“You disappointed us Hampton.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

You disappointed us Hampton. We have stayed at Hampton Inns across the country and have never been disappointed until Aug. 27 2011. We moved our kid into school in Columbus and got her settled. Checked into the hotel @ 8:30 and was so looking forward to the hot tub and a good night’s sleep. Not to be, changed and headed to the pool, closed @ 9. Went back and watched a little TV and tried to sleep. Hotel was very noisy with banging in the building, trucks exiting on the exit ramp and the constraint rumbling of the railroad out back. The room was clean, but the shower had mold in it. And not just a little. Need to tell them you have to kill the mold before caulking over it. I never expected to see this at a Hampton Inn.

Dont believe all you read. I was sceptical at the bad reviews regarding location. The location may not be the best, however it is not surrounded with drug dealers, prostitutes, etc. It is located next to some storage units, outside city limits. Common sence with any hotel, in any city, is to not go walking away alone at night. I felt perfectly safe. The staff is the best, friendly, will go out of their way for you. The pool and work out room is great, the breakfast is awesome. I would go back in a minute.

.After reading previous reviews I was a little worried but I was going to try it anyways. What a pleasant surprise. The rooms were clean and smelled good. The beds are very comfortable with extra soft pillows and the neighborhood is nice and quiet. The staff was friendly and tried to help out any way they could. Breakfast is good and I love the cookies at the front desk. I am coming back in May with a group of 4. I will not stay at any other Hampton Inn. I am staying on the side that faces the rail road. No noise what so every. Actually I have a hard time getting up in the mornings I am so comfortable

Nothing against this property itself, it was very nice, typical Hampton Inn. Internet, TV, pool, etc. were all fine. However, the location in a bad neighborhood, down a strange frontage road, almost like an alley. I missed the entrance to the road and ended up going around the block. Across the road was this old, large hotel, all the widows broken out and burned out, trash and weeds everywhere, furniture and mattresses hanging out upper story windows. I would have felt better if there had been security in the parking lot.

The Hotel itself is middle of the road - nothing overly great, nothing bad, but the location is absolutely horrible. At the end of a dark rutted up road in an area of abandoned buildings is not the normal place you would imagine a Hampton Inn being located. As a Hilton Diamond member I stay in an awful lot of Hampton Inns on a regular basis, and have never been so disappointed in the location of the property. My word of advice - Stay Away!

I've stayed at this hotel twice, once in March 2008 and once in May 2008. Both stays were very pleasant. The rooms were clean and smelled good. The beds are very comfortable and the neighborhood is nice and quiet. The staff was friendly and tried to help out any way they could. I would stay here again if I were in the area.

I had a problem with the heat/air conditioning in my room. I couldn't get a comfortable temperature. I was either way too hot or too cold. Perhaps it was just me.

Location is the key to any good hotel experience. Unfortunately the location of this hotel is awful. It is tucked away on an old access road in a “transitional” neighborhood. This hotel can try all it wants but the poor location is the trump card.

The hotel itself is fine. Standard middle of the road Hampton Inn. All the typical hotel services were fine. Free paper, Internet worked, Breakfast was ok and gym was small but fine. It even has an indoor pool and hot tub

But the location is the drag here. Hidden from the interstate by a huge mill and active (noisy) railroad track this place is hard to fine. It is even harder to get in and out of. The local area is a mix of strip mall and strip clubs so not the best. There are many gas stations and fast food places about, but this is a pay first kind area if you catch my drift.

The hotel staff was friendly and rooms clean. If you are just staying the night this place might be fine. For longer stays I would look elsewhere.
