We originally booked 2 nights here but moved to the Hilton Garden Inn after the first night and it was so much nicer and actually quite a bit less expensive than the Hampton Inn Brandon.
This was the worst Hampton Inn we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in quite a few. I don't know if our room was typical but this is what we got.
The room was really, really dark -- only one small window on one side of the room. On the other side of the window wall was a dark wood desk and dark wood tall wardrobe (instead of a closet) -- as I said the room was dark but the view outside was a bunch of trucks so we didn't miss much.
The bathroom was so small --- the small sink was angled so when you opened the door you had to squeeze in to clear the sink. There was an overpowering smell of disinfectant in the bathroom and there was residue of something that was sprayed on all the faucets.
The fridge made a loud humming noise all night long as it cycled off and on. And then there was the train noise! The hair dryer was missing, just the bag was provided. The breakfast area was just OK, definitely not as good as other Hamptons, and looked like it was unattended and not as clean. As we were packing up to leave, Housecleaning knocked on the door, then Maintenance, then someone was outside our room loudly shampooing the carpet--we couldn't get out of their fast enough!
