Have stayed at Hamptons last couple of business trips. They provide ok rooms and fairly minimal services such as bars or restaurants. this one had neither although there are a couple in easy walking distance. Not very helpful though when you arrive late. It is only a few miles from the local airport (which be warned is too small to have regular cab service so you will wait after phoning in for one) about a $12 cab ride.
One nice thing is the hotel is right next to the Constitution trail (across street) which is a really nice public trail if you like to walk or go for run. I walked it into the main downtown area and it is about 2 miles, a pleasant walk in early afternoon especially when the weather is in the 70s.
Staff are friendly and appear helpful although I had no need of additional services except asking them to arrange a cab for the morning after I arrived to my client. It seems most places are close by and the cabs were very reliable if a bit old.
