4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2007

We sometimes stay in Blythe when we go on our jet ski trips to the Colorado River. This was our first stay at the Hampton Inn. The decor was great, rooms cleans and comfy, microwave and little refrigerator, TV - the quality of the sound was a little bit of a bummer, lots of pillow (yay!), soap, shampoo, conditioner and plenty of fluffy towels.

A continental breakfast (i.e. cereal, muffins, bagels, eggs, sausage, drinks, etc.) were available. A Sizzler is located just up the street that isn't too shabby.

Our stay was pleasant and comfortable. Service was great, staff friendly - regardless of the crazy heat at 118 degrees!!!

Overall a great stay and we'll plan on staying again.

My husband and I spent a night here while visiting family. The hotel room was pretty standard - double beds and a decent amount of space. The toilet and shower room had a door while the vanity and sink were just beside it. The room was very clean. The breakfast area also had a good selection, although, we didn't eat there as we wanted to head to get a Mexican breakfast (lunch). The front desk staff were very friendly and gave a great recommendation for a Mexican restaurant. OH! AND, they had FREE Internet in the lobby. Although a bit pricier as far as hotels in that area go, it was worth it - I even managed to swim in the pool before we left. I wouldn't recommend it for laps, but, it was clean as was the area around it. I haven't stayed anywhere else in the area (and there were definitely tons of motels) but, I don't think I would stay anywhere else. The Hampton Inn was a bit of luxury in a not-so-luxurious town.

A super clean room with a super comfortable bed and feather pillows. Internet access in our room. Plenty to eat at breakfast which consisted of fresh fruit, a choice of cereal, yoghurt, juice, muffins and and hot bakery, tea and coffee.

The only negative was that we had to run the airconditioner and it was noisy.

Just spent one night at the Hampton Inn this past week. It was an older facility but very well maintained and clean! Their breakfast was outstanding with a delicious fresh fruit mixture and the usual continental fare. We had the suite on the top floor - only drawback was that it faced the street in the front of the hotel. There was quite a bit of traffic noise at first but diminished later in the evening. The suite was beautifully furnished and very comfortable.

Went to the Hampton Inn in Blythe for the first time last week after having suffered through the other choices in Blythe year after year. This place is GREAT! Free wireless internet in every room. Parking for boat and jetski trailers right outside the rooms. All rooms have exterior corridors, which I don't like, but there is NO CHOICE in all of Blythe. This property is by far the nicest in Blythe. Rooms look newly remodeled or possibly, this is a new construction. Mini refrigerators and microwave ovens in each room. Showers are spacious with nice toiletries. Nice furnishings and very comfortable beds. They even have a lap desk in the rooms for those that bring their laptops! Breakfast was from 6 to 11 and included hot items such as eggs and pancakes. They even provide a premade to-go breakfast (water, fruit, muffin and I think a yogurt, don't remember) for those that can't stay for breakfast.

Don't even bother with the Holiday Inn Express, Ramada or Best Western. While this isn't upscale, for Blythe, it is luxury.

We go every summer and have tried a couple of other hotels and were not happy. The Hampton Inn has a great pool and that is a requirement for our family. Their continental breakfast is always great and the staff are always courteous and helpful. There are a lot of vacationers there for the river, but we go every year to Midland, as I was born there.
There's not much left to see, but the memories make all of the difference!
