My girlfriend and I stayed at the Altamont West Hotel in April of 2015 for a spring-break trip. While we looked around Montego Bay for the all-inclusive resorts, something just seemed right about this one (in addition to the price being very reasonable: ~$150/night). The staff was very friendly, even when they made a mistake booking us the wrong room...

My husband and I just spent a week at the Altamont West. Summary: We would stay here again, but definitely in a different room. THE GOOD: Hotel looks exactly as it does in photos. Beautiful eclectic decor and clean. (Mostly) super helpful and friendly staff. Delicious complimentary breakfast. Central location suitable for walking. THE BAD: Uncomfortable beds. Weird & small...

I understand the point made about privacy in the bathroom and we are now looking at a way to enclose that face basin (there are only two rooms like that in the hotel). I have likewise noted the challenge you described as the "tightness" as regards the location of the toilet in that particular room. Rest assured that that design...

Our room was nice and clean but a bit dark because there was not much windows. Breakfast quite good but pool was unusable. The worst part is location: Hip Strip is not nice area to walk, dine or do anything. Because of the road it was very noisy during the night.

We have addressed the matter of lighting in the rooms by both changing out light fixtures and fittings as well as adding lamps in most rooms. Sorry for the inconvenience of the pool being out of use while you were with us. It was due for repairs which were being carried out . As regards location, the advantage (for some)...

The hotel was cozy, rooms comfortable and staff friendly. Rooms closer to the backyard are quieter as the hotel is situated right next to a highway. There is also a nightclub close by playing loud music during weekends, which was not great news for a poor sleeper. This was however not a problem when wearing earplugs and ear-muffs. The rooms...

Reasonably priced hotel only a few minutes away from the airport. The rooms were spacious and the bed comfortable. My only complaint was that the rooms are not sound-proof and you can clearly hear your next door neighbor. I was told this will be addressed in the future. Special mention to Sherill at the front desk who rectified a problem...

Upon arrival the Hotel did not have our reservation however that could have been the fault of booking.com and not the Altamont West Hotel. They did not hesitate to provide us with a room, though it was not the room we had requested from booking.com. We made reservations for a superior room, but instead received a standard room.

Travelled to JA to visit family and decided to spend the last few nights here before flying home.
