We checked in on 9/9/11 and checked out 9/12/11. We had a heck of an experience, which is why I'm writing this review.
Due to a lack of communication and the "you get what you pay for" in employee attitude, we arrived at the Hampton Inn on 9/9/11 at around 11pm. We were promptly greeted and given our rooms. 2 rooms that were joined with a door. We were given a very fair rate, considering we only gave 2 hours notice.
Room was very quiet, extremely clean, and have a nice TV and wireless internet available at no charge. You are near an airport, so you can hear airplanes from 6am until around 10pm (noise decibels depends on the direction of the wind for when airplanes takeoff and land).
This hotel has a continental breakfast including, but subject to change: cooked sausage, eggs. self-made waffles, bagels, toast, cereal, and fresh hot coffee. Apple, orange, and pineapple juice available as well.
There are 2 desktop computers available for free in the lobby area. There is also coffee available 24 hours a day.
The pool, though claimed to be heated, was not heated the night we were there. Perhaps it wasn't necessary because we are from Arizona, and the high of 85 degrees was semi chilly for us.
Wireless internet is available for free in every room. You get your access code from the back of the pamphlet that has your key cards when given at the front counter.
All in all, this was a very nice hotel. The rooms are clean and smell great. Awesome water pressure and hot water when needed. I would suggest a room away from the airport, which may provide a better night sleep and not such an early morning with airplanes taking off. Bed are very comfortable and Just what you would expect from a Hilton hotel!
