Nestled behind a Shell station just off of Rampart and State Road 9 sets this Hampton Inn. I hear it's been there for around 10 years, and has undergone some modern renovations. On approach I see that the grounds are maintained minus the tree line that obstructs the entry.
The overall exterior building conditions looked good as does the driveway and parking lot. The grounds are well lit at night and there are surveillance cameras as well.
My check-in took a bit longer than I think it should have, the lady seemed to have lost her touch on the PC. The lobby is very nice, there you'll find access to computers, lots of free coffees and fruit. The dinning area is also impressive with lot's of room and perhaps one of the best hot breakfasts I've had. If you don't have time to sit and eat, they offer an on the go breakfast bag. There's a patio area where you can enjoy your meal outside if you wish, although there's not much to see but a river.
I took the elevator to the third floor to find my room, and I was informed by a friend that you do not! want a lower level room as you can hear every move a person makes above you. I enter my room to find it just the right temperature and it smelling clean and fresh, but right away I spot a burned out light fixture. That put me in inspection mode right away!
I start with the bathroom and find the floor clean as well as the furnishings BUT a quick look at the shower and I see a suspect shower head. I reached up to test the setting dial and find it stuck and the swivel was over tightened. The toilet is to close to the shower, its very odd! The toilet blocks the back half of the tub.
In the main part of the room it was nice to find a bottle of water, Chex Mix and mints on the armoire. A nice 27" LG HD LCD overlooks the bed, ahh yes it was nice to see a modern TV! Bed comfort was about average I'd say, the room has a digital climate control and the air unit was not loud at all. Nothing else special about to note about the room. The fitness room looks well taken care of and offers the usual workout machines. The hotel offers a massive meeting room and there is also coin laundry. The pool was undergoing a resurfacing, there's not much else to note as my check-out was quick.
