“Not a lot of choices in this town”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

The hotel itself looked nice, clean and updated.
The little things is why I can't give this hotel a higher rating.
Our room was directly over the pool; and because of this, our room reeked of chlorine.
It took more than 10 minutes of running the water to get hot water in the shower; I almost gave up on taking a shower.
The next morning for breakfast; I thought the hotel could redeem itself; I was wrong. All of the hot food warmers were empty when we arrived. I figured I would have a yogurt while we waited for more food to come out. It took 45 minutes before more food came out and the little omlettes were cold on the inside. There was only one woman working the food area in a hotel that looked to be pretty booked up.
This is the only hotel in the town so we did not have a choice. I do not usually stay at Hamptons and I probably will not again.
The price I pay for the room was very high; something you would pay for an upscale hotel.

Everything was fine overall -- clean, modern enough, good basic amenities, fresh food and good coffee. Quick and pleasant service from the front desk personnel. Something in the room caused a mild allergic reaction -- itchy, burning eyes -- but I don't know what it was; my usual triggers are smoke and mold (it was labeled as a nonsmoking room). A friend who stayed on another floor the same (cold, snowy) weekend thought it might have been a lack of humidity -- she actually turned her heat off overnight to avoid the dryness. Otherwise comfy, with good mattress, pillows and bed covers.

This was our third stay at this Hampton Inn, and our second time in the one-bedroom suite. There are only a couple of these rooms at this hotel but it is definitely worth the costs. Nice to be able to get up earlier or stay up later and not disturb your spouse! TV in bedroom and living area, as well as Microwave and mini fridge, along with sleeper sofa, chair and desk/w chair. Great breakfast area and very helpful staff! No reason to stay anywhere else!

Easy access off of Rout 31, plenty of restaurants close. Quaint downtown area, train access to the Chicago Downtown. Shopping and all the normal things we have in our town just north of the square on 31.

This motel is at the top of my list in everything. It is as advertised and is very clean, pleasant and everyone is so helpful. It was quiet and very clean. Has everything you can think of including a microwave and frig. Loved everything about it.

We stayed here for a wedding. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and a decent size. The bathroom sink was pretty high for me to reach when brushing my teeth (I'm 5'5"), so that would be a nuisance for kids. My only complaint is that the shuttle provided to get us to the wedding reception was late so we missed the cocktail hour and arrived just as the wedding party was being announced.
