I've stayed at the Hampton Inn Middletown, DE several times. The most recent stay was the first week in September, 2013. I found the staff friendly and courteous, as usual. The rooms are large and very comfortable. I always get a good night's sleep. And the place is always immaculate! We requested a non-smoking room but none were available. Usually, I can tell right away that a previous guest smoked in the room, but our room smelled fresh and clean. Either the previous guest did not smoke in there, or their cleaning staff is that good! Usually smoking rooms are a bit dustier than non-smoking ones, I've found. But this room was as clean as a whistle.
