I stayed at this hotel twice during a recent motorcycle trip. Just on the outskirts of town, there isn't much around the hotel except a gas station, a couple of chain restaurants and a half defunct shopping mall.That's not an issue, if you don't mind driving to dinner, etc. Downtown, Staunton is not far and boasts some decent restaurants and tourist attractions. Since I didn't want to get back on the bike again after riding all day, my dinner experiences were limited to Applebees and Red Lobster. Not exactly charming dinning experiences, but adequate for my needs.
However, the hotel itself is a gem. The reception staff is very pleasant and helpful. This property is in very good condition, and everything seems updated. The room was very clean and spacious and the bedding quite comfortable. If you're a light sleeper, bring earplugs, because the walls are thin and other guests tend to think they're the only ones in the building (not the hotel's fault - just an observation on the general lack of consideration by many travelers). When booking the room online, I requested a room away from the elevator and ice machine .Although the receptionist acknowledged my request when I checked in, it turned out that my room was in fact close to the elevator and the ice machine. I didn't want to make a fuss, so I just slept with earplugs.
The hotel includes a breakfast which is decent, if somewhat predictable in selection. Nevertheless, it's good enough to get you started in the morning without having to drive somewhere for breakfast. My only pet peeve is - why don't more hotels provide large capacity toasters? It's ridiculous to try to serve breakfast to dozens of people within a short time period when everyone has to wait for a home size toaster to go through its paces, while everyone else is waiting for their turn.
The price for this Hampton was a bit on the high side, even with a AAA discount, so I would have to consider staying somewhere else, if I were to stay more than a night or two.
