This is a very old Hampton Inn located right off 90 (Governors) and very close to 65 and 10 (this hotel is in the Tillman Corner area, so be careful, because there is another hotel listed as Tillman Corner- the property in my review is on Inn Rd.). There are a bunch of restaurants in the area, and a few within walking distance. I wouldn’t say this is the best part of town to stay in, but I didn’t feel unsafe. There is a newer Hampton on I-65 where I stayed last time, however they were sold out on this trip, probably will try and stay there next time.
Accommodated my requests and the check-in staff were very helpful and friendly. There was an evening reception going on when I first got there with snacks and drinks in the breakfast area, nice touch.
First thing you notice is that the door to the room is really old, so gives you an indication of what is inside. The carpet is what I call “socks carpet.” It isn’t carpet I feel real comfortable walking on bear feet. It wasn’t overly dirty or stained; I just didn’t feel comfortable walking on it without socks or shoes.
The room it self is just old, from the pictures on the wall, to the wallpaper hanging, to the older TV with junky old remote (at least it had closed caption). The bed was fine, a good combination of poly and feather pillows, linens were clean, but the headboard kind of creaked a bit too much. There is a desk and chair, with a lamp with electrical outlets, which I like (can recharge easily) and they offer high speed in the room. The wall AC unit looked newer, but the temperature control wasn’t great. I like it moderately cold when I sleep, but because the duvets at Hampton are heavier than I like, was just using a sheet. The low AC, not set all the way to cool, was just too cold. Eventually had to use the duvet, as I was too lazy to get up, so needless to say, didn’t sleep great. AC unit was a bit noisy, but don’t mind that, like background noise.
Overall noise in the room wasn’t too bad, although you do hear doors slamming in other rooms pretty clear. I do have a bit peeve though. The iron was disgusting. Someone had burned it and there was crud on it. It actually smoked when I turned it on. I tried to use Purell to clean it off (after I was told there were no other irons available) and it didn’t do much. It may have stained my clothes (I’ll know after I wash them). Was not real happy about that. I can deal with an older room, as long as it is clean, but there have to be some basics there. Having a junky dirty iron isn’t acceptable, especially since I couldn’t get a replacement.
There is a small fitness center with a treadmill and elliptical, and the hotel has a small outdoor pool. The business center was nice, two newer computers, printers and supplies. Was nice to be able to print my boarding pass out.
In the evening there were cookies and popcorn in the lobby, which was a nice touch. Breakfast was the usual continental type fare and they had plenty of breakfast bags for people on the go (water, cereal bar, muffin, fruit, mints).
I believe I saw something in the lobby that they are renovating this hotel. Until they do, I can’t recommend it. The hotel wasn’t dirty (except for the iron), but I just didn’t feel it was worth the $110 my company shelled out for my room. If you can get a room for under $75, maybe, but I wouldn’t pay more than that. Really need some rehab, and housekeeping has got to have a better surplus.
