“Typical of most Hamptons”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Hampton Inns are usually very nice as was this one. Clean, quiet, reasonable. I was a little dismayed there was not a shower mat. It made standing in the shower kinda risky. A lawsuit looking for a place to happen!! I also wonder why there was not a closed caption option on the TV? Being hearing challenged I know how to set the closed captions on most TV's. This one didn't have any.

Room Tip: Get one on the North side and higher up. The interstate is on the south side and a large Service ce...

We were generally satisfied with the Hampton Inn but the breakfast (scrambled eggs) was horrible. We complained to the hotel staff and they seemed to be familiar with our dissatisfaction because many other guests have taken a few mouthfuls and then tossd the remainder in the trash can. If you improve the eggs, we'll be back. Otherwise . . .

Excellent Hotel! Ideal lockation with a shuttle to the Hard Rock. Larger than normal hotel rooms, I felf that I was in a suite. Staff is kind, professional and personable. Hotel included a small shop for food, drinks and snacks. The small shop was important to me, I didn't have the time to leave the hotel for dinner. Hot breakfast buffet has many options to chose from.

Room Tip: All these room are larger than most hotel rooms.

Price has crept up since last year's stay, so value now is good, but not great. Average Hampton Inn. Not so great breakfast, slow lobby computer and noisy air conditioner for cons, but comfortable beds, very clean rooms as pros.

The hotel was very nice, clean, comfortable and very convenient to the casino where we were going. Also appreciated the shuttle service to and from the casino.I think that the complimentary breakfast could have been a little better. The eggs were not great, but it was nice to be able to get coffee and a bite to eat before checking out. We found the room very clean and comfortable. All in all it was a very good experience.

I wanted to spend the day at the State Fair and this hotel was an excellent location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was exceptionally clean. The beds are extremely comfortable and I really enjoyed breakfast.
