“Rates are rising too fast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2007

Hampton Inn has always been my favorite place to stay. I have stayed at this particular location over 50 times in the past 5 years for work at a local business.

This year they have been raising the price steadily and have adjusted down a few times but only after I requested . Now they are up to $105 per night. I walked next door to the Holiday Inn Express and was quoted $65. It is rather hard to justify the extra particularly since many of us from the same company are turning in expense reports.

I hope they don't drive too many people away particularly with the new Fairfeild opening up across the street.

We have stayed at a few Hampton Inns in the last few years and I was alittle disappointed. The room was very clean, the staff was very friendly, and they told us NOT to go over the speed limit in town or we would get a ticket. The breakfast buffet was awesome! alot of different foods on the bar. I will say that the beds were not the new ones they have and the air conditioning was broke and the "sorry" I got didn't really cut it. Drive the extra half hour and stay at the Hampton Inn in Emporia!!! That hotel is the best! i would have stayed there this year too but it was completely booked. Now i know why!

We have stayed at the Hampton Inn on numerous times and stayed there on 2 occasions this month. Our previous visits to Hampton Inn have been very good ones. However, today we received our credit card bill with the charge for our first stay and found an additional charge of $50 charged on the bill 3 days later. It seems the laptop computer pillow was not in the room when the maid checked the following morning. All I l know is that it was in the room when we checked in and when we checked out. We were never notified of the additional charge and when we returned the following week. they welcomed us back and gave us the same room. The additional charge was placed on Wednesday and we returned Friday. Why were we not notified when we returned on Friday? They obviously remembered us.

I contacted the hotel today and they said it was missing and we have to pay for it. It s not the money,but rather the fact that they we have been convicted of theft without a trial. I left a message for the manager who has been out of the country for 5 weeks and due to return next week. According to the clerk, there is no acting manager. Hard to believe.
I am a former loyal satisified, honest customer who is very dissapointed in the South Hill Hampton Inn.

My suggestion to future guests, if you have to stay there, be sure to have a room inspection prior to your departure. Sounds silly but in this hotel, it seems necessary.
