“Very accommodating!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Recently States here because our furnace died. I was very impressed. Not sure if they recently remodeled but rooms were very nice. The hotel is pet friendly and does not charge a fee. Thank you very much. Breakfast is included. My only suggestion is to clean pool everyday. It is well used. The kids love the slide. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Based on this visit I will try other Hamptons.

The Hampton Inn in Shelton, CT was a pleasant experience for my husband and me. It was not only quiet, clean, but fresh and up-to-date. The bed was quite comfortable (more and more important to us in our travels). The room lighting was good enough for reading.

The only negative was the complimentary breakfast. I had never seen scrambled eggs shaped like little cubes. Otherwise, there was the standard fare; all very bland. But it WAS complimentary! Next time, we'll probably stay there, if the price is right, but skip the complimentary part of the stay.

We always stay at Hampton Inn when we travel and this one is a keeper! It is also very easy accessible from I95 as well as from I91 short distance on the parkway either way and relaxing from the busy New England I95 corridor. The pool (open early 8:00 am) has a nice waterslide so the kids stay busy. The rooms are very nice and of good size, the beds confortable and the service is exceptional! The hotel is very well kept everything is clean, the room was spotless. The breakfast area is nice and comfy. The food was ok and similar to other Hampton Inn.
This is going to be our sleep over when traveling north!

I can't say enough about how friendly and accommodating the staff was. Staff went out of there way to make sure we had what we needed. Kids loved pool area and waterslide. Only negative was parents who didn't watch their children. Staff shut down waterslide at one point because kids weren't behaving. Breakfast was ok, similar to other like hotels. Room clean and comfortable.

We stayed here for a recent hockey tournament. The rooms seemed clean, maid service was very apparent and present every day, all day. It was frustrating getting 2 washcloths a day when clearly there were 4 people in the room. Daily we had to ask for more. The breakfast which is free offered a lot more than I expected, but the hot food was not good (eggs, home fries). Loved the juices for the kids, and the all day hot coffee. The large roach roaming by the elevators made me question the cleanliness, but that was the only bug I saw. The room seemed clean. The pool is unattended by life guards so special attention is needed by the parents (understandably so!). The large water slide is super fun, but after 3 days of watching numerous kids get very hurt (12 in. Gashes on legs), I advise caution. The front desk could care less kids were getting hurt. The towels in the pool are are never there, which is very annoying. No restaurant in the hotel so lunch and dinner you have to go out. There are some popular chains around like Outback, Chili's, Bertucci's, Longhorn Steakhouse. Not many attractions at all to see, but the hotel itself is set up on a large hill, which is pretty. It is a dog friendly hotel so if you aren't dog friendly be sure to request a room on another floor. The barking can be loud.

I stay at this Hampton Inn regularly for business. The hotel is always very clean and the rooms are clean. Customer service is always very good. I would like to see a better breakfast option and they Are missing out on a big opportunity with not having a bar.

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay. The staff were phenomenal, incredibly friendly, and my overall experience at the hotel was outstanding. Specifically, Patrice at the front desk was extremely polite, the check-in process was quick and efficient. She explained all of the amenities the hotel had to offer, and was even prepared with directions and recommendations for restaurants in the area. Additionally, Hector, who worked for the maintenance department, always greeted us upon return to the hotel. We felt like the staff really cared about our needs, and valued us as their customers. Will definitely stay at this hotel for all future trips to the area!
