We stayed for 2 days at the end of December. The hotel was relatively easy to find. The entrance to the hotel is a couple of blocks down the road from where the hotel is actually located on route 20. It puzzles you as you see the hotel but are wondering where the entrance is. The sign for the hotel on the road is small. As you round the corner and approach the hotel, it looks and is relatively small. The ambiance of the location is not really pretty in December. It may look better in the summer when every thing is green. Yes, the Rocky Bayou is there but the hotel is not "on the bayou". So, the first impressions are ok, but it does not wow you. It is not a vacation destination in and of itself. We were visiting friends and from that aspect it was great because of the price.
Check-in was easy and fast. We were on the first floor with a "bay view". That was a stretch.
The room itself was tasteful and welcoming. The bed was as we liked it as well as the pillows. The heating system was super quite. No complaints about the room. It was quite nice. The bathroom was nice and the extra toiletry amenities was a surprise and impressive. These are not seen even in 4/5 star hotels. Our night sleeps were perfect.
Regarding the breakfast, it was standard fair for a Hampton and ok. Of note was that the server, made sure there was plenty of food regardless of the mass of people that would sporadically come. One item was so-so on the menu for 1 day. This was the scrambled eggs -- I never had scrambled egg balls/clumps. These were some commercial brand out of a large bag. The prepared omelets the next day were much better.
Check-out was fast and easy without hassle.
Overall - a very good place if the objective is only to sleep and be out the rest of the day.
