Every time my family comes to visit the area, there is no other option BUT to stay at the Hampton Inn in Swansboro. We have been staying there the past 4 years while I was stationed at Camp Lejeune and every single visit was a pleasure. The service is outstanding and the rooms are exceptional, especially for the price with a military discount. More than once have I called the front desk in the morning to request a later checkout because the beds were too comfortable to rush out of and every single request was granted. I will be leaving the area in the next month, but if i ever find myself back in the area, I know exactly where my family and I will be staying.
