolous. I absolutely aagree with you that both the treatment and the lack of immediate attention (ie moving you right away) was not up to par. My only diagreement with your overall assesment is that the room was dirty, as having inspected it, this was not the case. This bed bug issue is a new one and is being dealt with as we speak and the affected room has been made unavailable. As you know, bed bugs can travel with individuals in crevices of suitcases etc, (not suggesting in any way that you brought them, to be clear), thus the problem may apparently only be discovered when seen or experienced by housekeepers (who did not see any) or guests. Again, we appreciate your having also taken the time to show the video to the agent. It is rather unfortunate that proper protocols were not followed by the agent this time around. You indeed ought to have been moved IMMEDIATELY! We are sorry you had to experince Montego Bay, and more importantly our property in this way on your very first visit to Jamaica. I invite you to return so that we can show you the reason that over 90% of our reviews are positive ones.Of course , you may contact me directly to arrange at least a complimentary night and the significant discount. This (both the issue and the treatment) is very not normal for us. Thanks again for bringing this to our attention As far as the poor service goes, we have two new persons at the desk who clearly need to be retrained We appreciate the feedback as it helps us improve the product and in the make it a better experience for all.

I will recommend this hotel to anyone their customer service was excellent the ground staffs was so friendly and helpful. The kitchen staffs was pleasant always had that morning smile. The front desk clerk Danick was exceptional helpful, friendly and pleasant. I forgot to inform my bank about my travel plans and as a result I had problem using my card when trying to extend my stay, surprisingly Danick went way an beyond in helping deal with my issue. Danick thank you, you are one of the main reason I will recommend this hotel. Ms Solomon

Person at front desk was pleasant check was quick, the room was big and clean, very comfortable despite the stairs leading up to check in and to the room, help was available for taking up suitcases up to room. Arrange for pickup at the airport was smooth a very pleasant driver . Although stay was one night things were comfortable. I would recommend , and I would stay there again. For free services provided I am not sure as used it for a stop over.
