I spent one night at the Hampton Inn as I could not make it home after work due to a snowstorm. The check-in staff were very efficient. What a nice surprise to see warm soup and cookies waiting for guests if they chose not to venture back out into the awful weather! My room was on the first floor and... More

Extremely pleased with our stay at this Hampton Inn. Exceptional and helpful staff, quiet rooms, wonderfully comfortable beds, easy to get to from the highway, and a great continental breakfast offering! Will definitely stay here again on future trips.

Very comfortable bed and a nice full breakfast with eggs and meat besides the usual make your own waffles that some others only offer. Location not clearly indicated from I-35, but it is close off a major east-west city intersection reasonably close to I-35. You're a couple of miles from downtown area where the restraunts are.

clean, elegant rooms with very friendly staff. good food too, but seemed to be the highest price in the area... Cookies were great and soup in the evening. Breakfast had a nice selection as well and seemed fresh too.

We were there for a hockey tournament on the ISU campus. The hotel was convenient and easy to find. It was comfortable and the staff were helpful. The breakfast was pleasant and since it was a snowy weekend, it was nice not to leave the hotel for the morning meal. We will stay here again if in the area.

I stay in Hilton hotels often and this is a perfectly fine hotel. Nothing fancy, but clean. The staff was quick and friendly at check-in. Good location close to 30 and 35. A couple of complaints. 1) Placing your cabinet between the desk and TV makes it nearly impossible to watch TV while getting some work done. 2) It's 2014,... More

Arrived on Chistmas Eve, late, and the staff was terrific even though i'm sure there were many other places they would rather be! They welcomed us there and thanked us for our loyalty to the Hilton brand. The room was clean and comfortable. Crazy to say in the middle of winter but the room was almost too warm... All in... More

Great Hotel. Breakfast was not so good when we got to breakfast hall they where out of some of the items. The eggs seem like powder eggs and the jucie was awful. Overall it was a good stay and we will stay at the hotel again.
