The Hampton Inn was the cleanest hotel we've ever stayed at. The mattress and bedding were downright delicious - very comfortable and luxurious. My fiancé suffered medical emergency, and the desk manager called an ambulance for us, and had other staff members stay with us while we awaited help. The breakfast buffet was great. Anything we could have wanted was... More

on our way from Chicago to Central Kansas (Traveling with a toddler), we stopped for the night at Hampton Inn Iowa City/Coralville. They only had one room left (Whew) The staff was very nice and attentive. The Hotel is right by Interstate 80, but we didn't hear any road noise. Breakfast was fantastic. Very clean hotel.

We are Hilton rewards members and live to stay at Hampton Inn when we travel. The last time we stayed at this location we were kept awake by noisy sex above us. This time, we booked ahead for a king and when we arrived.... Not one available. The check in process took 15 minutes and we were the only one... More

I stayed at this hotel for a college visit. The staff was pleasant, the room clean and the location was only 8 minutes away from the University. The only issue that we encountered was the breakfast buffet. It seems there was a young soccer team and families staying at the hotel and the breakfast area was very crowded at 7:30... More

Upon entering the room the TV would not work. Had to call maintenance. Red message light on phone would not go off. Was told to pick up the message and it would go off. The message was to a previous guest four days prior. Red lite would not go off and flashed all night. Coupled with that the thermostat did... More

The staff was very helpful. The accomodations were excellent. The location was perfect. The young lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Seriously...you're demanding a certain length on this stupid review? Really? How much exactly can one say? No wonder people don't take the time - annoying!

Just home from a long weekend at the Hampton. I chose this hotel due to its popularity on TripAdvisor and wasn't disappointed. The check in process was effortless and the greeting super friendly.

We arrived late and were able to walk a short distance on the property to have a cocktail and a good meal at the River City Bistro Bar & Grill which was on the property.

From one of the most friendly and helpful front desk workers to a outstanding room to an incredible breakfast - can't say anything wrong about our stay at the Hampton. My wife made the reservation and didn't get a suite(I'm spoiled!). I got over my disappointment very quickly. Oh, did I mention the great king size bed!
