Stayed there for a week. The rooms are small and packed with furniture. The updated rooms are quite good, but the new furniture smells quite a bit. You clearly hear the noises from your neighbours and the sound from the corridor.
The Service is different; some people got a bottle of water and candy, some not.
The wireless network is poor. We tried to use it in the conference room and it doesn't work well. The personell has no clue how to fix it. Anyway it is very slow and you have to deal with a changing wap key.
The self service breakfast is ok but not more.

Room Tip: There are updated rooms, ask for that

Only stayed 1 night for an early appt. in the area the next day. Lobby clean & front desk very hospitable. (Non-smoking rm) smelled like smoke. On our way out to eat a late dinner, let front desk know. They were apologetic and willing for us to switch rooms. Because of the late night (and air freshener we sprayed) did not want to make the effort to switch rooms but appreciated the offer. Beds & pillows VERY comfy. Breakfast in a.m. good & standard for a Hampton Inn chain. View from room was uneventful but we were not there for leisure so acceptable.

Stayed here on business with FHC Great Lakes. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly and had a nice lobby to work in if you don't want to be sequestered in your room. Large pool area and decent places to eat within walking distance.

The check in was speedy and professional. The room was clean, comfortable and shower worked well (i.e., water flow and temperature). This appears to be set up like the Drury Inn, if one has stayed with them. We didn't know it was an outdoor pool, but it was very warm and it was enjoyed by all who entered. The area around the pool was great too - wide so that you are not on top of other's conversation.
The hallways were quiet and there was a bus of Army reserves checking in. So that maybe part of it.

Room Tip: Check - in early.

Well, I have to admit, having stayed at numerous Hampton Inn properties over the last few years for travel, at first glance from the outside it isn't much to talk about. You can slightly ascertain the old "Days Inn" shadow under the new "Hampton Inn" sign, and the outside style is reminiscent of a 1970's hotel/motel architecture. Inside it appears to be completely remodeled with updated decor. The rooms are pretty small and not much the standard of most newer Hampton Inns. We stayed overnight here since it was close to the Renaissance Faire 20 miles away and wanted to mitigate a long drive through I-294 North in the AM.
The room we stayed in was a two DOUBLE bed, yes double...not large enough but we survived. Given the choices in the area are pretty slim, it is the best you can get in this area. It is very close to food and amenities, and we love the Oberweis Dairy/Ice Cream Shop right next door. That was really a find!
The large (i.e., very large) pool is outdoors and a rarity in these days of small indoor stifling pools at most Hampton Inns I've stayed at. My two young boys loved it and the pool deck was large and gave room to read the paper and catch up on adult conversation while the kids swim.
The staff was pleasant and the halls and lobby were clean and large enough to sit away from groups. Parking is plenty so no worries there either. I'd stay here again, but maybe get two rooms...a kind for the adults and two doubles for the kids. Just my thoughts...

Room Tip: Top floors, double bed rooms are small.

After a horrific experience down the road at another hotel we attempted to stay at we found ourselves looking to a place to stay last minute while visiting Great America for my daughters birthday - we called first and immediately the staff was friendly, polite and made us happy about our decision to walk away from the other hotel/room we had paid for. Upon arrival the lobby was clean, bright, cheerful and felt "good". The staff was friendly, informative and made the check in process a breeze! We went into our room and felt like we had found a piece of heaven, the beds were fluffy and inviting looking, the decoration were modern and clean and made you just happy to be there. The Pool was wonderful, clean, spacious and great! The options for workout room and access to Golds gym were a nice surprise. They had a coffee bar open for you any time, they served cookies at night and the contintenal breakfast in the morning was hot, real food that actually tasted really good with plenty of seating to accomdate the guests! We were a little sad we only had one night to stay there - as it was that great of an experience!
