I again stayed at the Hampton Inn in Hampton Cove (Huntsville, Al.) this past weekend. I was very appreciative of the fact that they let me have an early checkin time. Instead of driving to Huntsville all in one day (8 1/2 hour drive), I had left the evening before after work and drove 4 hours which was going to put me in to the hotel around 11 am or noon. I called ahead of time and asked if it would be possible for an early checkin. They very graciously accommodated me. When I arrived at the hotel, they even gave me a choice of a first or second floor room.
The bed was fantastic. The bathroom had a nice walk in shower, which I like. I know some folks like the tub/shower combo, but I prefer the walk in shower. The carpet had a few areas that needed to be spot cleaned, but beside that, it was a pretty clean room. (I thought at first the carpet had burn holes in it even though it was a nonsmoking room, but upon closer inspection, it was just a few spots like black tar or something.)
The breakfast was the norm. I do like the fact that they offer hot oatmeal already made up and not the instant that you have to make in your bowl with hot water. They have the normal waffle maker and then offer cold cereals, yogurt, bagels, toast, muffins, sweet rolls and fresh fruit. Every day they also offered two hot items. One morning it was bacon and french toast and the next morning it was eggs and hashbrowns. Very clean eating area and the attendant was very attentive.
About the only complaint I have about my whole visit was the placement of the toilet tissue in the bathroom. (Room 124). It was placed way behind the toilet. You almost had to get up and turn around to get it. Maybe other folks are more limber than I, but with my bad back, to have to turn clear around to reach it, it was very inconvenient. I ended up just taking the tissue off the holder and putting in on the floor (on a towel, not on the floor itself).
I am sure we will be staying here many more times in the coming years as it is only about 1/2 from our son's house so it is very convenient for us to stay here and I would not hesitate to stay here again.
