“Clean, Comfortable, and Pleasant Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

I booked the room in advanced and me, my wife and son stayed for one night traveling from North Carolina to Texas. First of all Hampton Inns are NOT economy hotels i.e., Motel 6, Econo Lodge, etc., therefore their prices are a bit more and I consider them in the moderate price range as compared to the economy hotels. Here is a list of pros and cons as I see them in my opinion:

Pros:
- I thought the staff was courteous and professional. I did not have the bad experience as some other reviewers as the front desk staff greeted me as I entered the door and the breakfast staff greeted me as I entered the dining area.
- There were complimentary assorted cookies at the front desk.
- The beds are super comfortable and I LOVE the crisp clean and bright white sheets and duvet covers. Many hotels use bed comforters and are not cleaned often. This is one of the reasons we stay at a Hampton Inn as you know all your bedding is clean and you can tell the bedding is clean.
- Room came equipped with mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker.
- There was a manager's social from 6:00 - 7:00 pm with free finger foods and the front desk provided tickets for a free cocktail.
- The breakfast was more than adequate: delicious bacon, biscuits and gravy, waffles, oatmeal, good assortment of pastries (had sliced pound cake, awesome), coffee, juices, yogurt and fresh fruit.
- The location was great with numerous restaurants, stores, and a Navy Air Station near by.

CONS:
- Only breakfast negative is NO scrambled eggs but they did have hard boiled eggs.
- The beds were true double beds, just slightly larger than a twin and small than a full bed. Some hotels have double beds that are more like full size. My wife had to sleep on the other bed with my son as both of us would not fit on one bed (but to be honest we are both "large cartons").
- There are numerous large scuff marks throughout our room and hotel walls that make the hotel seem a bit worn. Many of them could be taken care of with a "Magic Eraser".
- The breakfast area was well decorated, but the tables were too small. They were built for couples and not for more than two people.

Overall the stay was pleasant and I would recommend this hotel. My major priorities are clean and comfortable beds (which are a Hampton Inn standard) and a descent breakfast which this hotel met. I understand that many travelers look for budget hotels, but I rather have a good night's sleep and a good breakfast to start the next day of traveling...good job as usual Hampton!

Room Tip: Book on-line with an AARP or Government discount, saves you some money.

We stopped looking for two rooms. The man at the front desk was rude. He gave little to no eye contact and answered questions in a hurried and hateful tone. He was completely uninterested in renting rooms to us so we went down the road to the Holiday Inn where we were greeted warmly and treated with great customer service.

I stayed at the Hampton Inn for 3 nights. Great check-in, great employees, nice rooms. The hotel is right off the interstate, so very convenient when traveling. And it's close to many restaurants like Olive Garden, Chili's & McAlister's. Close to downtown, too. We were in a double, plenty of room, the bathroom was nice-sized, too. Stay here, good rate, too.

Thanks for letting us know about your stay. We loved having you here and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Old room, run down facility. Needs a redo of the rooms with new furniture. Wished I'd stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn next door or at the Holiday Inn Express across the road. Fitness Center ok but otherwise was not a good hotel to stay at.

I have stayed in at least 8 different hotels in Meridian, but I will be coming back next year! The price was reasonable and the building checked all of my boxes: great breakfast, pool, comfy rooms! The in room microwave and fridge were especially helpful with my 18 month old, as well as, the very spacious room. I truly enjoyed my stay and ....I'll be back!

We will be glad to have you come back. It was great having you here and we appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and the in-room fridge and microwave. We invite you to stop by the lobby on Mon - Sat evenings for light snacks and beverages as part of our Manager's Reception. The reception is a great way to unwind and relax after a long day on the road or after visiting the attractions in Meridian.

The Hampton Inn in Meridian suffers particularly in comparison with its next-door neighbor, the Hilton Garden Inn. The latter is as good a roadside motel as you will find, and the former is just a place to sleep that is getting a little frayed around the edges, in spite of a recent lobby and breakfast room upgrade.

There is the usual free hot breakfast, with the usual emphasis on sugars, starches, and fats, and the usual dearth of fresh fruit.

The front desk is generally adequate.

All in all, choose to spend a few dollars more next door at the Hilton. It's worth the difference.

Room Tip: Far enough off the Interstate that there is no traffic noise in any room. Ask for a room away from...

Stayed over night while on the way to Pigeon Forge. Not bad but also not one of the better Hampton's. We always try to stay at a Hampton and this one rates average. Hard to find using GPS directions. Rooms felt a little tired.
