When your unsure about what to select at times, you tend to go with what's familiar.
The Hampton Inn is a place you can't go wrong. The usual amenities, quality, and service is what you expect. This particular location isn't any different.
It's right on the corner of Milpitas Square, right by the 237 Freeway. Don't be alarmed, I've slept on several sides of the property including the freeway side and unless you are super duper highly sensitive, I slept like a baby with freeway noise not even an issue. Walls seem to be thick because you can't hear anything unless the other guests are stomping or making loving like they havn't done so in years.
The staff is always very nice and ready to assist at any given moment. The decor is modern, but not chique. The TVs need to be upgraded to the flatscreen variety. Beds are very comfortable. AC works very well. Everything has always been clean and housekeepers are nice and do a great job. The room itself is spacious. The included CONTINENTAL breakfast is expected. Eggs, bacon, potatoes, yogurt, pastries (bagels, etc) juices, etc. If you've been to a Hampton before, it's pretty much the same. But it works.
There are plenty of places to eat. Walking distance (1 minute away) is Milpitas Square which is housed with an array of Asian restaurants. There is also a supermarket where you can buy whatever you need. If you are feeling for more of a 10-20 minute walk, you can go over the overpass and you hit the more familiar places such as In and Out Burger, McDonalds, Taco Bell, and many other places to eat. Trust me, finding a place to eat here is no problem.
If you are a tourist, there is not much to do around here that is walking distance. Walking around this area too is safe, but BORING. There is nothing but commercial buildings. So location is SUBJECTIVE. If you are here for a business conference at one of the big companies, then it's a great location. But if you are here to tour around, unless you have a car, there are plenty of other places.
In conclusion, this is a nice place to stay if it fits the bill. Oh, there are only 2 suite rooms I believe. There is a pool. Wifi is free. There is no restaurant inside the property but no need with plenty of choices around. There is no room service.
Unless you are really super sensitive to noise, don't be afraid of being on the freeway side.
