“A Hampton "Inn" need of some TLC”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

While the location makes it an easy-on/off from I-459 and there are a number of restaurants nearby this property is in need of a little TLC. It's disconcerting to step into the tub and leave black footprints from the soiled carpets. As a loyal Hilton Honors Diamond member I stay almost exclusively in Hilton branded properties (and I've stayed here before). The age of the property and lack of care (I.e. dirty carpets, chips in the furnishings and dirty walls, etc) leave a lot to be desired from a property that charges three figures for their rooms.

thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate so much your loyalty to our brand. We will start remodeling our lobby and fitness center soon. Painting is underway on our building with bright, fresh colors. Recently had our inspection and rating was very high for cleaniness, our staff, and breakfast. Come and stay with us again please.

I was here on business and this hotel was superb. Excellent location, immaculate grounds, friendly and helpful staff, nicely appointed and clean rooms. Breakfast was good and also had a managers reception.

Stayed here in April for one night. The room was spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable. They had a decent free breakfast. They also have a small gym with a few machines which was good for a morning workout.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Stayed there for two nights recently and will be back. The staff is great, all are friendly. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean, however, the AC makes quite a bit of noise. The breakfast was great, although there was no gravy for the biscuits and I live in the south and really need my gravy. Other than that it was just fine. Pool was closed for a few hours during the day, but it opened quickly and we spent the evening by the pool. Wish it was open a bit later as there is nowhere else outside to sit. I will probably stay again here when I return.

I had great difficulty with guest services/ reservations but when we arrived at the hotel the staff bent over backwards to make our stay perfect. From the front desk, to the manager, to the housekeeper the staff knew just what to do. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. Our staff even provided our soccer team with surprise snacks! We would stay anywhere that staff worked. I would suggest calling the hotel you book on site once you have made reservations to verify the details if you have special requests.

The Hampton Inn in Trussville has one of the friendliest staffs. I frequently arrive very late and upon arrival the front desk made me feel so welcome. She had me checked in and on my way to my room in minutes. The breakfast the next morning was hot and fresh not to mention good coffee which is a rare thing for most hotels. It is well worth the short drive to Birmingham to say in Trussville, Alabama. The facility was well appointed and clean. Thank you for making my long tiring trip much more pleasant.

Room Tip: I like the first floor for convenience to the fitness room and business center.

Hampton Inn is usually a great place to stay. Well know for clean rooms. This hotel was clean and service was good, but maybe just a little under par for a Hampton Inn. For the price you pay to stay at a Hampton Inn you expect top notch accommodations. We did not have water at the hotel for the first couples of hours. Luckily we were not needing it at the time. very congested area. Non stop traffic.
