I got what I considered a great rate here - perhaps because it was a weekend stay in the middle of winter! The rooms are nice, but I had to move very soon after arriving due to rowdy kids (perhaps also attracted by the low rate) who were apparently playing football in their room above me, and some loud ones down the hall. The hotel was far from full, so getting me moved to the top floor on the other side was not a problem for the front desk, even though that entailed a slight room upgrade (with microwave & fridge, neither of which I used). The room was nicely appointed, the bed comfortable, and all worked as it should
Breakfast was OK but not any better than other midrange hotels ... in fact, I thought Hampton might be a slight notch above midrange, and expected a little bit better. In particular, the eggs seemed a bit strange, unnatural in size/shape of bits, and in texture.
What was very disappointing was the internet speed. I ran a speed test, and at 0.5 mbps, it was literally 99% slower than mine at home, where I have 50 mbps fiber optics in what is a typical residential package. Checking my webmail on Google, the chat feature would often not load because the speeds were so slow. In their defense, Hampton's connection page does warn you the speeds are not for video. Talk about an understatement! Even as a slow connection, it went in and out a fair bit.
As a purely sleep place, it's pretty good, though the walls (and floors) are thin. The food is OK - you'll have sustenance for the morning, if not the day. [For dinner, there's a Texas Roadhouse nearby which is pretty good.] But these days, most people depend on faster internet than this hotel offers, and it cramps one's style to stay connected on the road with a bottom-of-the-barrel internet service like Hampton Inn provides here.
Ask for top floor, otherwise you may hear those above you.

I am happy to inform you that our internet had an upgrade recently and are operating at a higher speed. As for breakfast I can assure you that our breakfast is Hampton standard. Our made-to-order waffles, oatmeal that have recently been added to our breakfast have had great feedback from many guest. I hope you are able to give us another try and see for yourself the various improvements to the internet and other areas of the hotel to make your next stay as enjoyable as you know and love the Hampton brand to be.
