We stayed at the Hampton while taking a weekend trip to visit the Sudbury science centres. This was my first time staying overnight in Sudbury so I spent a lot of time reading the reviews and choosing which hotel to stay at - I was looking for a clean place with a swimming pool and a free breakfast. The Hampton was having a weekend sale and had everything I was looking for, so I booked for two nights and from the moment we checked in, I knew we had made the right choice! There was complimentary coffee in the lobby (medium, dark, decaf, also hot water for the tea and hot chocolate packets) which was a great perk being able to grab a free coffee on the way in and out of the hotel each day. The rooms are well-furnished, our room had two comfortable queen beds, plenty of pillows, a dresser, night stand, desk with HS Internet, and two sets of drapes (sheer and blackout). The bathroom was bright and spacious, lots of towels. Our room was on the 4th of 5 floors (the 5th floor was reserved for a wedding party) and gave a view of some of the local restaurants and shopping centres. The swimming pool was good for a family swim with young children, ranging from 3 - 5 feet depth. During our stay we used the pool three times: twice we shared with another family, once we had it all to ourselves. Two small complaints about the pool: 1) by evening the towels at the poolside had run out and we had to ask the front desk to replenish, and 2) there was no separate shower/change area for the pool like at other hotels I've visited; the shower was just on a wall on the deck at poolside. There was a complimentary breakfast buffet that was one of the best I've had at a hotel - three hot items that rotate daily (Sunday morning was sausage patties, scrambled eggs with ham and cheese, and seasoned home fries; Monday morning was crisp bacon, western omelette, and baked beans). Also offered is make-your-own waffles (batter and waffle iron provided), yogurt, cereal selection, fresh fruit and mixed fruit salad, bagels, muffins, milk, coffee, and a variety of juices. One of the other reviewers here commented that the breakfast tasted processed, so maybe it's improved since then because I just thought it tasted flavourful! (The only item I did not enjoy much was the mixed fruit salad, it looked great, but didn't taste very good). The breakfast was very filling and kept us going so that we only had to buy a very light lunch at the science centres and could splurge on nice dinners at the nearby family restaurants (East Side Mario's across the street was great!) The cleaning staff was very friendly, the front desk was average, and the breakfast room staff were very efficient at keeping everything stocked up - even with the huge wedding crowd on Sunday morning. The breakfast room itself is very nicely decorated, with a variety of seating options, and a TV. My biggest complaint is that they do not have a mini-fridge in the rooms. We had brought back some leftover pizza from the nearby Pizza Hut and had to keep it chilled on an ice tray from the ice machine because our room did not have a fridge. The complaints are minor though, and overall, I had a great stay and would recommend to others. The rate was reasonable, and the free breakfast and 24-hour coffee bar helped us to save money on our trip as well.
