“Enjoyed the Suite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

Can "ditto" most comments for this hotel: comfortable, clean, and lots of coffee available in lobby and in-room. We opted for the "suite" which includes a large jacuzzi tub. Suite includes larger living room area with small kitchenette setting: microwave, table for two, and fridge. You can "take out" the included breakfast buffet and enjoy in room. For a special treat, you can buy plain ol' Epsom salts at the local CVS or Walgreens for a great hot tub soak.

Room Tip: We stayed on third floor facing the road. Our neighbors were quiet..and luckily there was minimal r...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Stayed once again at this location, was very happy as usual. Front Desk Staff greeted me by name, before I even told them who I was, amde me feel right at home. Dorothy, the Breakfast Hostess ALWAYS does a GREAT JOB, she starts early so my co-workers and I have chance to grab some breakfast before going to work, which is awesome sinc we leave hotel by 5:15am. This visit, I left my favorite pillow, realized had left, called, they found and mailed to my home so was there by the time I got there several days later. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK LADIES!!!!!! See you in a couple months

Room Tip: All GREAT Rooms. Have stayed all over hotel, never had a problem.

The staff at the Hampton Inn were very friendly and knowledgable regarding places to eat. The room was clean and neat. Not that easy to find from I81 but worth the effort to find.

Very nice staff, always leave a note saying welcome back. Decent food with 10 minutes, and 2 good choices right across the street. Clean and comfortable, stay here every time I come to Roanoke/Salem.

Only Hampton I have visited with a spiral staircase. Really sweet lady at breakfast bar and friendly front desk folks. If you have someone in Lewis Gale hospital this is a great place to stay. You can walk between buildings easily and can get food to prepare across the street at leotard.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

I was torn between giving this hotel an average or a very good overall rating because it really was a nice, clean, comfortable stay. The reason I can really only give it an average though, is that the room itself was dated. While the bathroom was very clean and SUPER spacious (it even had a jetted tub separate from the large walk-in shower), the countertops were plain laminate, instead of the nice granite tops and more upscale furnishings at most Hampton Inn locations. If they just did a quick face-lift of a few of the furnishings/paint/carpet, it would make a WORLD of difference because, otherwise, the place is really nice.

I appreciated that the room had a sitting area with a dining room table, microwave, and fridge. I was able to sit comfortably at the table and eat the Chinese food I had delivered from across the street (since it was raining and I didn't want to go out in the wet/cold) and worked on my computer. Free wi-fi is expected at Hampton Inn's and I was pleased to have no issue with the connection.

I had a perfectly fine stay, felt safe, and had a great night's sleep followed by a wonderful free breakfast of waffles, warm oatmeal and muffins, so no complaints here! I would just be overrating this hotel if I made it sound like it was luxurious in any way. It was just average but has potential to be really outstanding. But, in that area, it probably doesn't make sense to put so much of an investment into nicer accommodations because there is nothing else around that even comes close to the quality of this average Hampton Inn. I can appreciate that they probably put their funds more directly into paying their staff than spending a lot on more expensive granite countertops in the bathrooms and such. That said, it would take things to a whole new level if they did a few renovations.

All in all, you will have a perfectly good stay at this hotel, a great night's sleep, and have a hot shower in the morning. Add on the free breakfast, free wi-fi, and free parking, and you can't beat it and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a nice hotel in Salem. However, if you are able to stay about 20 minutes away, the Hotel Roanoke Conference Center is absolutely out of this world!!! I wrote a review and posted pics of it as well.

Attached are pictures from my room-- enjoy! I hope you found this review helpful!
