“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2008

I travel frequently for work and almost always stay at Hilton properties. However, this trip was somewhat disappointing.

Check in was fairly smooth and the hotel has a cocktail hour from 5 to 6:30 where you get a coupon for 2 drinks and there are chips and crackers. This was nice, but could not cash in both coupons at once to take the drinks up to my room. I could almost understand why they do that, as underage kids would not get a hold of alcoholic beverages.

I had reserved a king bed, but got a queen. And I had too much going on to request a room change and move around. The room was clean, so I did not want to complain about the bed.

The wireless internet was not working and there was not wired connections. Since I was unable to get work done, I went to bed.

I had the heat set on low, just below the middle of the dial for temperature. During the night, I woke up to the curtains standing straight out due to the fan and it was about 80+ degrees in the room.

I got up at 5:30am to take a shower and there was very little hot water. And I tried again about 90 minutes later and it was even colder.

The breakfast was okay, but the hot options were quite greasy. The juice machine must have been running low on the concentrate as both the apple and orange juice looked like slightly dyed water, and did not have any of the juice flavor.

The location is fairly convenient and many dining options around.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2008

We decided to stay at the Hampton for the last night of a 15 day road trip as we wanted something nice. Boy, were we pleased with this property. We stayed at two other Hampton Inns on this trip and many on previous trips, and this one was one of the best. Everything was really perfect, from a welcoming check in to a fine breakfast with more choices than usual to a pleasant check out. The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The internet service was great. The pool looked nice, even though we didn't use it. There are many restaurant choices in the area, so you won't go hungry. In all, a great stay!

One of the BEST Hamptons we have ever stayed at!
The room was immaculate, roomy, and the beds were EXCELLENT!
They had those lovely white down comforters, feathery white pillows, a bed tray that you could use for reading or working, an excellent breakfast buffet, and exceptionally well staffed..... A+ for this Hampton!
Great job on behalf of all the staff, as well as the girls who kept the rooms pristine, ,,,,well done! Thanks for a great stay....

In early October 2006 we stayed at the Hampton Inn in Marion Illinois. It was above average and I would highly recommend it. The staff was friendly, the rooms spotless, newer furnishings and the beds very comfortable.

My husband and I stayed here for one night while apartment hunting. Hampton Inn has done a lot of updating. Their beds are comfortable and high up off the ground. The have free high-speed internet in the rooms and wireless internet in the lobby. The soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and mouthwash all have a "relaxation" theme. Very nice and easy to use alarm clocks. The free continental breakfast was yummy and substantial. Three types of coffee, flavored coffee creamer, bagels, donuts, sweet rolls, instant oatmeal, fresh fruit, sausages, and french toast sticks were all available. We paid $101.11 for one night (with taxes) for a king bed in a non-smoking room. All-in-all we were very pleased!

I stop here often since it is the 1/2 point of my trip from Florida to the UP of Michigan. Friendly staff, especially the cook/bartender who came in extra early the morning to cook since we were leaving early and we would have missed the breakfast buffet. Nice Happy hour in evening. Appleby's and Don Evans are in the same parking lot. Mall is close. Nice rooms decorated nicely with big beds and classy furniture. Weight room and indoor pool.
