“Very pleasant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

I stayed here 6 times on business in 2011 and 2012. I always found the rooms to be very clean, comfortable, and adequate. As a woman traveling alone, I also felt safe. The front desk staff was outstanding, always prompt, courteous & helpful. The bed was always comfortable and the bathroom is plenty big enough for one or two people. It is also close to several restaurants. Only 2 very minor comments- It is so close to the Interstate that if you are a light sleeper and have good hearing, you can hear highway traffic. This never kept me awake however. Also, the coffee at the delicious breakfast buffet was not strong enough for my taste! These are the only 2 minor complaints I can think of. If you are fortunate enough to have a little time on your hands while in the Ft. Payne area, visit beautiful Desoto State Park or Little River Canyon. This is a truly beautiful part of the state!

Stayed here for business and I travel often. You get off slowest elevator ever and smell of smoke hits you (no air conditioning in hallways either). Extremely outdated room with stains on carpet, furniture and walls. Also, door doesn't shut all the way you can see big gap. They updated lobby and first floor but seemed to have forgotten the rest of hotel. Front desk not the friendliest either. I'm also diamond hiltonhonors and usually receive water, snacks or cookies at other Hamptons but nothing here. Lastly, it's way over priced.

There is nothing special about this property except it's conveininetly located off of I-59.
The check-in staff was so-so, not lookoing as they really cared if you stayed or not.
I agree with the reveiw below that the property is aging and at $129/nite one would think they could clean the carpets.
Should you find yourself in neloed of accomendations in Fort Payne, AL you might want to try another hotel and this from a looyal HH Diamnd member.

Indoor pool, microwave, frig, fitness center, large,clean rooms, the list goes on..Then as we are leaving at 4:00 AM the person on duty asks if we would like a bagel to go since we would be missing the 6:00 AM breakfast..Now that is service!! How thoughtful! I'll be through there again..I'll be sure to put this place first on my list

Room Tip: Ask about specials. We looked on Expedia then asked when we went in. They gave us an even better dea...

Ive stayed here once a year for the last five years and I've always had a positive experience but the rooms are in need of some deep cleaning and updating. I was on the forth floor and upon exiting the elevator I was hit by a strong odor of smoke. The room was the same as most other hamptons. The bathroom was very clean but the bed had long hairs and a very light yellow stain on the sheets. The carpet turned my sock dark brown. The chair was terribly stained as pictured. On the bright side the bed an pillows were comfortable and the rate was the lowest I ever remember paying at this hotel. I think next time I'll try out the holiday inn to compare...

You'll get what you expect from this Hampton Inn. It is pretty standard issue- nice rooms, clean, etc. Location wise, it is a double edged sword. Close to the interstate, easy on and off. Being right off the interstate it is stuck between a Lowe's and a K-Mart, not exactly picturesque. Enough restaurants close by (many in walking distance) to earn it an extra point in my book. In case someone from management is reading this... upgrade your TV service. Relatively few channels (20 maybe, with half of those news and sports).

Room Tip: You might want to ask for a room that doesn't face the interstate if you are sensitive to noise.
