“Hampton gets it done”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Spent night there while in Bloomington. Attention to cleanliness and friendly staff. Good free breakfast makes this a good spot when in town. This is our second visit and it is very close to IU football stadium. Also very close to downtown and the campus of IU.

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple

This hotel was everything expected and then some. The accomodations and service were unbeatable. The bed was heavenly -- the linens were clean and the mattress and pillows were comfortable. The desk clerk was friendly and helpful.

While my wife and I are not big travelers, when we do we have always tried to stay at Hampton. In the past their service, rooms, food have been outstanding - as has been their prices. However, last weekend we stayed in Hampton Inn / Bloomington and we're very disappointed in the room and the food.
Our mattress was very old and sagged to the extent that we couldn’t sleep. Breakfast was equally as bad; the only hot food was potatoes and sausage. Both were old and tough. We asked the server about the food and were told that’s all there is. “We only make one batch of food and when it’s gone, it’s gone.”
Our experience has certainly clouded our feelings on Hampton in general. If one falls below standard can others be far behind?

I stayed overnight at the Hampton Inn Bloomington, while attending a 2-day orientation at Indiana University. The location of the hotel was just about 5 minutes away from campus, which made it very convenient. My room and bathroom were very, very clean, and the bed and pillows were HEAVENLY! I had a VERY good night’s sleep! My room also had a nice 32” LG Flat screen TV, mounted on a swivel stand, making it really easy to see from all angles of the room. The FREE wireless Internet worked great, and was very easy to connect to. The complementary breakfast food selection of: scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, make-your-own waffles, juice, cereal bagels, fruit, etc., were very nice to have available; however, my only complaint is that the eggs were quite crumbly, and even though the eggs and sausage were in warmers, they were a little cold. Wish I could have stayed longer, but if my plans require me to stay overnight in Bloomington in the future, I would definitely enjoy staying at this Hampton Inn again.

Room Tip: Great location if you need to visit Indiana University.

Stayed here on a visit to IU. Nice location, clean room, very nice staff, ok breakfast. Have to agree with another poster, the beds were double's in our room. Thought they were supposed to be queens. Average property, nothing special.

Larry, Danielle, Ava and the others go out of their way for the customers and non customers. I drive an airport shuttle bus & the Hampton is my last stop before leaving for the Indianapolis Airport. These people make my passengers, and myself, feel welcome even when we just visit the vending machines or the restroom before leaving town. They sure put a smile on this shuttle bus drivers face...especially when they let me have a fresh baked, still warm cookie! Thanks guys & gals!

We stayed as a large group in this hotel while in town for an event. We were only there for a short stay, so I can't speak for it on a longer term stay.

The room & accommodations were nice, updated and clean.

The biggest issue we had with this hotel was the size of the beds. They were supposed to be full sized beds, but they seemed very narrow. We are a group of female athletes of a variety of sizes and they just seemed really small for everyone who was sharing with someone.

They did have a nice continental breakfast that was included in the price of the stay.

We didn't use the pool or gym facilities, but the seemed nice & clean.

I'd recommend this hotel, but would probably recommend a king sized bed if you are sharing or have larger adults in your party!

Thank you for taking the time to write a response, I'm glad you were happy with our hotel. I'm sorry our beds didn't meet your needs; if you stay with us again I would suggest booking rooms with a king and a pull-out sofa sleeper. Our sofa sleepers are doubles, which is the same size as the beds in the rooms with two beds; you'd have a little more space with the king. I'm glad everything else with your stay met your expectations, thank you again for taking the time to submit a response!
