From the cheerful greeting at the front desk (this time the clerk actually reached over to shake my hand) to the beeping waffle machine at breakfast time, this place -- the first hotel after you turn off the ramp from eastbound I-70 -- is unmistakably a Hampton Inn.
However, there are a few kinks as well. It's tall for a Hampton, at seven storeys, and it has an unusual and confusing floor plan. The location right by the Interstate makes it a bit difficult to turn left (towards downtown Terre Haute) out of the parking lot -- a nimble U-turn is required. And watch out for the automatic swinging doors at the front entrance, or they'll whack you in the face.
In my guest room itself, there weren't night-lights as I have typically seen them in other Hamptons. And I found the controls for the shower very difficult to operate. But in general, this hotel had the expected features and services, including typical Hampton cleanliness and modern fittings, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if I were coming back to Terre Haute.
