I stayed at the hotel with a friend of mine recently as we were traveling together. He was a little ahead of me and told me that he booked us up at a Hampton, which I am usually fine with because I know Hampton has good hotels overall. This one is just as nice as many others I have stayed at so upon arrival I was confident that we had found a good little hotel to stay the night. We had a competition to prepare for so we knew we were going to have a late night in the lobby, we got a late check out ahead of time, and went on about our night. The stay up to that point was completely fine. Our problems started in the morning around 9-930 when we got our first knock on the door from housekeeping. I don't know why they didn't know we were a late check out but fine, we let the woman who barely spoke English know we had a late check out and had gotten to bed late, no problem, go back to sleep. Housekeeping then proceeded to knock on our door Every. Half. Hour. after that. LIterally, almost on que, we would get a rap on the door (I don't know if it was the same woman or not, at one point I was just yelling from my bed, but there was the same knock with a ring on, open the door with a "Oh, so sorry!" before closing the door and going away again) I swear it was like clockwork. It happened 4 times from 10am to 12. My roommate and I were trying to time our sleep for a good 6-7 hours of sleep before the competition (we had been up till 5 am to prepare), we ended up getting a broken 3.5-4 hours at best. The competition lasted until almost midnight, and then I had a 4.5 hour drive home.
I came to the Hampton for some restful peace and quiet to prepare, and to get some sleep. While it was a nice place with a nice lobby to prepare at, housekeeping would NOT let us get our peace and quiet for sleep and it made for an absolutely miserable day, competition (I still did well but it was a lot more exhausting than it would/should have been), and a really miserable drive back to Hilton Head, SC loaded with lots of caffeine and loud music to stay awake. The best part was in the morning when we told the guy at the front desk, he shrugged us off like this was completely normal. Then he asked us if we had a "do not disturb" sign up like that would make up for repeatedly telling the housekeepers to leave us alone. Because of my lack of sleep I just wanted to scream at him for his callousness but walked out instead.
The hotel lost my trust to provide me with a good nights sleep. Yes its nice they have redecorated and it looks fine, but the housekeeper/housekeepers lack of understanding and aggressively trying to get us to leave and the front desk guy unresponsive, I'm just never going back.
