We recently had the opportunity to stay at two different Hampton Inns in the Jacksonville area. Our stay at this hotel started off poorly as the adjoining rooms we had requested and been told over the phone by the number on the Hilton Honors website that we could have were not available. This was not the fault of the hotel but of the person who claimed she had called the hotel and the king/2 queen combo we wanted was possible. Through sheer luck and another party's desire to change rooms we actually did get adjoining rooms though both had 2 queens. That was not a problem at all. What was a problem were the doors between the two rooms. There was no easy way to actually keep them open. They were self closing and locking. We eventually resorted to propping them open with whatever we could find. We were warned that if the hall entrance door to one of the rooms was latched from the inside and we all went out the other door, we would be completely locked out of the room and no one could get in.
The rooms were fine and we liked having a microwave and fridge as well as a large TV and a nice variety of channels. We did not like that our thermostat did not illuminate so it was quite tricky to adjust the temperature in the room. Also, the roach roaming the bathroom in the middle of the night was a bit startling.
Breakfast was a disappointment. This is a large hotel but the breakfast room was small and equipped with lots of low tables with sofas and a large tall table with high stools. There were very few normal tables, which you would really want if you had children with you. Food choices were more limited than we have come to expect with Hampton Inns. The waffle maker was not working well and no spray was available. Guests who actually got a waffle to come out in one piece were chastised for using too much batter - which makes the waffles stick, we were told.
We were very professionally helped by Ron at check in but he was overworked, and we, as well as those who unfortunately followed us, had to wait quite a while. The price was right but there may be better options.
