We had no trouble at check in. The Hampton was easy to find. Parking was more than ample. We requested a top floor away from the elevator and that is what we got. The room was clean and well stocked. The bed was a king and nicely done in typical Hampton fashion. The free cookies and popcorn were nice. My... More

I stopped in at this downtown Charleston, WV, location on the way to the southern U.S. for a one-night stay. As a diamond-level Hilton brand member, I have stayed at Hampton Inn's all over the country. This hotel is close to all of the major highways, so it is a very good loction for people passing through town. My room... More

I stayed here in April/May for business. As always, the staff are very accommodating. I had one issue while I was staying there. I left some magazines on my bed before heading out for the day. When I came back to my room expecting my bed to be made, I instead found a note that said "Too many personal belongings... More

We stayed here on three different nights within a ten day period. Our first night was perfect and went off without a hitch, they even let us check in a couple hours early. The third night was also great. The second night was a disaster! We booked online as usual and when we checked in it never occurred to us... More

Overall this is a nice hotel. Although our room was claimed to be non-smoking, there was certainly an odor that made me believe the contrary. The breakfast was adequate, but if you're looking for a place to sit and eat, it wasn't available.

The hotel is average, the staff is excellent, and the downtown entertainment is out of this world. Who would have thought that Charleston would have river front entertainment. While I was there on business, the front desk staff shared the river front entertainement. I saw Mother Nature and a lead singer who sounded alot like Stevie Nicks. The free concert... More

Stayed one night while we were on the road. It's adjacent to the highway so road noise might be an issue w/ rooms on that side, we stayed on the opposite side from the highway and didn't have any problems. The A/C unit was quiet too. The shuttle driver will take you wherever you need to go. Took us to... More

I found this to be a typical, consistent Hampton - friendly staff, clean rooms, standard breakfast, small workout room. I would stay here again. The only reason I mention check their schedule before booking is that during my stay there was a children's dance competition (5-15 yr olds) over the weekend that caused a lot of grumbling with guest due...

An older bldg., but fairly well maintained, and clean. A busy weekend in town, but we were able to book one Q and one K on Thurs. Staff was very accommodating to our need due to family funeral. Again, hoping that soon Hampton makes arrangements for breakfasts, but if you don't expect restaurant-type service with "real" eggs, one can be... More
