The staff at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Tulare really understand how to make someone feel like a guest instead of a customer. Everyone, from the person who checked us in to a maintenance man we passed in the hallway, had a smile and friendly words for us.
The breakfast was good and the woman at the buffet was working hard to make sure everything was plentiful and refreshed.
This is a chain hotel; part of the Hilton family. If you have stayed at Hampton's before, this is a really nice one.
