“Great Hotel, Great Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

We stayed here on our way to Myrtle Beach, SC. It was a great Hampton Inn. Great breakfast, the rooms were very comfortable. (I even slept on the pullout couch and got a great night's sleep.) Its right off the expressway and located very close to a few restaurants and a WalMart is right across the street.

I used the fitness center which was very nice and overlooks the outdoor pool. It would have been nice to have a hottub, but oh well. There is also a lake that you can walk around off the back of the hotel, which we did before we took off the next morning. Lots of wildlife to look at. Its a .65 mile walk all the way around. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is very well run. It is clean and neat. Great view of the Lake. A very nice place to hike outside. Lots of shopping and a very good selection of restauants nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lake

After spending several hours helping my son move, I was on the road much later than expected and decided I needed to stop for a few hours of sleep. I was 100% unprepared to stay overnight. The young lady at check-in gave me everything I needed to enjoy as normal a night as possible, i.e. toothpaste, comb, deodorant, etc. as well as a snack & drink. She was exceptionally kind and helpful to someone who was extremely tired. She exceeded all expectations and represented Hampton Inns extremely well!!

My husband and I just completed a stay at this Hampton Inn for the New Year's weekend. The stay was great from beginning to end. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Upon check-in on New Year's eve, my husband and I were discussing our dining options in the area. The staff member gave us a list of area restaurants with directions and even offered to call to find out wait times for a table.

Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel does serve breakfast, but we opted to sleep in late both mornings while there and didn't get a chance to observe the offerings. The floor we stayed on (4th floor) was very quiet. The only noise we heard the whole weekend was when housekeeping knocked on a couple of doors later in the mornings.

The hotel is situated in a good location right off of interstate 26. There are multiple restaurant and retail destinations in close proximity. There is something for everyone.

We really enjoyed our one night at the Hampton Inn--Harbison Road. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on the other side of the interstate on our way through the first time and only stayed the one night at the Hampton Inn as a mid-point to the airport in Charlotte. If we'd known how nice the Hampton Inn was we would have switched our stay. It was a nice clean room with quiet floors. The staff was unbelievably attentive (but not in a pushy way) and the lobby/breakfast area was well decorated and comfortable.

They couldn't find my reservations at first, but I think she was a new clerk. She retreived the manager and everything was fixed. I did not receive my receipt under my door as normal, so I went to the front desk to check out and she asked if I had gotten my receipt under my door, & I replied no. She said no problem and printed me one. Hotel employees were friendly, breakfast was good, room very clean. A great experience as expected.
