We were looking for a Hotel after a long drive and saw this as we were passing, so glad we stopped.
The rooms were clen and a good size, had a microwave, fridge and coffee maker.
The location is good for the usual shops, bars, etc, there is a resturant about a 2 minute walk away
called the Distihl and it has a micro brewery there.
The free breakfast was really good, lots to choose from and a very nice relaxing area to eat in.

Room Tip: I asked for a room with a bath as I prefer that but unlss you request it you may only get a shower.

I stayed here overnight for business. The room was very clean. Beds were comfortable, no complaints. The breakfast is included and surprisingly was very good. There are lots of restaurants and shopping nearby as well. I will be coming back to this area for business and this will definitely be my go-to hotel.

Definitely worth spending the little extra to get a much better quality than some of the cheaper hotels. Definitely recommend the Hampton. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was huge, large shower and very clean. Overall, one of the best hotels I've stayed in.

Very comfortable bed. I travel with medications that need refrigerated and could not get a dorm fridge for my room though they did offer accomadtions in a staff refridgerator. Just not comfortable putting my meds elsewhere.

Hi 'Brian M' and thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to report on your recent experience with us - we appreciate the 5/5 rating. Though, I apologize that a team member dropped the ball and failed to complete your request of a refrigerator. Rest assured this has been development/coaching issue number 1 with the team recently. Should we ever fall short of your expectations please don't hesitate to contact me personally at any time of the day.
Safe travels to you and yours and enjoy your Spring....

Rooms very nice and clean. Staff very friendly. Breakfast was better than other Hamptons we've stayed at. Free wi-fi. Overall, a great deal. The lobby was under renovation when we stayed, but aside from that, we enjoyed our stay.

We've stayed here a few times and the rooms have always been clean and quiet. I like being right next to Target in case we need anything. There's also shopping and restaurants within walking distance. We stay here when visiting family. Can't forget the free breakfast! Perfect for our family.

Part of the disappointment was that the hotel lobby is being renovated.
Ladders, workers, plastic, boxes of tile stacked, wall paper rolls and raw floors plus construction debris. I have had foot surgery and not walking far at one time. Front entrance to hotel was locked. We had made the reservation at this property due to Hampton Inn reputation, reviews, and internet promotion. Front desk seemed hesitant to accept the promotion even though it was confirmed online. It was eventually accepted but I didnt 'get why' it was promoted but not wanting to be honored. Beds were lumpy. Hate the three small pillow thing that seems to be popular in hotels right now. Breakfast was a big disappointment. Two kinds of scrambled egg-like options, thin frozen sausage patties, and seasoned frozen hash browns. Those were made worse by the lid of the casserole dripping water on the potatoes. Orange juice was what I call orange flavored water, not even as thick as orange ade. I settled on fruit and yogurt. Next year when we meet family for Easter, we will stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: if you like space, maybe try a studio suite? Our room felt crowded.
