Stayed at this Hampton Inn, near I-95 in St. Augustine the nights of April 18 and 19, 2011. It is about a 10 minute drive to the Historical District. There is a closer Hampton Inn to the Historic District, but they wanted more than twice the price for a king size bed than was offered at this Hampton Inn. The room was the usual fine quality I have come to associate with Hampton - very clean, comfortable bed, everything well maintained, tastefull decor, staff very nice and friendly, no surprises. Actually there was a surpise. They serve fresh baked cookies in the lobby everynight at 6 PM. Even if you do not return to the hotel until 9 PM there are still plenty of cookies for the taking.
My only problem was some noise issues. They have a refrigerator sitting in a wooden cabinet, and I guess the cabinent becomes an amplifying baffle for the refrigerator. When the compressor came on, the hum was so loud and annoying that I turned the refrigerator off. Next, the AC unit was way too loud, as it seems to be at most motels. If you need to turn the TV louder everytime the AC comes on, and then turn it down when the AC shuts off, the AC unit is too loud. Lastly they the lights in the bathroom and the foyer by the door must have old fluorescent ballasts, because they made loud annoying hums when turned on.
All things considered, i would not hesitate to stay at this Hampton Inn again, but I wish they would address the sources of the noises in the room. I would have given this motel five stars if not for the hums and noises in the room.
