Didn't have too much choice of a hotel , consequently price was wayyyy to high for what we had , double the price it should of been. Plus hard to find! There are not enough hotels in the area if one visits the creation museum and the Ark encounter. This hotel was under some construction outside , so it was... More

They are very friendly staff. I was there for a medical procedure and the staff was understanding and helpful through it all. The room was very well arranged. Clean smelling and tidy hotel. We were so pleased we wound up staying a couple days more.

Hotel was under renovation, which was not disclosed prior to arrival. The parking lot was filled with heavy machinery and we were forced to use the back entrance, which wasn't particularly safe. Service was ok, staff was friendly but room was gross. Old, stained carpet, wrinkled sheets and towels, and moldy shower. Would not stay again.

Thank you for your feedback, I apologize you did not have a good experience that we strive to provide our guests. We are undergoing a full renovation, starting with the exterior and then the entire inside to include carpet, mattresses and all public areas.

The staff was good, like all the Hampton Inn's I have stayed at, however the room was worn and the loveseat dirty. The bathroom was clean, but the HVAC system for the room was noisy which made it impossible to sleep. The hotel is under renovation right now so it will probably be better after the renovations are complete, but... More

My stay was less than I expected from a typical Hampton Inn. This hotel apparently is aging and they are in the process of renovating. The bathroom has some cracks in the tile, the mattress is not as comfortable as I am used too. The breakfast area is decent with hot food. The fitness room and pool were kept up... More

I often stay at Hampton Inns. This one was BY FAR the worst experience. Parking is dark and there isn't much of it. Rooms are seriously outdated. There is a sign at the front door saying they are remodeling, so don't expect to sleep past 8am. No warning of this prior to reservation online. The Air Conditioner did not drop... More

I have stayed at several Hampton Inns in the past and this one was BY FAR the worst experience AND the most expensive at over $140/night for a 2 double bed room.
