  1. At worst this game still remains a somewhat enjoyable experience thanks to the deep customizability of creating rooms.
  2. Hotel Giant falls into the trap of trying to be two things at once - an entertaining sim clone, as well as trying to appeal to fans of the various tycoon management games. Sadly, it will fail to fully satisfy either party.

    All told, it's a solid and enjoyable game that should appeal to both business tycoon fans who want to focus more on their customers and fans of "The Sims" who want to play a more goal-oriented game. [Oct 2002, p.110]
  4. One of the most deathly boring games you’re ever likely to play.
  5. The disappointing business simulation and the drone-like guests make it difficult for the game to hold your interest for too long.
  6. Computer Games Magazine

    More of a focus on customers and personalities, using grotesque caricatures and stereotypes, as apposed to a detailed simulation of the realities of running a hotel would have done wonders. [Nov 2002, p.83]
  7. The drone-like guests don’t offer any spice, there are no real pressing concerns like fire or floods, and boredom is your greatest challenge.
