At the 2.5 star level on priceline I have gotten used to variable quality levels but this is one of the best of that category. I was hoping for the nearby Hyatt Place or Residence Inn but the Hampton Inn proved worthy for a basic place to stay overnight.
Location is pretty easy to find and is close enough to shopping and restaurants. I haven't stayed at a Hampton Inn for maybe 12 years and I was expecting the same bland room I remembered. What I got was a lot more than I expected. As you would expect of a property over 20 years old, it has been renovated. Outside it is nothing special but inside it is clean, fresh, comfortable. The front desk staff is as friendly and cheerful as I have ever experienced. The nonsmoking room was clean and bright. As stated before in other reviews there was no fridge, microwave, or pool, but the room was comfortable and they had a nice breakfast buffet. There is one computer terminal in the lobby which is convienent for a quick check of your email but some lady was letting her brat kids play solitare without regard for others. Shame on the staff for allowing that and not putting a time limit of maybe 5 or 10 min on its use.
In conclusion, I could stay there again but I will probably pay a little more for one of the many 3 star hotels in the area. A swim and soak in the hot tub was missing from this stay.
