“Awesome hotel!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

We stayed two nights for a baseball tournament and had a great experience. The rooms are large, nicely decorated and very clean. Even though there were several teams staying at the hotel it was very quiet at night. Everyone from the front desk to the cleaning staff was very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was ready by 6 am even on the weekend, which was great since we had to be at our fields by 7 both days. The pool and slide were a big hit with the boys and the parents!

The room was very nice; clean, well appointed, comfortable, quiet. We stayed here the first night of our visit to the area and enjoyed it so much we went back for two more nights.
We'll defintiely stay here every time we come back to the Shelton/Milford area.

Room Tip: Recommend a room on the rear at the north end away from the pool.

From check-in to check-out everything in this hotel was fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean, spacious, and the beds were comfortable. The pool area was very warm and humid but the kids didn't care since they were too busy having fun on the waterslide. The breakfast was great and had a great variety. If we are in the area again, we will definitely stay here again.

Wow! Huge room... really HUGE! Everything and everybody was so nice! We have a ball checking in - even though it was midnight, the staff were friendly and lively. The room was lovely and very well appointed. The bed was SO comfortable... my son especially appreciated the "bed desk" - a lovely touch we have NEVER seen in a hotel room before. It's a very lightweight "desk" that you can put on your lap and put your laptop, I Pad or whatever on top and sit in bed and work. Breakfast was lovely and when I could not carry everything to my room, the attendant actually went with me to carry what I could not. AMAZING. Love this place. I have the good fortune of going back next week!!!

We booked this hotel as a convenience stop between our visit to New York City and our cruise port in Boston. We couldn't have had a better experience. The hotel is crisp, clean and bright, the staff very accomodating, breakfast was fantastic, the price was fantastic, the pool with the slide was unbelievable (couldn't get my kids away from it).... I could go on and on and on EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT!!

This hotel was excellent from start to finish! I stayed during the weekend of June 15-17 on a weekend getaway with my fiancé. The pool area was extremely clean and well maintained and had a fun waterslide. Breakfast was a bit crowded with other guests and a little messy but very fulfilling.

The guest room we had was extremely spacious and had a great layout. Shelton has tons to offer closeby including a zoo, aquarium PEZ factory and visitor center restaurants. It was only about a 15 minute drive to the ocean and beach with complimentary parking. I would definitely recommend the Hampton Inn Shelton!

This Hampton Inn was an outstanding value for us.

First, we were traveling with our dog, a 16-pound shih-tzu. Although he's a well-behaved pup, most hotels would have forbidden him. Here, he stayed free.

When we arrived, our reservation was in order and the night clerk was cheery and efficient.

Our room was ready, with no feathers as we requested. The king bed was super comfortable (with Hampton's legendary pillowtop mattress) and the room was sparkling clean. The bathroom was nearly new, with tight wallpaper and excellent towels and soap products.

The climate control reduced the blasting AC to a gentle breeze. Swiftly.

Breakfast was just fine, with good coffee, nice fruit salad, and a committee of beaming servers.

Checkout was simple. I only stopped at the desk to turn in our room keys and to compliment the clerk on a lovely stay. She smilingly told me that the employees loved their jobs, and I believed her.

The hotel is situated on a business boulevard that has trees, minimized signage, and a bunch of decent restaurants and shopping sites.

We'll be back.
