We booked this Hampton Inn to stay in for one night as part of a 16 day trip with my husband, our adult son and myself. We like Hampton Inns and being on Main Street seemed like it would be an advantage as we would be able to get out and walk around a bit.
All the previously mentioned construction on Main Street is completed. However, on the day we arrived, there was going to be an event on Main Street. So, some of the streets were closed for that and we had to navigate our way around that.
Check in was fine. The elevator is in kind of a funny location and it’s a little difficult to maneuver the luggage cart onto it. Our room was okay, but felt like it could have been cleaner. The pool is outdoors, looked a little forlorn and we did not use it while we were there. There are no laundry facilities in the hotel, but you are able to use those in the hotel right next door, which is what we did. Breakfast was okay, but not as good as we have come to expect from Hampton Inns. Check out was fine as well.
We arrived on a Thursday afternoon and found out that there was to be a farmer’s market that evening on Main Street, explaining the street closings. We did walk around a bit at that and bought a few souvenirs.
Now, on to the problems with this hotel. Through no fault of the hotel itself, they were evidently having a charitable pancake breakfast in the building next door that faced our room. At 6:15 a.m., a man came on a loudspeaker between the buildings and began announcing a welcome to the pancake breakfast and other pertinent information about it. It was so loud that when it woke me, I actually thought it was something coming through the hotel’s PA system at first. He continued to make announcements every few minutes, so that was the end of our sleep. I did hear at least one other guest complaining about the noise to the front desk, to which the clerk responded “Was it loud?”
After showering, we decided to go down to breakfast. I don’t know what happened in that hall on our floor the night before, but the smell was terrible. It was almost enough to gag you.
There clearly aren’t enough luggage carts, so we had to wait about 20 minutes for someone to finish with one so we could check out and get on our way.
I did contact Hampton Inn after we returned home. The hotel manager emailed me and offered a refund, but we declined. Chalk it up to live and learn!
All in all, we won’t stay at this Hampton Inn again.
