Arrived on Sunday, Aug. 5th and only stayed one night because of business in Charlotte on Tuesday. It has a very nice Lobby, the rooms are nice and have a Microwave, frig., Iron, Hair dryer and every thing a traveler would need in my opinion. The hotel is located directly on the Beach. Just take the elevator down to the LL (lowest level) straight out the doors past the 4 or 5 pools and Lazy river, on to the walk over directly on to the beach. The beach area in front of the Hampton Inn has a Life Guard on duty. The beach is clean and water was great the day we visited. The Hotel has a great b'fast that had biscuits & gravy, Fruit, yogurt, pastries, coffee, juice, milk, ceral, and B'fast pizza. We really enjoyed the visit. I do Recomend asking for Ocean Front, so as to get a balcony overlooking the Atlantic, just my preffrence. The hotel also has a covered parking garage.
