Summary: I started game-playing around the time of Mist and it's successors. This one reminded me of those games, but with much better graphics and much more interesting things to do. It took me a while to get going, finding my way around the game but it had a reasonable story that moved the story along, the graphics were nice although the characters were a little fuzzy. Overall fun and gave me hours of entertainment.
Summary: I enjoyed this game very much. An old school point-and-click adventure. Don't find too many new games of this type anymore. The current trend is to mix in HO scenes with the adventure so it makes gathering the items easier and to drive the direction of the game. But in this game, its left up to the player to try all the different possibilities until something works.
Summary: The reviewers below have already covered the good and the bad about Hotel, and I agree with many of both opinions. I’d just like to argue for the side that this is a great game for those who aren’t always successful at adventure games. For example, me: I am terrible at classic point-and-click, I’m just too impatient.
Summary: Excellent game. Loaded fine.Ran for me with zero glitches. Great story that held my interest. Graphics were nice and crisp on my machine. Length was good but not great. Could have been longer considering it was an adventure but wasn't so short as to not be worth it. Hint button was convenient as it showed the options available on the screen. Just a functional button that did not need to refill. Music was not annoying or intrusive. Appropriate to the scenes.
Summary: I'd like to give this game a 3 1/2 really. Ok storyline, fun to play, and some moments of random thrown in. For those of you who've played older adventure games like Broken Sword this is not anywhere near as awesome as that series, but like in those games ladders, forklifts, and anything you pick up mysteriously fits in your characters skin tight jeans. It's a miracle! Overall I found this game really easy to play but I had an ok time playing it.
Summary: Pros: Well written story; good atmosphere, scene graphics, music; nice hints Cons: flat, dated character graphics; uneven sound; uneven adventure mechanics As a long time adventure genre fan, this was a decent game, but suffered from underwhelming graphics (characters looked like something from the late 80s/early 90s) and sound that disappeared at odd moments. It was a nice change of pace from longer, more intricate point-and-click adventure games.
Summary: I had a great time with this game, but I don't think it's quite so easy as the reviewer would have you believe, and I don't recommend it for novices until they have been thoroughly immersed in the HOG-adventure mix for some time and learned all the adventure game quirks. (see, Miranda22, there's not a thing wrong with you!) It's true that seasoned adventure fans probably would find it manageable, or perhaps easy.
Summary: In fairness to the game, I need to say that I am not very experienced with p&c adventure games, so am not very good at them. One reason I tried this one was due to many remarks that this game gives lots of directions so is particularly suitable to a novice like myself. That turned out not to be true for me.
Summary: The game is nicely crafted, its a point and click adventure game with a helpful hint system which is usually not present in other adventure games, but the inventory system is not good as you have to click open and close it every time, not only that, in the game once we have to unscrew 4 bolts so we have to pick the tool from the inventory four times, its annoying.
Summary: I really enjoyed this game. I like point & click adventures and I really dislike hand-holding, so the fact that this one didn't spell things out for you was a plus for me. The artwork isn't fantastic but I agree with another reviewer that better art wouldn't have made the game more fun. I enjoyed and was genuinely intrigued by the story, and I really liked Bridget Brightstone, the protagonist.
