I found this hotel to be very clean and orderly. My room, King suite was very nice. The refrigerator kept everything cold. The TV and remote worked fine. I loved the desk area, it was great for charging all of the electronics. One side of the bed had electrical outlets and USB ports but the other side didn't. It would... More

I like staying at Hampton Inns because the facilities are always clean and the staff is friendly. I love the breakfast bar which allows me to have a meal without having to dine out. I have chosen Hampton Inn for other family members when they are traveling or visiting me in Indianapolis.

We stayed here ironically during the same weekend the Antique Roadshow was in town, so the hotel was packed with attendees for that event. The rooms have been nicely upgraded, except for the bathrooms. There is no fan in the bathroom to avoid fogging up the mirror, and the hairdryers are some of the smallest, least powerful I have encountered.... More

Found the help VERY friendly and anxious to please guests. Shuttle service excellent. Breakfast could use some meats with the eggs. TV could use some movie channels. Over all this is a good place to stay

Attended US Marine Corps League national convention. This property was located close to host hotel and provided excellent shuttle service to the host hotel. The room was adequate, but was a little small compared to some Hampton Inn rooms. The room was clean and well furnished. However, it did not have a refrigerator, which would have been helpful.

Nice place and have stayed many times over the years but problem after problem this time... reservation wrong, sewage smell in room, door lock broken, breakfast problems with broken equipment and a staff that could not wait to shut it down. Will go here again but expect these problems fixed.

As usual, this Hampton Inn did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and the accommodations excellent as usual. I love Hampton's breakfast, especially the sausage. As far as the room goes, the pillows are nice, nice, nice, and I am so glad we have the modern TV's now.

We really liked the hotel. Clean' quiet and a great breakfast. Staff was very helpful. The zero button on our phone did not work. The y took care of that and we resolved a credit card issue very quickly. There was no wait, as there is at other nice hotels.

Business travel can is often an adventure. One does not want an adventure with respect to lodging. As with almost every Hilton property, the property does what I want and need in business travel accommodations. Uneventful, simple, straightforward provision of services. Easy check in, easy check out, clean comfortable rooms, etc.
