My family stays here sometimes when we are in town visiting family. The last time I reviewed this hotel on Trip Advisor, I also included my thoughts on all the other places to stay in Sturgis so you may want to see that review from about two years ago.
Our room included two double beds. Other choices include a room with a king bed only or a room with a king bed and sofa sleeper. Our room did not have a microwave or mini refrigerator. I assume this is true of the other room choices too. Our room was clean and comfortable. The TV is still the tube style and around 25 channels are offered including HBO. In room Internet is available at no charge or you can go down to the lobby and use their computer. We used the computer in the lobby briefly with no issues. The room included a desk with office chair. If you plan on doing much typing on your laptop, this probably will not work well for you. I found the desk too high relative to the highest setting of the chair. The bathroom floor in our room (223) had some flex to it. Several tiles were cracked and I could see where they replaced some of the grout. Since the flex was not fixed, they will continue to battle this problem.
The pool has a typical size pool and hot tub plus a small exercise room. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub but did not have a chance to use the exercise room. I did look at the exercise room. It included three pieces of equipment and I am pretty sure it had a TV.
Breakfast is included for free. Like previous visits, I found the breakfast slightly better than similar hotels in this price range. In addition to all the usual cold items (muffins, yogurt, cereal, fruit, etc.) they also have waffles and two other hot items on a rotating schedule. Our first morning, the two rotating items were omelets and sausage patties. The second morning, the two rotating items were French toast sticks and sausage patties. I liked the sausage patties. Sometimes hotels in this price range have such cheap sausage it is not worth eating but that was not the case at the Hampton. I also liked the omelets. They were some they probably bought frozen from GFS and then heated up but they were still good.
We talked to the lobby staff and several occasions and always found them to be nice and helpful.
Would we stay here again? Yes. The Best Western across the street (actually located in Howe Indiana, not Sturgis) is cheaper than the Hampton by around $20 per night but the last time I was there, I noticed they were getting a little bit behind on maintenance. For the difference in price, the Hampton is a little nicer and has a little bit nicer breakfast. If you are on a budget, stay at the Best Western. If you can afford the $20 difference, stay at the Hampton and you will not be sorry you did.
Some people that stay overnight in Sturgis really have no interest in Sturgis. They stay there because every other hotel closer to South Bend is already sold out or too expensive on busy Notre Dame football weekends. If you find yourself in Sturgis with no idea where to eat, I suggest Fiesta Mexicana. It is about four miles north of the hotel on the corner of South Street and Centreville road. If you want to go see a first run movie at low prices, go north into Sturgis, turn right onto US-12 and see a movie at the Strand.
