“rude and too pricey”
Reviewed April 15, 2008

I decided not to stay after finding out they were double in price of any other motel in the area. I was treated by rude people that were not concerned at the least that I was broke down and stranded and just trying to find a room for the night. I definitly would not go there again.

Stayed 3 nights. Very nice, new facility. Great beds. Breakfast was "hot" and staff at the desk were friendly. But...housekeeping was poor. Room was never vacuumed during stay and we left a battery charger plugged in an outlet that was never "found" even though we realized it before anyone else checked into the room that day. Housekeeping probably trashed it because we didn't leave a tip.

Ok, it's a really nice new Hampton

Realize there are NO suites, no rooms with sofa beds, no jacuzzi options, no indoor swimming pool (outdoor if in season it's open). No fridge or microwave in the rooms.

The only room configuration is two doubles or one king.

The staff are great and there is a Homewood Suites style pantry - so it shows how new this Hampton really is.

Nice business center, but only one computer.

Close to a Walmart, Golden Rule BBQ, Cracker Barrel, McDonald's and The Fish Market Restaurant.

  • Liked — NEW, clean, great beds, nice, and the mini-store is nice in the lobby
  • Disliked — NO indoor POOL, No suites, no fridge in room

A new hotel, but wonderful appointments and amenities. In a growing area south of Nashville on the way to Florida. Trust me u will love it, not to busy yet because its new but a first class property. Nice Fish Market restaurant close by and convenient to I65 south. Good price value to AAA card holders. A must stop on the way south.
