“One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at, Period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

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.

I have stayed in this hotel many times over the last 2+ yrs. It is consistent in it's cleanliness and has an extremely welcoming and professional staff. The complimentary breakfast is always fresh and continually restocked by the friendly staff. The complimentary passes for the Aquatic Club were an added bonus (since the hotel pool was closed for the winter).

Thank you for the great review. I always love to read about return visits. I appreciate your comments on the our staff and hotel. Our staff is second to none and does everything in their power to ensure our guests are treated with the utmost respect and care. Glad you enjoyed the aquatic center passes. Since we don't have an indoor pool we provide those at no charge and we also proved free passes to the local fitness center if a guest is looking for a more enhanced workout. Again, thank you for the review and we look forward to many more visits. Barry Eagle

My wife and I had the opportunity to spend some time at the Swansboro Hampton Inn & Suites last week and I can say nothing but GOOD about this hotel!

The rooms/suites were clean and comfortable and the amenities were outstanding. The manager, Ms. Linda W. Thornley was most helpful with any questions we had.

That spirit was pervasive throughout the entire hotel. People friendly and helpful! The room rates were quite reasonable. One really get's their money's worth here.

Out of all the hotels we've stayed at, from Florida to Virginia, this ranks among the top three.

Going to the southern outer banks? Stay at the Swansboro Hampton Inn and Suites. You'll be glad you did.

Green Features: They're top rate! I believe that a lot of thought has been given as relates to environmentally-friendly practices throughout the entire building. These people care about the excellent services they provide.

Thank you so much for the kind review and the nice comments on Linda and our staff. Glad to know we were one of your top 3 hotels on your travels on the east coast. Our hotel was chosen as one of Hilton's top Hamptons in the US. We won the Connie Award which was named after Conrad Hilton and given to the top 10 hotels in the US. Our staff works extremely hard to ensure our guests are taken care off and receive the best the experience possible. We hope to see you again in the near future. Barry Eagle

The hotel was nice and the breakfast staff were excellent. However, the hotel does not handle a DJ very well. I was on the second floor above the room the DJ was in. Very loud unable to read or watch TV due to noise. I called front desk they assured me the volume was going to be lowered at 10:00 pm- didn't happened I again called front desk was again assured it would be lowered -didn't happen! Very bad place to stay - appt next am unable to get sleep due to noise. Do not recommend this hotel!

I am truly sorry for the experience you encountered. We did not expect the music to be as loud as it was and have addressed the issue with our front desk personnel who should have stopped the party at 10am as it was contracted. I believe our General Manager has reached out to you to address the issues you encountered during your stay. We do care about your business and hope that you will reconsider utilizing our hotel for a future stay. We take great pride in the guest experience and providing an enjoyable environment. Obviously, we are very disappointed when we let someone down but your review does help us to evaluate future functions in our meeting space and to determine ways to ensure this doesn't happen again.

This hotel is a home away from home for me... I travel there at least four times a year & stay for a week or more. The staff is always friendly & helpful, and the complimentary apples/cookies were really good on this recent trip...I usually resist the cookies but couldn't resist this time... This is a convenient location with a variety of fuel, restaurants & stores in Swansboro making relaxation after work or enjoying some leisure time easy. For staying a little longer having good laundry & work out amenities right there is great. But the best thing is the people, I enjoy being treated like a VIP when on the road, don't "expect" it, but appreciate it when it's part of the package. I really like staying at this Hampton.

So glad that you have gotten to know our staff and enjoy all the amenities of the hotel and have been able to explore the great town of Swansboro.

Sounds like you have been able to enjoy all the great restaurants and shops that Historic Swansboro offers.
