We booked the hotel on-line using our Hilton Honor's points, so it was a complimentary non-smoking room with two queen beds. We arrived around 6:30 PM and the room was ready. I explained we were using our HH's points and the clerk said "Good for you!", which I thought was a little sarcastic. But, oh well. Check-in was super easy with no wait. We asked for three extra pillows. We were in a hurry, since we were going to a concert at Pop's in Sauget, IL, so we asked if we could pick them up on our way back through when we returned. That was not a problem. We also asked if they had cookies that a lot of the Hampton Inn's have at night, but we were told they did not offer those on the week-ends. The fireplace was lit and the lobby area was very nice. There was a pool close to the elevators. I could smell the chlorine when we were waiting. The room was on the second floor, room 220. It was very clean and the hotel appeared newer. Some HI's offer comp water/snacks in the room for HH's Members, but this one didn't. However, there was a individual cup coffee maker in the bathroom with the standard amenities. I also noticed a small room next to the check-in area where you could purchase items that you may have left at home. The location is not bad since it's right off of the highway. We drove back to the hotel around 11:00 PM that night and drove into Glen Carbon hoping to find a Taco Bell or any restaurant open, but there was nothing there except a small bar on the other end of town. It was deserted. There was a Casey's convenience store, but it was closed. We did find a Phillips 66 gas station across the road from the hotel that had frozen sandwiches, ice cream treats, etc. There was a microwave and refrigerator in our room, so if we would have bought a frozen sandwich, we would have been able to cook it in our room. After striking out on the food venture, we returned back to the hotel. The T.V. in the room was a 25 in rotating flat screen type, nothing fancy. The walls must have been very thin since we were just talking and the people next door were banging on the wall. The beds were pretty comfortable and we slept pretty good. The pillows were feather, not foam, so it's a good thing we got a few extra since they tend to sink down when you lie on them. The next morning we headed to breakfast around 9. The complimentary bar is open from 6-10 on Sunday mornings. We were extremely disappointed with the selection and quality of the breakfast. The eggs were the pre-formed circles that were so dried up, they were like rubber with turned up discolored edges. There was some terrible French toast sticks and that was about it for the hot items. No sausage or biscuits and gravy. They did have bread, plain bagels and few danishes. There was some fruit and a couple types of dry cereal/oatmeal in packages. They had coffee and juice to drink. It was honestly the worst breakfast we have ever had at a hotel, including lots of stays at other Hampton Inn's, La Quinta's, Drury Inn's, Hyatt Place, etc. Check-out was fine. We received a receipt under the door and just dropped the keys off at the front desk. Would we stay there again? Probably not, unless there are no other HI's available in the area. They do need some major work on their breakfast bar! If you are not planning on eating breakfast there, then it would be O.K..
