“New, very comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a relatively new hotel, so everything was clean and tidy. Our room was very comfortable and we had a good sleep and breakfast in the morning. It is a few miles away from the town center, but with a car, there is easy access to the main road into town.

(1) We had been advised to get a room on the back side of the hotel away from the freeway due to noise concerns. After expressing our concerns, we were given a room over the entry to the hotel which was directly across from the freeway on-ramp. The traffic noise didn't get better until after 11:00 p.m. and then it started up again before 6:00 a.m.
(2) We didn't appreciate the dirty sock (not ours) behind the trash can between the chair and the television.
(3) The refrigerator had an annoying humming sound that cycled on and off the entire night.

Good hotel if doing business with Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo. The rates were reasonable and the service was decent. Our company will stay again next time we are in the area. I give the hotel a B- overall.

This is such a great hotel, with a very convenient location. The lobby was clean and attractive, breakfast was great. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was warm and welcoming. I will definitely stay at this hotel again in the future.

Easy to find, and jump on and off the 101 from the hotel location. Super clean, comfortable, and easy to park and check in. It is in it's own little island of hotels, not really within walking distance to any retail/food, but if you have a car it isn't a problem. FREE WIFI! Madonna Inn is about two exits away.

Have recently switched he'd from holiday inn and holiday inn express and have found that Hilton and Hampton provide a slightly better experience though in fairness you do pay a little more.

This was my first experience of Hampton and I like it. In particular the breakfast offering is some way ahead of the artery congealing offer at Holiday Inn Express.

The room was sufficient for. Family of 4 for 1 or 2 nights but I would not wish to spend longer.

The reception staff were polite efficient and welcoming but the lady at breakfast was clearly not having a great day. Still it did not mar the experience.

It is conveniently located and there are ample places to eat around the hotel.

It was a nice experience until the guest next door stated to snore. The walls between the rooms have no or very poor sound insulation. It was like the snorer was laying next to me. I called the reception desk and asked for their help. They said since the hotel was full there was nothing they could do. Not even ear plugs to offer. So my wife and I spent almost $200 for a night of NO sleep. I can't believe that a brand new hotel cold be designed and approved with such poor sound insulation. The solution would be to inject insulation in the walls between the rooms.

The breakfast was just OK and seating was limited.
The cookies at the reception ...”MARVELOUS”

The indoor pool and Jacuzzi were quite nice, protected from the wind.

The gym had minimal equipment. But that is the way most hotels are.
