I thought the Hampton was very nice. They gave a discounted rate because my child had to go to Children's Hospital that morning. It was only about ten minutes from there. The staff was very nice and had no problems checking in.

The hotel was very close to the venue in which we were visiting. The hotel itself was nice and clean; however, there is a liquor store on the same property. I had some concerns about that is some people just hanging around.

Well run hotel, very clean throughout. The front desk was very helpful. Asked the receptionist for a place to eat and she suggested the Cock and Bull Pub which was nearby. They had entertainment and the food was good. The breakfast in the morning was busy but well stocked and plenty of places to sit. Would stop here again.

From check in to the room, breakfast and the assistance of the hotel staff....everything was excellent! A short cab ride to the casino, bars and restaurants. Visited Horseshoe with some friends. Then hit up many different places after that.

Mattress/pillow were very comfortable. Didn't care for the room scent used to make it smell "fresh". Breakfast is a nice touch - some items lack flavor - stick to the basics. i.e. coffee, bagel... A hot tub would have been nice after a long day of travel/sight seeing. Overall, I would stay here again.

This hotel is not worth the money. The beds here are terrible and seem worn out. The linens on the bed were lumpy like they had been washed and the stuffing was balled up inside. When we asked about new linens the staff told us they were all like that. My wife was not happy to say the least! I've... More
