We were there for a college visit. Great place to stay when visiting SIU-E; very close to the school and the quaint downtown is nice as well. Also a great jumping off point for Cahokia Mounds, and St. Louis... Suite was clean, storage was plentiful (dresser and big closet) staff was polite and helpful. Kitchenette area was a plus. If my daughter ends up attending SUI-E, the Hampton will be our home away from home.
