We stayed here for New Year's Eve for a small getaway for my 9 year old to a hotel with an indoor pool with a waterslide in the winter. The hotel did not disappoint us. The room was spacious. The pool was busy and there is no life guard, alot of the children were running and not necessarily waiting until... More

Hotel was great. Clean and friendly staff. Mall is the only thing to do at night and it is 4 miles away so this hotel is good for a relaxing getaway because there is not much to do in the local area but it is right off the highway.

Clean and comfortable as I expect from Hampton Inn. The biggest plus was that the normal King Size room was more like a suite, with a desk and couch in a separate area from the bed. A downside, however, was that the bathroom had an odd double door arrangement which was difficult to close completely and made a very loud... More

On walking into the hotel you are warmly greeted by the staff. You notice the furnishings and the cleanliness in the lobby, the elevator and everywhere you look. Upon entering your room you are welcomed by a very clean and spacious room. Totally unexpected and most welcome. Wonderful, wonderful stay at the Hampton. Thanks!

Great location, with many places to eat nearby. Great breakfast, great pool and a room that I felt at home in! The bed was super comfortable and I loved having a little living room area with a microwave and fridge!

This Hampton Inn is a good place to stay. We stayed for 10 days primarily to visit our daughter who is working as a "Nanny" nearby. It is also positioned well within the larger area and has numerous towns etc to visit within a 5-20 mile radius. Because of its pool with a slide at the weekends it appears to... More

We went here for a one night, quick family getaway. There's a great, 3 story waterslide that the kids went down probably a 100 times. Pool was great. Room was pleasant. Lots of restaurants in the area. Continental breakfast was a little bland, but hey...it's free!

I highly recommend the Hampton Inn Shelton. We stayed in the 2 queen bed room and were shocked at how large the room was. This generously sized room had plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 children. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. The pool and slide were a hit with the kids! Finally, all of the... More

The hotel is so clean. The staff was nice and very helpful. The breakfeast was good. Not bad for a free breakfeast. Get there early though like 8am. Overall a great experience would definitely and will come back. Worth the price.
