“One of the best Hampton Inns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

A very pleasent three night stay. Efficient check in, clean everywhere, large rooms, comfortable beds, very quiet (except other guests slamming doors), super breakfast about sums it up. Excellent management makes this place work. Staff is well trained and friendly. It's a bit north of downtown so somewhat away from many attractions but fine if you have a car. As the name implies, it's about the closest property to the Academy. It deserves it's high TA rating.

Thank you for your kind remarks on TripAdvisor....we do appreciate you choose to stay with us. Yes, we are on the north end of town so it's quiet here and not to congested. The walking park next door adds to some relaxing activity. We do have some wonderful staff here and I will certainly pass on the nice comments. Hope to see you again.

We were greeted by Jesse at check in who was outgoing and made us feel welcome right from start. He was knowledgeable about local attractions and willing answer any questions. Rooms were comfortable and clean with nice size refrigerator. We had a small maintenance issue on second day which was promptly fixed by time we returned in afternoon. Would definitely stay here again.

This was the best hotel experience we have ever had. The Hotel was beautiful, clean and very friendly and professional. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Any request was handled immediately and with kindness. The breakfast was fresh no matter what time we headed down to meal. We will definitely seek out Hampton Inn's again.

Have stayed in this motel multiple times. Have always been satisfied with the helpful and courteous staff. Hotel is conveniently located close to I-25, but quiet and convenient to local eateries and shopping. Have never been disappointed with my stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Hotels with #1 ratings have a lot to live up to, and for the most part this hotel met expectations. Our king suite with pull-out sofa and balcony had the three qualities I value most in any hotel room: it was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Some little luxuries sweetened the deal; the lemon water in the lobby, the balcony with mountain view, the curved shower curtain, the microwave and "kitchen" sink were all appreciated. I particularly appreciated our ability, on the third floor, to open our window and balcony to the cool night air. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed the indoor pool and outdoor whirlpool. There were a few minor imperfections which, to be honest, really didn't detract from our comfort at all. The room, pool, and whirlpool were all on the small side. The sofa bed had sheets on it, but there were no blankets or pillows for it in the room; we had to call for those. They arrived promptly, but the blanket was had a couple of small holes in it. The bathroom didn't have an exhaust fan, although the hotel must have pretty good ventilation because steam did clear out in relatively short order. Breakfast was standard Hampton Inn fare. All in all, we had a very pleasant, comfortable stay at this hotel and would happily stay there again.

Room Tip: Third floor with balcony facing north -- very quiet and lots of access to fresh air.

Wow...thatn you for such a nice review about our beautiful property. Yes, the king suite balconies are very popular here especially with the mountain views. I think it is the best place to sit and have a cup of coffee in the mornings. :} We do have an extra blanket and pillow in our closets, but I am glad to hear that our front desk staff quickly helped you out. Our staff will be very encouraged to hear your stay went so well. We sure hope you will be back again soon.

We are always extremely pleased when we stay here. The hotel is comfortable and clean and the staff are very kind and helpful. We always use the fitness room, pool, and hot tub and they are always clean. We enjoy the breakfast and love the cookies in the afternoon! We have stayed for different lengths from one night up to two weeks and were happy each time with everything.

I consider myself fair in reviews and write about good and bad stays. I was really looking forward to staying here being that it was rated #1. The lobby was nice, check-in by Caitlin was ok, and the disappointment set in when I got into the room. I had a double queen room on the 2nd floor right above the pool area. The room smelled a bit off, like mildew and sewage, the furniture was scratched, and the towels were due to be replaced. I had asked for a room to be away from road noise and elevator noise and so instead got a room above the pool and had to listen to splashes and screams until a little past 10. Luckily, Donald was able to help me in the morning and took my request seriously and switched me to a different room on the same floor that's not above the pool. Unfortunately, that room was not any better overall. There was a different off putting smell in the room, almost like mildew and dirty gym clothes. The shower curtain didn't look like it was replaced, there was a yellow ring around the bottom of the toilet, and there was mildew around the tub - it seemed like the smell came from the bathroom. Instead of pool noise this room had the outdoor hot tub noise. The window stopper to keep the window locked was removed and I had to attempt to get it back on and the caulk around the AC was cracked. The desk was dirty with crumbs and dried up smudges of something.
On the plus side, the staff was nice and breakfast was the typical Hampton rotating breakfast.
Maybe the suites are updated and better but the normal double queens that I saw in just one trip were not ok and did not deserve to be #1 in town. I would not stay here again and not just because it doesn't deserve to be #1 but because the rooms were not what you would expect from a typical Hampton.
