“Great, clean place to stay - nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Stayed here one night for business trip. Very clean and comfortable room, adequate breakfast, location very nice - near restaurants and shops for a good place to unwind after a day of meetings. Only complaint - could have used a little more sound insulation. (There was apparently a high school golf event nearby with groups staying here.)

Room Tip: Top floor would probably have been quieter.

Good Day "TravelerIL8". Thank you for taking the time to report on your experience. You're right - whether a light sleeper or not - more sound proofing is in order. Thanks again and safe travels to you and yours.

WE were pleased to share the facility with many of our classmates from our time at Illinois Wesleyan University. Staff of hotel have IWU connection and give us special attention. Made use of handicap accessible room with convenient roll in shower for my spouse who depends upon an electric scooter for mobility.

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.

Room Tip: I stayed in an odd numbered room which was on the back away from the main parking area. It was quiet...

For a clean, comfortable and reasonably priced motel, which also provides a generally good free breakfast, the Hampton Inn & Suites is the place to stay. I've been a guest at this location many times, and it is my first choice when I have business in Bloomington, IL.

Expected a lot of people and delays, but hotel staff managed everything very efficiently. Coffee bar in lobby was well stocked all day long with many drink options and fresh fruit. Breakfast food was hot & fresh with good selection. It was also well stocked throughout the morning. Rooms are clean and beds vey comfortable. Good proximity to stores and restaurants. Only negative was noise in room due to nearby elevator.

I have traveled worldwide since 2002 and this is one of the best facilities I've had the privilege in which to lodge. The customer service is excellent, the rooms are in very good to excellent condition. The work out room has up to date equipment that makes working out enjoyable (private tv screen on each device). The breakfast features the usual as well as homemade oatmeal instead of the instant packets, a variety of fresh fruits and yogurt flavors, types and sizes. I highly recommend this for business travelers and families alike. This site is located within walking distance of several restaurants and shops, (including mass merchants) without having to cross a major thoroughfare.
