Great hotel. Staff were all friendly. Rooms are spacious and beds are very comfortable. Breakfast selection was awesome. We came from Raleigh just for dinner and we will come stay here again. Close to lots of good eats and antique shops

Hi Deb W; It’s exciting to read and receive 5 STARS knowing we have made another guest happy with our service. Kinston offers wonderful places to eat and shop with many civil war tours. On your next visit, please be sure to visit Kinston Welcome Center located across the street from the hotel that has a wonderful museum on the civil wars in Kinston and great tour guides throughout the county.

I have visited Kinston on business several times in 2013 and I will be visiting again in 2014. The Hampton is somewhat better than average. The staff is very helpful and the rooms are comfortable. They have a restaurant list that has choices for all tastes. I would not think of booking a room elsewhere when I visit.

We recently stayed overnight at the Hampton Inn, as were meeting a group of friends in Kinston to go to the well-regarded Chef and Farmer restaurant owned and operated by celebrity chef Vivian Howard. The hotel which was recently renovated, is about five minutes from the main downtown of Kinston. The king bed room was large, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was adequately sized with an especially well designed shower enclosure for an "drop-in" shower/tub unit. The in room heating and air conditioning was annoyingly noisy however. Staff were helpful. As noted by other travelers' reviews, the breakfast buffet was better than expected.

I recommend this hotel as the only place to stay in Kinston.

This was a clean, comfortable hotel. Friendly staff, quite rooms. While I did not take advantage of the food offerings at breakfast, the coffee was good. They apparenlty also have a "desert bar" some evenings, but I always arrived back from work after i was over. Only issue might be very slow elevators.

Scott698; Best Choice for Kinston is what we like to hear. On your next return, you need to try our Breakfast as we serve some wonderful hot items along with homemade waffles each morning. My apologies that you missed our Dessert Bar in the evenings and hope you get a chance to try it on your next visit. Thank you for your review concerning our elevators, I will have this looked at by our service contractor to see if we can’t speed things up. Best to you and hope to see you again at the Hampton Inn Kinston.

We were very pleased with this hotel. It was very clean and the staff was very helpful. My husband liked that there was a post-it note on the headboard that that all the sheets and bedspread were changed.

I recently stayed at the Kinston,NC on a business trip. Upon arrival at the hotel,the young lady at the desk had both myself and my business partner were checked in and had keys in hand in least than sixty seconds! I was so impresed with how friendly and helpful the staff was the whole stay.The rooms were great,no problems. I would highly recommend the hotel. I would certainly stay there again. I have paid more for a hotel room,but recieved so much less. I was pleased aand I am hard to please.

Room Tip: My room was fine on the south side

Very friendly, helpful, and competent staff. Convenient location for folks heading to downtown Kinston for brewery tour or to Chef and Farmer etc. Clean, quiet room. Excellent internet speed. Would definitely stay here again if in Kinston.
