I reserved a room for $93 per night and at checkout was charged $99. This is bait and switch and should be avoided. Plenty of comparable options in the area. The area the hotel is in is on a dead end street next to I-75. The parking lot at night did not feel secure and was not well lighted. The rooms were updated and had some character. Bathroom was tiny and average. Still had the feel of a room in the 1970's. The front desk was not manned when I arrived and I waited 5 minutes for someone to notice. They did not acknowledge I had made reservations as a Hilton Honors member. Every time I went to the desk it was unmanned and I had the impression they did not care. I could hear personal conversations about parties and shopping coming from the back and personal sounding phone calls. I stayed two nights and when I returned to the room the first night I noticed they had not restocked the regular coffee. The young lady who assisted me was cordial and gave me about 8 packets. I did not notice housekeeping had not replaced the coffee cups and I was forced to use the half cups in the room. The pillows were not comfortable and I got very little sleep. I was working at a camp for kids so losing sleep was very stressful. I have stayed at other Hampton Inns in the past couple of years and they were all more fresh in design and character. The Hampton Inn was a bit tired and so was the staff.
