I hesitated, due to lukewarm ratings on tripadvisor, but needing two rooms using Hilton points, I found this a bargain at 12,500 points when everything else in Amarillo was twice the "price", so I gave it a chance. I'm so glad I did. The staff is gracious and friendly, accommodated our early arrival, and even found adjoining rooms for us. There was a free managers' happy hour the first evening (a Wednesday), which we missed, and then the free breakfast was what really set this apart from other Hampton Inn's. Where I'm used to EITHER eggs, or biscuits&gravy, or some other main course, this place had it all: eggs, ham, oatmeal, waffles, pastries, biscuits, gravy, cereal, fruit, and more.
The rooms were comfortable and clean.
My only warning would be that if you have trouble with stairs, request a ground-floor room, maybe ahead of time, because there is no elevator to the second floor. Also, make sure to inspect your bill. One of our party probably accidentally rented a movie, but since he turned it off after a minute, the front desk promptly removed the charge.
