Stayed here on an overnight trip to Winchester while playing tourist closer to home. This appeared to be the newer of the two Hampton Inns in town (and it had the cheapest room available) so I went with it.
The hotel is in a pretty good location, right off I-81 and less than 5 minutes from downtown. There are several dining options nearby (pizza, Five Guys, mexican) as well as gas stations and a CVS.
I booked a double room with "limited view." I prefer a king/queen, but for one night i was quite happy to take that room and save $30. The room had ample space, but the second bed means no desk and the table is in a tight spot against the wall. The room had a microwave, small refrigerator and a LCD TV with a decent selection of channels. The bathroom was quite spacious. My Gold HHonors bonus - bottle of water and cookies - were on the dresser.
The "limited view" comes from the fact that the room is above the lobby and the window was partially blocked by the canopy over the front door. It cut down a little bit on natural light, but there's not much a view from this side of town anyway. There were some scuffs and a golfball-sided hole in the far wall, which looked like were caused when someone slammed the chairs into the wall. The front desk didn't seem to know about it when I mentioned it at check out, which leads me to believe - given that the rest of the hotel appeared to be well-maintained - that this room isn't booked often.
Breakfast was pretty good. There were eggs with ham and peppers (imagine a western omelet), sausage patties, a waffle maker, bagels/muffins/toast, yogurt, several cereals, instant oatmeal and a fruit salad (mostly honeydew and cantaloupe). I'm on a diet but there were enough options to keep me happy.
All in all, it was a comfortable stay and what Ii have come to expect from Hampton.
